I have a question about the VT60, calibration, and watching ice hockey. Yes...all of that.
I watch a lot of hockey and notice that my CNET settings look great on everything I watch, except ice hockey. I know that sometimes its signal dependent but most of the time, the ice looks more brownish, than it does white like it does in real life. What's interesting is that the uniform colors and everything else looks great...but not the ice. And since the ice is brownish, the black puck doesn't stand out like it should...it kind of blends. During games, sometimes I will adjust the panel to Warm1 or Normal instead of Warm 2...or adjust the gamma a bit. That makes the ice more white with more puck contrast, but the colors of the uniforms and other things fade.
I moved to my office during the game last night and my little crappy 24" LED shows the ice as bright and white as it is in person. The difference is striking and makes the game easier to watch.
If I get my set calibrated, will the ice be white instead of brownish? Or is there something with the ABL and the dim panel that makes the ice always "dirty" as in the "dirty white" phenomenon inherent in plasmas?
