So, I have to admit to a BIG rookie mistake. I had inadvertently left warm1 on viewing your cal. I mean of all the.....
I must have seen 'warm1' so many times and just assumed it was warm2. Oh well.... No wonder I was seeing blue-white - it would have totally futzed up the 2p reading I did. When I get home later tonight I'll pull another for comparisons sake.
So now with the correct settings, all double checked, I do see a lot of red. Very pinkie flesh tones. I think this was reported by another member also who has a 64"
A good test I did was to visit CNN HD and check out their faces in the studio. They have their faces covered in foundation all theatrical style. Your cal is showing way too much red for me.
I also notice the whites are a bit too strong. The difference between light and dark is too contrasty. A quick view of TDK emphasizes this. Blacks are nice.
I'm still perplexed about the fL variation between our readings. I would expect a small difference, but not +/-14fL
Hopefully someone else with a meter and your size TV can do a quick measurement for us on your settings, that would be great.
The purpose of me saying this is to show the difference across the range. If we can somehow document this, it would be good for all.
