what I've done is plug in a config from this thread and used that as my starting point. adjusting things like brightness/contrast/tint/color are easy to do with a test disc, so I would always adjust those after. but doing a 10pt color is not possible without a meter, so I plugged in those values, and then loaded up a greyscale ramp. if it looks smooth, you're done. when I did, I noticed some green tint partway through, so I went back into the 10pt calibration and 'fiddled' with the values until it blended in. definitely not ideal, but I assume if the other 9pts lined up, I'm still better off than using the default values. warm2 is WAY off, and warm1 is a touch blue.
