Since I have a new plasma and I have to wait to get it professionally calibrated, is it best to use a config from this thread, or just run the Disney WOW and calibrate it that way?

That's a pretty darn light description/explanation. I guess I will have to get some different patterns and do my own testing.

They don't really go into detail, just what they do

Seems more like what someone thinks they do.

Well since he was able to prove it with his test patterns not sure how much "thinking" is needed. There was a consensus agreement between the calibrators there were there of which to use when.

either works.


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.

Okay sounds good. Who's did you start with? I was going to try MightMouseusf. I figure I should take down my default settings first though because I am sure I will screw it all up.

I honestly don't remember, it was so long ago.


you can reset to defaults easily through the menu, but if you've made any changes before hand, it might be useful to have a record of those settings.


also, note that in the menu you can select an option that says something like 'apply settings to all inputs'. I would recommend you do this, input those settings, then turn that off. that way you can make changes to you second input for gaming without affecting the first input for movies.
