May be, but bear in mind that (at least in the US) there is Cinema (which apparently can be adjusted every which way but loose) and then there is THX Cinema, which is much more locked down. Maybe that's you're thinking of?

Nope. My English skills are sufficiently advanced to differentiate between "Cinema" and "THX Cinema", thanks all the same. Although you are correct to say that THX Cinema is even more locked down than Cinema is.

If you read the article that slimoli linked, it says that the CNET settings turned out to be the most accurate on their 2 sets, and the CNET settings were calibrated in Cinema mode!

However, I do agree with the article... when you duplicate others settings on your set, you will most likely make it worse rather than better.

Sorry, but you seem to have totally misunderstood what the author actually said. If you had read and understood the article in full, you would know that the author went on to say that he would not use the cnet settings. This was partially due to the magenta push, and partly due to the Gamma tracking being out. He finished the article by confirming he calibrated the set he had on Pro.

As would any professional calibrator, in fact.

No, I did understand the article. I was trying to point out that sometimes it is a good thing to try to open your mind to other points of view that may be different from what you believe to be true.

Of course any calibrator will use the Pro modes. That is what they are for! However, it is true that cinema mode has every setting that is available in the Pro modes (at least in the US versions). If a calibrator used cinema mode to calibrate the set, he will most likely get the same results as using the Pro modes, the adjustments exactly are the same.

BTW, I was a video engineer for 35 years. Please do not insinuate that I don't understand things as well as you!
