I've followed this for a while now and wonder...
If you pay for a pro, what happens as your bulb ages, does the calibration change? Is a new one needed with each bulb change to keep the level of quality, or once its done the first time are you set and able to fine tune yourself?
How do you tell if your local AV store-recommended guy is good?
Is there a Dummies Guide to this for a smart guy, good learner (but not a computer geek), that hasn't figured out where all the settings are that you speak of? Where do the colorspace graphs come from? I can't find them in the manual yet. Are they all found in a Video Essentials type DVD, or do they come with calibration software and meter?
I had Jason do mine when I bought and its good, but green seems too high at times. I'm fine, but want to learn more and improve if I can (and can afford it). I can easily afford a good pro, but I just can't see paying big bucks and have it only last a year or so unless adjustments are either cheap or can be done by me.
Finally went digital: RS20, ISCO IIIs, DIY 10.5' wide torus screen, Stewart StudioTek 1.3 G3 with 4 way masking and adjustable image size
