Here are some settings I posted elsewhere for my 4910. After I posted these, I decided to dial back the brightness setting to 0. The autocal through the Lumagen Mini gives great results and is easy to do once you get over a bit of the learning curve of using Calman's software. You will need to overcome that learning curve regardless of whether you are using Calman to autocal the JVC directly or through a Lumagen.
Color Profile, Color Temp., and Gamma are all set to Custom 1
Contrast, Color, and Tint = 0
Brightness = 3
In the Color Profile menu, Color Management = Off
In the Color Temp menu, Correction Value = 6500K, Gain Red = 0, Gain Green = -10, Gain Blue = -13, Offset Red = -2, Offset Green = 0, Offset Blue = -4
In the Gamma menu, Correction Value = 2.2, for the color white I have Picture Tone = 0, Dark Level = 1, Bright Level = 0, all others at defaults
I use Calman's 125-point autocal feature with a Lumagen Mini, where I manually set the black floor to 0.01 cd/m2 and set it to calculate a BT.1886 gamma curve. This mainly approximates a 2.4 gamma for most stimulus levels, but I had to set the JVC to 2.2 for the autocal to effectively achieve the correct curve. I tried other gamma settings in the JVC, but for some reason values closer to my actual target didn't leave enough headroom (or perhaps there is some other explanation) for the Calman/Lumagen combo to do its thing. In any event, I really like the results.
