If you have a very large screen your best bet would be a custom curve with a lower nit target such as 800 or 900. When you switch to one of the custom curves, you don't have to worry about the Gamma...

After some testing of the various custom gammas, I have found that the files starting with "140" work best in my setup. I have also found it more effective to have dedicated modes for movies that...

You raise a good and important point, Kevin; we should always check ref black while in flashing mode, even if we use pause initially. As for the "200" I think Manni said it's only for reference so...

You want to clip white at 4,000 (especially if using a custom curve ending with 4,000) and resolve just above black (bar 68). Setting black is very subtle, I suggest going right up near the screen...

No, at present, the best the OPPO can do in Strip Metadata mode is resolve black to 7.5% which represents a noticeable amount of black crush. This is precisely why the Panasonic is superior in this...

Hi Stef,

I have both the OPPO and the Panasonic. A few posts up, Manni suggested that we should make the BR and CR adjustments in the player. That said, I have tested the clip points with...

Just to be sure, is it advisable to do the autocal before or after Manni's custom curves are loaded?

Stanger, in looking at your SDR BT2020 picture are you sure the PJ was not in gamma D when you took that shot? It looks unusually dark for SDR BT2020.

I have seen this happen with the Oppo too, so might be a JVC thing. Either way, Gamma should always the last thing we check before watching a movie.

Congrats on your ChadB calibration, I am sure it's a sight to behold. Can you confirm that he created a custom HDR curve for your particular setup and not just a tweak to Gamma D?

Awesome work, Manni!!!. I would most definitely welcome a low lamp version of your curve as I really like running in that mode. Something about red-lining our machines doesn't sit well with me.

I could be wrong and hopefully Manni will confirm, but the only difference between this curve and the one earlier today is the roll-off point (4,000 instead of 3,000). If that is correct, then the...
