So how does one identify a B stock model? Should I look for a specific serial number / build date?

I'm aware that you were not able to fully resolve the issue, just wondering if adjusting gamma to -1 (RGB all at -1) for 10 IRE helped mitigate the issue as it did on my set. The remaining IRE...

Yes. From my experience, anything beyond a 10 tick reduction will cause magenta lag on some sets. In fact, I've had to raise SAD (from default) on some sets to eliminate pre-existing magenta lag. ...

Have you attempted to adjust gamma at 10 IRE to mitigate the green push? While it doesn't completely eliminate it, it does reduce it.

I calibrated my friend's stock 151fd and it also had a green...

I found some time over the weekend to calibrate my 141fd.

Prior to diving into calibration, I verified voltages and measured black level. With SAD at 198 and RSTP at 1, my i1 Display Pro 3...

This is all anecdotal, since I've never owned an 09 60 inch set, but Feb 2009 build should fall in that category.

Fair enough. I gave up on trying to achieve OLED blacks on my Kuros because they were not designed to do so nor are they capable of doing so without any type of picture defects / artifacts. This is...

Actually, all boards default to 18, so setting it to 0 doesn't default RSTP to the panel specific value that was set at the factory.

If you have time, try setting RSTP to 1 and raise SAD until...

I have measured voltage increases over time and before and after a pulse meter reset, and while setting RSTP will not prevent the red tint, it will delay its inevitable appearance.

When/if the red tint returns, do what I did - lower SAD. MLL may be readable with SAD over 200 AND RSTP at 36 which you admittedly set it up to post reset. With RSTP at 1 and SAD at 228, my black...

I left RSTP at 1, since raising it is counter productive with regards to red tint. It rises internally as the panel accumulates hours anyways, so might as well leave it at 1 so it's always on the...

Like ISF calibration settings, plugging in values from another TV is not a good idea. You need a meter and calibration software to determine the optimal values.

Yeah you most likely have what is termed as a 9.5 gen 60 inch set. I've been hunting for one myself for several years with no luck.

Leave it alone until it becomes obvious on content.

You should consider yourself lucky that your set can handle VYF as low as 68. Is your set a 2009 build? I've heard those can handle lower VYF than the 2008 sets.

All of the 2008 sets I've played...

Numbers look good to me. You can always improve black level by lowering SAD or RSTP or a combination of both, but, as you know, it may cause artifacts, IR, etc.

Yes. Very fair considering the low amount of hours.

Just make sure it's not afflicted by red tinted blacks.
