Looks pretty good to me! A couple of things:


My red error doesn't look that good at 100% red. Run the saturation sweeps. You might find that getting 100% red so accurate makes the lower...

Well I wouldn't say the line is NORMAL since it's a form of IR. But I think it will go away if you take steps to correct it. Run the screen wipe for a bit after watching a letterbox movie. And...

The red dithering in letterboxes is normal and is probably the right setting. But if it bothers you lower brightness by a tick or two until it goes away. Just be aware that you might lose some shadow...
