Bummer, was hoping for Atmos or DTS:X. Is it at least 7.1? Hopefully the video quality makes up for it. A friend of mine say it on DirecTv on his 4K TV and said it was stunning.

Yea, I think you are right. I had forgotten that the 7500K with gains seemed to introduce a little clipping as well. No free lunch huh.

Sounds like it is time to just watch some movies and enjoy...

Thanks Dominic! Yes, this is EXACTLY what I have found. Most of my readings are in the 0.317, 0.335 range, give of take 0.001 or so. And as can be seen in Cine4home's charts, he winds up way to...

Under 6? IMO that's a pretty poor autocal result. Not on your part, but rather the software itself. Considering the autocal is using a meter for measurements (and not just some preset table or...

BTW, in case anyone is wondering, Yes, I can workaround the low blue issue by creating a custom profile or by adjusting the gains after the autocal. In doing so, however, I lose 5% brightness and...

In my experience (and confirmed later by Manni) running color autocal on custom profile makes things worse. Also as I understand it, you cannot run a GAMMA autocal on a custom profile - it must be...

It sounds reasonable. But most importantly, it sounds like you have done autocal both ways - using 1.8 and 2.2. Did you compare the results? I asked earlier and I think you said you didn't notice...
