So here is what I noticed last night:

I've tried 2.3 and 2.4. They tend to slope to lower gamma values as the IRE increase. It's a brand new unit, so the lamp break in may resolve some of this. I know i'll have to re-calibrate anyway....

Ok so the thing I noticed about the noise that MPC makes is that it goes away after the PJ is on for maybe 20 minutes. It still makes noises when I bring up the lens adjust pattern or switch...

I do have a meter and will be calibrating it. I always had thought a color shift in contrast meant to dial it back.

Would you say start my calibration with contrast at 0 and see if the pink is...

Kris,

I followed your advice and used HDMI Standard and set contrast to 0. However, using either Spears and Munsil or the AVS disc, bars 230-234 look pinkish when flashing. Lowering contrast to -2...
