However, IIRC I couldn't really get any higher than 36.5ft/L (which was around 63-64 for picture) so I figured I'd give myself a little headroom.
Yup pretty much... I find that 35 ftL is actually the bang on reference from reading around. THX refers to that number in their little blurbs on their website. Tom quoted some 120ish number as the Gods Rule of Thumb starting point (but only if it does not ruin other aspect of picture performance from what I understand). What are you using for test patterns? I have several and have not settled on one yet. They all give a slightly different light output result. Getgray is just over 1 ftL lower than DVE HD's "white box" because..... They use a different size box and the larger the box the less light the screen puts out.
DVE HD and AVS709's white box are the closest to eachother. Getgrays are huge in comparison. Might not matter for most measurements but the +1 ftL difference with Getgray kinda bothers me. They are all great disks.
Which coloromiter are you using? Also are you usign colorHCFR?
Until I get my greyscale nailed down, my favorite settings for Blueray and DVD (From an actual Blueray Player) over HDMI (to a PZ85 that is) are still 60 Pic, 52 Bri, 36 color, -6 Tint, 50 sharp on Cinema and Warm. I am sacraficing a little luminance of Color versus Grey to slightly desaturate Red and Green (which is not really all that saturated IMO to begin with). Peak white output is 35ftL and Gamma is average 2.2 (another sweetspot).
