When I used color mgmt and the NORMAL temp, I got close with the color filters, but not as close as using WARM with no CM and +7 tint and color saturation of 37. That is the only way for me to get all three colors to balance with the filters in the BD version of DVE.
All these changes effect each other sometime a lot. I guarantee if you watch it with the Warm setting for a day or two, it will be hard to look at white areas without seeing them as bluish. White should be white and that is a tell tail sign that the gray scale is too high with normal.
Another thing to remember about Tom's settings is that they are AFTER he changed the SM settings, so with changing those to what they should be for your individual glass, then his settings wouldn't work. There are variation in the panels as we have all heard before so any SM changes would be individual display dependent, not universal.
I am very pleased with my settings where they are and cannot imagine they could get much better with a pro calibration but who knows for sure?
