I'm glad to hear that some people here have found my SM calibration settings useful; that's why I posted them, hoping to help some folks out. No calibration is "perfect" - there are numerous ways to tweak the settings, and I'm sure Orta is the same way that I am, we're not competing with each other for the "best" - some people will no doubt prefer how things look with one person's settings, others with another's settings. That's why we're here, to help each other out.
That said, I would highly recommend that anyone with any interest at all in all of this go pick up a meter and try doing your own calibrations. There's a lot of good reading in various forums - the curtpalme.com forums have good comparisons of the different meters at different price ranges, and the SpectraCal people have been great with quick answers to the questions I've asked them about the Spyder3, both before and after the purchase. The amateur level meters aren't what Chad and the pros use, but I think they give good results for your personal use. And once you have one, you can calibrate any TVs you have, and any friend's if you are so inclined (though I only do my friend's for free- maybe a bottle of my favorite adult beverage.
Since some people here have seemed to have found my settings useful, I'll be tweaking more this weekend. To my eyes on my TV the current settings look great, but I just enjoy getting in there and tweaking and trying different approaches. I'll post the tweaked results once I get them this weekend.
