A few questions for you...
1) are you still using an nvidia card, or is it an ati card now?
2) this "yellow skin tone" problem, do you have a test image that exemplifies this problem that you could send me? I haven't really noticed this issue, but then again, I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for either.
Oh, I'm still here and well past my two week no hassle return period, so I'm in it for the long haul! Relentless tweaking continues, as does the paranoia.
2) Not really. It doesn't require a test image for me. All I need do is watch a movie or look at a picture of a couple white dudes. The issue is quite simply a lack of proper hue in caucasian flesh tones. They tend to look yellowish as opposed to the "pinkish hue" one would relate to "white" skin. It's very obvious when I move an image between my 24" and the LG. Faces tend to look olive and lack pink/red highlights/lowlights.
I have an additional layer of nonsense to deal with as I'm looking at a very accurate monitor on my left with an extended desktop. I can easily move a picture or a video between the two in real time and compare the IQ.

May just be how LG's XD engine technology displays colors (Yellowish) because Sony Bravia has more of a redish tone to the image and Samsung DNie has more of a blueish tone
Admittedly, hue and tint tweaking are a lazy, messy way of dealing with the issue. It impacts overall PQ on so many levels. I can only assume the problem is buried in the grayscale somewhere. I do have an i1D2 and I'm about to run out and purchase a calibration DVD. Hopefully this guide
will lead me to the promise land.
