I recently got the Disney WOW Bluray and spent last night going through the entire disc. (When I say the entire disc I mean I went through basically EVERYTHING over about 3 hours, including the entire 2nd disc that only had reference quality material on it). I first set everything according to the Beginner settings and then moved to the Expert/Advanced settings (I don't quite remember how it was named).
Honestly, I have to say I didn't find that much was needed on my setup. I have a 1080P Sanyo projector displaying 110" in a dedicated media room (completely
void of exterior light and is entirely painted in a non-reflective black).
The only setting that I changed to any real degree was brightness, which went +5 over default. Contrast was left at 0 (default) and Color and Tint were both set to +3 over default. Sharpness was tightened up slightly.
This is not to say the disc is not worth getting, because I found it to be quite informative and very easy to use, I just wish it got a bit more in-depth with calibration, but perhaps that is beyond what can be done without high-end calibration equipment. I plan to adjust my 42" LCD this evening using the disc.
Unless I'm wrong it seemed like the only real video calibration available was for Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Color/Chroma and Tint/Hue
Is there any way to accurately set Red/Green/Blue and Gamma?
I saw the Gamma display, but should I attempt to "eyeball" the calibration to adjust the gamma so that the 2.2 field appears to be the one that blends into the background the best?
Also, it seemed like for Contrast and Brightness, regardless of how dark or bright the screen got, I could never see the items that were supposed to be invisible. It was ALWAYS invisible. What I ended up doing was adjusting each setting until I was just able to start seeing the +1% visible star or set of boxes.
Finally, if I went between the expert and beginner brightness/contrast calibrations it required different calibration, which was odd to me. If I set it according to the expert diagrams it was always considerably off from what appeared to be necessary for correct settings on the beginner diagrams.
I know this was a lot of text for my first post, but any comments and advice is greatly appreciated
