Hi everyone, greetings from Argentina. First of all I apologize in advance about my English, it’s not my native language, so I hope you can understand me.
I’ve recently bought an LG 32Lk450 LCD TV and I’m very happy with it. After reading in this forum about the panel lottery, I took a macro photo of the screen and I can say that the panel is the S-IPS versión, with the chevron type pixels. By the way, the product number on the sticker reads 32LK450-SA.AWG, may be the SA prefix means South America, anyway I don’t know, but it has at least 3 less characters compared with the others examples I saw here.
Well, now I want to calibrate the TV and I run into several limitations to do it, and with limitations I mean:
Obviously I don’t have any dedicated hardware tool to do it (light meters, colorimeters, don´t know if the names are correct anyway I don’t know how to use them)
I don’t have neither a Blue Ray Disc player, DVD-HD player, PS3 or Xbox360.
The only equipment I have is a desktop PC near the TV set with an AMD videocard with HDMI output (a basic Radeon HD5450).
I really want to use the patterns of the AVS HD709 disc (HDMV versión, full disc) to calibrate the TV, and the only way to reproduce it, is mounting the iso image in a virtual Blue Ray device and send it through HDMI with PowerDVD (versión 12).
The question is if it is posible do the calibration process in that way. If the answer is yes, do I need to change the color space output in the ATI Catalyst Control Center from RGB to YCbCr?. ¿Is it posible to do it over HDMI? .
And about the pixel format do I need to keep the 4:4:4 settings?.
In the worst scenario, if the answer to all the above questions is no, the only way left to do the calibration is using the mp4 files from the AVS HD709. In this case can I play the mp4 files directly from the usb port of the TV with the integrated media player?.
Thanks in advance and again sorry for the language and the long post.
