According to the Colour & Greyscale Calibration for Dummies (http://www.curtpalme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10457
) site, which is what I used to guide me through process, it is completely optional to do the CMS. Besides, it looked like I had to then use the AVS HD 709 Disc (which i do have) and like BHazard said, I was quite spent after doing for 4 hours( I am a total noob at this kinda stuff), then seeing how involved it was also going to be, yet SUPER SATISFIED with results of the IRE 20 point calib. I still might tackle... someday.
This is what they said after doing the greyscale alone...
"...Sit back and enjoy a movie or two and notice how much better the colours, detail, and image depth is now that everything is closer to perfection."
And this is what they say about CMS...
..."This section should be considered optional as most displays do not have the advanced color management system (CMS) required to set primaries and secondaries correctly. Even if your display does not have a CMS, at the very least you'll gain a better understanding of your display's colour reproduction by measuring your display's primary and secondary values and how it all fits in with greyscale"
And you are right, most folks don't even bother with CMS.
