I also have a THX Calibrated Panasonic 55VT50 that I was going to point the meter at when more confident and fiddle with the modes that were not done, which Matrix would be best for this one?
See post #1 for a summary of the thread, for the bits that appeal to you.
HCFR is a great tool for DIY Calibrators to get started, and coupled with the proven, accurate i1D3, will be more than enough to get a massive improvement in your display calibration.
The advanced use of profiling against other reference meters may produce technically more accurate results, but the goal for most DIY Calibrators is to get the display within an acceptable tolerance to the standard (our eyes cannot distinguish the differences less than 3DE, so I suggest that).
If you have professional budgets and pro equipment, then there are Pro software too.
I would recommend you learn about the controls available in your TV, and there are many, and get started by selecting the Plasma option within HCFR.
By all means, look to go back and try alternative matrices, but I would start with Plasma selection. This is a very time consuming hobby, so delve straight into your VT calibration.Edited by wl1 - 5/7/13 at 11:56pm
