Nice picture Randy.Youve changed.
Calibeye what's wrong with the colors? Accurate grayscale makes accurate colors but you need meter. you'll drive yourself nuts trying too get it right and youll probably never get it right.you can only move the white balance controls a notch or two IF you see something obvious( the red bias needed to be turned down a few notches on mine to make blacks blacker).Did you crank up color too 65 and then adjust tint too get an overall tint average for various different skin tones on various programs. Turning flesh control down 2 notches might help oversaturated skin color on some shows a bit
The way I'm trying it now
and the key is getting the brightest white patches(watch various shows with color control turned to zero) the right color with the gains,then matching the less bright parts to the brightest ones with bias like I've described in previous post.You should see some Mild pink color in the brightest white patches ( you should not be seeing blue,magenta,bluegreen,yellowgreen or superbright torchlike whites or flat/dull whites.) Contrast has to be turned down so on some screens the brightest whites/patches don't look like a torch compared to rest of screen.I'm using gamma-1 too edit gone back to gamma 0.it works best on mine.
I'm not near tv Now but will get more accurate description the color of brightest whites I Have
Edit the brightest whites/bright white patches on mine are a very very pale pink yellow color temperature( have to be in a pitch black room).You can't completely get rid of the overblown whites on this tv.You would have to put the contrast down to an unwatchable level and use too red/warm of a color temperature.
Edit --too adjust colors write down all Your settings and reset regular tv menu,set contrast to around 75-85( could try it with 100contrast but be sure too turn it back too around 80 for regular tv watching),turn color to zero.all extra settings off, gamma0,brightness around 55 or higher.On a total sunny day at around 12 noon,watch tv until you see the brightest white you can find, pause it,look at something pure white outside like a big white wall,fence( something far away is better)Observe the color on wall surface,then match the bright white on tv to outside white wall with gains.then later in the evening find a screen with average brightness with various bright white patches on it like ive described in previous post then make color of the darker parts the same color as bright white patches with bias control.Repeat this for 4 or 5 days.This is the best way I've found too get colors.you have too take breaks too let your eyes reset/adjust.adjusting gains effects the darks quite a lot, and adjusting bias effects brights but not nearly as much of effect as gains effecting darks.
****If your tv looked like mine when I got it on warm2 setting,knowing what I know now I've got redbias 23,greenbias25,bluebias25,redgain25green gain,23,bluegain20
