Depends on where u want the 6500K to be . I didnt explained well . If you have ur TV connected to the PC and lets say you are watching TV series which are shot normally , like normal broadcast , digital shows , or you shot ur home made 1080@60p Movies with your Sony NEX5R they are show all in natural white balance . So if you have the setting for the tv in Natural , you will get the natural colors of them . If you engage Warm 2 mode it will make that tv show , video cam material look somewhat close to 6500K which will be unrealistic to how the image looked when filmed , especially if you were the one shooting it and knowing how it looked for real , you will understand how redicilous is warm 2 . Still its toleratable and it might ease someones eyes when watching and make sport shows look like movies.
HOWEVER The real problem that setting Warm 2 will be that when u watch a Blu-ray movie they are already shot with the correct color filters , meaning If you Watch a movie that was presented in the cinema in 6500K and u engage Warm 2 It will make it all reddish and much much more warmer . Definately horrific thing is watching a movie at like 2500K -2700K .
So again if you are editing a Word Document or Watching Tv serries and u want to make the colors close to 6500K i would understand warm 1 or warm 2 but doing that on a movie , especially one thats shot with warm colors , it will make the movie so reddish and so pale and ugly . From reading this thread no one really considers the fact that most movies are shot in 6500K or in colors the producer wanted his movie to be . If you put the Warm 2 it can make ur TV news , shows and so look warm , but this warm doubles when u watch a movie ( like if you have a transpared slightly reddish layer of glass and when u put another layer ofcourse it will make the things alot way reddish .
I hope i was not too techy and what i wrote is easy to be understood . Ofcourse , as i said before everyone chooses how to set his tv and some people have very very different opinion to what a picture should look . We have a 4K digital Cinemas here , brand new ones . I believe they use Sony 4K projectors , also ofcourse 35mm Film too , but watching the movies there , the colors are close to Watching a Blu-ray at home with the colors set to Natural . Watching almost any blu-ray in warm 2 is redicilous .
