I am a little confused though as George makes pro calibration sound like an absolute certainty, however the more I'm reading I'm learning that there are various numbers of ways to calibrate, with various different tools and various different control sets. So, in conclusion, and please correct me if I am wrong, but Pro Calibration is in, by no means, an exact science and in the end comes down to the Pro doing the Calibrating and what they feel is the best tool, control set and numbers to use?
In fact, I could probably have 2 different guys come in here at 2 different times and produce 2 very different results on the same set, correct?
You are right in that two different calibrators would likely come up with two different numerical values for your settings. Would you be able to tell the difference visually? Not likely unless one was far off and performed with a meter, equipment, and/or software that was off in some way. Or the person doing it was not familiar with your TV or not experienced enough in how to do it and/or just did not care.
On your other observation. . . I agree. I've tried many times to communicate that things do not always come across very congenial in this thread and it doesn't encourage. You shouldn't have to be made to feel you are intimidated or attacked. . . or implied that you are a troll.
Good luck on you new TV!
