Just got to see my results from last night's calibration with Beta 1072 - unbelievable the results I'm getting!
Have also found by calibrating the Service Menu White Balances Cool, Medium and Warm, all to Warm settings, has greatly stabilized the TV, and again helped with the improved appearance. Have also found doing the SM WB RGB Cuts, it was better to set Calman to 20IRE instead of 30. Faster and more stable results, then only the odd click after for 30 to fall into line. The 2/10 Point Setting is now left on 2 Point - 2 Point for me to calibrate, and 10 Point for either the XE or Duo.
Will tweek last night's results with the newly downloaded Beta 1092. Will be looking to see if the 125 Point time results are improved or not.
Thanks to the programers at Spectracal from getting us out from the old, dingy, dirty Yellow final results - love it! Keep up the good work, and I'll never have to buy another TV again! Well - until OLED, Passive 3D, and 4K comes down to my price range!
First results are in: program pulls in about 25% faster. (It appears some of the settings I like to use, are now being retained from my last calibration, others are going back to defaults. Now if we can only remember all of them, it would save some setup time, and trying to remember them all!)
Grayscale was previously having to be redone 4 to 5 times before I was mostly happy with the results. Now, was doing great, and it looked like only 1 calibration had to be done, and I'd be really happy with the results! BUT, got to 10IRE, and it clicked twice, and were on the older versions it would be almost perfect, this time, less than perfect. It appears that either Calman or the Radiance, clicked back to the underlying Program, just when the Meter clicked it's last click, throwing off the calibration. A second sweep corrected 10IRE, and tightened up all the other IREs, and in a lot closer tolerance. I was using 0.40 for the target. Now getting 0.10, with overall average of 0.30. Better then my manually calibrated 0.36. No more weird looking wild swings just on the last click!
Looks like either something needs to be done to stop the whatever that's switching back to the underlying programming, or some kind of delay be implemented after the very last click.
Currently doing the 125 Point. Will report back the results tomorrow.
125 Point Calibration was done in 28 minutes, instead of the usual 30 to 35 minutes. Grayscale had very little change.
iScan Duo AutoCal on the downstairs LG - took a lot longer, with a lot more sampling, and not near the results from the XE and the 125 Point.
