I have had Chad before do one of my tvs and he was great at what he did, so I was really interested when I saw these patterns from him.
Now to the point. On my LGLW5600, I took a look at the Color bars in the Custom Patterns. I know it is the wrong approach, but I was playing around with my CMS and the TV's color filters. I was using the Color and tint in the CMS to try and by eye( i know) dial the primaries and secondaries in some.
I think it actually made an improvement. Is this possible or just my thinking. I can't get it right of course, but it seemed to get closer.
With the red filter on the TV, I was able to get the yellow box to blend completely with the background of red by adding and subtracting the Yellow color and Yellow tint, but the Magenta is still a small bit off. Cyan is blended nice with the Green Filter, but yellow is a small bit off. Stuff like that. Seems my Primaries would need adjusted more to make it closer, but you get the idea.
Is this really stupid to do this? If I had the free cash right now, this would be mute and I would have a meter, but right now, just seeing if this is something that has been tried.
I am sure there is someone out there who has tried to do this without a meter. If I knew which way to go with the primaries now to fix those little differences in the Magentas and yellows and stuff, I think I would be ok.
It is ok to tell me this is not the right way to do it. I already know I can't get it right without equipment. Just wondering if anyone has looked at this pattern from Chad and tried this.
BTW, Thanks Chad for doing these.
