After calibration, Blu Ray movies look incredible, TV as well, however:
1- Some games feel a bit blurry (current sharpness is down to 25 from 100)
2- Sometimes it looks a bit dark. I have Back light in 35, should I increase it to 60?
3- Should I use NORMAL instead of WARM when playing Wii U and PS3? Seems like the rest of the calibration upholds, I mean, the same color, tint, contrast an brightness seem to work on normal and warm...
congratulations for your callibration... i have used the blue filter too and it correct "some" but not the blue-purple problem entirely.
1- Disable all "enhacements". The sharpness should be 0 (if you increase that value, you are increasing the original sharpness source value, and it's not needed).
2- Download AVS 709 Bluray, set your video source to YCBCR and make the "basics". In black pattern test try to adjust black to keep bar number 17 flashing, after that, do the white clipping pattern to make sure you have correctly setted contrast and bright. IT's the "best" way to callibrate "good blacks and good whites":
Take the AVS 709 Blu-Ray in my Samsung Blu-Ray player fixed to YCBCR. I check each pattern from "basics" section:
- Black clipping: making that bar number 17 continue flashing adjusting the brightness (to mantain a good black level).
- APL clipping: making that ALL the "white" bars flash and with the "black-grey" bars continue flahsing up to bar nº 19 (to mantain a good contrast and brigtness).
- White Clipping: making that ALL the "white" bars flashing (all flash up to 253 with no decoloration or pinking or clipping). Re-check Black clipping and APL clipping to view if there are changes or everything goes well.
- Color Bars: making with the blue filter in STANDARD and MOVIE modes that all the bars keeps flashing equals and adjusting Hue and Sat to do that.
- Color Clipping: making that all the bars up to center number keeps flashning with no clipping in any color.
3- Use that you prefer, WARM 2 it's nearest to D65 but that "config" it's made for movies... personally, i prefer FULL RGB (0-255) for videogames in PS3 and LIMITED RGB (16-235) in WII U (because WII u it's fixed to limited) and i prefer WARM 2 but it's not "mandatory" with videogames.Edited by connector - 2/5/13 at 7:33am
