I plan to do more experimenting with the geeksquad settings to see if I can improve. Skin tones were way red on their settings. I also like my sharpness up a bit more.
I also had them send me a copy of the calibration charts and report but it came through blank. I will see if it can be resent and post if I get it.
Yes, please update whenever you get report charts.
There are generic issue with calibration:
1. what works on one TV might not be the same on another, even the same model, it's unique per TV sample. BTW Robbin's TV is 80", where yours is 70"
2. Calibration is usually done to single point on a screen, somewhere at center. If you move sensor even 2" out of that calibrated position new resulting charts will be different, unless your TV has perfect uniformity (main has not).
3. subjective perception what looks good vs calibrated to D65. in short - calibrated to D65 will result in weak contrast, but you'll see less color clipping. Some prefer color clipping as it gives "punch" to resulting image.
