I then noticed (while in the service menu of my KRP) Pioneer had actually put 4% windows as part of there display testing in there service menu. That was the main reason I created 4% window patterns and use them for calibrating my KRP currently. I personally don't believe a Pioneer plasma would benefit from APL patterns for calibration. Using APL patterns as a test source after a calibration to see how your Pioneer reacts would be beneficial. My Panasonic VT50...completely different story and has more of an aggressive ABL. I achieved better results when using my 4% APL patterns by meter and by eye. Best of luck calibrating your KRP!
Great, thanks Ryan
Yeah I know about the 4% patterns after studying the service manual, have you made any adjustments in the SM?
I too have been using the AVSHD709 with calman 4, however I tried yours and GCD today and they are not compatible with Cal v4 window call routine, had to go back and forth, must be set for the newer cal v5, so had to revert back to the AVS disk again for now
I'm looking to eventually get cal v5 and an i1d3pro, to profile against my newish i1pro and so will use your standard 4% windows as you suggest, I thought the apl's would probably be more suited to the newer plasma's due to ABL differences.
How have you got on with blue on your 600m as this is my highest dE, which I think is down to the filter properties, any tips welcome
