Can't say I noticed this particular scene's color. But having modified my CRT RPTV recently
(1-dB attenuator for red component input) to reduce a long-tolerated red push (color decoder), I've been constantly tweaking user controls to achieve 'normal' color again. As you might know, one display calibration that might be off enough to influence the hue of dark scenes is gray scale. The calibration forum has lots of information on procedures and gear for checking gray scale or hiring a ISF calibrator equipped for the task.
For dark scenes here flesh tones are often too reddish, which always reminds me of amateur still photography. Whether those with displays calibrated for nearly flat gray scale see reddish flash tones with low lighting, or perhaps your green tint, seems an important point. This expert calibrator
, also notices the frequent shifts in accurate hues between ads and different programming. So here it's now a question of figuring out what apparent color 'errors' might be caused by misadjustments in my display, or by production settings--or a combination. Overall, my added red-push attenuator has taken the irksome slight purplish tint out of deep-blue clothing, my goal, while letting me adjust the seemingly normal flesh tones I've had for 7+ years. My display doesn't have 'warmer/colder' color settings, but changing such settings when available should influence hues. -- John
