Get your brightness and contrast adjusted first. On the SXRD you can go all the way up to 50 or more foot lamberts and still get a great looking picture.
Then adjust your red saturation to get it dialed in properly using the color control.
Then worry about hue/tint although I find it rarely needs to be set on these SXRD TVs (and I have calibrated three of them now, four if you count my optical block replacement). It's not a big deal if the color points are somewhat outside of the triangle.
Finally worry about gray scale. Remember that when adjusting gray scale it is SUBTRACTIVE. If you have too much blue the best way to handle it is to back off green and red a little bit. Remember that GAIN is your high brightness color output and BIAS is low brightness color. They are related to each other though, so adjusting a bit of BIAS can still dramatically affect calibration at the higher brightness levels.
TURN OFF THE JUNK YOU DONT NEED!!
I have the following set for advanced on my calibration;
Black Corrector OFF;
Clear White OFF;
Live Color OFF;
Any of these being turned on is going to screw with your measurements, although I did need low Gamma to get my gamma to track 2.2.
LIKEWISE you need to turn off the Auto Iris during calibration, otherwise things are going to be totally out of whack. Set the IRIS to low or medium and calibrate, afterwards switch it back to auto if you like. Failing to do this will result in large gamma swings when the set is adjusting brightness dynamically at lower IREs.
