So it is probably correct to say that changing the color or picture settings shouldn't mess with the accuracy of the White Balance settings.
3. However, grayscale calibration has EVERYTHING to do with the accurate production of colors on a TV. A true white or gray is achieved when the three primary colors are in correct balance. Measuring the "whiteness" of gray at various light intensities measures the accuracy of the balance of the three primary colors and is how one determines how to adjust the White Balance settings to achieve a well-balance reproduction of colors.
4. Grayscale measurements and the adjustment made to White Balance using those measurements actually has nothing to do with the blackness of the blacks... that's determined by the Brightness setting. That and perhaps the Backlight setting.
5. Other things in addition to the White Balance settings affect the accuracy of the colors. Hue and Color Temperature are other important settings that affect the accuracy of the colors that are displayed.

4. I agree with an explanation. The brightness and backlight settings do affect the black levels, but accurate Grayscale helps ensure that black images are as close to black as possible and white images are as close to white as possible.
Grayscale is more than just black and white, the color gray is created when
the three primary colors(Red,Blue,Green) are blended perfectly to create the
color grey by adjusting the correct gain and bias controls, the results assures
that the tv will create better black and white images.
So technically the grayscale adjustments do not affect the blacks the same way Brightness and Backlight do, but when grayscale is calibrated correctly it will
help the tv create better black images.
