Hey you guys, i got the Colormunki meter today, thanks to amazon that got here in a day. i wasn't expecting that. i decided on the Colormunki because it's basically the same meter as i1Display Pro, but since i am using HCFR anyway for the TV.
anyway, here's my first attempt at calibrating the standard mode using the regular white balance (2 pt). the reason i only used 2pt white balance as oppose to 10pt, because my TV's micro dimming feature is only available in standard mode, and not available in Movie mode, which has the 10pt white balance option. anyway here are the results.
i accidentally deleted the BEFORE reading. so here is the AFTER. but the BEFORE was pretty bad, it was something like 10~20 Delta E.
but as you can see, i got it down to less than 3 Delta E, i was pretty proud of myself for being the first try.
one thing i am confused tho, the CIE gamma. i followed the HCFR's instruction and adjusted the CMS so all the primary and secondary colors line up as best as i could. but i used the same meter to calibrate my workstation apple monitor, everything well fine with the Xrite software calibration, but i ran HCFR and measured my monitor (not the tv), and the CIE graph shows that my primary colors and some secondary colors did not get lined up by the software to be within the reference boxes. i know that sRGB and REC 709 are suppose to be the same in terms of CIE gamma, but this makes me wonder, wouldn't it be better to have all the primary colors outside of the box? because earlier today when i was calibrating the TV, when i got to the CIE graph and CMS section, i remember HCFR measured my TV's GREEN and RED were beyond the reference box, but i followed the instruction in the HCFR guide and moved those color points to be within the reference box. i just don't know what to trust.
