Color R 100
Color G 102
Color B 100
I also turned Sharpness down to 0.
It looks like HDMI and Component have their own 'user' settings. When I calibrated via HDMI and changed back to STB via component, I noticed that the values changed.
I tried these settings with my Motorola STB via Component and noticed that something was wrong. When watching football players with white jerseys and names in green, I couldn't read the name. I tried with other modes and I could read the name.
Does that mean Contrast is too high or do I need to use a different degamma or color temp?
When trying to calibrate contrast with DVE and HDMI, I didn't see any 'blooming' nor 'color changes' until around 90, so I set it at 90. It's possible that 90 is good for the DVD player, but not for the Motorola STB.
It's so hard to calibrate when there are 3 color modes, 7 degamma modes, and 11 color segment modes. Also, the manual says that "Saturation and Tint functions are supported under Video mode only."
Some degamma modes seem to be more detailed than others. I'm very confused! Seems like we need a professional to look at this.
