I received my 1080UB this week and am trying to perform an initial rought calibration using HCFR & an EyeOne LT colormeter.
I used to own an Epson TW700, and it seemed to work differently for calibrating, namely that you had to choose between calibrating perfect greyscale using RGB, or perfect colour balance with RGBCMY. When you adjusted RGB, it eliminated the RGBCMY settings you chose, and vice-versa.
My questions on the 1080UB are as follows:
1. Is there a dedicated 1080UB tweak thread? And if not, is this the best place to post calibration questions?
2. Does the 1080UB allow for perfect greyscale and gamma settings with RGB, AND allow you to dial in the colour balance with RGBCMY?
3. During RGBCMY adjustments, on the 1080UB there is an added adjustment for each colour called "Brightness". What is the best method for calibration? Is it to leave the Brightness setting at 0 and only use the hue and saturation adjustments? If so, then colour balance cannot be dialed in perfectly for each colour as with green, for example, I have saturation & brightness at -64 and it is still not quite at reference. Whereas cyan for example I hardly have to touch the brightness. Could someone explain how this works?
4. More of a PS3 interaction question: Why can't I get the PS3 to pass pluge (blacker than black) bars on the brightness test patterns? And most importantly, with it not passing pluge, does it affect the pq as compared to a device that can pass pluge?
