I’m doing the SDR pre-calibration procedure on my B7 using your test patterns played back by an Oppo 203 player. I reset ISF Expert (Dark) to defaults to start.

), for Brightness Flashing Bars I stop seeing 16 flashing at brightness 52 from my seating position, but I do see it flashing up close. At 51 I don’t see it flashing up close. Which is a better choice? Also, are nearly all of Advanced Brightness Flashing Bars supposed to be dark? Do I need to do cmeter-based verification of the black level?
For Contrast Flashing Bars, I had to lift contrast from 85 to 99 before 235 stopped flashing. However, when I go to Advanced Black & White Flashing Bars after lifting the white point, I can’t see dark bars below 18 because my eyes have adjusted to the white on the lower half of the image. Is this normal?
Does Gamma need to be set before setting the black and white points? I don’t perceive a big difference between 2.2 and BT.1886, the default for ISF Expert (Dark).
Finally, for the Advanced Sharpness pattern, the default H and V Sharpness is 10. I don’t notice changes until I move sharpness to 30, when some of the black lines get darker, and I can notice halo-ing at max sharpness. Should I leave these alone at 10? I think there may be some scaling artifacts from the 1920->3840 conversion that the player does.
