I am struggling a bit with the HDR calibration on my LG C9. Bought Calman Home to use with my i1 Display Pro. I am completely new to TV calibration and have just been following the video guide closely, with few changes based on this thread (setting Low Light Handling for the i1).
The HDR result looks off. In a weird way that makes me wonder if something else than the calibration is the issue. I was hoping someone might have an idea based on these pictures.
Picture 1: A picture from Calman during calibration. One weird thing I have noticed is, at the top under LG 2019 OLED it says Cinema, even though I selected HDR Game at the screen where you reset DDC. It never changes the profile shown at the top. Does that matter? It is certainly changing the HDR Game profile during the calibration, as is also evident from the other pictures.
Also, there are a few black spots on the image, outside the white center, which aren't there in the video guide (edit: nvm, theose are in the video too).
Picture 2-3. From an LG test video stored on the TV. The liquid in the bottle is quite red in the uncalibrated Cinema profile (and was mostly the same in the uncalibrated Game profile before). But in the calibrated Game profile, it turns orange. Now, I obviously dont know which color that liquid is supposed to be, but I am assuming it is red.

Picture 4-5. Test image from some HDR youtube video, www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEtUF7RT3pw
Here the uncalibrated Cinema profile has, washed out colors, relatively to the calibrated profile does not. In a way it gives the opposite impression to the previous pictures. But the big difference seems weird. They clearly can't both be correct.
I also tried the test patterns in Calman. They show the same difference.
P.S. Just to be clear, the pictures here are of course not 100% color accurate to what I see on the TV - they are bad phone pictures after all - but the difference between the pictures are fairly accurate.
