HCFR automatic pattern generator
I have been trying to calibrate myself my tvs a few a times now. I just realized that i have been doing it wrong because of settings on my computer.
The first time i tried to calibrate using mp4 patterns but my LG tvs have 20 point greyscales and took forever. So I started to use the automatic pattern generator of HCFR. When I finished the real person movies colors seemed odd. The cheeks of most persons on the movies seemed like glowing too much.
Then i realized about full and limited RGB and that was messing my brightness and contrast initial settings and everything was off.
I think that I have fixed it, but not quite sure. This is my last setup:
Laptop with Intel graphics card. I have turned on YCbcr mode on the tv which is connected through HDMI (so the ouput goes on limited). I am using MP4 AVS709's patterns for brightness and contrast with MPC-HC player (i changed the ouput to 16-235). My LG tv is set with black levels to Low.
This should be the correct setup for the calibration right?
The other question i have is that my TV has a Y output of 0.204 at 0% white. Should i use a BT.1886 or power law?
