please advise, general question - where to start with calibration?
We just received our LG 77" C8 and are thrilled with it. For a long time, while researching TVs, I've been seeing videos, talk and forum activity about calibration and it's something I'd like to do. But man, there is a plethora of information out there and I am still confused as to where to start. Having just gotten a good deal on this C8, I am having a hard time justifying spending half what we paid for the TV for calibration software and equipment. Is that what it's going to take, a couple of grand to get into calibration?
I'm all for spending money if it's necessary, but I'm also interested in the most economical option for getting into calibration at home as long as it's not cutting serious corners and is going to make a descent improvement over factory settings. I think that is a reasonable ask.
Sorry to ask such a broad question, I just need a little guidance as to where to start or what the minimum required software/hardware is going to be to be able to make a good calibration, and hopefully enjoy the process too.
