For another $145, you could purchase Calman Home for LG, which would allow you to use their autocal feature- although I'm fuzzy on how much integration there is with the B-series for 2019. Perhaps someone else could chime in with more details.
Hi, the user can perform HDR10 or DV calibration using HDR10 or DV patterns as media files for example, using the Service Menu for 1/2-Point RGB balance first and then using the normal menu controls, it will work well.
CalMAN with AutoCAL is not supporting B9 currently, its was expecting to be supported in CalMAN 2019 R2, but it was not added.
Even if it will supported, currently if you perform AutoCAL with CalMAN, it will raise the black level of the display, this is a problem for at least 8 months, LG is working for a fix.
This problem affecting only AutoCAL using CalMAN in HDR10/DV, it will not affect manual cal.
3D LUT volumetric calibration also using CalMAN produce artifacts also, expecting improvement in the future, I have reported this many times from 2018.
