You can probably consider any of the measurements based on a "C-3" panel and go from there. Again - remember there are many variables to consider - primary source material? - cable, satellite, gaming - some people prefer a totally dark room, while others may calibrate to accommodate different light conditions. Many reviews have suggested that the "Calibrated" and "Calibrated Dark" options are good starting points since they tended to measure fairly accurately out of the box. Don't despair - take your time and consider your options. Remember - you can load a number of different calibrations - and scroll between those to get an idea of how they look on your screen, in your room. Then based on your initial observations - select the setting(s) that look best and adjust to your satisfaction. Good luck!
Agree, there are a lot of variables. I guess that's what I was hoping this spreadsheet would help with.
It would be nice to have a few additional fields (at least a comment field), showing how they setup these preferences, what source they were using.
I would love to have like:
1. All Dark - Sports
2. Lights On - Sports
3. All Dark - Netflix, PC, Sat, Etc.
4. Lights On - Etc. You get the idea.
like BoostM3's settings are horrendous on DirecTV and Netflix (built into TV), but I have a feeling if I connect my PC to it, it may shine and look great.
I get it, just was hoping I could find a great setting for ALL dark, as I love watching everything with lights off when possible, as I am not that comfortable with the deeper settings like:
Hue 1 Saturation 1 Brightness 1 Offset 1 Gain
Red Green Blue Cyan Magenta Yellow Red Green Blue Cyan Magenta Yellow Red Green Blue Cyan Magenta Yellow Red Green Blue Red Green Blue
