Unfortunately, I've become totally addicted to 21 Point grayscale from my Lumagen VQ for HDMI 4.
Due to the settings in the Lumagen being setup for HDMI 4, I can't use it as a source to calibrate HDMI 1. OK for 2 Point and CMS.
HDMI 1 is for my 4K Blu-ray player where only HDR settings need be calibrated since it only plays 4K UHD BDs. (Normal BDs look OK to me.)
As other Members have mentioned, my old settings seem to be working OK for them. Being a PQ freak, my set gets re-calibrated every other week, and yes, the values do change. Week to week, probably a change of dE 1.0 or less. When it annoys me, it gets re-calibrated!
Supposedly, the average person can't see any difference below a dE of 3. Myself, a big dif from my original dE 0f 0.3 to 0.2, and times 0.1. Hence, keeping my set up to snuff all the time.
My wife on the other hand, if it has color and makes noise, it's fine, leave it alone Had to reset her living room TV due to hub issues, and there went the previous calibration. Due to her now having to work from home, no chance to re-calibrate. Do I see a difference - yes. Her - No.
NOTE: DO NOT use my USB/APPs settings for HDMI - totally different !
