Also weird that your colorimeter says you have too low a color temp at the top end while mine had said too high there! Either our sets are at extremes of tolerances or one of our calibration devices might be off or something. Or maybe these new ones are THAT much different from teh old ones (not that they looked too bad, since most photos actually looked reasonably the same as with my calibrations, not that those were perfect). Or maybe that PS3 puts out quite a different signal than my nvidia card
. You never know with consoles (or with nvidia
i'll post my current ones when I get back again. Curious to see what your colorimeter and test disc would say about mine
If you are struggling for more blue on your set maybe try a normal instead of warm starting point
or try renaming port as PC (in this case, it seems hard to get enough red, at least to me and green seems awfukly powerful).
I noticed the new series due out appears to have a much better color control set. They got rid of that dumb My Colors things and have a CMS instead to adjust the 3 primaries and 3 secodaries
Also weird that the one primary that was off according to UltAV is green and that's the one that someone said cant be adjusted on the set at all
I didn't realize my statements sounded like complaining. I am merely pointing out that the Y values (luminance/brightness) of blue and green are low in comparison to red when red, as TomHuffman recommends doing, is used to adjust Color. Color adjustment is a color brightness control for all colors. You COULD use the Color control to set any color's Y to spec, but if you used blue, then red would be off and so would green. I think the reasons TomHuffman recommends starting with red is that it's Y value is in between green and blue, and blue errors are not as problematic to the eye as is red and green. I actually tested using blue and the results were not good.
Post your settings and I'll test them, but I have heard that PC settings and BR settings are very different. I am not really familiar with PC settings, colorspaces, or for that matter even what test patterns to use in calibration of a PC source. Heck, I only know a little bit about BR!
Like I said, I only know a little, but I think using normal or cool shifts relative saturation of colors, not luminance. If this is wrong, I hope somebody corrects me. And yes, between cool, normal, warm1&2, and the WHITE setting in My Color Control a lot of adjustments can be made to overcome saturation issus, I think.
The problem with green is that this is a hue issue. To my knowledge none of the colors' hue can be adjusted. Green just happens to be the most "off".
If the new Sammys have a full featured CMS it will mean that luminance, saturation, and hue can be adjusted for all primary and secondary colors. Apparently VERY few TVs have a full CMS.
Tomorrow a Sammy tech is going to enable the color sliders in My Color Control, and at least then I can adjust the luminance of pink(!), green, blue, and (?)white. Then I can stop complaining about it
