This is the only way I've been able to increase the overall brightness of this TV similar to my Samsung plasma. Otherwise if color points are at 0, it is too dim for my eyes. Once you make the tweak, then you will need to calibrate tv from there again. Only downside, is that since you use the color points set to max, you cant use them then to adjust red/green/blue levels if doing ISF calibration.
After calibration I have High points set to 0, 10, 0 . So I kept this difference and increased to 40,50,40 which remains to my eye very similar colour balance but much brighter image, it is good for very very dark movies, most sources don`t need this
and also good for bright room viewing. Question to Dave
, by increasing High colour points to same difference between colour, increasing points to 40 - 50 -40 instead of 0- 10 - 0 is giving without additional readjusting by ISF calibration is giving my set more off the spec ? colours look brighter as image does too, but it is overally very similar colour balance to 0 - 10 - 0 ISF setting .
I am curios what is roughly expected estimated ftl if previous ftl has been 35,2 ftl what should be with this increase etc. ? I estimate close to 50 or much over 40 ftl.
Generally I prefer white balance ISF calibrated value which was set upped by my ISF calibrator, it is itself giving punch and clarity to picture, there is no bigger improvement like ISF calibration.
