I have the RS400, SR7010, Philips BDP7501. This UHD Player works fine, except it wouldn't display RM's HDR10 patterns when put on USB Stick, via DLNA, etc. So I've been waiting on the availability of the UHD-BD version, which is now about to be released.
As I contemplate ordering it, I wanted to clarify a couple of things:
1. My main original reason for getting it would be to use it on conjunction with Arve's Custom Gamma Curve Tool, to more precisely adjust Contrast when creating the curve using his 'automated' feature. But at the same time, I recall recommendations from some here who implied it would be better to use bright scenes from actual HDR movies, rather than formal patterns, in making this adjustment.
I never quite understood how/why that would be better than using the precisely defined patterns, but then there's a lot I don't understand!
So, is there a consensus here as to the preferred/better way to adjust contrast when using Arve's tool: actual bright movie scenes, vs HDR10 patterns?
2. I have successfully done JVC's Autocalibration, and used Arve's Custom Gamma tool (which may get tweaked, depending on the answer above), and am pretty happy with what I'm seeing. Is there anything else
I can use this disc for? I do not have a pro level light meter, formal calibration software, etc. - just the Spyder 5.
Basically, I'm just wondering if it's worth my getting RM's new HDR10 patterns, and exactly what use I could get from them?
