Hi,


I am new to this but by reading this forum and searching the web I kind of have an idea of how to calibrate my display.

Most of the display let you have different settings per source, this is nice but what if you use a A/V receiver ?


The display only has one source, the receiver, and it is the receiver that has multiple sources.


How could I calibrate sources differently with this setup ?


Thanks for your insights.



P.S.

The hardware in question is:

Onkyo TX-NR709 / Samsung 46D6100

Most projectors have multiple (some only two) user settings that you can save.

The days of needing different calibrations for different sources are (mostly) over. Modern digital video sources don't have the range of variation that used to exist with analog video. It has been a long time since I ran into, say, a Blu-ray player and cable/satellite box that needed separate (different) calibrations. You only need to insure that each source has the right settings and is not altering the video being sent out. Games are not "calibrated" unless they are THX certified (in which case they will match Blu-ray) as there's no color standard for the gaming industry. So using the HDTV standard is the only real alternative because you don't know if the next game is going to be accurate (THX) or some random "standard" used by the game company.


If you are still running an old VCR and laserdisc player... all bets are off. But you'd have to put known-accurate analog video into the VCR (say from a video signal generator with analog video output capability) and own a laserdisc with accurate test patterns.


And in your case, the AVR would have to have separate grayscale calibration controls for each input. I've never seen that from an AVR, however (at least not so far). Otherwise, there's no way to do separate calibrations for separate source components with everything connected as you have them connected now.
