Besides dedicated calibration discs, do any actual movies come with the blue tint THX glasses for doing calibration?


I vaguely remember a DVD that came with them, so I was thinking maybe some blu-rays do as well?

None that I've seen, same for DVDs. Even if they did I wouldn't "trust" them. Look in the sticky thread at top for the Spears and Munsil disc. They talk about how hard it was to get correct color plastic filters.

That's discouraging



Guess I'm off to buy a calibration blu-ray.

The thread title reminds me of a conversation I just had with a totally tech-newbie friend of mine. He has an old CRT TV hooked up with a VHS player. I brought up Blu-Ray and he said: "Yeah, I've heard of Blu-Ray movies. So...what's Blu-Ray movies like? Does it make everything look kinda blue or something?"


True story.

I believe you. Sounds like something that would happen in Canada.

You can buy a pair for $1.99 at the THX store:

Thanks, I may do that for a backup pair.

My TV has "blu only" picture control mode, removing the red and blue components from the video signal.


Even so, do I need blue filter glasses to help properly calibrate my HDTV?

Nope. Just use the blue mode.

The blue-only mode, if it functions properly, is preferred to filters anyway. Usually in my experience the blue-only mode does function properly.

But still has nothing to do with calibration.

I don't understand it.


In blue only mode subpixels having blue light phosphors active, red and green subpixels dead.


Wearing a blue filter glasses blue part of the spectrum visible, other part invisible.


They are one and the same thing, isn't they?


Now then, for what purpuses serves the blue only mode?
