Yes, it would be better to leave 11-pt (as well as 2-pt, meaning RGB Offset and Gain) at default values until you purchase or rent a meter.Hi everyone, new to the forums - thanks for the ton of information here, and especially for the links to the calibration settings.
I just picked up a P60 (open box - perfect condition) from Best Buy yesterday and a Vizio 2.1 soundbar (nib) for $1000 total after some negotiating with the GM and love it! After reading through the forums, am I correct that I can use other users calibration settings but should leave the 11pt white adjustment default because it's too device specific? Also, would I be safe at trying some of the posted P70 calibrations? Thanks much.
First try Basic and Advanced settings (from either P60 or P70 - they are both based on Sharp panels) and then try CMS settings (again, for either P60 or P70) which should all transfer relatively well.
Getting a disk like DVE or AVSHD709 (free here on the Forum) will allow you to calibrate basic settings including Sharpness using your eyes but then the next step if you want to spend $100-200 for a basic meter would be to dial in white balance and greyscale/11-pt using freeware like HCFR and free patterns like AVSHD709 or GCD...
P.S. Great find on the P60
