TV colour balance
Most DVD's and Blu-rays look really good after spending some extra time fiddling with the settings using DVE HD Basics. I have noticed that reds flare a bit such as Superman’s red cape.
I have a few questions:
Black does not appear absolute, is this just something with LCD TV's due to using a back light?
Adjusting colours with Colour and Tint controls with a blue,red, green filter, I can get blue to look very accurate, green good but reds just don’t match up. Is this a limitation of the screen? A bias toward red? I have Emailed Samsung to ask them this specific question but any suggestions would be welcome.
Would it be worth trying to compensate with settings in the Blu-ray player?
I have colour space set to Wide instead of Auto as this seems to help with a more accurate green when setting colours. Could this introduce other issues?
I have also bumped gamma up to +2. Is this a good idea? I've read in a few places that LCD TV's need to be set at about +2.2.
As I'm not going to spend any money on a professional calibration or equipment should I just accept that it will not be perfect and enjoy what I have?
