Re: Calibration Nightmare
If he didn't leave you a report...you should go back and ask for it. It's a before and after report showing how well your TV fell within specs before he touched it....then the after report (obviously) shows how effective his work was (ie: was your money well spent). Depending on the condition of the TV, manufacturer, etc.....some units are not calibrateable, while others are alsmot finely tuned and within specs right out of the box (if the correct picture mode setting is selected.
For instance...pic modes like "Vivid", "Dynamic", etc. (what we ISF'ers call Torch Mode) are typically far out of spec...while some vendors have their "Cinema" or "Movie" picture mode not too far out of whack.
