After reading the LG autocal release notes that Tedd posted the other day, I was thinking "again", now that a lot of the CM autocal dust has settled, given that we know there are panel to panel variations, if you calibrate your LG manually, you are making adjustments based on the factory LUTs which may not be optimal for your specific panel vs making 1D and 3D or matrix LUTs from "scratch" for your specific panel. One would believe, assuming CM creates the LUTs properly, ( we know the 1D and the Matrix work fine right now ), and you use Autocal correctly, and you have "sufficient" equipment, that you would always get a better result with autocal for sets that may be out of spec from the factory or have more panel variation.
Case in point, although the new Sony's have CMS controls, I still see some colors with more than minimal luminance errors no matter what I do to try and correct it. I've spoken to DeWayne about this a while back and "basically" there is no way to correct some of these CMS issues with the user controls. I sometimes see the same when manually calibrating a LG BUT on my own sets, re-creating the LUT using Autocal fixes most of the problems. That said, I'm starting to re-think using CM Autocal with the manual tweak, for customers even though there is no and may never be a backup process since on some sets, you can get a better result depending on your panel.
The sets i'm referring to are not defective, just that some are better than other's and autocal can correct the less than optimal sets to be optimal in my opinion.
