Default What settings to begin calibration?

Is it important with what settings we begin calibration? (Color space, gamma, color managment, etc)?
Thank you!

For HD sources, set Colorspace=2. Of course, I would set Color Temp=6 so you can use the RGB Highs/Lows.

Here is the recommended workflow for the 8G's (little different than the 9G but similar):

Quote:
1. Set black level and then white level using brightness and contrast.
2. Set gamut (primary colors) using Color Management.
3. Set gamma, i.e. a flat gamma tracking using 9 point gamma adjustment.
4. Set grayscale using RGB Highs and Lows.
5. Check and Set secondary colors if necessary using Color Management.
6. Check gamut again, adjust if necessary.
7. Set color decoder using Color and Tint (NTSC).
8. Start from 3 again, when OK advance to 9.
9. Check everything from 1, if OK, calibration is done.
Here are some Threads for the 8G's:

You may also want to take a look at settings Posted by others to get an idea how the other P2 Controls are being configured:

So, for SD DVDs I should set color space to 1? And gamma? Or is it not important?

For SD, many use Colorspace 1 (a few even use it on HD sources)... When starting out, I would leave the Gamma Controls at their defaults. Once you get more experience calibrating your Display, you may want/need to start using those Controls as well.
