Color calibration?

What color scheme in most important... Blue, red, green?

I'm calibrating my Mitbutishi CRT RPTV with "perfect color" and DVE although I cant get all them to be perfect, I can get two schemes very close with the third off a tad.

Any help would be great...

Bri,
Before doing any video calibrations, DVE states that all "auto" color, brightness, and contrast type controls should be turned off. Having any of those on makes adjusting more difficult or impossible.

Second, in order to get the right look through the three filters on the color bar screen (see below) you may need to go into any "color management" or "color decoding" menus (other than the normal color and tint controls) you may have on your set to get it right.

Third, I wouldn't worry too much if you can't get all three perfect. Personally, I had some trouble with the green filter--and while it's close, it's not perfect. Nevertheless, the picture is still very impressive.

Fourth, try not to turn any "auto" controls back on, as they will screw up all the work you've done. Good luck.
