    Hi Joe!
    Great stuff.
    Please note that for the "most accurate" image, start in THX Mode and then just tweek the gray scale in the service mode (for THX Certified Video Calibrators only).
    this will produce a gamma around 2.2 which would be very close to 2.35 when measured in the THX Test Labs.

    My results would be more accurate in THX? Hmm...I'll have to give it a shot.
