    Using Avia's color decoder check, I am a about +10. This keeps my blue around -15 to -20. ( I lost my green slip.)

    It seems more than a +10 red makes faces too red.

    I was just curious what most people here keep theirs at when they have red push on their display.

    P.S. Why does Avia recommend NOT going back to the hue now that I have further tweaked my colors? It would seem to me that I should go back and make sure the two center bars on the hue check remain not blinking at all.

    They recommend that you not alter tint after calibration because it is still giving you accurate tint if you have to tweak the saturation, changing the tint as well will throw the calibration off even further.

    I find that I can't tolerate anything above the +10% range either. I would like to get it to read at 0% but it robs my picture of green and blue when I do that. I would like to try that trick with an attentuator but my saturation isn't so severe as to warrant that.
