    I have a Sony CRT KP-57WS520. When using Avia to calibrate, is it ok to go back and forth between hue and color to get the best calibration? I've heard once you set hue, then go to color, that you should not go back to hue. Does it matter?

    You always have to go back and forth.

    So, like everything else, there is a compromise or best "middleground" between the two.

    That's the way I look at it. Once I get it calibrated using a a disc, I always have to make a couple 'real world' minor adjustments to fit how I like the pic to look. Usually they are very minor, but I think tweaking is just part of the game.

    not so much a compromise, as that they affect each other.

    color balance
    color saturation

    It seems as if I optimize color saturation, color balance is then off slightly....and vice versa.

    However, it's very slight.

    That is not unusual. If it is more severe, it may be due to redpush, ie. nonstandard color decoding.
