    I have an old Video Calibration DVD that came with a blue tinted piece of plastic to assist with the color and hue calibration. unfortunately I lost the plastic. Any suggestions on how I can replace it or calibrate the color and hue without it? I beleive the test calls for u to adjust until the boxes shown initially disappear while looking through the plastic.

    Once you know what to look for, you don't really need them. Adjust colour first so it doesn't look unnaturally colourful or dull.
    Tint changes between red and green, so move the slider up and down when someone is on screen.

    Er I think he'd be better off with the blue filter rather than trusting his eyes. The idea is to adjust colour based on objective brightness appraisal of the blue primary. You cannot do this by eyeballing it.
