    Monitor Calibration - Old TV Test Cards ?


    Hi there
    With 24 hr TV broadcasting these days you don't get to see the old Test Cards any more -- these were excellent - especially things like the BBC which had also on the darkest Black and the Whitest white rectangles a little spot ("Blacker than Black / Whiter than White") so you could calibrate the screen accurately.

    Any live transmissions of these anywhere available a satelite channel perhaps -- it's no point downloading images as these will already have had other adjustments in them already.

    Youngsters will probably never have seen a testcard so here's an image of what I mean. Terrible quality of image though. Useless for calibration.

  2. Calibrating my monitor


    I used the built-in display calibration program in Windows 10.
    This article explains the process: https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/c...tor-windows-10
    First, I set the brightness and contrast on my monitor with it's built-in adjustments so that it looked fairly good to my eyes. Then, I opened Nvidia control panel beside the window for for the calibration program and fine-tuned each setting in Nvidia control panel until the test images looked like the Windows calibrator said they should look in the instructions before each step.

    Calibrating my monitor


    I cant use windows own calibration tool because it resets everytime i play a game. I was pretty satisfied with the calibration that i did with windows though.

    @Cliff S thanks, will try it out.

    Calibrating monitor


    I did the steps in the tutorial, but it didnt make any difference. Im using the default settings on my monitor, which is 70 contrast and 100 brightness. I cant really seem to get a good result using nvidias control panel. My monitor is too bright or too dark, and sometimes painful for my eyes.
