      calibration is never worth it. All they do is adjust your colors. You can do that yourself if you look it up on the internet.

        You will have to calibrate for BOTH inputs. Or pay twice for 2 separate TVS.

            Answer

            I just ran into this same issue. I just had my Sony XBR850B calibrated, and there is no internal menus that a user cannot access. So in my honest opinion it was not worth the money. My personal settings were already close to being perfect to having optimal dynamic range. Yes, the TV can be calibrated but it's nothing that you cannot do on your own, with your own eyes....

            What is the difference between this and the $249.99 calibration?   (3 Answers)

            SKU: 3552345 is a TV Calibration for $249.99 and it has a bit more detail as to what the service provides. What is the difference between this $149.99 service and the $249.99 service?

              Answer

              The difference is whether you are adding the calibration to be done with a setup and mounting (add-on) or simply having geeksquad come out to the the calibration by itself ($249). The add on is when they are already scheduled to do some type of work with your tv.

                I believe the minimum is 100 hours. But I would use the television a little longer and then get it calibrated.

                Does this include calibrating new 4K HDR tvs to Rec 2100? Specifically LG OLED C7.   (2 Answers)

                  Answer

                  No they just did my LG OLED 3 weeks ago and they only calibrated the ISF Bright and ISF dark only, they did not Calibrate the HDR, HGL HDR or Dolby Vision. Wait till it goes on sale sometime at 50% less than the $249 price than it is worth it. However, just know they do not calibrate for HDR, HGL HDR or Dolby Vision.

                Is the Calibration Service I purchased, truly "good for life"?   (3 Answers)

                I plan on moving within the next year and want to ensure my new 4K purchase can indeed be calibrated now (after 100-15 hours of use of course) and again once I move and the TV is in a new environment.

                  Answer

                  Yes and no. Take a picture of the picture/calibration setting before you move just in case somehow the settings has been reset. If you are planning to keep your tv for a long time, then get your tv calibrated every 5-7 years. Every tv/display losses brightness after a while.

                    Answer

                    A calibration is useful for providing a factory standard image, including adjusting sharpness, tint, contrast, and overall color to match the Industry standard for Theater. Yes, it should help unless the TV has another issue.

                      About 100-150 hours of use before hand is optimal
