To set the "white point BLOCK" and color space click on the "Infinity button" and while it is running toggle through all the color temp settings that the TV has

SONY PVMX550 and the LG OLED55C7P doesn't seem to have this either

We don't change the color temp doesn't work. Color Science is already set.

But on other TV's
Change the color temperature to warm 2 on the TV
Click on the "Infinity" button and warm 2 then warm 1, neutral, cool and found out warm 2 is best because the dot was closest to the white point

Click on Read Series "Goal Posts"

Shows you where the chromacity diagram or CIE Chart 

Shows what the TV is displaying in reference to the white boxes.

White Boxes = Optimum Color or Legal Range 

If the points of color are outside the boxes the colors need to be adjusted.

Notice here the dot is way out of the Green White box so the goal is to get

the dot in the white box to set the Green Correctly

Turn off all Auto Features
No automatic adjustments should be on

Click on Next once all the settings on the TV are off

Adjust Luminance

Click on Read Continuous lower left corner

and adjust the Backlight setting

adjust the Backlight setting - Sony TriMaster doesn't have this

The max reading is 24.4
For our Sony TV not the Trinitron

Make sure the White Line is Close to the Yellow  Line - less expensive TV's you will see fall off in the Low areas

?????Not sure what we did here notes from other session back in 2017 here

We went to lower the Gamma to make it work better
Turned on Advanced Contrast Enhancer and LED Dynamic Control
Look at the Moving Stripe pattern you want to see the display look darker.
This turns on Local Area Dimming

?????Not sure what we did here notes from other session back in 2017 here

We ended up turning on Local Area Dimming by turning on
LED Dynamic Control
Optimizes contrast by adjusting brightness in individual sections of the screen
Gamma also was changed to -2 this is a repeat of Gamma on step 2 but this is a 10 point control instead of a 2point control.
