    I see it, thanks.

    So the only difference is the color and number of tuners.

    It would be interesting to know if both 222 and 222K had the same picture quality.

    I'm pretty satisfied with the 222K, as I don't own a 4K TV.

    What I do notice is a considerable difference between channels in PQ. [ HD to HD ]

    When Kendra was on ID channel I always used skin tone as my go to for adjustment.

    Worked out quite well.

    That isn't something that is going to change much from receiver to receiver.
    If you're adjusting your TV often, it is probably because women's makeup changes with weather and the seasons. Variations in sets and lighting don't change what is accurate representation across all channels.

    Unless your TV is deteriorating, it shouldn't need to be adjusted. There used to be test patterns on HDNet (a different channel from HDNet movies)but that channel isn't around anymore. There are DVD and Blu-ray disc-based solutions that offer simple and accurate calibration. Disney sells a calibration DVD that is easy to use and produces good results.
