IMPORTANT: Your eyes are your most important tool when performing a calibration
First step of your calibration, if it’s not well configured (or of bad quality) the whole chain is compromised. Use good signal cables, especially HDMI as some cheap versions cannot handle bandwidth or HDCP.
Follow configuration guides

Use calibration patterns like Spears & Munsil UHD HDR Benchmark Blu Ray
