HV20 preset for the A1

Has anyone created a preset to match the colors between the A1 and HV20? I don't understand some of the intricate preset options and think it would take me a long time to figure out unless I could get 2 HD monitors to work with and that is out of my budget now.

I use the HV20 set to cine mode and white balance set to cloudy.
On the A1 I use white balance set to sun with preset 6 from the A1 forum.

I don't have a lot of experience with this but on the occasion I had to match them both during a day shoot outdoors this seemed to work best for me and looked to be a close match on my HD LCD TV.

Your tests may be different but it somewhere to start.

I primarily just use my HV20 for a deck

good luck

There was a lengthy discussion of HV20 modes, with some reference to A1 modes. See post 45 in this thread, for instance:
