XH A1 preset on XL???

I begin shooting a documentary tomorrow. I own an A1 (which I will use as a second camera) and I have rented a XL H1 as the primary run and gun camera. I have been using Steven Dempsey's VIVIDRGB preset on the A1 and I love it. I tried setting the preset up in the XL to match it however I noticed the scales were different (like Golor Gain only goes to about 10 whereas the preset calls for a number between 25 and 40.)
Any one know how to get the two cameras in line with one another so they both are both generating the VIVIDRGB look?

Adjusted VIVIDRGB presets

Based on the info in this thread:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...t=xh+xl+preset

I switched to these presets (some were not changed because the scale difference does not exist between the two cameras.)

Gamma: Cine1
Color Matrix: Normal
Color Gain: 6 (thanks, Tom)
Color Phase: 0
Knee: Low
Black: Middle
Master Ped: -5
Setup Level: 0
HDF: High (This can be "mid" if sharpness is 0)
H/V Detail: 0
Sharpness: 3 (adjust to taste)
NR1: Off
NR2: Off
Coring: 0
Red Gain: -1
Green Gain: -1
Blue Gain: -1
RG Matrix: 0
RB Matrix: 0
GR Matrix: 0
GB Matrix: 3
BR Matrix: 0
BG Matrix: -4

The problem is, however, that this does not account for the inital difference in settings between the two cameras.

Any help would be much appreciated.
