I understand what you are talking about as I have experienced the same issue. Just curious before I go on ..What make and model and how old is your TV? Do you have HD programming?
I have a new Samsung 46 inch lcd. I calibrated my TV from settings I found on this site and with some of my own "tweeking" I have found a happy medium. My TV has HD programing via HDMI and what I have come to relize is that while some faces can indeed be "sunburned" other faces and skin tones are perfect.
So with that, I believe that HD brings out perhabs some of the wrong settings broadcasted by local and national TV stations, including too much & too dark of base makeup on the news anchors. This is ONLY a theory but given movies and other TV series etc are spot on, I have come to this conclusion. Not to mention older programing recorded in standard defintion can be un-watchable at times with the color being way off. I am also a photographer and skin tones and correct white balance, color saturation, brightness & contrast are essential. Hope this helps.
Sometimes the skin of people looks as though they are healing up from sunburn.
This is very apparent with peoples heads and faces.
There are two distinct skin tones or colours on the same image of someones face.
It isn't because of shadows, lighting or anything to do with people turing sideways.
Is this normal for digital tv.
It doesn't matter what settings I use to try and fix this, nothing works.
Have you got any thoughts about this skin problem.All the other colours are ok.
