Here's a slightly updated pattern:

And here are examples of what it should look like:
  • 4:4:4 display - the "4:4:4" text is darker than the background, and "4:2:2" should barely be visible.
  • 4:2:2 display - the "4:2:2" text should be brighter than the background, and the "4:4:4" text should almost blend into the background. There should be a bright border around the edge of the image.
  • 4:2:0 display - none of the text is clearly visible (it may be faintly visible) and the center of the image should be dark, with a bright border around the edge of the screen.
Now it won't look that clean in reality, but should be enough to let you know what your display is doing.
EDIT: Photographs showing what 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 should look like:

I'm not sure why, but I don't seem to be getting as good results with the pattern now as I did originally. (the 4:4:4 text doesn't blend into the background as well as I'd like)

There's probably no need to use chroma scaling better than Bicubic 75 AR. (and the anti-ringing filter may even be unnecessary)
