RE: thx calibation disc

If you want to do it better than the THX setup with a few more options you can download the FREE AVCHD 709 disc which should play in most Blu-ray players & includes video introduction on basic TV calibration. Found here clicky you have to download the AVCHD.EXE file & write it to a normal DVD there are instructions on the website.

What are you calibrating? It may be worth getting in a professional calibrator.

RE: thx calibation disc

I have a calibration blu-ray disk,which is ok for getting the right contrast/brightness settings,however i'm about to get an oppo105( more detailed settings)so will be getting fully calibrated by a THX registered guy in the coming months,imo the £225 is worth it becouse the settings are as near referance as your av stuff will allow (colours etc)...its a one of payment.:)
