    I own just two THX cert'd disks (so far) but they result in me making different picture settings.

    This surprised me as a newbie, but then I read a post stating that this is the case as THX certification is specific to each movie - OK fair enough if this is true.

    If so then what is the benefit in using something like eg. AVIA to set up a TV if each THX disk warrants its own setup?

    Surely THX is more stringent to standards than other movies, which makes me think the variations between non-THX cert'd DVDs would be so much greater and therefore invalidate any sort of set up disk to be used as a baseline.

    Or am I just rambling ...

    Once you've calibrated with Avia, you shouldn't need to change any settings regardless of movie or THX certification.

    I change my settings once every 6 months, and that's just when I recalibrate.

    Shouldn't that read "I change my settings once every 6 months, and that's just every time I change my kit...";) :D
