    Has anyone tried using the AVIA Home Theater Set-up & Calibration Disc?
    I’m interested in buying the dvd to use to set my system up but at £39.95, I would like other people’s views on it.

    I´ve got the AVIA disc and its well worth the money. A test disc is the only way you can properly set up your system (as it brings the dvd player into the loop). AVIA is easy to use BUT it only calibrates your TV for NTSC not PAL, fine if you´re using R1 discs(R2 discs dont look bad either though).

    There are lots of audio tests for channel levels, sub level,speaker phase tests (watch this as if you´re not in the right spot, the phase sounds reversed when it isnt!!).

    All in all, well worth it.

    Video Essentials is the other disc worth buying if you dont want AVIA, available from www.ezydvd.com.au

    cheers

    I got the Platinum DVD from ezydvd last week. Costs £25+ on play. I got it for £11.77 from Ezydvd. Took 6 days to deliver. Two disc set, loads of setup stuff. DTS 96/24 sound tracks. Lets you set up DTS, DD, Prologic. Also does video setup as well.

    And includes loads of sound and video sequences to prove to your mates you are a geek. Worked for me anyway:rolleyes:

    I have this dvd and I'd say buy the AVIA disk. The tests on the Platinum aren't extensive as the AVIA (I kick myself for wasting my money and not buying the avia first).

    I haven't got the AVIA yet because I am trying to find out if there will be a new version of the disk coming out soon. Does anyone know?

    Use: www.dvdpricesearch.com to find the cheapest AVIA, if memory serves me well, the cheapest is Digitaleyes.com, but check anyway.

    I hope I've helped you,

    marc.
