    Help,

    I've bought one of those DVD's with lots of test patterns on it that's supposed to help you setup your colours etc on yor TV.

    The question is there's no instructions ?, I have a bit of blue filter paper so I'm sure that's supposed to be of use.

    Has anyone used one of these before ?, I've got 'The Ultimate DVD- Platinum' and 'Video Essentials' (By the way both were ordered from http://www.ezydvd.com.au for roughly £20 for both and took 4 days delivery from Australia, not bad).

    Any help would be nice.

    Cheers,
    Rich.

    There's nothing with it that looks like instructions, I maybe need to take a more carefull listen to the DVD itself but when I browsed through it there wasn't any.

    How much was the AVIA one and where can I get one ?...

    Cheers,
    R.

    Each of the tests on the Ultimate DVD Platinum disc has a demo button which shows how the test should be used and has some yank talking over it describing what you do.

    I thought the same as you, before I connected my amp :blush:.
