    Hi,
    I know the basics of calibrating using Avia, DVE or the THX test patterns from various DVDs, however correct me if I'm wrong but don't these only calibrate your DVD player.

    How would I calibrate Sky TV when it shows no test patterns?

    Any help would be most welcome!

    Paulh.

    P.s I own a Toshiba 46inch

    do you have sky HD? IF so you can record a test pattern, other wise you can hook your DVD player up to the normal sky input which will help EG RGB scart

    Go to a music channel with black letterbox bars. Look at the black bars and adjust the brightness till you see noise in the black bars. Then back it down until the noise disappears and there is no ixel activity in the black area. Make sure it's a modern video that is on when you do this and not some washed out old 80's thing. Note: On some DLPs you will not be able to eliminate the noise in the black bars in which case adjust until it is no longer changing intenstiy of noise.

    For contrast you need to find some content with brightest white detail in it. You want to adjust the contrast so you can see as much detail as you can.

    Hope that's a little use
