    From this evenings <a href="http://www.thedigitalbits.com/" target="_blank">The Digital Bits</a>

    "Also this morning, we've got word that DVD International's much-lauded and highly-useful Video Essentials DVD is soon to be no more. The disc, which is used to properly calibrate your home theater equipment to maximize your picture and sound quality, has been discontinued. But don't fret, because on November 14th, it's being replaced by Digital Video Essentials. The new disc will SRP for only $24.99 (the original Video Essentials carried a hefty $49.99 price tag). Created by Joe Kane Productions, the disc will be the first ever created using true "Progressive Mastering". It will reportedly contain far more information that the original Video Essentials, and will be easier to use. It will still feature all of the calibration patterns we've come to rely on here at the Bits, along with a wealth of new demonstration material and new programs on Dolby Digital and DTS sound. Both NTSC and PAL versions will be produced, and localized versions will be available in German, French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Japanese and Portuguese. Joe Kane is nothing if not a crusader for quality and a stickler for detail, so I fully expect this disc will live up to the hype."

    Richard A: Are you here? Have you seen any of this new V.E. disc? Should we be placing orders now? Was that a beta version I saw in your DVD pouch at the EVENT? We need your wisdom!

    what can you get out of a setup disc?

    is it for projectors, 7.1 and large rooms, or can the ordinary punter, namel y me, with a tv and 5.1 gain anything from it?

    £15 dont seem that much if there is benefit to be had.
