    Go to Amazon.com and get yourself a copy of the AVIA set-up DVD and a big jar of coffee and a day to play with your system.

    Your settings will be unique to your set-up so best to configure it with a set-up disc in your own DVD player.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Just borrowed one of those AVIA disks of a mate, many thanks.
    I knew the factory setting of contrast at 20 was a tad high!

    Tata ;)

    You'll have to search the US site to find it, they don't stock it in the UK.

    Yep.

    I got mine from Disc Emporium a few weeks ago.

    It costs about £38 and was delivered in a coupld of days from order.

    They are based in Knebworth if you want to phone tham and ask if they have it in stock to pick it up.

    Regards,

    Kirk

    Here you go, this is what I am using at the moment. I did'nt watch the 40 min presentation I just piled in with the test patterns as I wanted to see LOTR. :D

    Room conditions = No lights on
    Picture Mode = Cinema
    Contrast = 3
    Brightness = 5
    Colour= 1
    Tint = -1
    Sharpness = 0

    Advanced Settings - Factory Settings
    DVD Player Settings - Factory Settings
    When I get more time I'll go through it again.

    I've seen some posts with the Contrast in the minus figures. I tried that on the AVIA patterns but it seemed to low.

    All the best

    are they only for the component imput ?
    do you plug the dvd in to different imputs to calibrate that imput?
    how do you fancy renting your avia disk to me for a week? £5.00
    your settings of
    contrast
    brightness
