thanks in advance,
does it make alot of diff seting
up the sanyo plv 30 with this disc
just ordered mine from the states $60 including shipping for comparison.
The only issue with AVIA is that it will help you get the best from NTSC DVD's but it won't help get the best picture from PAL DVDs and TV as the black levels are different.
Does anyone know if Video Essentials is in PAL as well as NTSC.
I've ordered AVIA and Video Essentials from Amazon.com. I am awaiting their delivery any day.
Video Essentials: $42.49
The Avia Guide to Home Theater $39.99
I bought my copy of AVIA through Amazon as well.
The video calibration takes a long time. Make sure your wife of kids are out for a couple hours while you figure out the disk and do the calibrations.
Your wife will make fun of you for looking through the colour filters(bits of coloured plastic) and your kids will take them and you wont be able to get your colours set correctly!
Not such a big deal. The black level set-up is a function of the player not the disc. RGB Component and PAL all set-up for 0IRE. NTSC sets up for 7.5IRE. I just avoid using NTSC. If I need to view in composite PAL60 is just fine in fact its got a tad larger chromaticiy footprint. ( I can actually force my player to set-up for either 0IRE or 7.5 IRE with any signal type)
Black level isn't a problem. Prefer VE myself though because of the Snell and Wilcox pattern (allows contrast adjustment more accurately than the needle pulse)
I got mine from movietyme a while back, just checked and it's still £27.99 delivered. Pretty fast too.
Don't know if it's available in any shops but I'm pretty sure any of the sponsors of the HCC site (those banner adds on most pages) should be able to get you one.
Yes, using the test patterns available on this disc will allow you to get a better picture from your PLV30.
