    Hi

    This week I got a Z4, initially just for my xbox360 as it was cheaper than a tv. However, after watching some of the HD trailers I down loaded I thought I would have a go with my DVD player.

    The best resolution I am able to put in the Z4 is 570p, as my scaler outputs through 5 bnc's. Saying this I was very impressed with the picture and in many ways think it is better than my main projector at 720p.

    However, I just cant get the calibration quite right, I tried Rone's suggestions but this results in a slightly dim image, although the skin tones are very good.

    Is this because Rone is using HDMI, and im using the component input from my DVD player (Denon 2900)?

    Does anyone have any tips on calibration or know of any guides.

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. I have stuck with rOne's settings and used DVE for brightness and contrast which seems to have done the trick.
