    I am just getting my plasma (Hitachi 7200) and realise before it lands through the door that the factory presets are not good to put it mildly. Although there are sevral tips on what settings to use I would prefer to have some sort of reference disc to set the TV up correctly. I note that the Avia Home Theatre Set Up disc is on the market - however I am lead to believe that this only calibrates NTSC. I do have NTSC material and a multi region DVD - however PAL just that bit better (more lines it has to be) so would want to be able to set my system up to a PAL default.
    Does anyone know of anything on the market which can do the job?
    A bonus would be to set up my soundfield as well even though I am happy with it a bit of tweaking wouldn't hurt :smashin:

    Cheers
    Dave

    Thanks Dave. :)

    I hope you have better luck than me navigating DVE though! There's a basic calibration 'how to' at the top of the digital projectors forum if you need any help with it.

    Gary.
