Hi D-train,
I find it suprising that pj settings are perfect?audio settings did they need adjustment?
All systems need calibration ,this disc is a start,no matter system cost.ISF calibration is next step and is worthwhile investment few hundred $
Every system I have listen to have NOT been calibrated correctly so this disc is a start,regards victor.
MY SYSTEM.

As far as colour, contrast, brightness and sharpness went I didnt have to change anything :o I even went a few setting either side and back again to make sure.

As far as the audio goes I use the MCACC on the pio amp to calibrate so only used the disc for video.

Thanks DT for the PM about this.

Could I perhaps suggest people PM the next on the list when they are finished with the disc?
- I for one dont check every thread religiously and an guilty of discussing something in a thread then forgetting which thread it was :-)

I was hoping someone would have shot me a PM about selling my place on the list :sigh: oh well :-) good job theres plenty more irons in the fire! LOL

Anyway glad to see its moving along again!

Cheers,
Bitey

Hi All,

Just letting you know that I still have the DVE Blu Ray disc.

I have had a few eye operations recently and have not had time to use it.

Sorry for the delay,
Struggo

I would be interested but suspect it might not be of much value to me. My Pana pz850 doesn't give much option for making adjustments & I'm not game enough to go into the service menu. Doesn't seem to be feasable to get a pro calibration here either as I'm not on the mainland. Fortunately the display as it stands looks pretty good to me.

I know. But surely considering the $1000's (or $10,000's) people spend on home theaters, $15-20 is a minimal outlay. And setups change which, presumably, would require recalibration? Seems a long time to wait to save a few bucks. Bit funny in my opinion. Took my name off after a couple of months. Each to their own i guess :D

I gave up looking for this and found AVSHD709

Downloaded the AVCHD (.exe) version which is a self extracting file. The file extracts to a 4.4 GB iso file. Created the disk using the their recomended ImgBurn software and now I have a very usefull calibration disk. Even though the disk is in DVD format, the data is for Blu-Ray (as I understand it).

Not as good or comprehensive as DVE HD Basics but very good for a free product. Has seperate sections for "CalMAN", "ChromaPure" or "ColorHCFR". Also has a short tutorial "HDTV Calibration" and a section for calibrating without the use of a sensor "Basic Settings".

I hope this post is not against the forum rules.

The Disney one has better test patterns IMHO - even if you know what you are doing, it;s a hell of a lot easier to navigate around and find what you want. DVE is pretty old now I guess.
