    I recently bought a KDS-50A2000.  I figured it would be smart to get it calibrated well for the room it is in, and did some digging around here.  It seems the Avia Guide and DVE are the two most popular calibration dvds out there. 
    My question is this: are there hd versions of these guides that will help get things set up well for 1080p, or will the current versions suffice?  When I went to the store this morning I saw the DVE in PAL format, and one copy of the Avia dvd.  Should I buy one of these, or should I dig further for something geared toward 1080p?

    I think DVE is available on VHS-D, but that is the only HD calibration patterns available right now. With HD-DVD and BluRay finally out, I'm pretty certain you'll be seeing HD versions soon.

    Sony KDL-46EX700, Onkyo TX-NR609, Sony BDP-S370, WDTV Live Streaming, Motorola DCT-6412, RCA RCRP05B.
