    Yeah i just got it the other day. I guess it worked pretty well and have not tried doing the audio part yet. If you have an old TV it will help out a lot because I used it on Dad's old tv and looks lot better. The newer TV are pretty close to the right settings.

    I just got it yesterday. It does help you calibrate brightness, sharpness, color, and tint to reference standards. I find it a little difficult to use just because my eyes aren't that good - I may go back and try it again. It definitely helped improve the picture from my DVD source. I think it is a little harder to calibrate for cable signal since all the channels a different.

    It is most important to calibrate the tv is the same light commonly used to watch. In fact it would be best to calibrate one screen mode for 'regular' viewing, and another for 'daytime' viewing. S&V is made be the same people as Avia, it just doen't have as many options os tutorials, still a good disc though. I'm waiting for the new 'Digital' Video Essentials to come out.

    So are you guys happy with the results or should I get the Avia or wait for something else. I have a week old 40XBR800.

    Get the DVD and adjust your TV now, since it probably has the contrast set up to flame mode.

    It does get some getting used to the new settings though.
