    Just wondering if there are separate calibration settings for each of the video inputs 1-7.
    I noticed that when I used Avia and got my settings the way I liked them on input 3, that input 6 or 7(the HD inputs) were totally different in terms of white level and black level. When you change the video settings from one input is that a global change? Thanks for any help guys!

    Unlike other manufactures, Sony does not provide the capability to allow you to individually adjust their inputs.

    However, for all inputs you have the capability to customize between four different modes (Vivid, Standard, Movie, Pro).

    Use Avia to calibrate between the four different modes.

    One of the ways to experience a change in black level is if you calibrated using Avia in progressive mode, then try to playback in interlace for inputs 5 and 6.

    In view of the above, there should be no wide shifts in black level, once properly calibrated unless something is wrong with your monitor.

    Thanks for the info. You told me exactly what I needed to know. I was thinking of buying a progressive DVD player to fix the problem. Right now I am using avia with a non-progressive player. But your trick might work. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
