According to the AVS 709 Manual
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8968806/Patterns-Manual.pdf
Page 3 top right screen shot of pattern, description is "Black Clipping" But is used like a pluge as it is for setting brightness. Unlike the standard Pluge I have seen on other disk, this pattern will display bars from 0-25 which will flash for easy viewing.
When using it for sharpness, you have already set brightness so there is nothing visible below video black. When you turn up sharpness you will see thin white lines around the where the bars from 0-25, but it is very obvious in the 0-16 area where there should be nothing but blackness. This is assuming the set you are looking at reacts like the ones we have talked about. Hope that makes it clearer.

Sorry to resurrect this old post, but all that is needed is "a bunch of black lines on a medium grey background" shouldn't we be able to just download a jpeg of said lines and view it off of USB or whatever to do this calibration?

EDIT: Tried it, for whatever reason, I can't adjust focus when viewing JPEGs...

Emovita UMC-200, Citation 5.1 (2x400wpc for M3SIs), Adcom 7500 (5x150wpc for center and surrounds), Mirage M3SI mains, MCSI center, 4 x Athena .5 surround, 2 x Velodyne ULD 15 Subs, 70" Vizio LCD "E700i-B3"

putting sharpness to 0 is insane. why artificially dull your image? would you set color, brightness or contrast to 0?

i see so called reviewers at major websites putting sharpness to 0. they have no idea how to set properly the tv's they review

There have been a few displays over the years that have a "softening" feature but for most displays the correct setting is 0.

Once upon a time a manufacturer added a Sharpening Control which did nothing to improve the picture but did a little to help their financial bottom line via this new marketing gimmick. The next year, all TVs had a Sharpening Control. The end.
