Just curious. I have a DVE DVD but I can't seem to find it at the moment. I have almost 100hrs on my new projector and have used some of the settings that others have posted for my projector but I'm guessing that their screen or lighting conditions is different than mine as these calibrations just look all wrong on my setup. Is there a video file that I can download somewhere that I can then stream to my Xbox the way I would movie files for calibration? I know there's a website I can go to but I don't know that the IE browser on the box will allow me to do what it is that I need to do although I haven't yet tried it. I figured this was more the section for professional calibration type discussion and my buddy has a new calibrator but he lives out of state and I want to get a decent calibration on my PJ until he can come over and hit it with the real juice.

Any ideas for me? I did some searching and didn't come up with much so I'm guessing this isn't a popular way of going about things but I was just curious if this is something that can be done.

Thanks!

You can burn the AVS Forum calibration disc to a DVD. It has all the patterns you will need and it is a known disc as opposed to a website that you do not knot if the video levels are correct.

Yes. Yes I can. Where does one find this magical image file?

Perfect! Thanks! Looks like I can DL the mp4 version to my PC and then stream it to the Xbox w/o burning a disc like I was looking for. I'll try it out.
