Calibrate a sat/ DVB-T/ receiver with pvr function?

Is it possible to calibrate a sat/ DVB-T/ receiver that has also pvr function? (VANTAGE HD 8000TS Twin PVR
If I put calibration patterns in a usb flash will the receivers also be calibrated, or just the pvr?
Thank you

I would just use a reliable source like a blu-ray player since it will be displaying full 1080p when the patterns are on the screen. Then apply the calibrated settings to other inputs and it should look fine.

Source specific adjustments can be problematic simply because of source differences. ZKACAL is sort of correct in that once you adjust your panel using a disk via a blu-ray player (with all video enhancements off on the blu-ray player and the tv) you should be fine. You want to adjust or calibrate your panel, not the source. Even on a properly calibrated panel some sources (cable, sat, movies, etc) may not look correct given the programming.

Thank you for replies. I have already calibrated with blu-ray/dvd and already have applied this calibration to the receiver input. But many tv channels look awful and though I should calibrate for this source too. I thought that the calibration is for the combination tv-input device and not only for the tv.

Pros use pattern generators so they don't have to deal with any sort of external processing and it reduces calibration time as well. Some blu-rays are more accurate than others.

I have patterns, programs (ColorHCFR, Calman) and sensor (x-rite i1 pro). With these I have calibrated my DVD and blu-ray player. I will run these patterns from a usb disk in the receiver to see if the calibration I did for blu-ray/dvd gives the same results for the receiver media player.
