I hate to bump an old thread, but I have a question regarding SpyderTV and this was the first thread to come up through my search. I did read a large part of the thread, but I will admit that I did not read all 931 posts.
I have the DVE DVD, which I used to adjust my rear projection CRT (Mitsu WS55315), but as I read this thread it was implied that the STV might not give a better result than the DVE DVD. It seems that the advantage of the STV is I would not have to navigate through the horrible DVE menu.
I have been reading on-line reviews of the STV, and they are mixed. A lot of people are complaining that the STV sensor is horribly calibrated from the factory and that the results may not be all that accurate and that I shouldn't waste my money.
So, I thought I would ask the forum what your experience with the STV has been?
While I'm on the subject of DVE, I was always curious about this...
The DVE DVD is (of course) being played through the BD player. The BD player is connected to my AVR via HDMI, and the AVR is connected to my display via HDMI. The same situation holds for all of my equipment (Digital STB, game consoles, etc). Since the display's input itself is adjusted, will the same adjustments work across all of the equipment inputs of the AVR, or do I need to move the BD player to each of the other inputs of the AVR as well? In other words, do I need to move the BD player to the CAB/SAT HDMI input of the AVR to adjust that path's parameters, etc?
For what it's worth, I will be adjusting a Mitsubishi 82738 Rear Projection DLP.
Thanks a lot!
