Talk with Richard at Mastertech. If he is not skilled on the Elite I am sure he can recommend someone.

That is the way it should go. I am a strong believer in educating the client as part of the process. You should feel comfortable with everything that was done and at least have a general understanding of why, if you have the interest. Some clients do not, but those that do should get as much info as they can understand.

Hi All,

I saw one of you guys looking for a calibrator in the Brooklyn area for a Pioneer Pro-150HD, and someone else looking for a Sony SXRD in Norhern NJ. You might try looking at www.tweaktv.com They have some calibrators with serious credentials. Not sure if they have anyone in the New Yrok New Jersey area or not.

I've included your post in the owner's list of professional calibrations of flat panels that is linked at the bottom of my post.

I can't read all the threads where owner's may report on having their displays calibrated. If you know of any that include the calibrator's name that I've missed, please send me a link to it, and I'll see that it's included.

Thanks GaryZ.

LowDUB,

Here's some additional contacts that might be useful if Eliab's tour schedule doesn't get to you soon enough, or if you want to spread the candidate net wider.

http://www.isfforum.com/sobi2/ISF-Fo.../Maryland.html

Good luck with your search.

Is there anyone out there who calibrates Syntax Olevia HDTV's?

Mine is a cheap-o Olevia 232v that I only paid around $700 for about a year ago.

I love this TV and I think it has potential. Is it wasteful to get a $300 calibration on a $700 set?

I don't have all sorts of money like a lot of people so I can't go and just get a better TV.

I have used AVIA to calibrate so far and the difference is amazing, I just want that last 10% to make it perfom its best.

I live in northern PA in a town called Coudersport and I also understand my TV isn't a popular canidate for calibration. I do know how to get to the service menu for R,G,B cuts and gains.

I feel the only thing left for this TV is a proper grayscale calibration.

Sorry for the long write and thanks in advance
