I have a new Mitsubishi 57732 that I'd like to have calibrated. I live right on the IA/MO state line on I-35. My zip code is 50140 if that helps. I may have another person or two in my town that would like to have a calibration as well.

Contact me. We will need to get service literature - I have never done a Westinghouse before, doubt if many calibrators have - but any set can be properly calibrated given the proper information.

Yours will be no exception.

Mr Bob

You would think that living in the New York City (Queens,Brooklyn, Manhattan & Long Island) area, you would be tripping over credentialed qualified calibrators of the ISF caliber. Such is not the case at least for me. I may not be searching in the right places.. I have yet to EASILY find any posting on this forum. In searching on the ISF site, you find mostly HT dealer/Installerss with dealer mark-ups etc, not too many Independant TV technicians/Service which promote they are ISF proficiant as well.

It may be my paranoia, though when purchasing my Pioneer Pro-1140Hd at Best Buy-Magnolia recently, they were promoting their own staff ISF tech who "Uses SENCORE equipment" Duh......So what! The guy was younger than my stone washed jeans and actually never worked in the TV service business! Duh...!

They had posted test reports on 2 models of Plasmas- a Pioneer Pro-1540 and Panasonic TH-50px-60U... Frankly, the comparisons were bogus as they weren't being comapred against the same models UNCALIBRATED. In Fact, to my eyes using their SENCORE LOOP VIDEO, some uncalibrated sets on display had better images. I would be suspect of BestBUY- magnolia and seek independent calibrations as I am trying to do here.

Back to my situation. Can I call upon you and other forum members who have satisfactory experience with ISF Calibrators/Service Technicians located here in the Metro NY area (Queens & Long Island specifically) provide me with a list of names, comments and costs so I can proceed with eforts to A) have my 1140HD aligned and B) get my RPTV Sony KS-53s65 tuned up and aligned as well.

Thanks for your help!

I think I'm going to want to have my Panasonic TH-50PH9UK calibrated in a couple weeks and was wondering if there is someone that "the forum" could recommend in the Nazareth PA area that has a good reputation and is familiar w/ my display.

I got one from the ISF website, www.IntegratedHomeConsulting.com and the calibrator's name is Paul V. Kraft. Is anyone familiar w/ or can share any experiences with this company/calibrator?

I would say try Kevin Miller since he's a co-founder of the ISF and teaches the classes, but then again I don't know Mr. Sundbom so I can't really speak for him. I'm sure he's MORE than qualified also.

If there's any reason why either of them can't do it, I travel to NY semi-frequently also.

Good luck in your search and enjoy the results!!!

Trying to find someone in my area that can calibrate my television. I am located at Whidbey Island, Washington (Oak Harbor to be exact). Zip code is 98277 if that helps. I have a JVC HD-ILA I believe it is a 60-65 inch display... can't really remember. I would have to locate the documentation in my filing cabinet. I recently relocated from Japan where I had no access to any calibration services and would really like to have it calibrated. I have it hooked up to my HD cable box with component cables and it still looks pixelated. Any help would be much appreciated.

The more you do... The more you'll do. Think about it.

I bought a Samsung HL-S5087W HDTV set and the Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player back in the middle of December...I want to get it professionally calibrated and after doing a lot of research I've heard a lot of good things about Eliab and Kevin Miller...they both get excellent reviews and I was wondering who the absolute best was in my area...I live in New York City--Manhattan---and I want the best possible calibration possible...I just want to ensure that spending an additional $400+ will be worth it so can anyone help me with this decision...Thanks
