My first HDTV is being delivered this weekend. Being the eager beaver that I am, I turned down the store's white glove delivery that included calibration, figuring heck I can do that myself. After doing a few days worth of research I now firmly believe that I should have done some research before making that call. I still have more questions than answers, so any help with the questions below would be greatly appreciated.
1) The store's white glove delivery with calibration costs an additional $150. That price sounds a little too good to be true since, from what I have read, I should expect to pay $300-$400 for pro calibration. Am I right to be skeptical and would I be better off investing that $150 towards a higher level calibration service?
2) I am considering AVIA or DVE as a do it yourself option. If I use these am I only calibrating my DVD input?
3) My HD satellite service will be installed about a week after my TV arrives. If I opt for pro calibration am I better off waiting until my HD service is active?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
