And are you talking about the .pdf's at the end of the first post?

Yes.

If so I downloaded those and am still a bit confused. Where am I supposed to start?

It's a lot to explain.

Another good commercial disc is the Spears & Munsil. I like it better than the DVE disc, and it has on screen help and examples of what good and bad patterns look like for each screen.

Wonderful. I think I will go with the DVE disc because I can find it at my local Best Buy. Plus it comes with blue filters! Thank you for your help.

I have an Oppo BDP-83 but no blu-ray burner. Burning the AVCHD iso file to a standard DVD doesn't work since it's a blu-ray, so how do I get it on a DVD? Or how can I get the full res blu-ray files on a flash drive?

Thanks.

Burning the AVCHD iso to standard DVD works perfectly fine. Thats the whole point of it. I've done it, so have loads of other people. You don't need a Blu-ray burner. If you have a Blu-ray burner, a separate download was provided.

Follow the instructions given in post#1 of this thread. Imgburn worked great for me.

Using the PATCHED version on my BDP-83 with no problems, on a standard DVD.

I have carefully followed the steps to burn the file AVCHD-v1_3.iso onto a Verbatim DVD+R with Imgburn and also CDBurnerXP. They burn something onto the disc, but I end up with an unreadable disc, no video_ts or audio_ts folders.

What could be wrong?

Try a DVD-R instead.

If you have access to a computer with Vista or Windows 7 (not XP or older) you should be able to see the BDMV folder placed on the disc if you look at the disc in Windows Explorer. If you can see the BDMV folder in Windows Explorer (Vista or Windows 7) but the player will not read the disc, then like Kilgore commented it's possible the player has issue with the media. If Windows Explorer (Vista or Windows 7) does not show the BDMV folder then the issue is probably with the burning process.

Note: The .iso files are used to create a UDF 2.5 or 2.6 disc that Windows XP (or older) cannot read without additional software.

Great set up disk!
my TV's have never looked so good.
I used the AVCHD on my PS3 and calibrated my LG and Sharp. Very nice!

For those of you that are in need of filters, i found some on EBay check out item # 140411800030.

I tried the disc in the player and it worked. As you say, on the computer it would be unreadable with Win XP. The menu for the calman fields didn't display correctly though.

This is the only report of a menu issue on the current version. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post16748783 explains how to check the AVCHD .iso for errors that could possibly result from the download or decompression.

I am trying to calibrate with CalMAN version 4 and found, that the new version is expecting diferent sequence of patterns, than the older version. Will the AVS HD 709 patterns be reorganized for new version of CalMAN?

It is possible that the project here may go through one more revision. I am not familiar with the new version of Calman to know what it is expecting for patterns. All I know is that their website was still hosting the previous version the last time I looked.

I don't know exactly what you mean. The available downloads are either executable (.exe) or 7-zip (.7z). The .exe can only be decompressed with Windows, and that is generally the easiest download to use if you have access to a Windows computer. For most people the .7z files require additional software to decompress, and you do not state what software you are using.

Basically the issue could be either on download or decompression. Without further information I have no guess at what is going on. To rule out issues with the download you could use a software program to calculate an md5 for the downloaded file. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post16748783 generally explains how to use the free md5summer program with Windows to calculate an md5. The first post has a link to the md5 values for the different downloads. If the md5 value your computer calculates matches the md5 from the first post, then the download can be considered good and the issue would have to do with decompression.

I am running Vista, OK did the D/L again, did the .exe, when all was done was asked to run or cancel, clicked run and saved to folder on desktop, when done I go to folder to get ISO there is a file there it is a bitzipper file when I clik to open there is nothing there to extract, and thats where I am stuck, thanx

Forget my previous complaining about patterns an CalMAN 4. They are allready solving problem.

It is also interesting to note that the sequences for both grayscale and gamut now begin with a 100% white reading. This means that we will likely require new sequences on the AVSHD DVDs to be able to use the auto features.

Or just manually do the 100% reading, move to the 0% point, and start the automated process. It's what I've done when using a disk that isn't set up to work with CalMAN's automation.

In pattern auto sense mode we start with 0% instead of 100%Derek the CalMAN Hardware interface and Colorspace Engine Guy

The bitzipper program might not be able to deal with the file. Step 4 in the first post describes what to do with the decompressed file. If you don't want to install Imgburn, I think the last Vista service pack added .iso burning by right clicking the file in Windows Explorer.

I'm having real problem using the iso file. I don't have access to Nero so tried using Free Easy Burner but that says it is not a valid iso file.

Any help would be appreciated,
Brian Hampton's Avatar Brian Hampton 01:22 PM 06-11-2010
I tried downloading this on 2 different computers using both the exe and 7z formats and they always compress fully.. In other words they don't just compress to an ISO they decompress to the folders that must be in that ISO.

It's really,... really, annoying. I guess I have to keep trying.

Still happening I get 2 folders... One says Certificate and the other BDMV or something like that. Wish I could find the dern ISO.

Edit - The AVDHD version unzipped as an ISO so all's ok now.

I believe the last Vista service pack and Windows 7 support .iso burning from Windows Explorer without any additional software. Otherwise Imgburn is the recommended Windows software, and there is an example of how to use the program in the first post.
Brian Hampton's Avatar Brian Hampton 06:23 PM 06-11-2010
It's great.

I have DVE but I don't think I'll use it anymore for video adjustments. I really like the patterns and the way it's so easy to navigate.

It's just great.

Does the Basic settings work well enough?

The basic settings are fantastic for setting black and white level and also for color and hue if you want to set those.

The advanced settings are for calibrating grey scale which is a different level completely. If you are happy with the results of the basic settings you can stop there.

And of course you need a colorimeter of some sort to do anything with gray scale and the other "advanced" settings.

The Misc Patterns basically allow you to check for different issues that wouldn't necessarily show up with the items in Basic Settings. The following are the first things that come to mind:

Color Clipping - If you're setting contrast high enough to be clipping gray near 235, rather than nearer 254, it would probably be a decent idea to check where the colors are clipping. The flashing pattern named something like RGB High Clipping can be used to check where the colors run out, similar to the Basic Settings patterns for contrast. If the colors are clipping below 235 then it would probably make sense to lower contrast.

Gamma - For new users this is probably easier to measure than to check by eye, but it is possible to do a simple gamma check with the bars pattern (color and grayscale). Begin with contrast set somewhat low, and begin turning up contrast. As white gets brighter the difference between adjacent bars should slightly increase. What you want to watch for is if the bar at white (235) begins to blend with the bar below white, or if the step up in brightness from one bar to the next drops, at high contrast settings. Displays that are able to clip near 235 will probably have more of a tendency for gamma to drop near white (bars near white begin to blend together) than displays that clip nearer 254.

Banding - The shadow of the snake in the lower picture at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posterization shows an extreme example of this possible effect. Some displays, possibly LCDs more than others, may tend toward banding at high contrast settings. You can use the grayscale ramp to look for banding. Begin with a low contrast setting, and begin turning up contrast. Watch for any tendency towards the effect shown in the link at higher contrast settings.

Scaling - The resolution patterns can be used to check if the display is receiving and displaying an unscaled 1080p signal.
Brian Hampton's Avatar Brian Hampton 01:12 PM 06-13-2010
Wouldn't clipping white above 235 be a good plan?

I can actual get bars to flash in the white pattern to 255 but I figured clipping above white would present the correct response.
