I got DVE and the dang thing nearly put me to sleep!!! Why can't they just go right to the gray-scale screen and say "set your display to ...", and then the color pluge and just tell you what do do?

Anyway, I did the easy calibration and now my set really looks amazing. I don't like basketball, yet I was watching it just for the "wow"!

I tried the advanced calibration but got too bored watching and waiting for instructions. So what are the red and green filters for? I set the color with the blue filter (per the instructions) and even though I was not asked to adjust for red and green I did anyway. As I adjusted the color for the red and green, then the blue went out of line.

I'll try watching it again when I am fresh and have lots of caffeine to keep me awake.

The disc I have is the combo HD DVD. Since I don't have a HD-DVD I played it with the other side, but it kept referencing a "crt" tv. Are both sides the same as far as TV calibration? If I put in the HD side would anything happen?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, you have to listen to the "boring" parts so you actually know what you are doing. Comes with the territory. A lot of color patterns only use one filter (which would be explained in the directions) and using the other colors are incorrect.
