Thanks for the confirmation about 16:9, glad it's not just me.
Regarding the test pattern, since I brought that up, I suppose I should draw something up. In the mean time you can use one of the UK versions that were on the "Test Card Maker" site, or it's fairly easy to find images of NSTC SMPTE color bars that you could use to do a decent job of calibration. Since I don't know jack about web page design, I'll probably just post the images here when I'm done.
So what are people looking for out of some test images? Something like the standard color bars could be used to do Contrast, Brightness, Color, and Tint. Another one with the 5 circle pattern and the edge rectangles could be used for setting up position. Are there any other images that folks see as a need? I know what I'm talking about doing combines a lot of things that THX or other programs walk you through step by step, but it should be good enough for a 480P image.
I'll probably get this up sometime this weekend,
