I have a 14 foot wide by 18 foot open living room and just installed a Epson 5010 and a ceiling Da-lite Advantage Screen 110 inch. I also have a Sony 42 inch Brava, Panasonic DMP BPT 210 DVD, 7 speaker with a sub from Polk Audio all powered by a Onkyo TX-NR709 receiver. The speaker were set up using the Onkyo microphone. So would there be a benefit to have the system calibrated professionally in audio and video? To me it looks and sounds OK but is it as good as it could be?

It depends on the skill of the technician and whether or not you have proper room acoustic treatments, proper light control (light blocker shades, etc.), the necessary dark colors for the room, or not.

Why waste hundreds on a pro ISF calibration if your room isn't up to snuff acoustically and visually to get the absolute best performance?

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

You are most likely correct. It is in my living room and I don't have proper acoustic (That is a big problem) or proper lighting or light blocker shades. My room is large but open to other rooms so the acoustic suck. That is what I wanted to improve and maybe it is not possible without acoustic panels. My other half would never go for that.
