Hey all, I was wondering what some of your recommendations are for a comprehensive Blu-ray home theater calibration disc would be. Basically I want something that will optimize my HDTV as well as my AVR. I have a 1080p Sammy and a new Onkyo TX-SR608 that just arrived. I want to get a disc similar to one I have for DVDs but for HD video and audio. 1080p support, Dolby True HD and DTS-Master audio as well. Does anyone have any suggestions? I just want to optimize my setup. Thanks!

Try AVSF's very own AVS HD Calibration disc: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=948496 and I think this is the wrong forum for this topic. Try the display calibration forum for better help.

I used the free one Sujay mentions in his post. Works great! And it's FREE!

I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

DVE HD Basics is the only test disc I'm aware of that provides for video and audio calibration as the OP requested. Neither of the two solutions previously suggested offer audio calibration.

I am using multichannel analog for Bluray and want to make sure everything is calibrated properly. I already have the Video Essentials DVD (not bluray) that has the test tones in Dolby Digital 5.1. Is this enough or should I get a bluray one. I want to make sure my BD player (Sony S5000ES) is handling the sub output properly. AIX Records Audio Calibration Bluray - how about this disk for audio calibration?
