Hey, D-Nice, I have a few questions about calibration of the new 8Gs (I'm thinking about going with the PRO-110FD, by the way):
Do you think it's a good idea to get this panel ISF calibrated, or do you think that would be overkill? I'm really interested to try out your settings once you get them published, but I'm just wondering if for an investment like this (and for a new technology, as well) if it would make sense to take it to the next level. FYI, I've also used DVE in the past and am very familiar and comfortable with using that DVD to calibrate a set, although that was only on SD CRTs and never on an HDTV or plasma.
If you do think it's a good idea to go with an ISF tech, should i go through the break-in procedure before I schedule the calibration? Or is that not necessary?
Will ISF techs be prepared to calibrate a brand new panel like the 110FD, or will they need to take a refresher course, get some other kind of special instruction from Pioneer, or bring along any different equipment before they go out to calibrate these panels? Will service menus be so similar to the 7Gs that taking a refresher course to calibrate the 8Gs is unnecessary?
And lastly, can you or anyone else here recommend a good ISF tech in the NYC area? I'm thinking about ordering the panel through Harvey Electronics and seeing if they have techs, but would like to hear if they're any good first.
Thanks for your help!
