Hi Ralph,

For a good projector, like EPSON5030UB and a good preamp, like Marantz 7702mk2 with Audyssey XT32 calibration, do I still need this Disc for calibration of both video and Audio? I heard from the review that picture quality of EPSON 5030UB out of box is already really good. Thanks.

Follow the instructions on the disc by looking through the filter with your RGB's settings for color correction. My set wasn't off that much, but it did make a difference.

Hi
Is this disc out of print?
Hard to find on line and if you do the price is extortionate.

It would appear to be a good disc to own as it appears to be very accurate and has demo clips for evaluation.
Along with my projector memory settings I could make comparisons of any improvement gained.
I'm in the UK which makes it harder to find this disc.

My understanding is that it has been discontinued.

There is a difference between pretty good and calibrated...a noticeable difference in fact.

Have you tried a different BD Player?
Interesting. Thanks for checking into this again. I currently don't own a different blu-ray player so unfortunately I can't try that.

Another comment I'd like to make now that I have a dedicated small theater room and I'm going through my calibration again. To get around this issue with the PS3 I calibrated the 5.1 speakers with the 5.1 pattern, then switched over to 7.1 for the remaining two speakers. This seems to work fine, however with my AV Receiver remaining at the same volume, the output from the 5.1 speakers are now reduced.

- I setup 5.1 at 75 db.
- I then switched over to 7.1
- I ran a check of the first 5 speakers, and they were now outputting 73 db
- I set the volume of the sbl and sbr speakers to 73 db so they all match.

This is probably receiver related, I just thought I would post it here in case someone else was running into this as well.

For those interested....looks like you can find copies of the WOW on blu ray at Amazon's Canadian site for $22 shipped. That's as of today...they may not actually have stock and they just haven't updated the listing...but can't hurt to check.

Thank you for the heads up.
Just ordered the 2 disc set (and the missing years for Have Gun Will Travel, that I wanted)
