I attached a text file (walkthrough) for the service menu based on a thread conversation between Zerog6 and KJGarrison.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...postcount=1279
You can almost do everything within the regular user menu, so you really don't need to go in there unless you have a particular reason. The only reason I went in there was to adjust the "WB Movie" settings, which included the GAMMA settings to lessen the clouding I had. It greatly minimized it and it's barely noticeable.
As to the Monster products, I think they're a bunch of crap for the amount of money they try to sell them for. You can get equivalent quality surge protection for half the price out there. If you're asking about HDMI cables, I got excellent quality cables from monoprice for about $ 4.00 per cable (6 ft. HDMI 1.3a cables) at the time.
With regards to the youtube videos and such, there's no such thing that I know of. I just read the calibration thread from the begining (took a loooonnng time) and it was worth it. I gathered the information and came up with what worked for me and posted it to help others in my situation, like you.
Hope this helps....
