Hello everyone, newbie here so please don't mind the questions. I have been reading these forums for the past couple of weeks, and we have finally put the order in for a 50" GWII! I was just curious about the calibration dvds that I have been reading about. Is there a certain one that is recommended over the others? The other thing that I was curious about was the tweaks that UMR has so kindly shared.... are those tweaks to be done after the calibration dvd is run? Just trying to get prepared for our new GWII!! Thanks everyone!
I prefer AVIA if you are only going to get one. The color filters included with it are necessary to set your color decoder.
The tweaks are actually intended to be done before and during your calibration. The list is in the order they are in the TV with the values I am using. Your settings may be something different in some cases (noted by using a test image).
The order I use goes something like this:
PIC-BOOST3 - with Avia or image similar to CNN logo
H POS ADJ* - with THX screen alignment image
PLL-C* - with THX screen alignment image
USER Menu Settings* - with AVIA or THX Optimizer
2170P-4 (SPIC) - with THX picture/contrast display
USER Menu Settings* - with AVIA and/or THX Optimizer
2170P-4 (Color Decoder)* - with Avia
User Menu (Hue)* - with Avia (if it changes go back to color decoder)
2170P-2 (reset values)*- copy settings from User Menu into reset settings. Remember to start counting at zero.
2170P-2 (custom values) - adjust each input to the desired appearance under PRO mode with these values.
*-only for first (DVD) input. Use these values for all other inputs.
