If you are using both in the system how do you know if it's the dvd or pj that is out of calibration. This problem always seems like the chicken and egg dilemma to me. How do you calibrate both?
Never fear, its quite simple. The Oppo's default configuration is very good. It is not necessary to calibrate the player, so calibrate the display. Obviously, you need to set the player's resolution to match the native resolution of your display before you calibrate.
However, you may have reason to calibrate the player:
If, for example, the display shares its DVI port with another device, you would first calibrate the display to the other DVI device, then calibrate the player to match that device.
Another example - if your display has a limited range or gradation of adjustment, you might want to tweak the player a bit before calibrating the display.
