Hello All,

I've recently discovered this thread and found this release to be exteremly useful. As such, I have created a disc cover for the AVCHD release. Attached is my layered Photoshop file for everyone to use and print their own disc cover.
It may not be compatible with all inkjet DVDs so change as necessary.

It's really a 7-zip file, so please remove the .zip extension and use 7-zip to extract.

This AVS HD disc plays great in my PS3. However it will not play in a "budget" $128 Magnavox Blu-ray player I picked up on BF (fantastic player BTW!). This wasn't really surprising based on what I read in the first post in this thread.

Anyway - I do not have a Blu-ray burner, so am I SOL then? I may be without the PS3 for a while (going in for service) when my new display arrives so hopefully I can get this working on the Magnavox Blu-ray so I can calibrate while the PS3 is away...

If your player does not support AVCHD and you don't have a BD burner, then you are probably out of luck. alluringreality will know more about it than I do as he has done more testing on BD players, but I doubt you will have an recourse.

For what its worth, I downloaded this and scanned it. It seems to be clean. It actually is a Photoshop file.

The AVCHD and BDMV versions here are generally like any other homemade HD video that any individual can create. In my opinion Blu-ray does not really intend to make it easy for individuals to create HD video to playback on all Blu-ray players. Although BDMV burned to BD-RE or BD-R should play on most current players, it's still not necessarily a given that such a disk will play on all players. I think it's quite possible the format intentionally does not include a universal way to make homemade HD video that will playback on all players, possibly for copy protection reasons and so the developers can make as much as possible on AACS fees from Blu-ray replication. After a month the current Blu-ray versions are showing about 1800 downloads, but I'm not certain there's a clearly viable way to push the next version into replication.

Anyway, moving on to a more practical discussion. If you've tried the AVCHD, that plays on the PS3, you could try BDMV burned to DVD media with UDF 2.5, but it's very likely that BDMV on DVD will not play on a vast majority of players. If you want to do some testing for us, you could try the link below. The link is a tsMuxer (menu-less) disk that just includes the Basic Settings section and chapter points. It decompresses to an .iso so it needs to be burned the same as the AVCHD version. It should generally be more compatible than AVCHD or BDMV on DVD, but I fully expect that it likely will not play on all players. For example I seriously doubt the first Sharp player would play the following based on prior testing, but some Samsungs might and I have zero idea about Magnavox. If anyone with a Blu-ray player that does not support AVCHD chooses to try the following tsMuxer disk burned to DVD, you might report back the result and your model player.

Hi, I hope this question isn't too dumb... If I have the original AVIA DVD is there any reason why I should use AVS HD 709 in place of AVIA for calibrating my new 1080p display which is connected to a Blu-ray player?

I purchased the AVIA DVD in 2000 when I was still using a 32" tube and only watching DVDs on it. Just wondering if it's not recommended to calibrate a new display using the old AVIA DVD.

Thanks

The basic user controls are black-level, white-level, color, tint, and sharpness. Part of the reason this disk exists is that I wanted to get a little more feedback for setting black-level. The Black Clipping Pattern and APL Low Clipping from this project just give more information for how my digital display performs near black than what Avia provides. As for white-level, from what I remember the first Avia instructions don't necessarily directly apply to digital displays. I think Avia uses a stripe below white for describing how to set white-level, and many digital displays may never clip that low. Color is encoded differently between HD and standard DVD, but it's possible that if you're using color filters you might arrive at similar color and tint settings regardless of source. HD of course provides more resolution than DVD, so a HD source might give more information for setting sharpness than a standard DVD. All in all Avia is still fine for setting basic user controls for DVD playback on a 1080p display, but it's possible you might find that the white-level control on a digital display might not work exactly how Avia describes.

No, you are in luck!

I have the same player - Magnavox NB500MG9. I just downloaded, burned and tested BDMV-v1.exe using the instructions for the UDF 2.50 burning. I Went through a few items in the menu and it works.

Thank you - success!! I followed this and the BDMV format does indeed work on this player. Where I went wrong originally is that I misunderstood the first post of this thread - I thought it was saying that if you have a player that does BDMV that you then must have a Blu-ray BURNER. Upon your feedback and a reread I see that it can be burned just like the AVCHD. As a side note I burned to a DVD+R and it works great.

Interestingly this does NOT play in the PS3. I guess that its not supposed to, and that's OK because I have the AVCHD version that plays just fine in the PS3. I just wanted to point this out in case the BDMV is supposed to play in the PS3.

Snash22 - as a side note, the Magnavox player is indeed excellent. I am really surprised. I want to post some findings here on AVS about it - do you know of a particular thread where owners of this player are discussing it? At a quick glance I didn't see a thread on this player. Thanks again!

Regarding the Brightness setting patterns on this disc - in particular the first two patterns in the basic menu... On the first of these patterns I only need Brightness at +1 to see bars 17 and up flash. However on the very next pattern I need a setting of +3 to see these bars flash.

Is this because the extra light from the brighter parts of this pattern is causing some washout on my pj screen (room reflections, pj ANSI CR etc)? Am I correct to assume that this is the whole point of this pattern - to make sure you can see the black level detail when there is also some brighter content on the screen.

I like my blacks inky black (using an RS1 pj) so I've opted all this time to run with Brightness at 0, even if that means crushing some black detail. Once I go up to +1 the whole black area of the screen becomes a bit brighter - and while that may be necessary not to crush the fine detail in the blacks I prefer the deep black and its a trade off I'm willing to make. I am curious however what your guy's thoughts are on this and if you feel its worth giving up some of the black level to not slightly crush blacks. Thanks.

You're welcome. I guess the magnavox can be added to the list of players in the instructions.

I have nothing to compare it with, but I like it so far. I have only watched one movie, my wife has been ebaying like crazy lately so I'm hoping to get a few Blu-Ray movies under the tree. I gave her a list of the Tier 0 and Tier 1 movies as a "hint".

Here is the thread that deals with the Magnavox.

Most likely, but it's also possible that black-level could vary depending on APL. My digital display always clips black at the same level regardless of APL, but it's not necessarily a given that all displays will function that way. For example I think CRT has a tendency to vary black more depending upon APL than most digital displays, but the basic settings patterns aren't really intended for CRT.

Quote:

Generally that's the intent. The first pattern has a very low APL that will generally be well below most typical video sources, so the second pattern is primarily just to check if the black level on a digital display happens to fluctuate depending upon APL.

Having access to the Basic Settings patterns and the APL Low Clipping I've generally turned up brightness from the settings I use to use from the DVE pattern. When watching The Sapranos on Blu-ray it seemed to me that I probably had been losing a little bit of detail with the DVE settings that were clipping higher than 17. Turning up brightness so that 17 doesn't clip doesn't really change the light output of black on my display, and my opinion is that gamma plays a bigger part in the subjective appearance of dark scenes. Of course many displays do not have gamma adjustments and a majority of people will not have a way to attempt to measure light levels, so I can understand if someone wouldn't mind clipping a little higher to try to make near-blacks darker.

First time owning a projector and first time ever calibrating anything, but the folks out here on AVS have always been very helpful! I burned AVCHD onto a DVD-R and followed the directions in the patterns doc as best I could. I own a Mitsu HC5500 and used a Samsung BDP-1500 for the source over HDMI. I was very surprised that I had to jack the brightness up all the way to the max (+30) on the first 2 patterns. Then I had to take contrast all the way down to -20, which seemed too low. All other settings seemed best when set to 0 (color, sharpness). I watched Polar Express after calibration, and the image just seemed too dark to me, so I increased contrast to 0 and it looked much better. Is this normal? I also have a setting called "color temp" on my remote... is there a pattern to adjust that? Is there supposed to be something to adjust the gamma setting?

A Samsung that plays AVCHD is sort of surprising. My impression was that a number of the earlier Samsung models don't play AVCHD.

Generally it's a decent idea to quickly verify settings received from the disk. The reason there's no mention of levels verification in the PDF is because on the standalone players so far tested they have all appeared to return the same levels regardless of the source as would typically be expected. It would be within the realm of possibility that some player could mess up levels, so it's a decent idea to quickly verify levels, but so far no one has ever reported a standalone player that clearly returns different levels depending upon the source.

To verify levels you need another calibration disk, and for a quick check a standard DVD is fine. If you live in a big enough city the library might have Digital Video Essentials or Avia to rent for free, or there's always Netflix. In keeping with the idea of a no-cost source, the only downloadable DVD I know of is the "Calibration DVD" from http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=852536 so that's what I'll use to describe levels verification for brightness and contrast. If you're using Windows then Nero or ImgBurn should be able to burn the .nrg image from the link the same as burning a .iso for the AVS HD 709 disc.

If you use the linked DVD you need to press the menu right arrow twice to get to the third menu screen. On the third menu select the Contrast-Levels option. The first pattern will be a box inside a black background. My computer decodes the video so the box is level 20 and the background is 16 (black). If you can see the box on the linked DVD then that's basically the same as being able to see bar 20 flashing on the AVS HD 709 disk. To quickly verify levels you would see how low you can set brightness where you can still see the box on the DVD, and then you would see how low you can set brightness with the first AVS HD 709 pattern so that you can still see 20 flash. The settings should be similar, although the DVD might be slightly higher because it's easier to see a flashing change (AVS HD 709) than a static difference (linked DVD).

There is a pattern on the linked DVD marked contrast if you press chapter skip a few times after the brightness pattern. My computer decodes the contrast pattern on the DVD as having a black background with the left half of the interior box at 230 and the right half of the box at 235. The idea of the DVD contrast pattern is that you should be able to tell a difference between the left and right half of the box. If you cannot tell a difference between the left and right half then your display might be clipping whites, which is undesirable. Not all digital displays clip near those levels, but with the DVD you would see how high you can set contrast so that you can still tell a difference between the left and right. The verification with AVS HD 709 is just that the bars marked 233 and 234 on the third pattern should flash at a similar contrast setting.

You really don't explain how you set contrast. The basic instructions for setting contrast are intentionally somewhat vague, because the only absolute with a digital display is to never clip levels below 235. Even if all digital displays could clip near 235, I couldn't simply say to clip below 235 because doing so might mess up gamma (how the display increases light levels between black and white) on some displays. In short my opinion is that "you want to have the white-level control set about as high as possible, as long as it does not introduce any detrimental effects." That's in line with increasing contrast, and I'll probably repeat the point in a future revision of the PDF, but aside from the player possibly messing up levels I'm not sure of an explanation for why you didn't increase contrast using the pattern.

Grayscale (color temp) and gamma are generally items that are easiest to discuss by measurements. Short of getting a colorimeter, probably the best source of information on those items would be in an owners thread for your display. There are calibration patterns (possibly Avia includes one) that are supposed to give an idea about gamma, but I personally find those patterns hard to read and generally worthless.

AVCHD (.exe) or AVCHD (.7z) - v1.0 AVCHD Patterns (11/1/08)
The AVCHD can be burned to DVD for playback on compatible Blu-ray players. Sony and the PS3, Panasonic, Pioneer, and the LG BH200 Blu-ray players have all been reported to be AVCHD compatible. If you are using computer software for Blu-ray playback, it is possible AVCHD could be supported.

BDMV (.exe) or BDMV (.7z) - v1.0 BDMV Patterns (11/1/08)
Some Blu-ray players such as Sharp, possibly Samsung and the LG BH100, do not support AVCHD playback from DVD. BDMV is offered for players incompatible with AVCHD. This format is generally intended to be burned to BD-RE discs with a Blu-ray burner, but a few players will play BDMV from DVD media. It has been reported that the Samsung 1400 and Magnavox will play BDMV from DVD.
..........

I am thinking of using this disk with ColorHCFR and an Eye-One Display LT. But I have a question...

If your player can play back both of these, does it matter which one you use? One of them better than the other in terms of accuracy playing from a BD player?

The video encode is the same for the AVCHD, BDMV, and MP4 versions. The authored files that make AVCHD and BDMV work are a little different, but the actual video used for the calibration patterns comes from the exact same source.

LovingDVD I am new here..well been browsing for a few days and just signed up.. anyways saw your post..and I Have the same BLu Ray Player.. Ive know tried to convert over 7 Matroska files to blu ray (AVCHD) to play in the Magnavox.. everyone has failed at some point..some show nothing (no sound no picture) Others give me sound and no picture...none work yet...
By chance have you or anyone with the wal mart Magnavox gotten this to work? IF so what did you do.

I used tsMuxer to convert the files to Blu Ray (re-encoded down to 4.1 if needed) THen burned with IMGBURN at UDF 2.50.

I used tsMuxer

You don't mention video resolution or audio type, so I have to guess that's most likely the issue. If you want to see if tsMuxer works with your player (likely it works), you could try the video from http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9#post15198979. The video from the links is 1080p/24, so it conforms with Blu-ray video types.

tsMuxer and mkv do not enforce Blu-ray specs for the video and audio. Your player can only playback certain video and audio types, but tsMuxer and mkv do not make sure the video and audio conforms to the formats that your player can playback. Because the programs do not enforce limits on the video like a commercial program would, you instead have to make sure that the video and audio conform to Blu-ray specs yourself (likely you will need to transcode audio or video to compatible types). Either that or you could use a program and create BDMV (snash22 and lovingdvd say the format works in the player), and just let the commercial program make sure that the video and audio is to spec (will likely need transcoding).

Here's the short version of what I said above:
1) tsMuxer probably works with the player
2) Most likely the video or audio isn't to spec
3) If you want to use tsMuxer, then odds are that you'll have to transcode either the video or audio to a format that's in Blu-ray specs

I think the HD video listed in http://www.avchd-info.org/format/index.html is also supported by Blu-ray, so I would stick to those video resolutions and audio types.

I've noticed a few errors with the current version. There are some encoding issues that were my fault and slipped into the v1.0 video without noticing. Considering no one has mentioned the errors to this point, I think that I'm just going to list the items here and then plan on releasing a revised v1.2 disc by XX/XX/XX. The relevant changes are:

1) The red outline on the Sharpness and Overscan pattern in the Basic Settings section appears to be wider than the 1 pixel indicated in the PDF. In the future version the single pixel outline will be switched to white, which seems to work better for encoding.

2) The red and blue single pixel patterns in the Resolution section do not alternate between black and the color as intended. The last 6 patterns in the Resolution section will be dropped on the revision.

3)The RGB clipping patterns need to be revised. The red and green don't decode correctly, likely due to the video encode parameters. This will be altered in future version.

4) The previously requested convergence patterns will likely be dropped from consideration for the future disk due to encoding issues.

I think the first three items listed here are likely the worst issues that slipped into the v1.0 video.


EDIT: Originally I had planned to release the next version by 12/17/08. I ended up changing some encode images that I hadn't planned on, and I found a way to convert BDMV to AVCHD. Both extended the time taken to prepare the new version. The largest part of the work is done, but I didn't try to finish it over the holidays. The current timeline is to plan on having everything together for a new release by 1/12/09.

Any reason in particular? The more the merrier and if they're already there... ?

Thanks for looking into the new convergence pattern possibility - disappointing to hear they will not make it in but I'm sure its for a good reason such as being too complicated to encode.

For the sharpness pattern I like the idea of a single pixel red. Why the change to white? I'd like that red would be easier to pick up than white?

Also any further thoughts on including a lip sync pattern? That would be extremely useful!

The patterns sort of show what the convergence adjustment introduces, but now that I looked more closely at the decode I think it's best to remove the patterns unless there's some way to get them to better resemble the original images, which is beyond my understanding of video encoding.

Maybe it's possible to get them to work, but the only thing I could think to try was using a 16x16 pixel layout and that didn't improve anything. How to attempt to address the issue is basically beyond my understanding of avc encoding.

The encoded video decodes closer to the original image with white. It probably has to do with YCbCr and 4:2:0, but again it's generally a video encoding item that I'm not well-informed on.
