I recently had a discussion with a buddy about this topic. I have an opinion about it. But I'm wondering what people's opinions are on this topic, considering that many rear-projection unit owners spend a lot more time watching HD broadcasts than DVDs.

Yes, it's worth it, because by adjusting your settings with it, it helps improve the PQ with your cable box or satellite receiver as well.

Here is an e-mail my brother-in-law sent to the makers of DVE. This should help with the explanation.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding "Digital Video Essentials." Unless you have the ability to play back HD-DVDs via the VC-1 (Windows Media Video) codec you purchased the correct disc. In order to properly setup the HD signal that is going into your display you would need to have a source for HD formated test patterns. Currently our Professional Version of the program comes with the Windows Media Video discs described.


This does not mean that you purchased the wrong disc. If you watch standard definition DVDs and standard definition ! sources you can use the disc that you purchased to set that up. It will also get you close for the HD memory of the display.


The important thing to remember is that while the display will show you HDTV formated material, it will also display standard definition material. Each of those use a separate memory based on the input. Ultimately, for optimum results you may want to find a qualified video calibrator to set up the display for you. A full calibration requires special instrumentation and access to the service menu to complete.


If you have any other questions please let us know.


Regards,
