After reading the posts about Avia, DVE and the infamous "Steaming Rat" methods for picture calibration, I wondered if there was an alternative method that would be easier and more accurate. How about running live video directly from a high quality camcorder to the plasma? I think it would help to have another person there to adjust the settings until the live "you" looked the same as the video "you". I think this method would be particularly useful for skin tones, but if other colors are present in the scene, so much the better.


I'm certainly light years away from any expertise in the A/V field. Is there any merit to this method?

That method would only calibrate the feed from your camcorder. You most likely will have different settings for a DVD with DVI, a HD STB via component or SD with composite. I've found that "Steaming Rat" is the best all around method because it calibrates the feed that you are currently watching.
