For now try renting that calibration dvd from block buster. Here it is -> http://www.ovationmultimedia.com/products.html
Now rent that or the others.
What is up with the "calibration" of plasma and LCD TVs. Best buy wants $300. 00 to send some tech out after TV is broken in(1000 hrs). They showed me a demo of what it does, it keeps dark colors from running togeather, measures kelvin temp. and sets accordingly. Sales person said all new TV's default settings are manipulated to give the best picture in the show room(more blue, more red to comp. for blues, increased contrast, etc.., and the TV's therefore run 30% hotter than suggested. They recommend the calibration and the demo shows more picture detail but I don't know if this is just another trick to get into our wallets. Salesperson said it has to be done by a certified tech and they actually open up the TV to make adjustments. It is not something that can be done within the TV's menu options.
Anyone delt with this or have any input?
