    I don't want to do much in way of calibration. Is the thx calibrator that is on Thx certified movies enough? I just wan't my picture at the correct contrast and brightness levels and my audio to have the correct volumes.

    The THX will work in a pinch, but it is tailored to the particular movie that it comes with, so every version is different. If you truly want ot calibrate to reference, Avia, Sound & Vision or Digital VE is the way to go. Make sure you use an SPL meter to calibrate the audio.

    Do local AV stores carry Avia or DVE? I would really prefer not to buy online. [​IMG]

    Check both Blockbuster and Netflix if you only need them a short time.

    I was in Future shop last week and I saw the VE set up disc. But now that I think of it, it might have been at A&B Sound. But it was one of those two in Saskatoon.
