    How much of a difference should I expect between how my TV looks now, calibrate by myself using DVE and a full-blown ISF calibration? Also, how the heck do I know what services I should have done? Bill

    Best video cable for PS2 / HDTV combo

    Anyone out there feel the MonsterCable component cables are the best available? I picked up a pair off of Ebay but they didn't work so I had to return them. It seems Monster's aren't built too well as there are always tons up on Ebay. Right now I'm using Pelican's S-video with an Acoustic...

    DVD players withOUT DD/DTS Processing

    It continues to puzzle me as to why almost all DVD players still incorporate surround processors into their machines. By now, the vast majority of buyers of DVD players fall into two camps: Those that own a Reciever/Pre-Pro with processing built in. Those that have no interest in HT and just...
