    Hi I've been looking at getting at least one of these disks for some time now. So far, I've only found the VE disk locally. Should I buy now or wait for the new version. I don't have a progressive scan tv and the new disk is suppose to have more progressive scan functions right. So should I buy now?

    As for Avia. Anyone know where I get the best prices and have it shipped to Vancouver, Canada?

    You can get Avia at DVD Planet. I am waiting on the Home Theater Tune-Up by Sound & Vision and Ovation. You can check out HT Tune-Up at Sound & Vision's web site.

    HTT should be shipping by early Jan. I don't think we'll have fast enough turn around at the plants to ship in time for Christmas.

    How 'bout Video Essentials? Should I buy now or wait for the new version considering the fact I don't have a progressive scan tv?

    Are there any Canadian dealers for AVIA? If not how much would shipping cost to Vancouver, Canada be if I buy from Ovation or Dvdplanet?

    Howard,

    Just go to DVD Planet's web site and go to the help section and then to shipping. It will give you the price for shipments to Canada.

    Howard I was also looking for a Canadian source for AVIA...no luck. If you go to DVDExpress.com you can get this for around 39 buck US with a $2.49 shipping charge to Canada. This is about $67 CDN. If you want to try Video Essentials you can go to http://www.pricegrabber.com and get a used version for about 15 bucks US and $3.50 shipping (about 30 cdn). I have been thinking about this... I was able to find this same DVD at A&B sound for 70 bucks
    the used version will take some of the pain away ... when the newversion comes out

    Hi Howard,

    You can get a copy of Avia at any Future Shop or A&B Sound.

    Seymour A&B have copies I'm sure.

    Is the "Home Theater Tune-Up by Sound & Vision" made by the same people who make Avia? What are the differences between the two? Sound & Vision is less than half the price of Avia.

    I just ordered the Home Theater Tune-Up from DVDplanet for like 16 bucks shipped. Should be as good as Avia. The software is made by Ovation, the same company that did the Avia DVD.
