I just picked up DVE and my handy-dandy SPL meter. I calibrated my speakers without a hitch (minus the sub..I'm too scared to play it at 75 db ), but I'm having a problem with the basic video calibration. How on earth do I calibrate the contrast? That 'blooming' talk made no sense whatsoever. I mean, I can see the scanlines quite clearly on my TV once I get up-close, but I don't know what to look for from there on. Also, what do I do with the plethora of test-patterns in the reference section? There's no word on how to use them in the narration Is there a good DVE tutorial on the net? Thanks for the help, once again!
