    I'm looking for a test to show whether my DVD player passes "below black" (a.k.a. 0 IRE). AVIA does have a black level test, but not a pattern that shows "below black". Is Video Essentials the only source for a blacker-than-black test? Thanks!

    THX Optimizer....The silver/grey 'THX' in one of the vid test patterns should cast a below black shadow.
