Hey all, I recently used Avia to calibrate my 7+ year old Sony tube tv and I came out with mixed results. I just did the basic calibration of pic settings in the user-level menu, nothing out of the service menu. I had originally calibrated this television using the THX optimizer on one of my discs and like an idiot accidently reset it back to factory default which is torch mode with contrast at max. IIRC the THX optimization gave me different results that IMO looked better. The problem I have with this post-Avia calibration is that it just seems really dark, and it really seems as if my set is accenting red more. Post-Avia, my contrast is down about halfway from max, and my brightness is almost near minimum. The red push problem I was having was corrected by pumping down my color a bit from what Avia told me to do. After turning down my color from the Avia results people didn't seem red and sunburned. I calibrated this Tv twice and came out with relatively the same results. now this Tv is nothing special, it is merely a 20 inchish, analog,entry-level Sony that doesn't even have S-Video, it doesn't have video preset settings so I had to just do a straight calibration using the default factory settings. I did all of this off of my DVD player connected through composite. I'm watching standard cable television off of it and some DVD's. For comparison, I calibrated my newer Toshiba tube television using Avia and the pic comes out looking much brighter than the Sony does. Is what I'm experiencing normal or is it bad calibration on my part? Thanks!
