Do you guys recommend Avia Guide to Home Theater calibration dvd for a HDTV Direct View TV?
I use it, and I would.
even the worst calibration DVD will make any consumer-grade TV look better than not being calibrated at all.
I used Video Essentials (VE) and I highly recommend TV calibration. It does make pleasant difference. Earlier I was using Panasonic RP82 DVD player and probably got used to its deafult settings. When I bought Pioneer 563A, I did not like its default video settings. I had never calibrated my CRT-based direct view interlaced TV. After calibrating it with VE, I now notice what I had been missing! Compared to audio calibration with sound pressure level meter, video calibration is sometimes more subjective for certain test/calibration signals [especially so since most non-professional calibrations (including mine) for direct-view TV are done without any video measurement instruments]. Despite that, TV calibration is worth the trouble.
YES. a THOUSAND times yes. TOTALLY worth it for both audio and video! I use Avia, not experienced with VE, both should suffice fine i'm sure.
