    I just finished calibrating my new tv using the Avia disc, and i was noticing a big difference between the brightness of the dvd's and cable feeds, lo and behold the adjustments i made using the avia disc only affect the settigns for the component 1 input. I immediately copied the exact settings from the somponent over to the cable input. was this the right thing to do? or should i hook up my dvd player through each input and calibrate spearately.

    to be honest i am pretty sure i did the right thing, i was just hoping for someone to either agree or disagree with me to be sure.

    cheers

    Greetings

    Cable is variable. Don't expect to apply most of the AVIA settings there. A battle you cannot win.

    Copying the settings over will get you close. And good enough given the other signal sources.

    Pretty much what Michael said. Your critical viewing will be when a DVD is playing. Cable is something just get through. [​IMG]
