    I have a Loewe Calida (non-HD), and while it's given me a great picture for the past two years, I've recently started to notice a little horizontal bowing. I recently had a "budget" ISF job, and I honestly think the picture now looks even more skewed. This is largely visible only on test patterns, but I know how good this TV can look and I'd like to get the geometry right. By the way, besides geometry, what else should I look for in a quality calibration job? Whats a typical price for a direct view set? Thanks for any help or recomendations. If I'm going to spend the money for a calibration, I'd feel better knowing they had done some really good work in the past. Thanks.

    When I lived in Houston I used a company associated with Audio Concepts....don't remember the name, but if you called AC,they would be able to steer you in the right direction. I also know that Home THeater Store on Westheimer was offering ISF calibratons as an option on thier sets.

    Good Luck

    Thanks. I guess what I'd really like to know is if there are any individual, recommended ISF calibrationists in the Houston area. Like I said, I'd feel better knowing the person working on my T.V. had :
    1) some experience with Loewe televisions
    2) a positive record from some other members of this forum
    Thanks for any help!

    hi Mark, I got your email.

    As of right now I have no plans to go to Houston, HOWEVER, if there were 6 interested parties in the area I would make the flight.

    I do highly recommend Steve Martin who is out of Dallas. His website is posted above.

    regards

    Gregg
