    In this link there is a procedure for doing a DVD calibration. What is the purpose for it? The procedure doesn't really say anything about what the calibration does or accomplishes except at the bottom it says
    "When calibration is completed, follow the onscreen instructions to exit from the Test Mode Menu. Now you can turn the player back on and try your dual layer discs to see if the layer change has improved."
    Is that all it does? Help the layer change?

    I don't know much about this, but this guy's webpages have been mentioned here before; for example, in some other thread here, I found a link to a different page this guy has about the service mode of Sony TVs: http://members.accessus.net/~090/awh/sonyadj.html

    Sounds like that's all it's doing.

    Something strange I did notice last night which may be due to the calibration. When I stop a DVD the display reads "Disc will restarts blah blah blah..." I noticed the bad grammar in "restart(s)" I think it used to say restart which was correct but now it says restarts. Anyone else verify this? Because I either never noticed it before or it changed when I did the calibration.
