    I just bought this DVD at a store today and there is a section where you can do some video tests. I think its called THX Optimized. I was just wondering if this is similiar to the Avia or Video Essenstials setup disk because i dont want to spend like $30 on it if its the exact same as the one on the Pearl Harbor DVD. Thanks everyone.

    Yes, similar though just general basics.. No where near the information avaiable on Avia or VE.
    It, ~{Pearl Harbor}~ contains some basic audio vidio test that can help your audio vidio set up. Also note they ask you to go to www.THX.com for more info.
    In short, it is not a replaceent for Avia or VE, but can help one who has neither! But of course it's free, and thats a very nice bonas anyway you ook at it... [​IMG]

    watch out- i am pretty sure the THXoptimode test patterns help you optimize your settings just for THAT SPECIFIC MOVIE.

    My last disc that contained the THX optimode tests now recommends not using the audio test signals to balance speaker levels.
    They are provided for position placement and verification only.
