    Do you need to use an Avia or VE with a front proj?

    If you have a DVD with the THX calibration screens -- sorry I can't remember what they call it just now and I'm too lazy to look it up -- those should do just fine in a pinch.
    (I have them on my Toy Story 2 disc in the Setup section.)
    But, the fundamental answer is: Yes, a calibration disk will improve the overall quality of your FPTV image and keep it truer to optimum presentation.

    I think it's THX Optimode.
    For Digital Projectors there is the basic Black and White level and Saturation settings. I doubt if there's more to be done.
    However if u're the proud owner of a CRT FP, then one of these disks is a MUST have.

    Thanks for the info everyone.
    David I will keep that in mind. Good to know I have someone reasonably close by hehe. I haven't made a purchase yet. My thoughts tend to drift from 16:9 rptv to Sony 4:3 tube and then the front projection again. it will be going into an apartment and I have been afraid that I won't get a good enough picture from an fp. Watch a lot of sports. I am really concerned about the light issue as I will not be in a basement, so there's bound to be some daylight, and actually I like daylight. Can anyone tell me what videogames look like quality wise? I will be using an X Box. Not even out yet and without question the greatest videogame console man has ever produced.
