I'll be getting one soon, but in the meantime, I'll be helping him with his new Hitachi 43FWX20B. Aside from getting on his good side, it'll be a nice practice run for when I get my own RPTV within the next month or two. He's already buying Avia on my reccomendation, and I know I need to dial down the video settings from the default "torch" mode as soon as we turn it on. My question is, is there a break-in period for the TV before I calibrate it with Avia? It's my first time using a calibration disc, and I understand that Avia in particular is very explanatory, but are there any helpful hints I should know right off the bat? Should I do do the video set-up in any particular order, or will the disc walk me through it? I'm fairly proficient with computers, but very new to home theater. Thankfully, my general knowledge has grown considerably by lurking in these boards. I don't think he's completely sold on getting an ISF calibration, but since we'll both be getting these TVs from our company, I can probably convince him that it's a good idea.
