which one do you guys recommend...Avia ...guide to home theater...others? HELP!!!!!!!! Mike
I've heard better things about the home theatre. You can get buy w/ using the THX setup on Toy Story or Toy Story 2 and burn your own test tones using programs that you can find on this site: that's what I did.
See if you like this video analogy: THX Optimizer = Composite Sound & Vision Home Theater TuneUp = S-Video AVIA Guide to Home Theater = Component There are 2 versions of the THX tune up. I believe THX Optimizer is for specifically for the movie it came with. Granted, if you've never tuned your TV, it will stil be an improvement. I can't remember what the other version is called and that may be what ChrisClearman is referring to.
Hello all. I haven't used the others, but I find Video Essentials to be a terrific tool for audio and video calibration. I do use the THX optimizer for a frequency sweep and phase check, but for everything else I use VE. Try it, if you can still find it. AJ Garman
I own/use the Sound & Vision HT Tune-up disc. It is made by the same people that made the AVIA disc (Ovation Software). It was cheap ($15). It was very easy to use along with a Rad. Shack SPL meter. It has all the basic audio and video calibrations. I've heard if you have a RPTV, you may prefer the AVIA disc, as it has more calibrations. Best $50 bucks I've spent (S&V disc = $15 + SPL Meter = $35).
