    Living in the uk I'm finding it hard to locate any sort of calibration discs, plus the fact none are designed for PAL.
    I can burn audio tracks to cd and jpeg's to a vcd.
    Video Calibration
    Seeing as I use a RGB scart connection from my dvd, colour is fixed so I only want to calibrate brightness & contrast (sharpness?)
    What image will I need on the disc and how do I adjust the controls correctly going by the image?
    Audio Calibration
    I don't suppose I can create a 5ch test tone on a cd-r, can I download a DD file of pink/white? noise to calibrate with? I suppose I could create a stereo track and swap the inputs front to rear on the amp.
    Thanks
    Dom

    If you have a THX movie, there is a small calibration program included with THX movies in the set up section. If not, try the www.thx.com website as the site is referred to in the set up program. Haven't gone there myself, so don't know how useful it will be but might have a download program available.
    There are other sites with freeware available for download.
    Good luck

    hi dom, i just purchased Sound&Vision calibration disc from amazon. it works, im in Pal territory, Australia.
    so i think the disc must be multiregion.
