    Does anyone know where to get some cheap color filters for TV calibration? I have a red one but need a blue and green one. Someone gave me an avia dvd and It doesnt have the filters with it.

    Not sure of the prices but here is the recommendation from the Avia website http://www.ovationsw.com :

    Obtain glass optical filters from a photographic supply shop. The following photographic Kodak/Lee filters may provide better separation of colors but even these are not perfect.

    Deep Red Tricolor #29
    Deep Green Tricolor #61
    Deep Blue Tricolor #47B

    I called the number on the avia website to ask about filters, they shipped me three new filters for free no questions asked. They arrived 2 days later.

    Thanks for that tip, Bob! I called and they are sending them to me too. Of course, I already ordered the blue filter glasses from THX's website (only $2).
