    Hi!! (Ron, that was quick!!)
    I was wanting to go to LA anyways and then saw that some of the guys were planning a small meet. So I figured if I come to LA I might as well do a few calibrations. If your interested in my calibration services please post here or blast me an email. My dates (as of right now) are flexible. Carlos has already offered to put me up, if some of the other calibrations are "away" from LAX, it would be nice to have a couch offered to me.
    Pricing will be at 25% off (assuming a group of 6). Please email me for specifics.
    One last thing, I AM NOT AN ISF CERTIFIED TECH!!!!. (did I make that clear ? ) [​IMG] I am a video enthusiast that offers video calibration services. ISF teaches about gray scale and setting of front panel controls. All the extra tweaking is not in the ISF manual. I can show you the ISF text if youd like. BTW, Ive read it cover to cover. I own a Sencore 288 Color Analyzer and a Accupril HD Signal generator, which is more gear than many techs out there. Anyways, check out this site for some great tweaks that I can perform on your set (in addition to grey scale and front panel adjustments):

    Also check out this thread in the HTF Hardware Archieves:

    Email me, or RonP, if you have any questions. I am planning on just being down for a few days over a long weekend.

    Ah! I was just about to PM you (Gregg) to see if you wanted to start a thread just like this one...

    Again, this is a wonderful chance to have your equipment perform at very near its peak capability. Gregg has learned under none other than Michael TLV and I can speak volumes in regards to Michael's work (he did my PT-47 last month).

    If you're in the L.A. area and have been wondering "why are all the good (known) ISF'ers everywhere else (including Canada!) but Los Angeles, look no further and sign up for Greg's mini-tour.

    Sign me up for a calibration. I have a Tosh TW40x81. Services I would be interested in include (taken from link to other site):

    Protective screen removal

    Cleaning of optics and mirror

    Electronic focus

    Mechanical focus

    Herman TLV Manuvuer

    Front panel adjustment of user controls

    Grey scale adjustment to 6500D K

    Lense Stripping

    I think I have convergence, geometry, image centering, and overscan dead on, so unless any of the above items futz with these settings, I shouldn't need them adjusted.

    HI guys!

    Im off to NJ this weekend to do Ron Epstein's set and the HD section of Steve Simon's. I still have space available for LA. After I come back (Monday Jan 14th) I will no longer be discounting my services, so if you want the group discount please let me know prior to the 14th.

    Thanks!!

    Gregg
