    I was just thinking about how great the graphics on my Xbox looked on my TV, and thought that part of the reason would have to be that the TV was correctly adjusted recently using the THX optimode calibrations on Attack of the Clones. It got me thinking about doing the same thing for my PC, and I was wondering if using the same DVD functions would give an accurate result on a PC monitor. Has anyone tried this, or is there a better way to make sure that I'm getting the best picture possible from my monitor?

    Possibly, but the gamma may be set differently. Certainly wouldn't do any harm to try it. There are proper monitor calibration (software) tools available but they tend to be aimed more at graphical work and monitor/printer colour matching.

    chris -
    i like the nokia test. lots of tests to check out the various aspects of your monitor.
    best of all - it's totally free and very easy to use.
