    Generally speaking, what is the best setting for the picture controls (brightness, contrast, etc etc) on a dvd player when calibrating with VE/Avia? Should I use one of the preset modes (cinema, fine, etc), or 'user' mode with all settings at '0'? I'm using a Panasonic RV-80 (an absolute steal at $150 on ebay), which I know a few people here are still using, so I'd appreciate hearing from them especially [​IMG]
    Also there is a setting under the 'user' profile of the picture controls called 'DNR'. I know what DNR does, but I don't know where the best setting would be (and the manual is no help). I'm looking to get the best possible PQ out of my Wega.
    thanks in advance

    I generally leave the picture-setting controls in a DVD player to their neutral default levels. In fact, I usually leave them along altogether.
