I just got the Oppo DV971H player, and decided to calibrate with Avia and DVE immediately (before watching any DVDs). I was shocked at the poor quality of much of the video leading up to the actual test patterns. I always suspected that someone simply used a hand-held camera to shoot the "sample" test patterns off of a CRT, and now with the Oppo player, these shots look even worse. At transitions of color and shade, there are all sorts of jagged moving edges. It's like the pixels are confused. I'm not sure what this is called, but I am curious if others have noticed lots of video flaws in Avia or DVE ? I am hoping this is just a problem with the source material and not my new DVD player. Is it possible the Oppo player would just accentuate any problems with source material ??? And if the source material is bad, it just makes me question the value of calibrating with Avia or DVE. How can we trust the actual test patterns ?
