    Before I go and spend lots of $$ on Lion AV (I need to replenish my HT account) I thought I would ask the question to fellow Z4 owners. I have a room that has complete control of the lights. I was wondering what people have found as good settings for there HT with regard to all of the video adjustments.

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Calibration is sytem specific. Always I recommend at the very least a basic calibration using a proper test disc.

    Greetings

    Use a test disc first ... anything else is like people giving you random combination lock numbers because you forgot yours.

    "excuse me, I forgot my phone number, can I have yours?" [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, that method doesn't work for calibration, nor for picking up women. [​IMG]

    Makes sense. I found a Digital Video Essentials disc that I forgot I had. Will that work or should I get the Avia disc?

    DVE works great. While I like to recommend both just for completeness and videophile-ness, you can do just fine with one. In fact, I prefer DVE for digital displays like yours for a couple more advanced technical reasons on a couple patterns.
