    I recently purchased the Sound & Vision Home theater Tune up DVD to adjust my new Mits WS-65809 HD RPTV. What if any are the differences between this and the AVIA discs. I hope the S & V is good enough, I have spent to much money recently, and I want to get my set ISFed in a few months. Someone let me know.

    Of all posts I've read in my search on the subject, this is the first that really points in the direction of picking up S&V over Avia. I do have 6.1, but I am a fairly technical person. I'm somewhat leaning to S&V based on cost.

    Any further commentary by learned HTF members would be great.

    i also have the s&v dvd. it worked well for me (i have a basic sony 32" direct-view).
    it had all the basic calibration tests but i do wish it could have been a little more "in-depth". if i ever get a widescreen i'll probably look for a more detailed calibration dvd. the hosts of the show do a decent job explaining how to use the tests.
    btw, you may find this thread worth reading. it includes a mini-review by me.
