    Gregg is planning to come to this area probably around Feb or Mar of 2003.

    Do we have any members in the greater Toronto area that are interested in getting their set professionally calibrated by Gregg.

    Gregg just calibrated my PRO-620HD on Thursday.

    I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants the best possible picture their set can produce!!

    Kevin, e-mail Gregg with your type of display.

    Myself, I cannot wait to get my unit calibrated (11HT).

    Can someone enlighten me as to how you void your warranty by messing around in the service menu or opening the tv up? I've seen several posts about people worrying about voiding their warranty. Yes, it says you aren't allowed to do this, but how in the world can they tell anyway? If you glue back your focus pots, everything looks good as new.

    Chris is right on that point. why create a possible head ache?

    On another note, when I first got into HD TV 3 years ago I had a service issue with my Toshiba set and had to complain to the customer service manager at the Toshiba head office. When speaking with her she RECOMMENDED that I have my set ISF calibrated. That is when I started to learn about what ISF was all about (its strengths and weaknesses).

    BTW, there is a good chance that Michael TLV will be in the TO area in February. If this is the case I will defer the work to Michael, perhaps I will tag along and enjoy the company :) Either way you will receive one heck of a great calibration!!!!

    I'm in the GTA and would be interested. It all depends on the cost though.

    I believe Michael is charging $750 CDN for a full meal deal calibration with 2 inputs (DVD and HD done). But I might be wrong on that. It is the CDN exchange rate that kills us (Im originally from Regina). I charge $550 plus $50 for travel in USD for the same work in the USA.
    Anyways, if interested please email [email protected] or [email protected]
    Regards
    Gregg

    Canadians get charged in the order of $500 to $600. Different price structure for different markets.

    Thanks Gregg.

    Hey Guys,

    I was just wondering if there is a chance you can come to Ottawa when you do your Toronto tour? If not (I'm sure your schedule is very tight) do you know of anyone in the Ottawa region that you would recommend?

    Thanks

    My Toronto/Ottawa Tour occurs in mid to late feb. While there are ISF guys in Ottawa, I do not know of their skill set.

    Hi,

    YES! I am very interested in having my monitor calibrated by Gregg!

    I'm in downtown Toronto and have always wanted my Panasonic plasma ISF calibrated. However, I've been unsure of the quality of the techs in this area. Gregg comes so highly recommended it seems like a no-brainer.

    Greg, do you have experience calibrating plasmas? I understand that RPTVs may benefit more from calibration, but
    I'm really trying to get the very best out of my picture and I'm wondering if plasmas respond well to ISF too.

    Thanks,

    Rich H.

    Michael and I have both calibrated Panny Plasmas. One of the ones I did had a NASTY green hue(in the blacks) to it on 480P. My client was VERY HAPPY and stated it was money well spent.

    Hi guys!
    Michael and I just did a phone chat. WE WILL BOTH BE COMING Southern Ontario and will extend the tour up to Ottawa and area. We will be splitting up the territory so nobody will be left out.
    Here is pricing (in Canadian funds).
    $50 per person towards travel expenses (payable at time of booking)
    CRT Tube sets $275
    Plasma and front projector LCDs and DLPs $400
    RPTVs $600 (setup and DVD gray scale)add $150 for adding HD gray scale.
    To book your calibration WITH EITHER OF US, go to www.lionav.com and use the book a calibration form, then use the paypal link to send the $50 travel fee. The site will not do currency conversion, so at the time of the calibration we will subtract the amount over $50 CDN from the fee.
    Please email myself or Michael if you have any questions.
    Regards
    Gregg
