    I just use the THX optimizer on the THX cerified DVD's. Many Fox releases have THX i.e. Star Wars, Fight Club, and other higher grossing films.

    Avia or DVE are your best bet as a starting point.

    I recommend against using the THX patterns available on THX optimode DVDs because they are limited compared to a more full-featured disc such as Avia or DVE, and they are also occassionally inaccurate. Usable as a temporary holdover until you get a proper test disc, but I would not recommend them beyond that. Also, some of the optimode patterns on HD formats (BRD) I believe are clipped, which further limits their usefulness.

    I use Digital Video Esstianials (DVE) with good success on my HDTV CRT.

    OK... I KNOW!! this is an older thread, but I am trying to find a calibration DVD... As I've seen most people recommend the DVI dvd... How did everyone get this... Is it just sold out, or are they coming out with a newer/ up-to-date one?? Because everywhere I look it says "pre-order" and they all say it should be coming out around 4/?/2007 ????????
