    i've been meaning to find this out for some time, but keep putting it off...

    my parents have a panasonic HD 52" RP CRT (that had been moved a few times). i never released how bad the HD picture looked until i bought my panaosnic HD 42" plasma. i tried calibrating their tv with my dv esstentials dvd, but i just don't think i have enough room for adjustment (without going into the service menu). it's beyond tweeking- it needs a complete calibration.

    where or who can i call to come out and calibrate their tv?

    thanks,
    Berk

    Hi Berk
    It helps if you let us know where they are located ;-)

    Well, you could try these guys. [​IMG]

    In part it will depend on where your parents live. You can find an Imaging Science Foundation certified technician in their area at the ISF homepage (ISF is the group Joe "Digital Essentials" Kane founded.)

    Regards,

    Joe

    nice- ISF sounds familiar. I think a friend of mine mentioned that awhile back. So, an ISF technician is the best way to go then?

    looks like there is one pretty close by...GNT Audio/Video

    thanks!

    a typical service is travel plus 350-600, depending on what company you get to perform it.
    the quality and quantity of work will greatly vary by the company (in no relation to the price).
    Regards

    It should. Joe Kane of the ISF created the Video Essentials DVD you mention having used, and you'll notice their logo on the cover and in the credits.

    thanks everyone.

    350-600!? i hope to god the calibration makes a noticable difference. otherwise, i'll never hear the end of it from my dad.

    i'll have to do some research on the quality of this place before i push this along.
