I'm just curious...
Who out there does any sort of calibration on their home theatre gear and whats you're preferred way to do it?
Can be anything, eyeing it up to colorimeters.
I personally use a combo of Avia, Digital video essentials and a few other calibration dvds in my store and on friend's tvs.

Laptop: Toshiba satellite, T5300, Go 7300

I have used the THX calibration that comes on some DVD's. I used this on my TV and two friends. Works well. Others I have just played with by sight as they had the contrast etc set to max and it was killing me looking at it.

I am a certified isf calibrator, and just this week became the official isf calibrator for the Panasonic Premiere VX100 range Plasmas in NZ.
I also do most other types and standard models and brands.

I use a video generator, colourmeter, spectrometer, software, the cal DVDs and patience.

Wow didn't know there was anyone isf certified in NZ, how did you get into it and become certified?
I'm keen to make the step up from dvds but I'm unsure how to go about it.
