Hi there.
Any recommendations as to where I can pick up a decent calibration disc?
And if anyone knows of a retail store that has blue tint glasses or similar it would be gratefully appreciated.
Cheers Laughing

You don't say whether you need DVD or BluRay but I have used the BRD version of this:

http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Video-Essentials-Basics-Blu-ray/dp/B000V6LST0

which I got via TradeMe about a year ago. Had a quick look on TradeMe just now and can't see any there but the guy who sold it was in business (not just a one-off) so a more careful look might show something. It was available as either DVD or BRD.

The disc came with coloured filters so if you can find it you may not need the blue tint glasses.

I realize that the link shows USA/Can version.

Just found this too:

Murray is the best local supplier for price and service for this sort of thing that I know about.

Got my blu-ray copy of DVE from jb hifi when I was in OZ. I would expect jbhf here to have it as well

DVE will be your best bet

although i found the navigation inside could be quite confusing at times (or may be just me ?)

murray from the OPPO shop will definitely have some good ones instore
