need a test disc

Postby mkiker2089 » Thu Jan 28, 2010 12:46 pm

I need a Blu Ray that has one of those set up sections. You know the ones "make these bars barely visible, make these colors the same, make this circle fly off the tv and hit you in the head"

Here's my criteria, I don't want to buy one, I want to netflix is which means it needs to be part of a major release. I don't need it to be too detailed either, just getting the brightness and contrast and perhaps verify sharpness.

It's not a mainstream movie but if Netflix has the BBC documentary "Nature's Most Amazing Events" on BD, there's a simplified calibration feature included.

"Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead" comes with an "HD Setup Guide." I barely perused it but it may be of benefit.

Actually, just used this last night. Not entirely sure I set it up completely correctly, but the image looked sharp enough for me.
