I was wondering how other users calibrate thier TV's for viewing content off of their 622. My TV remembers different settings for differnet inputs, so I have done all the cabliration I need to for my DVD and computer since I can load up many different test patters. Is there a way to load test patterns in the vip622? Is there a special channel that displays color bars and gray scales?

If I am not mistaken, HDNET runs a test pattern from time to time for calibration. I am unsure of the schedule, but it usually pops up in the forum when someone notices it on the guide. Just set your timer, and calibrate at you leisure.

HDNET periodically has a test pattern. The next one seems to be on March 25 at 6:50 AM.
Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.
