Im getting aggravated here... How in the heck do you get to the brass tacks of this dvd setup disk>> ?? all i can seem to get to is the how to parts where the mono toned guy talks about dvd and video and this and that... what button do i press to make it get down to calibrating the speakers and video?? Im borrowing this disk and need to get it back to them so i want to figure this out.. I already presed menu like 50 times and went through all the typical stuff and cant get where i need to be

    I will try to help, i have the same disk,first when you insert the disk in my player it automaticly starts playing so i then just hit main menu which brings up a screen that says chapters at the top and lists 5 options #1 extron,#2swelltone, ect page down to highlite program menu at the bottom of the page hit enter then in next menu choose playback options set the option you want the tones or setup to use then hit return then select audio or video for the tests you want to use.Or you can once disk is playing use your dvd players onscreen status to enter the chapter you want to use for example if want the audio tones chapter enter chapter 9 for the tones for dolby and dts 6.1,then it will go directly to that section and then you can use manual repeat to repeat tones and advance at your pace on the tones.Somewhat difficult to navigate until you do it a couple of times,i think they could have made this disk alot easier to navigate than they did!

    Didn't Dr. Spec mention that the DVE disk had problems relating to sub test tones and or sub calibration issues?

    Yeah that is true, forgot about that deal with the sub calibration,i use everything but the sub tones and use avia for sub calibrations.Everything on the dve disk matches up with the avia test tones for calibration other than the sub tones on dve.

    You are not alone. The navigation menus truly sucks on the DVE disk. They should have put more chapter selections on each screen.

    DVE navigation SUCKS.

    While you have it, please calibrate the sub with Avia or S&V and then don't touch anything and pop in DVE and give me your readings on the surrounds/sub.

    I'm trying to build a database on DVE from different users in different rooms.

    You can order your own S&V disc from Amazon; that’s where I got mine a while back.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000CGECF/qid=1081346181/sr=8-1/ref=pd_ka_1/102-9157941-2849705?v=glance&s=dvd&n=507846

    I have talked to my managers at CC to try and carry the DVD again. They used to sell it back before I worked there, but don’t carry it anymore. Their web site has it, but no picture so I am not sure if its even in stock. I tell almost all my customers about it, and they want to get it. I keep sending them to Amazon to get it. It’s a great learning DVD just for them to figure out the wires, and then if they go to Rat Shack and buy a SPL meter they can really get their system sounding optimal.

    Where do you get $80 from? You can get a used one shipped for like $15, or fork out $20 for a new one. It’s a nice little reference DVD to have for your collection. I was suggested to get it from this forum over a year ago and it was well worth it. I just wanted to continue spreading the word......

    Willow, you can get the "sound and vision" test disc by Avia for about $23 from www.amazon.ca . The "Avia" disc is more advanced and does cost $70-80 here. Go with the sound and vision disc.
