    What is the most cheapest or best sensor available currently? Can it be used with the latest HD-DVD calibration disk? Thanks for your response.

    You really need to read the guide. It's all in there. That's the whole point of the guide!

    FAQ: Which Meter is Right for Me?

    Colorimeters, Spectroradiometers/Spectrophotometers? What's the difference and why do I care?

    Figuring out which meter to use for calibration is often the hardest part of calibration, so I've put together a FAQ: Which Meter is Right for Me? It covers everyone from budget Spyder2 and Eye-One Display 2 / LT meters up to the the higher end professional grade Chroma 5, Eye-One PRO, and Hubble (Sencore OTC1000) meters.

    The worse thing you can do is buy either a meter that is severly overpriced or underperforming for your specific needs. Give it a read and figure out which meter is right for you.

    Hope it helps!

    Super Job!!!!!! Very informative.

    and Kal I looked at your HT - how high is your ceiling? Im in the pre-pre-pre-planning stages of doing a HT (meaning I haven't convinced my wife yet) but my ceiling is way low and I don't think I'll be able to do the 2 rows of seats like I would like. Your HT is exactly like I would want.

    Thanks Sam!

    The ceiling in my basement is 7.5 feet high and the riser with the second row seating is 12 inches high.

    The two rules of risers:

    1. It's never high enough
    2. See rule 1.

    If I could have gone higher I would have. The way it works now if the second row people want to recline they can only have 100% view if the first row is also at least partially reclined.

    Funny you should bring this up but I just updated all of my HT pics a few minutes ago as I've changed a TON of stuff and haven't put new pictures up in over 2-3 years.

    A teaser:



    See here for more photos.

    Wow.

    Many changes on Curtpalme.com since I last visited this page.

    I will definately try this on my new 47" LG60 when it arrives at the end of next week.

    Can't wait to see what's behind this ISF service options.

    If I could afford the calibration stuff, I'd use your guide. Maybe when I get caught up financially...sigh!

    Your home theater room is awesome! Very impressed.
