It's a set up disc for video to help you calibrate your tv to get the best picture.You don't need it.I've never used one.

Just because you've never used one doesnt mean it isnt a useful tool.

To get the best out of your setup you'll need to calibrate your audio system with a sound meter and your screen/projector with this disk and the provided filters.

Never said it wasn't useful.He asked if he needed it to watch movies. Some movies come with a calibration tool built in.
I think The Incredibles has one.

All THX DVDs come with the THX Optimizer for calibrating audio and video. A new version of DVE is coming out called DVE HD Basics and is available on Blu-Ray and HD DVD. DVE HD is already available on HD DVD and has a lot more tests than the THX Optimizer although a lot of these tests require specific equipment. I'm not sure what HD Basics is going to feature but it has already been delayed which happened numerous times to the current HD DVD
