Default Blu-ray Calibration using a DVD Optimizer

Hi guys. I wasn't exactly sure where to post this topic, so if this is in the wrong section then mods please feel free to shift it where it needs to be.

Anyway, I was just wondering, would it be ok for me to use the SD version of the THX Optimizer on my DVD for adjusting the settings for Blu-Ray? I should mention that I have already calibrated my HD TV with the T2 Skynet Edition which obviously had the HD version of the THX Optimizer since it was a Blu-Ray disc, but its been a while since I did it and I don't own it anymore, so I was thinking about checking the picture settings with the THX Optimizer on my T2 Ultimate Edition DVD. All I need to check up on is the contrast and brightness controls since the coulor and sharpness controls don't need checking or tweaking.

Anyway, in short, would the SD DVD version of the the THX Optimizer be accurate for contrast and brightness picture settings?

I would suggest downloading and burning the AVS HD 709 calibration disc. It's free and works well. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to it since it's at another forum, but just google "avs hd 709" and you'll find it.

Seems a bit too complex and time consuming for me.

Maybe you have optimizers on some of your blu rays.

Disney discs have some test patterns (similar in scope to the THX optimizer)

Some Terminator (and other THX discs) have the optimizer.

Otherwise rent or borrow a disc with those patterns.

Many Sony Blus have test patterns hidden. I think you push 7669 (or however you would spell Sony on a phone) to access them.

AVS 709 is my favorite solution.... It isn't difficult either. You can get the instructions on PDF as well. Its much better than any other way.

I used this one for the screen some time ago:


Then I used this other:


And then I retweaked some settings by my personal taste
Blu-21, if you want to, I can send you a PM to share with you the links for those demos.
What I need to know is the right settings for the HT, do you have one?

Hope this help
