Yikes ... the Avia disk is all copywrited and is several gigabytes in size. I would try sending it back and ask for a new copy (of the disk not the daughter). They might hit you for shipping and handling if you wrote them a good letter.

Just curious... has there been an updated version of that disk? Or any others? Last time I checked it seemed like all those calibration disk's were made several years ago.

I had heard a rumor over on AVS that later this year AVIA was coming out with a new DVD, only time will tell. I recently purchased Diskwashers Home Theater Setup disk and it worked pretty well for under 10bucks from parts express. I also use the THX stuff to help.

I don't think Avia has updated, so with todays new HDTV's they are really best only for the audio portion.

I usually keep a dvd with THX tests on it close at hand to play with the toys.

I thought I read somewhere on those THX setups not to rely on them for level adjustments.

Yes, I think the THX stuff is pretty good for color/contrast/etc... but sound levels I would use an SPL meter and the AVR's test tones.
