Software for calibrating an HDTV?

Suggestions?

I've Googled and most sites say to just hire a "professional" to come in and

do it... but I'd prefer not to dish out that kind of cash. So I'm looking for suggestions

on a decent software package to do it myself with.

Monster ISF HDTV Calibration Wizard dvd

Digital_Video_Essentials dvd

or just trial and error. I finally got mine looking good with use of multiple sources just by adjusting to suit and knowing what to adjust

i would check out the avsforum above or www.avforums.com but look for your tv and check for actual settings.

Iv tried calibrating my monitors and various tvs myself but could never really get it right, so ended up using settings on that site that other people have posted which are normally obtained either by pro's or trail and errors they've had with those dvds, though because each tv is slightly different it wont ever be perfect but tbh for its dam closer than i couldve done

Well, I hooked my computer up to my HDTV and that's when I noticed

it wasn't really calibrated for it. I have a Darth Vader picture that didn't

look right at all...

It's all working now. The picture is clear and detailed again. So now begins

the gaming goodness on my huge ass HDTV. hehe

EDIT

Here's the picture I used. If you can't see the details of his mouthpiece, etc...

your settings are wrong.

I just used the calib tool on the TV itself.

It's alright for me and movies look good so meh. I'll probably download a proper DVD and give it a whirl at some point though.
