Sorry Jerry, but that isn't nearly what I am suggesting. I'm responding to a poster who said that most people who buy a new TV will want to get the most out of their TVs and thus will buy a BD player. My reply is that if most people wanted to get the most out of their TV, the first thing they would do is set it up properly...but most people don't even do that. Heck, you don't even need a professional calibration, but at least get it out of Torch mode.
