I have the alignment test pattern (very similar to what ABC sometime use) on
VHS tape from when I was at Channel 10. I can dump it onto a DVD if you'd
like and bring it along to CLUG next week.

Subject: [clug] Need a DVD with test patterns

I now have a HDTV and so far I can see that the image is shows
too wide for the screen, so some of the image is lost.

The TV does not offer adjustment of the Vsize of Hsize but I
can adjust the position by +-30 steps. I can reveal some of
the lost image by moving either way, so I know that there are
more than 30 pixels spilling.

I wonder if anyone has a test DVD (my player is only SD but
it do)?

Or can I download an ISO?

I did locate a commercial test DVD
but would rather have something sooner.

I also want to set my PC to 720p50 with a test pattern and see
how much is lost (I can see a lot of loss with DVI output). Where
can I find a good test pattern? I want it to have some ruler to
tell me how much of the image is visible.
