I wonder if you would be able to help me. In South Africa we use PAL. Thus, I need to setup my external TV with PAL color bars. I've search high and low thru the net and I can only find ways to setup NTSC monitor with SMTPE color bars.
Do you perhapse know how to correctly use PAL color bars on a consumer TV so I can at least gain some support from my little tv.
Pal colour bars do little to help setup a TV compared to the NTSC version, which includes contrast and brightness test patterns. The best test pattern is pluge. This gives a peak white and black to help correctly set the contrast. Brightness levels are set by additional vertical bars. These are adjusted so they are just visible above the black background.
Try doing a Google for pluge and you should get your answer.
