About the Avia Guide to Home Theater

Understanding and optimizing your A/V system is easy with Avia's Guide to Home Theater in your DVD player, and the remote control in your hand. Start with the video tutorial, explore "hot buttons," or go directly to any topics you want to explore in depth.

A series of test tones helps you correctly set up your speakers and subwoofer. Use the video test patterns to maximize your picture quality using familiar "front-panel" TV controls (color, contrast, tint, etc.).
