What DVD's have the HTT setup thing?

Hi all, just a quick question and then I'll delete this thread. I know that several DVDs have the little "Home Theater" setup, or test program on them. You know, the thing that puts a tone through each speaker consecutively until you finally push stop. I just bought a HTT system and want to find one of those DVDs in my collection to try it out. What are some of those DVDs??
You can see my collection at this DVDProfiler page and help me out if you have a chance, okay?

Thanks!

Your home theater reciever may have a "test" button on it that does the same thing.

Why don't you just buy a real setup DVD like the Sound & Vision one.

I believe most DVDs that are THX certified have the test. Either of your Star Wars DVDs will have the THX setup.

To make the most of the set-up features, you'll need a sound meter, and you'll need to obtain a blue filter from THX. You can find the request form at www.thx.com.

Thank you all, especially TomOpus and SuckaMC.
I'll look into what the rest of you said.

Thanks again!

This is the only HT setup disc you need. It is the best setup disc out there.

Have to agree here. It will take longer than the THX optimizer but is well worth the effort. Especially if you have a large screen.

I've heard that these discs are incredibly difficult to navigate. Any comments guys?
