Calabration from USB?

Hi all, this is my very first post on this forum and probably not my last.
I have just purchased my very first HDTV a Samsung UA40C6200. I don't have a blu-Ray yet an may not get one for some time. But I have stacks of HD .mkv movies that I play from the usb port on the tv via the tv's own media player and would like to know if there is a calabration file I can download to calabrate the tv?
I have a regular dvd player hooked up via component but I assume that I would get a slightly different looking picture through that connection.
Anyway what are your suggestions on calabrating when viewing movies via the usb palyer?
Also how do you calabrate for regular digital tv signals?

Sorry about the long winded post!

Use a calibration disc in a laptop, hooked up to your display via USB.

Try AVS HD709 from AVS Forums, there should be a way to get a file you can play on a device connected by USB to your display. I have used that free download written as AVCHD to a DVD-R and if you have a device that can play AVCHD, that should work. If not, then there may be a file format that can be downloaded that you can play or a conversion to a file format you can play. I didn't read about the possibilities because I have a Blu-ray player which works great for that purpose including playing AVCHD and many other purposes and don't bother with USB media players which are pathetic in comparison to Blu-ray.
