Calibration on different inputs

Ok, I thought I kind of had this calibration thing figured out. I bought the DVD Essentials disc and calibrated my tv through a component input. I read a post earlier today by 57 that the settings for the DVD player and PVR can be significantly different.

So, how would I go about ensuring that I am getting the best pic quality through the other inputs?

This is what I have:
Shaw 6416 via HDMI
Non-upconverting DVD via component to AVR
Wii via component to AVR
AVR component to TV (for Wii and DVD)
TV is a Sony KDL40S2400
I have a regular xbox via composite that doesn't look quite right, but it is not a concern for me.

In addition to what 57 said, for TV signals try to find broadcasts of colour test patterns. Many SD stations show these while off the air. For HD, HDnet schedules a series of patterns at least once a week. Showcase HD transmits a standard colour bar and PLUGE most mornings just before 6:00 (or maybe it's 7:00).

You can use these along with the glasses and instructions that you got with DVE to help calibrate your TV sources.
