Actually TV101 sounds like the most useful of them all.

I personally think every cable or satellite operator should have a  
full-time channel devoted to SMPTE color bars so folks can properly  
set up their monitors. A reference-level tone would also be helpful.

You want the split field to set up the chroma and tint properly, and  
the PLUGE signal to get the black levels set up correctly. Full-field  
bars are far less useful.
