Hey guys I have a question about brightness, i hope someone can help me. When I press the start button when playing a videogame or when there is a dark screen, like when channels are not available, I have noticed that rising brightness above 45 makes the screen's black color a little gray. However, it stays dark, and not gray, if I keep brightness at 45 or lower (it keeps the same brightness level from 45 and below).
I bought Disney's WOW calibration disc some months ago and when calibrating the screen it gives me a brightness of 47. It has a pattern where there are stars on a black background and some stars must be visible and some not visible.
Well, if I keep brightness at 45, the star that should be "in the verge of being visible" is totally not visible. By rising brightness level at 47, that star is barely visible, which I think that is what it means by "in the verge of being visible"? (the disc does not explain that well).
My question is, do I keep brightness at 47 even though it makes blacks a little gray or do I keep it at 45?
My TV is an already old Samsung LN46B650 model.
