I can't get any of the various videos to blink the way that they're supposed to. I've tried running brightness and contrast both all the way up and all the way down, and I never get the patterns to flash as I'm supposed to. I have the light sensor turned off along with all of the other "automatic" picture settings. What am I missing?

When using the DVD that I burned, I'm playing it back in a Sony UBP-X800 with output resolution set to "Native" (I see 720p on the TV which is what I would expect since the TV is set to do the upscaling).
Did you burn the AVCHD version? That should work.

Note that there's no such thing as a "BluRay DVD". It's either DVD or Blu-ray.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Yes, I used the AVCHD version of the content. In fact, I downloaded AVCHD-2d.7z. I decompressed to get the ISO image and burned to DVD.

My TV's are Sony XBR75X940D and XBR49X900E. My experience with them is that I get the same exact results (or lack thereof) when trying to adjust brightness or contrast - I can not get anywhere near to the sections that are supposed to be configured, and I don't even get an even level of control at all. I will see flashing along the upper and lower edges further to the left than what I see in the middle of the panel.

I'm using the Custom picture settings, but I've also tried it with CinemaPro, CinemaHome, and a couple of other general presets as well. Results are always just about the same.

I'm aware of my mistake. I meant to write BluRay Disc but wrote DVD instead (too many things going on at once).

Hi, what's your source you playback the AVSHD and what's the video output settings?

With Sony, they have different names to controls that can confuse.

For example the controls Brightness of Sony controls the power of the back-light, the luminance output, It's the back-light control. This need meter to adjust it, since movies mastered to specific luminance levels, if you don't have meter then use a settings comfortable for your eyes which will not tire your eyes after hours of watching.

The control of Sony named as Black Level, controls near black levels, so you will use the Brightness pattern to adjust it.

Are you asking for information in addition to what I've already posted?

There were at previous page, ok, from your Sony player, the patterns supposed to be 1080p24 to your Sony TV info.

The Plex may expanding the levels from Video to Data so it will not be possible to see any bars flashing below 16 and higher from 235.

Download the MP4 files and load the from the Sony TV USB to use what bars you see flashing there.

I tried playing them using USB as well... No difference.

That was actually what I had tried originally, and gave up pretty much right away. Some months passed and I decided to try again using the ISO image burned to CD and it's no different. The Plex app was sort of a "I wonder if this would be different" test, and it wasn't.

I have a feeling that I'm missing something really simple because I generally can figure this stuff out pretty easily (have worked with technology forever, and work in a high-tech field... Have a pretty high-tech computer network at my house, too... this is beyond me for some reason).

To isolate the issue, for testing use the Sony Player and set it's output to native resolution with YCbCr output.

Be sure you are currently at Movie mode and what the current HDMI input you use from the TV don't have any PC icon as active or named (not sure if Sony has these labels, like LG or Samsung..where it's enabling their PC mode)

Disable @ movie mode all enhancements and display the contrast and brightness patterns, post here what numbers of bars you see flashing without any adjustment from you side and what is happening when you do adjustment. Post all results here.

Maybe Tyler can help.
