To put it another way: If the increase in black level is caused by an overly aggressive increase in voltage and if the circuit that senses signal voltage to control the 'infinite black' feature is at a point in the signal flow whereby that overly aggressive voltage also is sensed and defeats the feature, then a technical case can be made to link the two.
Too technical for this thread? Maybe.
Yes, infinate black is worth the discussion at the moment because it may
tie into this.
What I cannot understand is why my "infinate black" works one minute and the next it doesn't kick in. I am certain that I do not have elevated blacks to my eyes.
Like I said earlier this is a BS feature to me because I do not use vivid mode, but none the less I would like to know why its flaky.
