When I put in other 3d blu rays the 3d black levels blend just fine. It's almost as if the black Inot this transfer is a greyish/red
so it's not 3D in general, just 3D on THAT one disc?
seems odd, but if that's the case, i don't think it's wrong to assume it's the disc causing the problem. i wouldn't say brightness in the 30's is 'wrong', just because it's 'low' but from what you've said it sounds like everything else doesn't need to be that low. only other oddball would be a 'black level' issue, but even that would be an explanation of how they messed up the disc, not your settings.
out of curiosity, if you do adjust brightness down to 30's for THIS disc, does it 'look right'? i mean the pictures still look like the brightness(Black level) is set too high, but from your description it seems that more likely because the disc has black at like 20-25 and you have it correctly set to 16
i don't know that this will be of much help, i'm streaming some sports highlights(basically basic cable) and when i flipped on the 2D-3D conversion(without glasses, as i don't even know where they are at this point) it did appear to be 'appropriate'. it was set to 45 before(my 2D is set at 46), which i don't know if that was adjusted or not, but it's certainly not the default. so i'm guessing i had adjusted it years ago when i first got the display, but i definitely haven't done a full calibration on it.
i did notice some really weird behaviour while doing this though. when i try to adjust the brightness, it seems to default to a very high setting, and while having the menu up and adjusting it stays at that setting. when i exit the menu completely i can see the adjusted setting takes over. when i turned the 3D back off, it seemed stuck in a 'dark' setting. all in all it just made things awkward to adjust. but i'm not sure this applies to your situation at all. can't figure out what setting changed, or hopefully it's just because i was in the apps, but i'm going probably break something out of frustration if i can't stop it from doing that the next time i calibrate...
