I have self calibrated my Panasonic TC-P50S30, and video from my PS3 and DirecTV DVR looks fantastic.

Video (blu-ray & DVD) from my HTPC with Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 3 looks a bit washed out.

If need be I can take a few shots of the screen to show what I mean, but a few written examples:

Black bars on 2.35:1 movies are more of a grey, not a black. I don't expect the bars to be completely black, but there is a difference between playing a blu-ray on the HTPC versus the PS3.

When playing back Watchmen where Dr Manhattan is being intimate with Laurie the blue lighting looks washed out, almost like the color is stepping instead of grading.

Faces sometimes look the same way, almost as if it is a low bit picture.

Any ideas? My videocard is a Radeon 6570, and I am using the 11.6 drivers as anything higher causes a stutter.

Here is a sample of what I'm talking about:

This also happens when a character has a pale face.
