Has anyone else have any issue with the letterbox bars not being the deepest black that can be displayed on your set?
I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but this is clearly the case. The one example I use that's undeniable is on the Samsara blu ray, the dark city scene (I believe it's 10) where there is pure blackness that rides right up to the letterbox bars. Pausing this and seeing the letterbox bars next to the night scene, the black from the scene is clearly darker than the letterbox bars. I was led to believe the bars should be the blackest your set can go.
I use a Sony S5100 Blu Ray player and an LG PA6500 plasma, which I tweaked to get better blacks.
Has anyone else run into this?
Is there a way to remedy it?
