Quick question.

I recently changed my original lamp in my 5020 after 1600hrs. Replacing the lamp was no sweat. I've since put about 150hrs on the new lamp.

When I ran my calibration for Black levels and contrast (in THX mode), I found I had to crank the contrast down to -16!

After all was said and done, Brightness is set to +2 and Contrast to -16 and the picture looks great. The numbers shocked me, though.

I have a COMPLETELY dark room and an SI 115" ZeroEdge screen -2.4 gain. Oppo 103D-BD player into a Marantz AV7702 to the Epson. No processor modifications.

Anyone else have a similar experience?
Should I put a few more hours on the lamp?
Should I not worry and just enjoy the nice picture?
