After running a few movies to test different scenes, the whites of the movie are just too bright. I have reduced the brightness through PowerDVD and the projector. Nothing seems to bring it down. The projector is an Infocus LP340B and I am using PowerDVD ver 4 on an HTPC. Is anyone familiar with other setting or filters I might be able to try?

The "contrast" control reduces white level, "brightness" controls black level.

You could also try adding an ND2 (neutral density 2) filter. I don't know what size is appropriate for your projector, but make sure to get a multicoated one. People on the forum seem to like Hoya for some reason. :)

Great. Thanks for the info. Is there a site I could order the filter from?

I had the LP350 for a while and sent it back because of the hot whites. Too bad, because the 340/350 projectors are otherwise excellent products. When I bought mine, two years ago, there wasn't nearly as much forum info on how to tame hot whites or control blooming.

I could eliminate the hot whites by fiddling with contrast and brightness, but at the expense of shadow detail.

Try the filter approach. It might help. Good luck with your quest.
