I have no problems with dark scenes, blacks are excellent and all, balance is perfect. But any kind of light scene (like sky in the picture or bright window) and the image because very washed out, as if brightness being cranked up several notches. I can't get the balance right so that darker scenes look acceptably detailed and at the same time bright scenes look natural. If I turn down the brighness to make light scenes normal, the dark scenes become extremely dark and most of the details get lost.
Especially it's bad in 3D. Avatar looks spectacular in dark scenes (forest scene with those beasts), but downright VHS quality in any light scenes (running out of lab for the first time, flying above waterfalls etc).
Is there a setting I need to tweak for this? I tried gamma and offset but I can't find a setting that would make any difference sp I keep it at default.
I have a pretty dark room (only ceiling is white, walls are dark brown), and 1.3 Gain white screen. Throw distance is about 15ft.
