Thanks for the reply, I had presumed the auto dimming was obvious otherwise there would not be so many complaints. Thanks for confirming it.
I never noticed any fluctuation, that is after I turned off some of the auto functions. I thought maybe the 6150 Sam's Club version left out this "feature".
As my comment in the above thread mentions the screen brightness changes instantly when the somewhat large white DVR status bar appears & disappears. So I'm not sure if the 6150 series has or uses the same auto dimming as other models.
I've been adjusting the Movie mode settings and they don't give the same results as the Standard mode. IOW color 45 in Movie is similar to color 35 in Standard. And I have to use a higher backlight setting in Movie to get the same results as I get in Standard. But I've got the 2 modes matching each other pretty closely & either one looks pretty good to me.
