The room is not that bright , I would say about 1/2 to 2/3 as bright as an office when blinds drawn when sun shines directly in for a couple hours but normally during day 1/2 as bright as office,. The other point is the blues are really strong and does that cause darkness.. thanks eveyrbody for suggestions, keep them coming.....sammy
It won't get brighter, Brightness affects the darker end of the signal , black levels and shadows will become elevated if the brightness aka black level is set too high. The opposite is true if the brightness setting is set to low.
The picture or contrast setting is what affects your "brightness" overall light output of the picture. The brightness control is not correctly named it should be called, black level. Hope that clears the confusion. Wish they would change this ....manufacturer's are you listening..!!
