I think I can see why you are getting the same brighntess. LOL. I am as confused as ever. No, really: I am guessing you are using one box (the E86) for DirecTV SD, and for OTA HD. When you switch to CBS -SD on DirecTV, are you staying on the same Mitsu input (I'm guessing you are using the DTV input for the OTA HD), or are you switching to another TV input (like S-Video)? In my case, I am using two separate boxes: the TW digial cable box through Mitsu S-Video for locals and all the other digital cable channels, and the E86 for OTA HD through the Mitsu "DTV" input.
Anyway, are all broadcasts supposed to use SMPTE-compliant stuff? (I think that's what it's called: the people on the S&V HTT DVD said that the color pattern was made by SMPTE). Well I used those supposedly standard patterns on all my inputs, but something is cookie, because HD feeds are much darker than SD.
Guys, if you have any ideas, please let me know. This is making me crazy.
Ppotter, I will look at The Practice sunday night. thanks.
