No, you are fundamentally wrong about the issue.
Many people only
have a problem when there is a small amount of static content on the screen, even thought he rest of the image is changing significantly (live sport, gaming). Watch the video of God of War (the first one, not the second one - edit: this one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT5EetM7Zeo
). There is no way that the image has a 'static APL', yet it dims hyper aggressively.
That is simply not right. I can demonstrate that on my set because:
1. Watching sport, the image dims after 1 minute of the score remaining static
2. If the score goes away (e.g. to show some stats), even though the rest of the image remains the same, the dimming goes away
3. Once the score comes back, the dimming returns after a minute
4. So long as the score is there, it doesn't matter how much the rest of the image changes, the dimming remains
So, it's not "APL" or "ASBL". It cannot be working on the 'average' of what's on the screen (per your link earlier in the thread to the LG issue), because dimming does
occur even though 95%+ of the content is changing rapidly, and dimming does not
occur when the 5% which is static does change. Dimming also does not
occur even though the image is identical save for the static element being removed.
It's possible that there are multiple problems. But if you read through the thread you'll see many people talking about a small static component of an otherwise rapidly moving screen.
For some reason you are assuming the problem Sony has introduced with the A1 is the same as the problems affecting LG. I'm not sure why you would assume that. Do you have any evidence that the software is related in any way, let alone has the same algorithms for dimming?
But please, post high handed and aggressive comments if it makes you feel better. I understand that forums about TVs have a strong emotional resonance for some people.
