Would someone with a setup similar to mine try these settings? I can't believe the picture I'm getting for all these zeroes. Would this be some sort of great (lucky) synergy? Please feel free to blast this out of the water, you experts.

Whoa...you sure you want to reduce the gamma that much? Did you kill your shadow details?


What were your original settings, without the filter?

Original settings as posted by someone(forgot who) who recently posted settings for Cinema 2- Philips DVD settings the same.

Contrast -1

Brightness +4

Color 0

Tint +2

Color Temp +1

White gamma 0

Black gamma -3


Very good at first, until the Hypercube2 DVD. Material contains color and lots of gray tones which crossed over too much towards the green and could not be adjusted out because it was not linear. The black gamma at -2 just makes max black(dark gray actually)so I'm not missing any shadow detail. 0 contrast seems to have an overall effect of also creating more separation in the shadows keeping them in visual(seeable) range.


Regards,

Bob
