I've had my RPTV for a week now, and I find my eyes some what fatigued when watching in pure darkness. I have recessed lighting in the room, and I have dimmed the lights.. so that just a little light is available and seems to help. I'm looking for other suggestions. I did notice that when a door was opened from another room to my right, and light shined through that seemed to help. Should I be watching my RPTV in a total dark room?

Get the AVIA DVD and check your settings, contrast or brightness might be off. Since the settings are done in a dark room.

Also the backlight should be close to D65 or 6500K, which is similar to daylight.

RPTV's should be watched with back lighting ... preferably 6500K back lighting. Illumination of about 10 to 20% of what a 100 ire window box out puts.


usually a 18 inch fl bulb is more than enough.


Also make sure the contrast is in the 30 to 40% range and no higher ...


Regards

So you place the light, behind your RPTV? Or behind the viewer and shining towards the TV?

I have had that problem in the past. I put a light with a dimmer beside or behind ( or even a small desk lamp on top pointed at the wall behind the tv).


Just a dim light makes a big difference in your comfort watching the tv.
