For those who have calibrated their displays so that it is not too bright and not too dark, but just right....


1) what is your PICTURE(Contrast/White Level) setting?

2) what is your BRIGHTNESS(Black Level) setting?

3) do you watch in no, low, medium or bright room lighting?

4) TV?


Mine is something like:

1) Picture: 40%

2) Brightness: 50%

3) Lighting: low

4) Sony Wega XBR450


Mine is not just right yet, that's why I'm asking this question. AVIA leaves lots of room to fudge. I find that some scenes are too bright and some are too dark, like Dark City and TPM. I know I'm not supposed to see every dark detail, but it really looks to me that I'm not seeing enough detail in certain scenes like in TPM, when they go through the planet core for instance. And at the same time the bright scenes of the Naboo city aren't entirely easy on the eyes.

Are all these settings with the Velocity Scan Modulation on/off? The SVM has a lot do do with lightness or darkness of movie.
