    Blooming It's only seen in CRTs, If your XBR set has a LCD panel you won't get any blooming ever, there are another tests (in avia disc) to adjust white level on such displays.[​IMG]

    Most decent CRT sets today do not bloom, period.

    Joe Kane has written articles in WSR Magazine suggesting that Contrast on a CRT set is best set (assuming that it does not bloom) by looking closely for a slight color change in the top white panel of the Pluge. I think (but will not swear to it) that the panel will go slightly yellow when the set is overdriven.

    I have never observed this, personally, but trust that it is true.

    I usually use Needle Pulses+Steps to set contrast, looking for a setting that results in minimal line bending of the black line that goes through the white section.

    Blacklevel, Color, Tint, and Sharpness is very easy to set with any of the discs in question.
