Thanks. As an aside, have you updated to latest Theatre Optimizer firmware yet, and if so, have you noticed a gamma shift with the HDR on some black-and-white movies? I leave mine set to the Middle level for most films, though I occasionally adjust it to the High setting for some particularly dark films (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home being a case in point). However, with black-and-white films, when set to Mid, I'm seeing the slightest pinkish cast sometimes, especially around light sources. When I switch to High, it goes away. Previous iterations of their firmware didn't do that regardless of what level that the tone mapping was set to. I don't have Citizen Kane yet, but I just tried out Anatomy of a Murder, and it had that problem. With It's a Wonderful Life, the effect was strong enough that it bordered on looking like it was sepia toned. On High, it looks fine. Didn't change anything with my calibration when I updated the firmware, but regardless, there shouldn't be a gamma shift between levels like that.Yes. I don’t believe the film benefitted from the technology, especially since it’s all second and fourth generation.
