    I got a new Sanyo with the Guardian profanity filter thing on it for my kids to use...otherwise I use my Pioneer dv-45a. Just for the record. haha [​IMG]

    Anyways, with this Sanyo I've had to juice the brightness and picture levels are way up for the picture to look decent. I use the S&V Video Tune-Up thing to calibrate it to the right place, but I'm just concerned that my TV is suffering because of it. With my Pioneer and my Sony, my brightness and picture are set at 20 units less than with the Sanyo.

    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    If a particular DVD player delivers an unusually dark signal, goosing the TV won't hurt. Just remember to turn the contrast back down when viewing something else.

    It is the absolute brightness level coming from the phosphors, more correctly the strength of the electron beams, not the numeric setting of the control, that affects phosphor wear (burn).
