    I have noticed on my when I watch DVDs on my 2 year old JVC-M555BK DVD player that the dark scenes are really dark. I have to turn the brightness up on my TV (Panasonic 32" Tau) all the way. Is this typical of older DVD players or could this be problem with my TV? I don't have the problem when watching regular TV. Is it time to upgrade my DVD player? Watching the Godfather the other night, during some scenes I could only see the faces on the screen and no other detail.

    The Godfather movies are supposed to be dark, but I would recommend using Avia or Video Essentials to find the optimal black level (brightness) for your TV. Trust me, it makes all of the difference.
