    I was just watching 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' on DVD. I had all of my lights out as usual. I got up to get something to drink and I noticed that when I turned the lights on, the picture looked a lot better. The appearance of artifacts was greatly reduced. I'd say on the order of 60% or more.

    What does this mean? Should I watch movies with the lights on, or get some kind of other light source in my room? Should I recalibrate my tv with the new light source on?

    If you have anything other than front projection, you do need some room light. Should be 10% as bright as the screen. If you can read by it, it's too bright. Best place is behind the TV so there's no glare on the screen. Color temperature 6500K. And, yes, you do need to adjust the TV with the room lit as it will be watched.
