At the risk of sounding too touchy-feely, I wanted to thank all of those who contribute to this forum. When I recently started visiting (as a neophyte), I learned about the default “torch mode” and have subsequently reduced the contrast (and made other adjustments) on my older 27” Panasonic. Just with these simple adjustments on this marginal television: - Colors are more lifelike with more discernible differences between colors - I can now really tell the difference between cable channels. Some appear too dark, while others appears really gorgeous. Watching the Oregon – Wisconsin game today showed some excellent colors. My wife has even commented. Again, thanks to all who contribute. Your advice and comments are really noticed.
