I have only done the 9point convergence and calabrated the TV with Video Essentials, and DVDs look great and probably will look even better when I do the 56 point convergence, but Man, I can hardly even see network TV (esspecially NBC) because it is so dark. I really do not want to change the settings in contrast, because I am so scared of burnin. I also use the Xbox on the TV which is another big reason for me to be scared to up the contrast for TV viewing. I now hate even watching any TV show that has a logo in the bottom right hand side. (even the see through ones I don't like. OK, Am I being over the edge here? Would it be OK to view normal Cable with a littel higher contrast setting? I ust love the way the DVDs look, but Watching a show like frinds is almost painful, becuase it is so dark. I even watch it with the lights off and the backlight on for less eye strain, but still too dark. And on top of all of it watching a VHS tape of recorded cable is almost unbareable. Please tell me it would be ok every now and then to brighten it up a bit when watching cable? Or let me know some way to fix my problem. Thanks!
