Could it be that we are all getting the same picture but see it differently? I, too, could adjust my set to compensate for it, but it really makes my 510 too bright. I have noticed that if the sceen being shown is in bright colors, the picture looks fine. It is only when the amount of "dark" colors starts to outnumber the bright colors, then the whole screen gets darker. It's like and outside in daylight sceen is fine, but indoors, say like the boathouse sceeen with Michael and Connie from the GodfatherII, it is almost unwatchable. Someone mentioned when the 811 first came out it was a Black Level thing or something. I just wish they would fix it.
