Default improving video brightness?

Hi,

I just bought a new G Pad yesterday and am really enjoying it, except for the video playback. As others have mentioned, the display becomes too dim and dark scenes are hard to watch. It pretty much ruins the whole experience of having a 1080p tablet.

I tried the screen adjuster app mentioned in another thread and that didn't do much for me. I also noticed when using the video app, when I would back out of a movie, just before the picture went away it would become very bright for a second. That makes me think there's something holding it back.

I was wondering if anyone found any solutions to this. I also do not want to root the device.
