I'll look again just to make sure, there might have been a placebo effect...
I noticed the behavior in the kindle app. When reading white text on a black background the screen got brighter when there was a white chapter start image.

You are right, just placebo on my part, when duplicating the error case I noticed it in, the CABL is still there.
I really really wanted it to work though, that must count for something... :-/

I attach the images I used for comparison...

If only it worked that way lol. It's in the kernel but thus far no dev seems to have looked in to it.

From google I got cabl=content adaptive backlight and it is intended for changing backlight change.. But what is its advantage?? Is it battery saver or battery eater??

Was searching for a solution to this 'feature', especially on a sunny day it is very annoying. Could it be that is has something to do with the BRAVIA engine? Just a thought..
