Gary, you are great. If you post solution shortly, you are our hero!
Little OT: I know you really work for this community, and I really don´t want to complain, but could you look, or answer one more issue many people have?
Screen brighteness is automatically adjusted based on what it is displaying. When there is a scene with more light, brighteness goes up, when darker scene, brighteness goes down. Much like dynamic contrast works. Important thing is, this is WITHOUT auto brighteness. (turned off).
Probably DIDIM technology is cousing this effect. It is supposed to dynamically save power by adjusting backlight and image, but for now it just causes very noticeable brighteness changes which are very distracting while watching videos or playing games.
Since we can observer different "levels" in which this technology steps in, based on power mode selected, it seems its software-adjustable, or at least it can be calibrated.
So, please on behalf of many people which are annoyed by this very obvious effect, could any upcomming update has this feature either tuned, or optional?
