Smart tv problems

One of the main differences between plasma and led tv's was the reflection seen in the former which could be distracting but some of the modern led tv are having the same problem as the plasma ones.

The adverts for some modern tv emphasize how black really will be black when viewing programs but the problem is films and series that include scenes in the dark appear so dark it's almost impossible to see anything.....and no there is no way to adjust this type of setting.

So for once the adverts are correct, black really is black !

That kind of series, is supposed to give it "realism".... however.. it is probably down to the skimping on the production costs. keeping the use of electric, and using less floodlighting to save money... an advantage of this is that they don`t need to spend so much time money and effort on the actual scenery ... scene set ... or clothing for the actors..

Re: Smart tv problems

It's bad enough missing half the dialogue, now we can't see half the film !

Yes I have a 150 W sound bar but whispering and muttering it can't decode....

I really am feeling old these days.
