There is a noticeable increase in the use of bright white backgrounds on tv,
especially in advertising. Probably hoping to make their product stand out
and hit you in the eye! My LCD tv doesn't buzz, but the brightness is very
glarey and annoying. Following your advice, I have changed the picture settings
from Vivid to Normal, then increased the contrast slightly, to compensate for
the darker picture. It takes only a few minutes to get used to and is so much
easier on the eyes. I should explain, I've always preferred a bright, high
contrast picture, until these snow-blinding ads began! Cheers.
