Re: What is optimized backlight

Re: What is optimized backlight

can we turn it off? it makes watching movies annoying, the brightness changes constantly and it is very annoying.

Re: What is optimized backlight

It's been a goddamn year, can we get closure on this issue?

 

The mods here think the content adaptive backlight is disabled. I had started a discussion with one of them, but i never got a reply. I am trying to find who was it, but I can't find it.

Anyone?!

 

They sure know how to help users here.

 

Ah, sorry, i forgot, this isn't a support forum, this is a place where users cry and moan to other users to no end.

 

All that sony does is explain what CABL is, remove the option to disable it and that's it.

 

Great job!
