Wow, I can't spell today. Title should read: Does anyone else think the pillar box bars are not black enough? I got a new Samsung LN-T 4661 LCD TV. These new 2007 models have much better blacks. Now, when I watch SD programs (I don't streatch the image) I notice that the pillar box bars are not as black as my TV is capable of displaying. I can tell this because on some SD programs there is a very black bar about 3/8" wide (on my 46" TV) that is between the edge of the SD window and the pillar bars. That 3/8" strip is very black. If I adjust my TV by decreasing back light level and brightness I can get the somewhat black pillar bars to be as black as the 3/8" wide strip. Unfortunately this also crushes the blacks in the program material. I am using HDMI between the HR20-700 and the Sammy. Are there any adjustments on the HR20 to increase the black level. I already have the option set to black but it seems the HR20 should sender a blacker black (AKA blacker than black?). Does anyone else think we should request the black level of the pillar bars be increased? It really bugs me on SD when the pillar bars are kind of gray-black.
