On firing up my new HK DVD 22, I noticed that the contrast in the dark areas seemed quite poor: blacks looked black with little colour variation. Although using the built in test card didn't make much difference, I put this down to imprecise calibration and decided to use my NTSC (player is set for NTSC output) Digital Video Essentials calibration disk. On the very first pluge pattern - for setting black levels using brightness - I can see what the problem is. The pluge has a grayscale in the middle with three bands either side on a black background. Unfortunately I can only see two bands - the below black has apparently been clipped by the DVD player. The narrator seems to suggest this is undesirable as it doesn't adhere to video standards, however he goes on to say that calibration can be continued... As I have a seven day return option (and only tomorrow off from work), this leaves me wondering whether I want to keep this unit. Is this an undesirable flaw or is it quite common and will have no impact on my viewing experience (on my old 565 I definately saw all three stripes and preferred the fact that there was a lot of depth to blacks)? Could it even be a faulty unit? Help would be appreciated as I'm pretty lost.
