    Was watching a Sky Feed last night on my new Samsung LCD in the bedroom (Wireless sender to composite in). There was a distinctive horizontal glow at the top & bottom of the screen, presumably the bright backlights behind the panel ? Dont see it on DVD's via my HTPC (via DVI).

    Is this common with LCD's ?

    Is mine faulty ?

    Can it be tweaked out ?

    :confused:

    This will not be caused by the backlight as you have already stated that the picture is evenly lit during DVD playback. This will probably be causes by by a combination of the wireless sender providing your image over composite! I hate to think what the picture quality is like.....Your LCD will be fine.

    It could still be the backlight. Some LCD TVs operate the backlight at a higher brightness in TV mode than in PC mode; this is evident by the different brightness (and lamp life) quoted in different modes. One example is the Sharp LL-171ME. Double check by plugging the Sky box directly to the TV.
