I ask this because I was at a friends house recently who had a dvd playing on his Toshiba crt tv and when he stopped the movie and the screen was blank, I saw what was very obviously VB! His brightness settings are somewhat higher than I am used to but it got me thinking, that there must be some other explanation. Incompatible gamma settings between deck and display perhaps? I dont presume to know much about these things but there they were, on a tv!!
