    Hey guys,

    Just a quick question, on my ps4 ive got RGB set to limited and tv black level on low, but after playing around with my settings i set my black level to high on tv and left it on limited on my ps4.

    The great thing is about this is it cancels out the global dimming so no more annoying backlight turning on and off during credits of movies or scene changes. But im wondering by having both on high am i loosing out on quality? Ive lowered the brightness to 35 to get it close as possible to the low black level setting without loosing detail and it looks fine by my eyes, in fact in dark scenes i can notice detail more.

    I have the LG 55UF850v

    Any advice is appreciated :)

    You're probably seeing crushed blacks. The most accurate image usually does not look good to your eyes at first, but they adjust.
