I recently purchased a Panasonic BD35 Blu-ray player. Prior to getting my BD35, I'd used tv settings provided by a well known calibrator and regular of the forums (********). His settings were created using a PS3 as source. Via the SD version of Digital Video Essentials and a Xbox 360, I confirmed that his choice for the tv's brightness setting was spot on. However with these settings my BD35 crushes blacks and hence I've had to increase by tv's brightness setting by +1 (I my even increase it another +1). I found this all a bit surprising. I would of thought Blu-ray players essentially uncompressed the info on the disc and sent it to the tv. (By the way I have a 1080p display and hence my BD35 is not scaling the image.) Anyone know why black/brightness levels would be different for different model Blu-ray players?
