Note in the above table that 0 means that I let the settings remain in the middle (Bang & Olufsen don't use numbers in their menus). The contrast value of -4 means that I moved the level four stops to the left.
By saying that you moved the value 4 stops to the left, what do you mean by "stops"? The B&O menu has a dotted line for each setting, where you can move the position of the settings marker or cursor. Do the settings mean that you moved the contrast level 4 "markers" (visible steps) to the left, or that you simply clicked on the remote 4 times to the left?
The graphic indicator (marker) in the adjustments does not move a full stop (visible step) each time the remote key is pressed, hence my question:
Does your advice mean simply 4 remote clicks or 4 visible steps (markers) to the left?
Yeah I see your point. Each step has more clicks to it than just one. It's kinda strange but what I mean is that you should move it four clicks to the left with the remote. Not four "markers".
What are your initial impressions with the BeoVision 10 yourself?
Thanks for your answer, I ended up adjusting the contrast 4 clicks to the left.
As for my initial impressions, BV10 is truly a piece of art. Picture is fantastic, sound is very good for a slim TV, although I will be adding a subwoofer to the setup.
My only slight disappointment is the backlight: it is not even. My BeoVision 10 exhibits clouding that is quite visible in darker viewing conditions, when the picture completely black or almost completely black (during the end credits of a movie, for example). One lighter area at the top part of the screen (a blotch) is most annoyingly visible.
A friend of mine also got a BV10 recently, and his backlight exhibits similar un-evenness: he has two lighter spots on the screen.
I am hesitant to have the screen serviced, because I might end up with a panel that is even worse. Also, any local B&O service cannot calibrate a new panel to the most optimal settings (there's always little variation between panels), because they lack the instruments used at the factory.
I am hoping that the un-evenness will heal with time; this has been the case with one BV10 owner that I know of.
Hence, to minimize the visibility of the lighter area, I set the backlight 3 clicks lower, which helped a bit, without making the picture too dark.
The backlight looks perfect in daylight; the clouding is only visible in the evening at dimmer lighting conditions.
This issue aside, I am very happy with the TV! Superb depth and colors in the picture!
