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".
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?
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!
