View Full Version : Video too dark. Overlay controls lousy

I tend to have my monitor quite dark, well it's just how i like it but it isn't bright enough for video. Which tends to be staggeringly dark.

I received an XFX Geforce 6600GT for christmas.

It's replacing a Geforce 4200 Ti on which I had the video overlay brightness/contrast set just right, no problems at all and perfectly well balanced video always.

But on my new 6600GT the video overlay controls make pety little difference. Basically they're useless.

In fact, they don't even work on most media players. The only app they seem to affect is BSPlayer when it is set to "Mode 2" for playback.

What Gives? What have nVidia done???

I suggest you set the brightness/contrast levels in the application you use to play the video. You don't have to use the nvidia driver to do it. If you do, you need to find yourself another app.
