    I did a substantial search for this issue and wasn't able to find a clear solution, so I'm hoping someone on here can help!

    I use my macbook pro to watch downloaded shows and netflix.

    The issue I'm having is that everything looks so dark on my television (Sony Bravia). At first I just assumed it was the shows I was watching, but after playing the same show through the mac then on the WiiU Netflix app, I've confirmed it's not displaying correctly. I've played around with the display settings on the mac itself, but it doesn't affect the display on the tv at all.

    It seems to be a television setting, but I thought I'd ask here in case someone else is using the same set up for media. We've tried playing around with the picture settings on the Bravia, but that doesn't seem to make a big difference.

    The macbook is first connected through a Denon receiver, so perhaps it could be a setting on that as well?

    Any ideas?

    I'd try and look for this setting on your TV:
