    Recently I tried using a LCD television to watch a movie off my MBP, while the display was easy to format and connect, the brightness was very low. I tried to brighten the TV by switching things like the resolution and colour, and after every alteration, the screen would brighten to regular brightness quickly and then turn dark again.

    I put it down to being the TV, but the next day after the same thing happening with a projector I new it must be my MBP.

    Both times I connected with my DVI cord and used the display settings in system preferences.

    Why is this happening?:confused:

    buuuump+update!

    I've tried another TV, a 50" plasma, and it works great! Though it's a far more advanced TV in it's programing.

    Shades would be the problem, trust me, I've seen it firsthand.

    I've taken care of Shades.

    He won't be troubling me anymore. Or anyone else.
