I GOT!
« on: February 03, 2018, 07:14:18 PM »
I bought one of these...

Stuck it on the back of the tellybox and plugged it into a free USB port...

So it comes on when you switch the tellybox on and goes off when you switch it off...

Dramatically increases the contrast ratio (if you are watching in a fairly dark room) and is highly recommended...

Well worth six quid!  :thumbsup:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Ah but given  BM's advanced age his eyes are buggered so it probably works for him...  rubschin:

They don't shine in your face... Just produce a back-light to the screen....

Tellybox is wireless so apart from the mains cable and a HDMI from the DVD player this installation is marvellously clutter free...  cloud9:
