Hi!
I have 2 connections from the video card: one VGA to the computer monitor and the other to the TV, HDMI.The monitor looks just fine, but when I want to watch a movie I change the output from the display settings. The problem is that the movies are too dark; I barely can see what's happening in a darker scene. I tried to change the color range from full to limited, but it makes no difference. I can see the difference between them only when using the monitor. Can anybody help me?
Thanks in advance!

Oh, I don't know if it helps but I use win10

Are you using Night Light or f.lux, and watching after dark?

 

If so, turn one or the other off "for the duration" of the movie.

HDMI is a digital format meaning the signals don't get stronger (higher voltage) and generally you'd need to adjust the brightness on the TV itself to solve your problem.
