My 5005 has a very annoying problem where when recording, the color in dark scenes usually disappears, and I’m left staring at a gray background or gray face.
After reading around, I was thought to believe that this is from the “bad tv tuner” on the unit. Well, to test this I plugged in my other standalone dvd player and recorded about 30 seconds of a dark scene in one of the Harry Potter movies using the back red/white/yellow inputs and outputs. I played the clip back in both dvd players and my computer, and the backgrounds/cloaks were gray in most of the scene.
Playback of the original dvd showed color in those areas.
Now, this would lead me to the conclusion that the grayness isnt caused from the tv tuner, but occurs possibly during the encoding method…is there any way to tweak/fix this? I have the latest (0098, i believe ES5) firmware
