    LCD too bright - No dim pot

    I know this is probably the opposite of the usual problems we hear in regards to LCDs and their respective backlights but I am in need of a solution. I have a planar screen that is just blinding at night. It illuminates the whole vehicle. 1000 nits with no dim pot. Makes me sad.

    Now when I tested it out I used my desktop PC and through the ATI radeon tools I could drop the brightness and contrast down to make it look somewhat reasonable. Is there a way to make a button/macro (not sure the correct terminology) that would eliminate the need to go thru the several steps it takes to get into the video tools? I used search and tried strings like "LCD too bright" but I still haven't come up with an answer.

    edit: also would like to know if the EPIA m-10000 board's video has the ability to drop brightness and contrast via the software?

    If anyone has some input that would be much appreciated. TIA!

    Well I know some front-ends (I use centrafuse) can modify the gamma settings with one button (night/day setting)... might be useful for you.

    also you could try ol33l's GammaControl to automatically change the gamma settings based on time of day/sunrise/sunset.
