Thanks, that's pretty sad if it's backlight interference when we have the TV set to a lower light lower energy movie mode. The remote/base unit should be made better than that.
It's not your remote, it's your television.
Consider the following
- your TV uses fluorescent lighting instead of LEDs
- fl. lights can't actually be dimmed since they are dependent on a transformer sending a consistent and high voltage. LEDs and heat based lights can be dimmed via voltage reduction.
- your TV dims the image by "cycling" the light. In essence it blinks rapidly and your eye perceives this as dimmer. This not only causes ambient interference it also shortens the life of the lighting and has been linked in some less than stellar studies with eyestrain and headaches. The CFLs you see in the store that are labeled as dimmable do the same thing as far as I know.
- you really aren't saving any power because these lights are very efficient already and work best under normal consistent load
Turn the backlight to full and adjust the picture from there. Trust me, it'll look better and perform better.
