HDMI Way too bright!

Hi,

My HDMI output on my computer is way too bright, hurts your eyes bright. Blacks become grey, and greys get even lighter.

I have a AMD R7770 Card, and have access to Catalyst Control Panel. My monitor is a ViewSonic VX2703.

From reading around, I see that a lot of people solved this issue by changing the color format from RGB to YCrCb. Well YCrBc was already enabled.

As far as the monitor settings, I have played with those too, even done a reset. This also happens with my Samsung monitor on the same PC.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Would it be natural, out of the box to reset the brightness in CCC for that monitor down? That did the trick, but wondering why I had to do this out of the box.

without knowing all details, it's impossible to answer that.
in general, it looks like the automatic system detection does not work properly

no - no setting; it is what the hardware/software does when it sees an unknown device : it identifies it, loads drivers - then software for it

Does installing the monitor drivers help? I didn't do that.
