I created a custom picture setting with a dark screen. I use the TV remote (not Cox) to select that pre-set dark screen setting. I leave the TV on that setting most of the time since I normally only use that TV at night.
As though you were "muting" the TV screen? i see the Background Darkness Levels in Contour, but how do you launch Contour into a dark background with a TV remote?
That TV is connected to a mini-box. The TV remote (not Cox) has a button to select different pre-sets. The custom pre-set I select has brightness and contrast levels set to dark, but not totally black. The screen is dim, but light enough to select my desired channel. I also use the TV remote to set the sleep timer.
