Hi all, can I ask what everyone has their in game brightness settings set to, and also the reference levels in the xbox 360 settings, i.e standard, intermediate, expanded?

Only, everytime I play skyrim i find a lot of caves and certain buildings are so dark, i can't see even with mage light spells and torches. I often have to set my tv to all the brightest settings to be able to see my way.

Just wondering if it's my tv, or the reference levels on the 360.

I have reference levels set to expanded (will change this tonight) and my in game brightness setting is one click away from the brightest option, and it still looks pretty dark.

I change my brightness all the time. Right now I have it cranked up all the way cause I got tired of casting light spells and torches. I usually have it about half way though. Don't know what my reference levels are set to.
I should go.

But won't that make daylight or well lighted rooms have that bleached out look ?
