Screen on one device seems a lot dimmer than another

Post by jb2cool »

In our house we have 2 OSTC Plus computers, one running the sport firmware (my girlfriends) and one running the tech firmware (mine). I took them both on a dive at the weekend and the computer running the sport firmware seemed to be quite a lot dimmer than my computer.

After I got out I checked the settings and the settings on both of these are exactly the same.

Once I got home I went into the simulator on both but there they seemed to show the same brightness.

I’ll see if I can replicate this next time I go diving but was looking for any tips now, is there a hardware difference that might cause this? Mine is the newer computer.

Hi,

Firmware does matter, compare with "Use Ambient Sensor: No" settings.

Matthias, where is this setting? I’ve had a look for it and can’t seem to find it.

Hi,

See there : Main Menu/Settings/Display Settings/Brightness/Light Sensor.

Works with hwOS 3.18.

I don’t seem to have that setting on either on my devices.

Sorry, my links don’t work nicely to show the image, just click the link and it’ll pop up.
