Why are they so much darker than their DVD counterparts? I mean the lighting. I was just watching the last Potter movie, and some scenes were so dark I could barely see what was going on, but the DVD copy that came with it doesn't have that problem at all.

Have you properly adjusted the picture on your monitor?

Yeah, but the adjustments I make to the tv don't seem to translate to blu ray playback

It has to do with settings and transfers. They had a problem supposedly with the Dracula transfer where they changed the collor and lighting levels in some scenes. Nothing to do with fidelity and just a matter of the mastering.

You could always play with the output settings of your blu-ray player and make sure it's outputting it properly. Get a test disc and adjust the levels.
