Re: NTLK NTLK: Auto Contrast Woes

Periodically I go into the midday sun too and have an erratic and
uncontrollable contrast problem. I put my Newt in the fridge for a couple
minutes and all is well. With AutoLCD it seems a big problem to adjust the
contrast at the same time AutoLCD is trying to cope with the heat of the
direct sun. Outside of the direct sun tho, AutoLCD has been a great asset.
Don't know about Auto Contrast but maybe my experience is of some help --
remember these apps are using ambient temp not available light to make
their corrections.
