Hi,
Can anybody explain how the SB3 decides what brightness to go to when the sleep timer runs out? Obviously I'd like it dim, but sporadically it shows up as bright. Here's my guess:
Setting when on or off: 4 (required to see it during daylight)
Setting when idle: 1
Adjust automatically: yes (so should go dim when on or off, if I'm not pressing buttons, right?)

Except what I'll do is hit the Brightness button on the remote, instead of something else, which seems to override the above settings. So when I hit the sleep button, once the timer runs out, it goes back to the manual setting I entered.
I need to learn to just hit Now Playing or something, don't I?
Thanks for enlightening me!
Nick

The sleep function turns the player into 'off' mode, which will then
use the brightness setting for when the player is off. Note that if
you are pressing the brightness button at any time, then you are
changing the server setting for the current mode that you are in at
that time.

Thanks kdf - its as simple as that! Therefore, keep your fingers off the brightness button, Nick!
Or even better, use the AutoDim (AutoDisplay?) plugin to automatically dim it after bedtime, no matter what I've been pushing.......
Much appreciated!
