Difference between ambilight modes?

Do you guys have any tips for me with my Ambilight problem? Maybe my TV is just not functioning correctly?
Hi,
It's how Ambilight works. I have 7304, and 7101 - on both when is black picture, then LEDs dimms but not off completly. I have tried to display 100% black picture and the same situation. In the past I have contact with Philips and they confirm that this behaviour is correct.

Philips has a Tutorial Video (in German) where they say that the Ambilight shuts off completely when black content is displayed... So I assume this was just a lie to make people buy their stuff... Very sad. Last Phillips product for me!

Well it says you have to set it to game in order to not light up, once the screen is black that the amilight stays off. That works most of the times

Doesn't work for me. In game mode it's the same as in natural, so with black content a white halo remains and the LEDs don't shut off completely as the video suggests.

Have to double check. Maybe it relates also to the shut off settings, like if the light turns off instead or slowly...

Don't think so. He explaines the different Ambilight modes. And he explicitly talks about game mode and that the LEDs go out completely with black content.

I like 'Natural', precisely because it switches off in the darker areas. If the idea is to make your screen feel slightly larger, then it's really the best option.

Worth also flagging up another option that's a little bit buried but useful for some people - setting the wall colour. My TV is mounted on a dark blue wall and so ensuring the Amblight knows that means it adjusts the colours to account for the different colour surface. It's by no means perfect and when a white light is called for, there's obviously nothing it can do, but every little helps.
