Windows 7: NVIDIA Screen Brightness vs Video Brightness

NVIDIA Screen Brightness vs Video Brightness

Hey guys, great forums

I am currently running Windows 7 RC1 and have noticed a behavioral change from XP which I would love to change.

In the NVIDIA control panel, there are 2 sets of settings for brightness:
1) Desktop color settings
2) Video color settings

In Windows XP, these would be completely independent. Thus for example, I could have my desktop dark while the videos could be bright and vivid.

Thus in XP:

Desktop Brightness = Desktop color settings
Video Brightness = Video color settings

In Windows 7, the OS only behaves this way when using Aero Basic. If I'm using the full Aero interface, I get the following behavior:

Desktop Brightness = Desktop color settings
Video Brightness = Desktop color settings + Video color settings

I would really love to have these control act independently on the full Aero interface. Is this possible? NVIDIA settings can obviously still distinguish the video because the video color settings still only apply to video, so I'm not sure why it behaves this way.

Thanks a lot for your help
