Again - sorry if this has come up before, cannot find anything. Upgraded to latest firmware yesterday for non series link 5800 (original 5800) - now have TF-NPT 5.13.65T. Everything is great except for my OSD Transparency. Although I have set it to 50% all the screens are so dim we can hardly read the info. It use to be the case that the overlay screens were very visible. I would say that if the overlay screens were 100% before then they are about 40% now - a dramatic difference. In System Settings all I can do is toggle between 0% and 50% - none of these are any good in terms of reading 'what's on the screen'. Is it possible to get my old transparency back?

Repeatedly press the > button and the setting will go 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 ,40, 50 and then 0%

If you are at 0 and press < it goes to 50 and then if you press the > it will go back to 0, which i think you must be doing.

You probably want a low number, say 5 or 10.

5% is the default, and I've never felt the need to change it - try starting there.

I'd agree that at 50% it's virtually unreadable. For solid background and text, you want a transparency of 0%, not 100% (which would be complete transparent = invisible).
