If they do, I just found this. Its meant to correct the colours or something. This washed out look doesnt affect WMP, (when you play videos), only Media Center. It seems to work with ATI and Nvidia video cards.

Dont know if it works in Vista MCE tho

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Debug\ehPresenter.dll]

"NominalRange"=dword:1



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Debug\ehPresenter.dll]

"BoundByNativeSize"=dword:0


Just copy the above and paste it into notepad, then save it as a reg file. Remember to change save as type to all files first. Then right mouse on it / select merge. So it goes into the registry. It may or may not fix washed out colours, if you use a tuner as well

I havent either. I dont use it all the time. But according to most sites this undocumented reg hack fixes black in video. Which must look a a bit pale, when watching vids in MCE. This hack makes black look like black
