    You can’t make 8560W display 300 nits as its panel is limited to 210nits no matter what dump file is written on the decoder board.

    yes yes yes, i'm know...
    8740w - I looked at the specifications of Dreamcolor in your 8740w, there are 210 nits .. it is unlikely to help ...I don't mind getting a 24c32 dump( thank ) but anyway - thanks.
    that is, the adjustment does not occur in two chips (25c32 and w25x32), but only at the level of the STDP 8028 chip? sad =(

    By the way, in addition to two HDDs of 2 terabytes, do you have 2 more SSDs, the first is mSATA and the second is installed where? where was the DVD drive before or where? I have a question about this - speed on mSATA and other SSD 2.5 is not cut?

    I have one 512GB system SSD, 1TB mSata, 2TB HDD in the second HDD bay, one 2TB on the place of the DVD optical bay and one 2TB in the advanced docking station.
    The speed of mSata, optical bay and advanced docking station is limited to SATA II whereas the two main HDD’s bays are SATA III.

    Screen brightness is determined by the specific LED strip used for the backlight. For the LP171WU8-SLB1 that happens to be 210 cm/m². A way around that would to to replace the strip with one that has brighter leds. However, the Dreamcolors use RGB leds rather than white leds, such as this example. Even if you can find a compatible one then replacing them is still a pain, but it is a theoretical possibility.

    There might be another way out. The SLB1 backlight connector suggests there's two possible methods to drive brightness control:

    [​IMG]

    The description is a bit ambiguous; do they mean you can drive the pwm signal by sending either pwm or a stepless voltage difference (0-3.3V) or do they mean you can drive the panel either with pwm or directly by voltage control?

    Fans are similar; they're either 4/5-pin (pwm) or 3-pin (voltage). But even the 3-pin fans usually have a pwm option on their pcb, it's just that it doesn't have a wire soldered to it. Voltage control was how all panel backlights used to be controlled, pwm being a later introduction.

    You could find out by cutting the pin #18 wire and hooking it up to a small 0-5V buck converter such as those used for small diy fans. With a bit of luck it will accept >3.3V and it'd permit 'overclocking' the RGB led strip. Backlight longevity is limited by the amount of light it's putting out, so expect a somewhat diminished lifetime in return.

    Hello!
    Interesting topic! My 8560w DC2 can't go higher 210nits and I'm able to see PWM backlight at 100% brightness. It seems LCD backlight is limited. I also have Dell M6700 with Premiercolor display and it is so much brighter with no visible PWM at 100%.
    I also tried flashing dump from my comrade Love is 8770w with no result.
    Here is my HP 8560w RGB converter dumps from both flash chip 25L32 and EEPROM 24C32 - GDrive
