        It's a common trait with the new 2.x FW that the contrast
settings have changed significantly.  I set mine for "white on black" and
find also that 36-40% is what I find best looking.  I have not
experienced the problem with selecting the options that you mentioned. 
It was difficult to see the options when I first load a FW level because
the contrast setting is not one that is retained, and the default is
inadequate for good viewing.  Hope this helps.

        73,  Duane
