I would like to have it bright at day time but dimmed in the evening.
Something like 10am-6pm at 80% and 6pm to 10am at 30%.
Sometimes when i tap my Toon to wake it up at night I am getting blinded as all the lights are off in the room.

Would something like that be possible?
What comes closest is to use the Buienradar app. In the location settings screen you can set the brightness in dim which switches at sunrise/sunset.
In the past I used brightness 10 after sunset and brightness 30 during the day.
This works only properly on a Toon 1. On Toon 2 the builtin automatic brightness is usually ok.

But you talk about waking up the Toon... I don't think that brightness level is controlled by any app at the moment on a Toon 1.

I have a Toon 2. So als i just checked the Buienradar app setting doesn't work, as you said.

I haven't noticed any builtin brighness level. Is it a setting that i need to turn on? Because the brightnes is 50% all the time. 24/7.
My setting in Brighness are 50% Active. And 100% Dimmed.
Don't see anything in TSC about auto dimming too.

go to the Toon Menu, tab "Scherm"", press de edit button after "Helderheid". There you can set the option "Automatisch aanpassen aan omgeving".
Not sure this meets your needs but you can have a look

Then probably (for whatever unknown reason) you don't have this feature in your config file "/HCBv2/config/config_happ_scsync.xml":

Code: Select all

<feature>displayAutoBrightness</feature>
you can add the above between the "<features>" and "</features>" tags
