Anybody have Bias Lighting on the back of their TV for movie viewing? How effective is it and does it add to the ambiance of movie viewing? How far from the edge have you mounted it? Worth the minor investment to you?
I have one behind my Sony 75XBR X940E. I only turn it on when watching movies. It sure adds ambiance and to a minimum level reduces eyestrain caused by differences in pic brightness when watching movies in a dark room. It also gives the effect of better contrast.
I do not have bias lighting around the back of TV itself, but I do have back lighting above and behind the TV. My TV is on a 3/4 wall so I added multi-color dimmable LED lighting above and behind the TV. I do notice it to be more comfortable and easier on the eyes to watch movies with some type of back lighting.

I use a 6500K color temperature CFL behind the display, in an up-light fixture positioned about 1/3 the distance from the bottom edge. It's on a triggered outlet that comes on when the pre-pro comes on.

I have one and don't use it much after getting the OLED. it affects HDR pops

Hmm, great question. I use negative light bias. Called it is dark. That is just me. Your mileage and lighting may vary of course. I have seen some systems do well with bias lighting, but for me, it is interesting but I am in the dark on why I would like it.
You can't be brave to succeed unless you are not afraid to fail.
We have an OLED and think it adds to the room and picture view ability! Glad I made the in vestment in time and money. This unit is dimmable, I’m not familiar with other manufacturers. May add it to the Mrs HT TV,
