    Anybody here try that?

    It sounds cool as heck but does it actually work? I haven't tried. I'm looking for real life users opinions.

    Philips were pushing that a few years ago - don't know whether they still are (checks their web page: seems they are).

    I've never seen it used in real life though. I always wondered whether it would be a distraction in practice, but it wouldn't work with my room layout anyway.

    I haven’t tried it.
    Heck, I ain’t even heard of it.
    Care to explain?

    Coloured lights on the back of the TV that project onto the wall behind it. The colours are usually shown as changing to match/complementing the image on the screen (so different colours in different places around the set, changing as the image changes).

    Philips, who are big on it, seem to promote it as enhancing the experience (it's usually shown with a white or pale wall behind the set in a semi-dark room, so it looks like the picture spreading out - which looks cool but, as I say, is not how my living room is arranged). There are 3rd party add-ons available, but I think Philips are the only people who integrate it with their sets.

    I've seen one seller of a cheap 3rd-party add-on "mood lighting" claim it reduces eye strain, but they cited no evidence to support that claim (which means I did not take it seriously).
