  • Patent number: 10755672
    Abstract: A playback device is configured to be connected to a display device. The playback device includes a communication component and a controller. The communication component communicates with the display device. The controller acquires setting information indicating a current setting of a brightness range in the display device from the display device via the communication component. While a specific brightness range has not been set in the display device, the controller transmits information related to a setting change to the specific brightness range via the communication component to the display device based on correspondence information indicating a correspondence relationship between the display device and the brightness range that is settable in the display device.
