Disabling the screen dimming on an LG LB5800 TV

I recently purchased an LG LED TV (Model no 47LB5800-UG) and whilst watching action movies or TV shows that tend to switch between scenes with varying levels of illumination, I noticed a curious screen dimming effect – the brightness/contrast levels dropped noticeably – so much so that I could hardly see the characters’ faces in some scenes.
To disable this stupid dimming effect all you have to do is go to Settings > Picture > Picture option and set the Black to ‘High’. LG needs to come out with a firmware patch that allows users to disable this option – it’s annoying as hell.
