I use f.lux on my macs to change the blueish screen glow to something warmer, which supposedly screws less with your circadian rhythms. I'd love it if there were something similar one could do for occasional television watching. Does anyone know of any televisions that would allow you to do something similar? (An automatic "warm light" setting would be ideal...)
I suppose one might just go in and screw with the color settings? If so, are there any benchmarks or guideposts to aim for, or do you just try to tint the screen as orange as you can stand it?
I recently picked up a pair of these stylish glasses. You might get a few weird looks, but they work well and don't cost a fortune (ie anything from lowbluelights.com). Plus, you can watch TV, check your cell phone and use normal lights and still limit the effect on your circadian rhythm...
Aside from adjusting the color settings, you might find a pair of lightly-tinted orange glasses you could wear while you're watching tv. That way, any guests you have won't have to see everything in orange as well ;)
A first step would be to change the settings on your television to produce the warmest color temperature. Samsung LED TVs, as one example, often offer four different color temperature settings - pick the warmest (lowest K number). Doing this will reduce the amount of blue light emitted.
