bright to dark scene breakup

I'm attempting to export a standard DV sequence to tape - but at cuts between a bright scene and a dark scene, the video breaks up - the dark scene "whips" before settling down. I saw it while transfering to tape, and also while playing back the recorded tape. But this is only noticable on a CRT monitor - not on an LCD.

I'm sending this tape out to be closed-captioned and then duplicated on BetaSP, and I'm trying to determine if the problem is being recorded onto the tape? or is it just a problem with the CRT?

Any thoughts on how to eliminate this glitch?


I checked it on another CRT and don't see the problem - so hopefully it's just a problem with my main monitor.

However, in thinking there was something wrong with my signal, I stumbled across the Video Limiter filter in PPro - it lets you set a clipper for the min and max chroma levels (-20 and +120 respectivly), and also for the lum levels (0 to 100)
