Surface RT Dynamic Contrast

The Surface RT seems to have dynamic contrast enabled and it's driving me nuts (on a image with bright colors the screen brightness turns up, and it turns down on dark colors) it's noticeable when watching movies and say during a dark scene someone with a bright shirt comes in, boom the brightness increases. It's even noticeable on the home screen if you have one screem with a lot of bright live tiles and swipe over to one without. Is there any way to turn this off? (turning off automatic brightness doesn't do it as its unrelated to the sensors/ambient light) It's annoying to the point i'll probably have to return my RT due to it if i can't get it disabled.
