Settings > Interface > Screensaver > DIM  allow more dim than 20%, I would like 10%

Basically, I want to be able to Dim the display more than the current limit of 20%, I am thinking probably 10% is what I am after but its hard to no for sure without being able to try anything past 20%

What I am trying to achieve is a screen that is so dim that you can read the text and tell that it is on, but just barely, right now its still a bit too bright at 20%.

to test it, you can modify the settings file of the dim screensaver.

change the range value to start at 10

Thanks! I have found the relevant file:

sudo find / -type f -name "settings.xml" | grep dim
sudo nano /usr/share/kodi/addons/screensaver.xbmc.builtin.dim/resources/settings.xml

and changed the line to allow 5% which is about where i like it:

  <setting label="30000" type="slider" id="level" range="5,1,100" option="percent" default="20"/>

This is important to me because the feature "Put display to sleep when idle" is no longer functioning now that I upgraded from 17.6 to Kodi v18.
This should help me to prevent burn-in, in the event that I forget to turn the tv off, hopefully the display sleep function can be made to work again.

Also I did submit a ticket for that: https://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/18051
