HDMI RGB Range Settings
Having made a splash into the blu-ray/Flat TV arena, I am so far very impressed with the results. I own a Pioneer 428XD and accompanying Elite BDP-95FD bluray player. I am however confused over one picture color output setting. On the bluray player, I am to select either RGB(16-235) or RGB(0-255). Likewise, the plasma TV can also be fixed to accept RGB(16-235) or RGB(0-255) or set to Auto mode. I have asked the manufacturer who suggest using RGB(16-235). However, my dealer uses RGB(0-255) on his Kuro TV. Making the issue more infuriating is that on some DVDs, RGB(16-235) is better, while on some bluray discs, RGB(0-255) seems better. Obviously, I cannot keep switching settings depending on what disc I put on which is very inconvenient.
I would appreciate comments/feedback from anybody, especially the more technology inclined as I am lost. Common sense tells me that the setting should be set to RGB(0-255) as it represents the full color range which is what a premium plasma TV and bluray player should be able to make full use of. Am I right or is the whole issue software dependent, cable dependent, etc ???
On another separate note, has any PDP428XD owner attempted to play around with the vast manual color setting for low/high color temperature fields.....it is so confusing to me so I just left the color temp to "Mid" but my friends tell me to experiment as I am not making full use of the TV's features.....
Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated
