36 bit or actually not 36 bit - this is something worth discussing
I have done a search and its come up before but not discussed at any length I wonder how many people are doing the same as me.
To my knowledge all the blu ray players I have owned have outputed 36bit - that is what comes up on my Kuro, however with the LX55 you have the options of off, 30bit and 36bit.
I automatically put it on 36bit - however another set of eyes (my cousin the same set that always debates with me) told me that he had read that all blu rays are shot in 24 bit - therefore if 36 bit is selected the BD player is upscaling the colour palette.
Now some players will do this flawlessly with the majority including the reference level LX91 will actually add errors to the colour.
What is the theory and thougths of the masses on here. I am not sure what I thought was best and will test more
Second Point to Note - this one was a lot clearer
Blu Rays are apparently shot in Ycbr 4.2.0 and the edited to 4.2.2 - therefore there is upscaling of the colour pallette again if you select Ycbr 4.4.4
I have always had my Kuro and Blu rays set on Ycbr 4.4.4 - however again recent tests (yesterday) have proved that 4.4.4 blooms the colours and 4.2.2 appears far more natural.
I have the luxury with the Kuro to set the colour specifically at 4.4.4, 4.2.2 RGB or RGB Full, I know other TV's do not give you these options.
By Contrast I have always found selecting RGB especialy Full RGb to produce a lower quality image with crushed blacks
Again what are the thoughts of the masses
