Hi, I just got a new blu ray player that has different color space options and was wondering which would be best for my tv.. The player supports RGB, YCbCr, YCbCr422, or Full RGB. It also has the HMDI deep color option if that has any bearing on which color space I should use. The tv is a Mitsubishi WD-65737 (x.vcolor, deep color 36 bit).

Thanks for any help you can provide!

You can do a search in this forum for Color Space but what you will find is 4:2:2 should work best but not always.. Lots of posts and data from Doug Blackburn on the subject so maybe doing an advance search on his name will get there fastest if you are interested in reading all the details.

I'd ignore the HDMI Deep Color option and the X.V.Color space option, both of those arn't used by any Blu-ray movie. I'd select Ycbcr 4.2.2, that is the color space used by all movies on Blu-ray.

Greetings

It's actually 4:2:0 on the disc.

Yes, forgive me for not being specific. I should have said that it's normal for a player to convert the 4.2.0 signal on the disc to 4.2.2. All players must do this.
