Ok, so the 360 has video options for RGB and YCC 709. I'm pretty sure I don't need to be using the Ycc 602, right? and RGB full-range crushes blacks...so that's out.
Anyway, switching between RGB and Ycc709 I can see some minor differences. In Ycc mode, the colors seem a bit smoother(more gradations?), less saturated, and I actually have to drop the red saturation in my TVs color decoder by one notch. Blue and green saturation and all 3 color's hues are the same as when on RGB.
When I switch to RGB, the colors look a bit more saturated, a bit "chunkier"(less gradations?), and I have to bring my red saturation back up one notch for it to be accurate.
So what does this mean? I mean it's weird that Ycc looks less saturated, yet I have to LOWER the red saturation to bring the color decoder in line...
Can anybody tell me which mode is actually more accurate? Which is the proper one to be using? I don't want to just choose by eye, otherwise I wouldn't even bother calibrating at all.
If my TV was meant for RGB, would it even accept the Ycc signal?
