I just recently bought the new Xbox 360 with the 250hd, etc. I was just curious what i should i have this set to. Should it be Auto, Source, RGB, or YCbCr709? I have it at RGB now but i wasnt sure to get the best PQ. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

I think I left mine on auto. I don't remember but I could check later. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the HDMI has a default setting.

Usually, the RGB color space is used for videogames while YCbCr is used for video. YCbCr709 is used for high definition video and the 601 version is used for standard definition video. All HDTVs/monitors support both color spaces so it really doesn't matter what color space you want to use.

Auto = Xbox 360 will automatically switch to RGB if you play a game and YCbCr if you play a DVD/HD-DVD.

Source = Xbox 360 will output the color space of the original source.

RGB = You force your Xbox 360 to use RGB for all types of media.

YCbCr709 = You force your Xbox 360 to use YCbCr709 for all types of media.

YCbCr601 = You force your Xbox 360 to use YCbCr601 for all types of media.

The 5.0 is here

I'll just set it to Auto then. Thanks for the help.
