I recently bought a new Samsung TV, the LN46C630. I noticed that when I used it with my XBOX 360 Elite (older, about 3 or so years old) connected through HDMI, I got some slight flickering. After hours of testing with different inputs and different TVs - I finally figured out this:

It only happens when my XBOX's HDMI is set to RGB mode, and the HDMI Black Level option on my TV is set to low. However, I don't have another HDMI output with an RGB mode. I'm trying to figure out, is it my XBOX's RGB mode that's messed up? Or is it my TV's Black Level option that's messed up? I have only a few days to return the TV, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to make a conclusion about this. Thanks in advance.

Just a quick question... why do you need it set to RGB mode with low black level output?

On my display setting the HDMI Color Space to Auto causes the picture to be slightly washed out and sort of "soft" looking. Choosing 709 causes the blacks to be deeper, the colors to be more vibrant, and the image to be sharper. I prefer 709, but admittedly haven't played with the settings much.

Mathematics is the reason for the season.

I don't necessarily. I just want to make sure that my TV's working 100% while I can still return in it case I need this function for some reason in the future.

Also, it actually looks really nice on the RGB with the low HDMI black setting, except for the flickering...

Btw are you using "game mode"? That turns off all the "processing" of the picture and I find keeps the image vivid as well ie not washed out..
