Auto and Source are pretty close. Auto switches between YcbCr and RGB based on resolution & content type, Source switches based on the video or game source.
Experimentation with your particular AV equipment is will yield the best results. I don't think one is better than the other in all cases. Source will work well if you have an AV receiver or anything else in the chain that is either preventing autodetect from working or processing the signal (i.e. upscaling). My AVR does straight HDMI passthrough. Auto works well if your TV has an HDMI auto setting, especially if it also has a setting for HDMI content type. My Panny GT30 has this, you can set it to auto or select Picture/Graphics or off.
Bottom line is depending whether you calibrated for YcbCr or RGB, you're either going to get washed out video or black crush in games when it switches...you just have to decide which you want to live with based on what you use your xbox for most.
