Should I use 10-bit dithered, 10-bit, or 12-bit color in my BDP-93? I'm feeding a Samsung UNC46C8000 through an Onkyo TX-NR3008.
My Reon-VX video processor (inside the Onkyo TX-NR3008) has a "10-bit internal data path" and 4:4:4 YCbCr color support. In Through mode do you think it'll leave a 12-bit color signal fully in-tact before it reaches the display, or will the Reon-VX internally truncate it to 10-bit and then pad it to 12-bit on the way out? I suppose it's possible that the "10-bit internal data path" they're referring to when discussing the Reon-VX refers to something other than its color processing but my intuition tells me that it would necessarily impact its color precision, limiting it to 10-bit.
Also, I would guess that enabling 10-bit dithered (in the Oppo BDP-93) color enables Qdeo True Color processing, and that using a non-dithered setting does not use Qdeo True Color? Or is the deep color setting (and whether it's dithered or not) independent of Qdeo True Color?
Thank you folks if you can shed any light on these questions!
