A while back I had a clipping problem on my Pioneer 5020, where the green was clipped in every mode but movie, which was calibrated. Even in movie mode, the green was still "partially" clipped. Adjusting the contrast on the tv would not correct this problem. However, I have discovered that by lowering the contrast on my OPPO to -2 brings those clipping patterns to life in all modes including movie, game and standard. Also raising brightness to +1 on the OPPO combined with lowering the contrast, produced better results with the contrast and luge patterns. Adjusting those very same settings on the tv, without making adjustments on the OPPO had little if any improvement from the calibrated settings. From all I read on the forum, one should not really be adjusting the settings on the OPPO but on the monitor. But for me, it improved the overall PQ for movie watching that I could not get alone by adjusting the settings on the tv. Granted these changes will only affect the PQ while using the OPPO, and not cable box or internal tuner. So when one does get all colors not to clip, does that actually improve color, or just accuracy?
