I recently purchased the 'LD460' LG LCD. It's mainly used for HD Movies (720p or 1080p) and Video Games.
The forum have a post here
about the fact 4:4:4 sampling will not work on HDMI to HDMI connection due to a driver bug in both ATI and Nvidia. I'm guessing that the Playstation 3 (or the Wii for that matter) using some sort of ATI or Nvidia chipset (I'm not aware to any other graphical chip set companies) , so it will also won't display a real 4:4:4. Also - as far as I understand, there is no 'option' to turn on 4:4:4 on the TV Set - it just displays it if the video displayed is 4:4:4 right?
I tried to have a look just for the research. According to the post above, I can test is using two ways:
1. Using this
file, I should be able to read the 'Red' easily. I wasn't at the start - but playing around with the LCD Settings (Dynamic Contract and Black Level) made is look crisp and clear. As far as I know - 4:4:4 should not be a subject to color settings so I'm guessing this is not it?
2. Using this chart
. See the attached picture. The 'blue' in the middle seems to point the 4:4:4 does not work?
Why is the difference between the two tests?
If I'm summing it up - There is no way to enjoy 4:4:4 on my Console at the moment right? Unless somehow ATI/Nvidia will fix this HDMI Bug and sony will push a new system update?
For the PC, I know there is an option to find an DVI to HDMI Cable, or use a fix that disables sound on the HdMI?
