Actually these are Chroma sub sampling settings
Anything outside of 16-235 ...(0-16) is "blacker than black" (black below (016) reference black ) and (235-255)is "whiter than white (rec 709) 235 white
1080p ATSC HDTV /DTV /DVD(all) are YCbCr 4:2:0 with Blue Ray at YCbCr 4:2:2 ( all are 16-235 ) .
Nothing wrong with having these YCbCr 16-235 sources set accordingly nothing beyond that for TV to "see" or display anyway
( most are fixed though )
*some PC apps and games are either or YCbCr 4:4:4 or 0-255 full RGB .
Presumably RGB vidio on the Oppo is RGB limited
aka RGB 16-235 and RGB PC = RGB 0-255 aka full RGB
.(for PC display *other than 1080p* PC display which usually calls for YCbCr 4:4:4 ( 0-255 )
Most game consoles are YCbCr 4:4:4 .
Most Sony 1080p TV support YCbCr 4:4:4 at least when it sees a game console or PC on whatever HDMI ports that supports that .
ofc 4K 2160p HDR TV would presumably be 2160p /30 /60 YCbCr 4:4:4
on the HDMI ports that support that .
HDR and 2160p YCbCr 4:4:4 *and /or* HDR 2160p YCbCr 4:2:2
on Sony is subject to firmware updates later in 2015 ( for X940C/X930C HDR
sets only ) with YCbCr 4:4:4 ( 4K Blue Ray) , YCbCr 4:2:2 ( 1080p Blue Ray) and YCbCr 4:2:0 (all other 1080p TV ) sources supported as usual (subject to verification or change ) Sony Firmware update might be limited to 2160p YCbCr 4:2:2
That's the way it seems to be shaking out presently .Only thing that uses 2160p YCbCr 4:4:4 is a higher end PC video card anyway .
