I picked up a 42GT25 and a BDT210 bluray player a couple weeks ago.
I've gone through the entire player thread on AVS, and searched this one for any mention of the newer panny players.
What are the preferred/suggested HDMI color settings for these two? It seems that the GT will take any of the YCbCr or RGB color settings, but Deep Color is either Auto or OFF. The TV HDMI Color is either Auto, Standard or Non-Standard. Only actually setting it to Non-standard shows any difference, and to me, it appears lighter overall (no crushing blacks) but makes the contouring worse.
My issue is that I only have a couple BD to look at right now, Planet Earth is one set, Dark Knight is another (Avatar is on the way).
I've tried to set the THX to various suggestions here and on the web and Camron's suggestions for Avatar on the Custom, but the Planet Earth show Seas on the first disk is either crushing blacks and has color contours around anything bright. I've seen variance in one shot of a baby sailfish where the fish is blue with one set of settings and purple in another.
Very frustrating is there a suggestion or do I have to call in a calibrator and spend almost as much as I paid for the TV? Get a calibration disk?
I'm pretty happy with my HD and SD cable shows, and let the stb just pass whatever the channel is broadcasting rather than upconvert.
