Otherwise the settings on one of the devices would be wrong (washed out or black crush).
I hope people who use my settings are at least aware that depending on their source device (blu-ray player, PS3, cable box, etc) they have to set their HDMI setting accordingly. If the device is set to output full range (0-255 RGB) then the TV has to be set to nonstandard on that HDMI port or your black levels will be off.
This is why I recommend you always use a calibration black clipping pattern and make sure the settings are correct.
I just ordered the p60s60 at best buy for $1150, which jumped down to $1300 the other day (although they would match amazon which was always that price). It sucks that going 10 inches is $450 more and it'll come down in price but I'm giving my older TV to a relative. I'm coming from a P50S2 2010 with the proper break-in and d-nice's settings which were fantastic so I'm not expecting to be blown away between the 2010 model to this one but the 10 inches will be nice, that's what she said.
Anyways, I'm a bit confused with your post. On the PS3 should I set the RGB Full Range (HDMI) to limited or full. From a little scan on google it seems that limited is the way to go. Other than that, with the research I did and a post maybe 30 pages ago it looks like the best settings for the PS3 are:
BD/DVD Video Output Format (HDMI): Y Pb/Cb Pr
1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI): Off
RGB Full Range (HDMI): Limited
Y Pb/Cb Pr
/Cr Super-White (HDMI): On
Deep Color Output (HDMI): Automatic
I think that's correct but maybe somebody else have different opinions. I'm lost on the 24hz output though. When it's on, my Denon AVR info says it's running at 24p but off it doesn't show what hz it's running, like the 48 or 60hz which I think my 2010 TV can do. How do you know if it's running at 48 or 60 is that through the television settings or what? Thanks to fairchild and all others as it took me a while but I read all the pages and besides the buzzing issues which have been beaten to death this looks like a great buy.
