IMHO, you want to send 0-255 RGB. If it was sending YCrCb it would need to send 16-235.

If you can change it to 16-235 RGB you'll lose brightness since you can only adjust the bottom side of that, and can't stretch 235 up to white.

I'm not sure I understand. 'white' is the peak level of the tv. if the tv is expecting a 16-235 signal, then 235 will be white, and anything above that won't be any brighter.


it's not about getting the most levels, it's about matching the display to the source, and currently video is 16-235, so that's what you want to use for it.


for what it's worth, there's a bunch of stuff that does 16-255 though, for whatever reason. often called something like 'superwhite'.
