"My advice is leave gamma at 0, and PC is the best preset out of the box."
"And PC mode is only more accurate as a preset (with warm 2, cell 20, contrast 95, sharpness 50), calibrated is better, but PC is probably better on the whole because copying settings can only get you so much."
OK, this is interesting!
I changed the output in the cable box from YCC 4:4:4 to RGB and then changed the channel lable on the TV to PC.
When the box sends a 1080i channel to the TV, all of the Advanced and Picture settings are available, but if the box is sending a 720p channel to the TV, then some of those settings are grayed out and can't be changed. Also with a 720p signal with PC Mode, there are a few lines of black pixels at the top of the image.
But I'm wondering if this PC mode should only be used for HD Cable, or also for Blu-Ray?
After trying the PC mode some today, it appears to only apply when the TV is being fed a 720p signal (shows Entertain and Standard picture modes), but when there is a 1080i signal it goes back to showing Dynamic, Standard and Movie.
Is this correct?
