Ok so I was looking on my PS3 trying to make sure all settings will be optimized for my Samsung ln46c750 tv. I am going to list the options that I have no clue what to do with and would appreciate it if you guys could give me suggestions!

Cross Color Reduction filter on/off
RGB Full Range (HDMI) full/limited
Y PB/Cb Pr/Cr Superwhite HDMI: On / Off
Deep Color ouput HDMI: Auto/off

In Video Settings: BD/DVD video output format HDMI : Auto/RGB/ Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr

BD 1080P 24Hz Output HDMI: Auto/On/Off
Dynamic Range Control: Auto/On/Off
Audio Output Format: Bitsream Linear PCM ( will give HT model number below)
BD Audio Output Format Optical (I use optical) Bitstream Mix/Bitstream Direct/ Linear PCM
For a home theater I just use a budget Sony DAV-HDX277WC

And I have these options when outputting over optical can select multiple:

Dolby 5.1 Ch
DTS 5.1ch
AAC
LinearPCM 2ch 44.1khz (checked and greyed out)
LinearPCM 2ch 88.2 khz
LinearPCM 2ch 176.4 khz
linearPCM 2ch 48khz (checked and greyed out)

I know this is alot to ask but I am not sure of this stuff and you guys are experts! I want to make sure I am getting the best possible experience! Iam usign HDMI for video and Optical for audio since the TV won't pass the 5.1 to my HT over optical

Settings shown in red above should work well with your setup.

Usually Full will crush blacks. Screen up a pluge pattern and compare the two settings.

Limited is the 16-235 range, while Full (PC) is the 0-255 range.

Some people think they might be missing something because it says "Limited", but Full doesn't give you "more", as the zero in Full is the equivalent of 16 in the Limited range. Think of 32 degrees Fahrenheit vs 0 degrees Celsius. They both are the freezing point of water. It's just a different scale, and they had to call it something. If set incorrectly, the TV will think every shade below 16 is zero, and that's when blacks get crushed.

Once you set it to Limited, games will display correctly, but RGB may be bypassed for DVDs and Blu-rays if the Video Output Format (HDMI) setting is set to Auto or Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr, so contrary to my previous post, you also must set that to RGB.

Again, screen up any test pattern with black bars similar to this.






Any THX DVD should have a similar pattern with seven black bars.


If you can't adjust the brightness control to get separate shades of black for all of the bars, you're getting black crush. Switch to the opposite of the settings I gave you and try again. The difference should be quite obvious.


EDIT: Once you have adjustability, follow the directions on the disc, or turn down the brightness until the two darkest bars blend into one shade, then turn up the brightness and stop just when you can see them as separate shades again.

IMPORTANT READ!!!!!, For the best Framerate out of your PS3 games please turn off BD 1080p 24Hz Output under PS3 Video Settings in the XMB Menu. Also be sure to turn off Your HDTV's "Film Mode" as this forces your TV not to fully do 60fps (Frames Per Second) So with "Film Mode off that will make your HDTV stay at 60fps. This makes your PS3 games Smoother with better framerate but you have to play in 1080p to get the best Framerate at 60fps or close to it. I've tried this with 720p and while the framerate is decent I can't help but notice that in 720p the framerate isn't as smooth as 1080p with the BD 24Hz Output off as well as your TV's "Film Mode".:)
