Ok - here to solicit some help with an RS25. I'm not necessarily having a problem - but I know that I am not getting to my results in the best way possible.
So I am using an Oppo BDP-83, connected to a Denon 3808, then onto the RS25. I'm using the AVS test disc (%75 windows). When working with the CMS in the RS25, I am running out of room on yellow saturation. In order to compensate for this I'm having to dial my "Color" setting way back - then compensate for this in the CMS. (I am in "Natural" setting and have already done grayscale and gamma at this point). My results are good (see below), but I know from speaking with Jason Turk and others, that I should not have to do this. Here are my results:
At first I thought I was using Calman incorrectly, but I have confirmed these results using HFCR and Chromapure - if I set Color correctly, I run out of room on yellow. The only way to get yellow good, is to dial back the color, compensate for this in the CMS for each other color - then I get enough room to get the yellow in line.
At this point, I know that something in my video chain must be doing something. It is almost like right off the bat, I'm displaying an image in which the color setting is too high. I know that the Oppo has its own "color" control - but I never once touched this and the default should be "0". It didn't occur to me to check whether it wasn't until I was brushing my teeth last night. Originally I had the color space set to 4:2:2 but switched it to Auto last night to see if this helped. While this did appear to change the levels - it didn't change the fact that i'm maxing out yellow. I now have the color space on the Oppo set to Auto (which I think means it goes to 4:4:4) and source direct is "ON". I don't think that the Denon should be doing anything - but maybe it is?
