I am having some questions about gamma and color output. I live in a very remote village, and could not get my projector calibrated. What my biggest problem is, that there are so many different gamma corrections. Out of the box the cinema mode is set on Gamma 8.
But that is not the only problem I am having for a BASIC setting. The Blu ray player output different HDMI color-space settings. When My oppo 93, is on Auto, I guess it ouptuts RGB (but not sure!) In that setting, I find "no gamma correction" the only option, because contrast is so strong. I have also more video noise.
I tried the Y'CbCr 4.2.2 setting. This gives a total different result. Image is much softer, movie - like. It is like a different projector. Here Gamma 7 does well to give the image some "punch" it lacks in "no gamma correction" mode. But at first sight I think Gamma 4 looks the most natural, but difficult to tell. The video noise is less apparent in this output wit.h the Oppo
But I am no expert. I am going to try to tweak it better on eyesight with video essentials (there is a sony disc), but not know how to use it. Mos timportant for me to begin with is to have some advice, how to put the color space of my hdmi output and on which Gamma to begin my "light " calibration!
Thank you for your suggestions. I will ad that my environment is a living-room, but he screen is far from the wall, and my screen is a Beamax with 1.5 gain.
I like my HT, wine and pretty girls. But...am I the only one
