Also what is your software version number?
Here is my chain of equipment and settings:
Oppo 103D -outputting YCbCr 4:2:2- all picture settings untouched (0) except for Darbee processing at HD 25
Lumagen mini - currently using a memory with no changes to the CMS, grayscale, or gamma (with the exception of raising 0 ire from 0.0 to 0.2) - the lumagen is outputting 4:2:2
Picture mode - User 1
Color profile - Standard
Color Temp - 6500K
Gamma - Custom 1 set at 2.3 and 2.4 (been going back and forth between these two) - dark level set to +3 for 2.4 and +2 for 2.3
MPC - 1,0,1,0
All motion settings off
Clear black off
Low lamp - iris @ -13 (auto 2 for regular use, manual looking at brightness patterns)
Input level - Super White - contrast set at 7 resolving to 240
I just went into the lumagen and changed the 0 ire setting back to 0.0 to take that out of the equation. At that point I was still able to see 17 but I needed to bring the brightness up to +2 and raise the dark level one more click (2 to 3, 3 to 4).
My RS600 seems to be a bit better at resolving 17 than my RS57 was. Seems I need to be less aggressive with the lumagen trick and the dark level adjustments.
I'm waiting on an exchange because of the bright corners, but now I'm concerned that there is some sort of weird variation between units for how they resolve 17. I'm hoping it is just some type of source/setting combination that is causing this for those who report it and not a variation in how the low end gamma is preset between units.
Edit: forgot to add the software version. It is u83.1
Also, I changed the input level from Super White to Standard (taking the contrast down to 0) and it didn't have any impact with how 17 is resolved for me.
