I'm using my computer as a HTPC. This is how the signal comes to my HDTV.
Windows 7 Media Player Classic Homecinema (configured at 16-235) ->
ATI HD4870 (configured at 16-235) via HDMI ->
Denon AVR-1909 (configured at 16-235) via HDMI ->
Finlux HDTV (which I assume is configured at 16-235)
I'm not sure if this is correct. It seems like the Black in movies is not the same black as the bars around it. I mean, at some point movies use the blackest black (16)? The black bars around created by MPC-HomeCinema, are blacker than the movie, always.
Should all of them be configured at 16-235, or maybe just one of them? I'm not sure how to make sense out of all this. I read this following post about it.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post5386113
And downloaded the THX calibration JPEG, and ran it in MPC-HC. And when I view it, 16 - which I believe should be blackest black, is grey. Which should mean that either I misunderstood his post, which is very possible, or something isn't configured right?
If you have any good links about it, please post them, I'm right now running through the forum looking for a good way to calibrate it. I believe I might have missed some post, but I'm working on it.
