I've just built a new home theater PC utilizing an AMD A10-5800K CPU and ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M FM2 microATX motherboard. I'm using two HDHomeRun PRIME units to get 6 tuners.
So far, i'm very happy with it. However, I did some video comparisons last night and noticed something.
I have FiOS with a Motorola 7232-2 DVR and a Panasonic 65" Plasma (VT50 series).
I flipped back and forth between the PC and Motorola and it feels like the PC color depth is not as deep as the Motorola. Areas in the frame where there's a wall or near solid color show smoother transitions on the Motoroal box and the color seems to be just slightly richer? I'm not sure I've got the right vocabulary to describe this.
Granted, I'm standing pretty close to the TV when I'm doing this and when I sit at my chair I hardly notice it. Also, I'm wondering if a calibration on the PC would rectify the colors.
Is this a driver setting, or am I missing something?
