I'm thinking about buying a JVC RS1, but its default image is over saturated and it does not have any saturation controls. In one of the threads about this issue someone mentioned a workable HTPC solution and said there was already a thread about it on here.
I have looked and can find no link to this thread anywhere.
Can any of you tell me if it is possible to use an HTPC and software to fix saturation issues? I know this would only apply to discs and rips on the PC, but that would be enough for me ...
Take a look at the control panel for the various PC video makers (ATI, NVidia, Intel) and look to see if they have methods of controlling video saturation. I believe ATI does in their CCC, not sure about the others.
The problem with the RS1 is it's gamut is too wide, you really need some sort of 3D LUT/Gamut calibration. MadVR can make use of yCMS, but apparently there are some limitations to that. There's also the issue that that only calibrates video, not everything the PC displays. IMO you're probably better off getting a new JVC with more accurate colors to start with, or maybe a Lumagen Radiance Mini which has a 125 point 3D Gamut calibration feature.
