Hey everyone, right now im getting very frustrated with my ps3
It has this option for HDMI full or limited and im still not sure which one to pick.

i own an optima hd65 and i can not find any information anywhere on this subject for this projector.
my problem is that when i set my ps3 to hdmi limited, the blacks seem a little washed out but i get good shadow detail, just a lot of grey
(after setting it to limited i calibrate my projectors contrast and brightness using a THX dvd)

but when i set it the ps3 to hdmi full the blacks seems a little crushed but at least black, just loss of shadow detail
(again i calibrate with the Thx)

so what setting should i use on my ps3.

and am i on the right settings on my projector
-Delma Film
and medium color scale.

This is data taken form the PS3 post in the BR player section of AVS forums and verified by other calibrators.
These are the setting you uss on your PS3 for watching BR and should work find for gaming. Once you set up the PS3 correctly, you will want to use a calibration disk to set the basic user level controls such as brightness contrast and sharpness.. there is a free disk you can download and burn to standard DVD (only plays in BR player but only requires a standard dvd and burner to create it). This can be found here

sweet thank you, ive been going crazy trying to figure out if it was limited or not, all i could ever find is that TVs are limited and monitors are Full however some Tvs are full but yet projectors can be used for both and there was never information lol.

General rule -
For movies and video, set color space as (16-235) in player and (16-235) in projector (if it has that option, may be labelled differently though)
For PC, set color space as (0-255) in player and (0-255) in projector
