Thanks Alan / Darin,
I will try the contrast settings in my BD player.
One thing I am curious about is this test disc suggests you should see all white bars (beyond 246).. Though the HDMI range in my BD player is either 16-235 ('normal' mode) or (enhanced) 0-246.. So it seems like I am in spec.
One thing I noticed is that when I run the pattern (player) through my SSP, I get 235 max... When I bypass my SSP, I can get up to 246. So, the SSP is at the 'normal' HDMI RGB levels maxing at 235 - blacks are fine.
Should I bypass my SSP ( I could use a 2X2 HDMI splitter and run 1 output to my LUMIS and the other to my SSP). This way I can send the full RGB signal (246) to my PJ and avoid my SSP's clipping it to 235) or is getting to 246 more theoretical advantage (as Darin eluded to)?
Another question is if a player spec maxes out at 246, why does the test disc say you should be able to see beyond 246? How can you do this?
There are more than a handful of [op amps] that sound so good that most designers want to be using them as opposed to discreet transistors. Dave Reich, Theta 2009
