Fred, I'm a little confused as you originally asked where the RGB Range setting was:

And then you yourself listed the options in the HDMI Setup menu that I pointed out, the first of which is RGB Range!:
Auto Lip Sync
HDMI Audio Out
Anyway, I see where the confusion lies as there WAS a separate "Color Space" setting on the '09 models but it looks like they removed that option as I guess it confused people, and wasn't really necessary as pretty much every standard video device is using component color space.
Notice that (pg 31 of the 2310CI manual) in the explanation of "RGB Range" it says specifically that "This setting is valid when using a TV equipped with a DVI terminal" -- because DVI inputs use RGB format. If you are using a typical HDMI-equipped display it is irrelevant.
So, in other words, my original advice still stands -- for most people with typical setups just DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT!
Just leave it at the default setting, it is only relevant in special situations where you are using an RGB monitor (i.e. with DVI inputs).
Really all I'm looking for is any settings that let the video signal from my blu-ray player and Mac Mini pass through to the TV without change.
now, if you had just said that from the beginning!
the HDMI setup part isn't really relevant to this -- video processing settings are set BY INPUT in the INPUT SETUP menu; that HDMI Setup menu is only for some global settings but do not affect the video processing.
If you want your video to pass through untouched over HDMI, just make sure the "i/p scaler" is set to OFF (see pg 38 of the manual for Video Settings). Again, you can set this separately for each input, so changes you make to, say, your Blu-Ray player will not affect the video processing for, say, the cable box.
