I believe it is important to match the output. If your cable box outputs RGB, set Blu-ray to RGB for that input. Other than the Xbox One, all of my sources output YCbCr 4:4:4.

I have never tried it, so I don't know. Assuming it came from someone at SpectraCal, it is probably correct. My display has a blue-only mode and both color and tint are correct by default.
