Thanks for the review Lee.


Unless the protagonist becomes a communist, I assume there is a typo and you mean "forced to go rogue", not rouge :)

Hi Maximus,

Yes, the movie has to be a Mastered in 4K Sony title for x.v.color to be usable. Other non Sony titles made from a 4K master do not use the x.v.color feature to expand the gamut, so...

Can we please remain on-topic? What you feel about x.v.color is not relevant, mainly because you have no first hand-experience on the subject, especially with the JVCs as you didn't know they...

As I said in my earlier post, take it to Joel Barsotti if you disagree with the lead developer of Calman.

You clearly don't understand what xvYCC is.

Min4K blurays are encoded in xvYCC, not "something close to it". This is misinformation, like stating that the JVCs don't support x.v.color.

Hi Kris,

Just to clarify,

YCB is always 12 bits over HDMI because it's temporal, not parallel encoding. The 8/10/12 bits (deepcolor or not) is only relevant for RGB.

This is why the...

You can't use YCB4:2:0 from the mini. It's HDMI 1.4 and 4:2:0 isn't supported, it has to be converted to 4:2:2 before being sent over HDMI. There is no advantage doing so anyway as the mini...

Yes, that's the correct label. If your bluray doesn't have that label, don't waste any time trying to get auro 3D out of it, it simply won't work, you'll just get Auromatic at best.

Wow this is a credit to Dirac. Is it so superior to XT32 that you'd rather have Dirac for ear level and no correction on the heights rather than XT32 on all speakers?
