I do not know exactly what the Black Level
setting does, but I suspect that it is merely fine tuning the image.
Panasonic recommends setting Black Level to Darker if you are using component and lighter for composite. It appears that the setting is ignored when using HDMI, and this is consistent with comments in the DMP-BD30 thread.
The 16-235/0-255 distinction you are thinking of is probably what is controlled by the HDMI RGB Output Range
setting. Standard is normal, enhanced takes advantage of the full range. If you activate this enhanced option, you should be sure there is a similar option on the TV.
The Panny will automatically output xvYCC (Deep Color)
if it detects that it is supported by the display. If your TV supports xvYCC deep color, and you have it activated on your TV, the HDMI RGB output range is irrelevant and ignored.Caveat:
This post is speculation, but I think it is accurate.
Wouldn't it be nice if Panasonic actually explained these features?
