Thanks for your patience.
Auto = allows only those colors that are expected from a broadcast source.
Wide = allows whatever is on the source material.
Custom = allows you to use test patterns to more accurately tweak color and should be used in conjunction with the "White Balance" and "Flesh Tone" adjustments.
Hope that helps!"http://forums.cnet.com/5208-13973_10...hreadID=321315
I know when i'm using DVE, the native space with color and tint right in the middle is almost perfect ( still an error with green). i'm no pro though
I have a b550.
As I said before... the color space should be limited to the source material only
and per Samsung Tech, which is the few times I have read a correct answer to a question:
I might agree with you there. Most people would wonder why we offer those in the first place, and it's for calibration purposes. There's little reason to calibrate a television outside of the broadcast spectrum, so those settings are there as a guideline for that one specific reason - NTSC broadcast calibrations.
Let me know if I can help with anything else.
In addition for those of us with the 400 series (450) there are only two choices for color space... AUTO and NATIVE.
FYI: For broadcast and standard DVD the color space reference is D601, for HDTV and Blue Ray it is D709, which is a slightly larger color space (Blue ray's display more colors). In AUTO the TV will sense by resolution (480i = D601, 720/1080i/1080p = D709) and adjust the color space as required.
