Ok, I'll get my imageshack pictures (full res) posted tonight, along with the info you'd requested.
After using the box for a while, I have quite a few software enhancement requests for Allen, and a few software bugs that really should be fixed. Right now, this is all based on hunches, but I think the box outputs YCbCr colorspace, and when you use the VGA input, I don't think it properly scales the 0-255 to 16-235, resulting in clipped blacks and whites when using VGA. More testing will hopefully prove this.
The other thing is I'm not sure they're using the right Rec 601 or Rec 709 coefficients for decoding YCbCr, in that 480i from my Pioneer bluray to my calibrated TV looks very good color wise when everything is at the neutral picture setting on the 8VX. Any source that outputs 1080i to the 8VX, using the neutral color settings is much too dark and a bit oversaturated. My gut says that the box is decoding 1080i with Rec 601 (SD) instead of Rec 709 (HD). The image using neutral settings looks a bit like the second set of pictures here:http://www.glennchan.info/articles/t...709rec601.html
I need to check using the built in tuner on neutral settings as well, to see if it has the same issue.
The DVDO Edge Green allows you to specify output video level (Auto/RGB/YUV), output colorspace (Auto/RGB/YCbCr 444/YCbCr 422) output colorimetry (Auto/BT.601 (SD)/BT.709 (HD)), and input video level, colorspace, and colorimetry for each input. Ultimately, this is what I'd like to see, but the "Auto" option has to be there and work first.http://www.dvdo.com/documents/DVDO/D...ers_Manual.pdf
