I can't speak for DTV, but from what I've read the HR24 box is misreading the EDID of display devices, and sending the wrong levels.
I do know that if the signal is different than what the TV expects, the TV (or adapter, as in this example) will interpret it the wrong way and in this case, crush blacks. I don't know why the adapter accepts only RGB, perhaps to facilitate conversions to checkerboard, perhaps to save money. It doesn't matter.
YCC is an encode of RGB and is converted to RGB before being displayed anyway, so it is a no brainer for me as to how to set the PS3 for my application.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YCbCr
Y′CbCr is not an absolute color space, it is a way of encoding RGB information
You can't see anything in native YCC. It has to be converted back to RGB for display
If I run YCC thru the adapter, blacks get crushed. Period. This does not happen with RGB Limited. End of story. I have confirmed my setup is correct by running test patterns in all modes.
People can complain all they want about no YCC, and bypass the adapter for 2D, but guess what? The adapter will still crush the blacks when they switch back to 3D unless the source is also switched back to output RGB Limited!
