Often the issue can be resolved with a setting in the display, but some displays need to be told what they are receiving. It has nothing to do with 12 bit color (Deep Color) per se, but sometimes sending 12 bit will cause handshakes to get messed up.
There's NO compelling reason to try to send 12 bit color from the Dune. First, because no current sources of HD video have 12 bit color, and second because the Dune does not have the video processing prowess needed to re-sample 8 bit to 12 in a way that's even remotely useful. In short; it can create problems and offers nothing.
The settings in the Dune for color space are confusing at best, and there are a number of possible ways to mess it up. But the settings in the display are equally important - it needs to be able to handle whatever is sent.
Thanks for the info, usefull read.
I have a DUNE HD Smart H1 and was wondering about the "output colorspace" setting. I am using firmware 121018_0846
I watch mostly 1080p Bluray mkv rips on my DUNE but I sometimes have the feeling the colour tint is a little on the green side.
Should I change the colorspace setting to 709 or should I just leave it to Auto? And what about the "default decoder colorspace" setting?
