Don't you wish these features/settings were better explained not only in the PS3 manual BUT also the VT30 manual? Exactly what these features/settings do and mean and exactly how they should be set for best performance should really be explained but isn't so we're left guessing and using the trial and error method.
RGB - I read that it should almost always be left set on LIMITED' but I believe the VT30 can handle FULL' so I have it set to FULL'. Someone else on this thread might know for sure which this should be set to for best performance. If so, I wonder what the detriment is to setting it to FULL' as opposed to LIMITED'.
SUPER WHITE - Again, I'm not absolutely positive that it's the correct or best setting for the VT30 but I have SUPER WHITE set to ON' because I can't imagine that the VT30 doesn't support it and although I don't remember specifically reading about it in the VT30s manual, I think this particular feature/setting is mentioned.
DEEP COLOR - I believe the VT30 supports DEEP COLOR so I initially had it set to ON' but others on this thread including D-NICE said to leave it off. I'll say this regarding this feature, with the PS3 on and the PS3s cross media bar backsplash/background on the screen, I do see a difference in color when I toggle the DEEP COLOR feature on/off. With it ON' the background does get darker/deeper in color than when it's off. Now as far as what effect it has on viewing content, that I cannot say. I had only noticed a change in the color of the PS3s cross media bar/menu/background but since those colors became deeper when DEEP COLOR was set to ON', I figured it had to mean the VT30 supports this feature and therefore I left it on. After D-NICE said leave it off I've left it set to OFF' because I figure as a professional calibrator he'd know a lot better than me. That's one hell of an explanation only to really just be telling you that I have it set to off but I don't think it hurts anything to have it on if you see a difference and like that difference. Whew! Sorry for the drawn out answer on DEEP COLOR.
24 HZ - I initially had it set to AUTO' but read somewhere that the PS3 doesn't always choose the correct setting when set to AUTO' so it was suggested to set 24hz to ON' which I now have it. Also, I've read that the VT30 does handle 24fps correctly when set to 60hz, just FYI.
BD/DVD VIDEO OUTPUT FORMAT - Again, this is another setting that isn't really explained well as to which setting is BEST for the VT3O. I had it set to AUTO' but recently changed it to 'Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr' and haven't noticed much of a difference if any at all in the picture.
These are the settings I'm using and I haven't seen or noticed any issues or problems with them.
I'm hoping someone else on this thread knows FOR SURE how these features should be set, unlike me like me who is using the above stated settings but isn't sure these settings are getting 'THE BEST' possible performance out of my VT30 pretty much using the trial and error method. I'm sure there's someone else here that not only knows how these features should be set but also knows why they should be set the way they suggest also.
Anyway, I hope I've been somewhat helpful at least. Good luck.
