Thoughts? Both cnet settings and rad tech keep crushing black on the test disk...
What software are you using? It is a chore to get all the input/output levels to match in the entire chain. Decoder > renderer > video driver > receiver > TV.
I'm using Zoom Player with LAV video decoder with madVR renderer. Nvidia 301.42 drivers with HKR,,SetDefaultFullRGBRangeOnHDMI,%REG_DWORD%,1 hack. HDMI to Elite receiver (video processing set to off).
LAV video decoder set to "TV Levels (16-235)"
MadVR set to "TV Levels"
Nvidia GTS450 sending full range (0-255) to receiver via HDMI
With the above configuration, I get correct level at Contrast 30 and Brightness 0. BTB and WTW information is preserved and passed to the TV.
