I noticed the black and white slides in Evangelo's SD card files started at pure white (#FFFFFF in PhotoShop) but stopped at dark gray (#333333 in PS), short of pure black (#000000 in PS). I then noticed none of the red, green, or blue slides got particularly dark. For example, if you select green in Photoshop and check "only web colors", PS gives your five shades of green (00ff00, 00cc00, 009900, 006600 and 003300) but D-Nice had nothing darker than 009900. I assumed the two darker shades of green (00600 and 003300) were omitted by accident so I made a "corrected" set of slides with the full spectrum of all five shades of green, all five shades of blue, and all five shades of red.
Funny thing is, my Panasonic TC-P65ST30 says it cannot read the two darkest shades of green, red, and blue. It also cannot read the pure black slide. What's up with that? The files aren't corrupt because the SD card reads on multiple computers.
Are the darker shades outside the colorspace the TV is capable or rendering? I thought the point of a Plasma was it's colorspace vastly exceeds what an LCD can render. Yet my Plasma can't seem to render colors my LCD computer monitor has no trouble with.
