Setting up AMD CCC correctly for WMC7?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry, I know this question has been asked before but I can't seem to find it.

I have a AMD HD7750 card and it is hooked up like this:

DVI to PC monitor HP 22" HDCP monitor

HDMI to my Iscan Duo with the audio out HDMI to my Denon AVR-4310ci

Ceton InfiTV4 PCI 4 tunner card

This all works fine but I am not sure of the best settings in CCC (12.10) to get the best picture.

I turn off all the extras in CCC control.


What color space to use ? RGB or , ........?

What Video levels to set? PC or Video

What I see is if I send PC levels out the black levels are better; but is this best?

Yes, I know RGB limited is broadcast standard but I want to minimize all unnecessary video conversions preserving best video quality.

Would like some help setting the card up for least conversions and best picture.

Thanks

WMC is already output video limited levels. That's why if you set PC level, you will get the best PQ on your PC (assume your TV is set to receive video limited). If you set your CCC to convert to video limited, you get double conversion and that will never work right. In general, I'd leave off any such conversion in the video card driver.
If WMC is all you use, you are all set.

If you use other players, that's a different story. WMP for example, only output PC range video. So, in your current setting, you will get black and white crush.

Kinda what I thought but what color space to use RGB or Component RGB?

So checking let app control in CCC and leave Dynamic off then is best?

By the way my output of the Iscan Duo is to my BenQ W1070, these will of course set accordingly to the input.

Thanks

I would just use whatever looks best to you.

On my BenQ w1000 I found ycbcr 4:4:4 to look best. Everything else I left default as it made no noticeable difference. I also noticed that HDMI 2 provides a much better picture from any source. If you get a good picture and nothing looks out of sorts then it is time to adjust your projector.
