I forget the name of it, I'll check it for you later.

Thanks Geoff
It here's a thread on BluRay.com where Stacy Spears posts and she said you can't test for xvYCC on the disk.

Below is her response.

"xvColor is not officially part of the BD Spec, so there was no way, at the time of authoring, to signal it.

Most displays have xvColor disabled in the TVs UI if its not present. You can check and see if they enable it when you are playing a know title that claims to support it. At least my Panasonic VT20 was like that."

I could be wrong, but I get the impression from Stacey's response that the test pattern itself is genuine but it doesn't 'signal' the display in any way to tell it that it's passing xv colour. I have to actually turn it on in my TV menu to get the xvYCC pattern to display properly.

BTW it's under Advanced Video -> Evaluation -> Clipping.

I just watched the newest "ROBOCOP" and I have to tell you that it is a step up in clarity, but is it worth the $8 to do so??? Yes, it is and it will fit perfectly with all the other copies of the same movie...the only one I don't have anymore is the LD...time ,to move on, as they say!

Thanks so much Geoff! I'll give it a try. I'll manually set my W9 to xvColor. I have Captain Phillips to watch on my PS4 but don't know if if will output xvColor. Even if it does the difference might not be noticeable.

Edit: I ran the clipping pattern you are correct! PS4 will output x.v Color!
Unfortunately the Xbox one will not. In fact the Xbox one video output is a mess.
When RGB full is selected it clips the color range. If I'm describing it correctly.
All the boxes were solid viewing that pattern. If I set it to limited then it displays correctly.
That makes no sense to me. PS4 worked perfectly with RGB full.

The Smurfs 2 Blu-ray, mastered in 4K by Sony, is possibly the best-looking Blu-ray I've ever seen.eek.gif And trust me, I have seen too many to count. I have never seen live-action video blended so well with CGI, including Avatar. This is the definition of pure eye candy.

If Smurfs 2 had Kate Upton and Scarlett Johansson naked and making out with each other there still wouldn't be enough eye candy to make me watch the rest of it.

To draw it into an actual point though, it would easier to get excited about 4k (both true 4k and these Mi4k titles) if more of these were actual, you know, good movies. Glory, sure. Captain Phillips, Taxi Driver. Most of these others are just garbage though. This is seriously how Hollywood wants to turn people on to this new format? By using it to squeeze a few more bucks out of a bunch of CGI craptaculars and pointless remakes?

This is the same thing Sony did with SuperBit DVDs. The mentality from the studio is that the new branding is a way to move some copies of properties that have otherwise gone stale. How else could Sony make any money off Johnny Mnemonic? Nobody's going to buy that title for the movie itself, but some suckers might pay to check out the whiz-bang "SuperBit" thing.

Who said anything about watching the rest of it? That's what chapter stops are for! smile.gif

I ordered Spider-man 3 4K which was released yesterday. I am hoping Walmart sends me the correct one.
