--PS3 Settings--RGB Full Range (HDMI) = Limited

Video Output Format = AUTO , Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr, or RGB
RGB Full Range: Limited or Full
***Full would *stretch* the 16 to 235 limited color space to 0 to 255. Stretching is changing the source in my opinion and that is bad. Apparently the PS3 was designed with the assumption that the majority of users will be using TVs and most all TVs are designed for the 16 to 235 color space.Y Pb / Cb Pr / Cr Super-White (HDMI) = OFF or ON
***ON is only for x.v.Color sources from what I have read (see link below...this is how I understood it), but ON seems to pass YCbCr BTB 0 to 15 and WTW 236 to 255 when calibrating. It has no effect in SD-DVD/Blu-Ray movies since they are YCbCr 16 to 235:http://manuals.playstation.net/docum...uperwhite.htmlBD / DVD Video Output Format (HDMI) = Automatic
***SD-DVD/Blu-Ray are encoded natively in the "Y Pb / Cb Pr / Cr" 16 to 235 color space. Not sure if there are RGB encoded discs out there, so let the PS3 determine with the automatic setting.BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI) = Automatic
***XBR4 and XBR5 displays will run 24p sources at 24FPS*5 or 120Hz as long as M.E. is set to OFF and Cinemotion is set to OFF or Auto2. I like Automatic settings (assuming they work), so let the PS3 decide if your display supports 24 FPS content.--XBR4/XBR5 settings--Motion Enhancer = Off
***Unless you want interpolated frames instead of copied frames to get to 120 FPS or 120Hz. Interpolated frames are new frames created by using math to guess what the frame should look like. This can minimize jumpiness and judder, but it can also cause some strange side effects and artifacts.Cinemotion = Off or Auto2
***Auto2 will disable M.E. for film sources and also extract 24 FPS film frames from film that has been converted to 30 FPS video using 3-2 pull down (i.e. SD-DVD). Cinemotion extracts the 24 FPS film by using reverse 3-2 pull down. If you watch non-Blu-Ray film content, then leave this on Auto2. Otherwise, turn it Off.RGB Dynamic Range = Auto
***Let the display decide if it is receiving limited 16 to 235 or full 0 to 255. Full may come into play if the PS3 starts offering RGB FULL 0 to 255, YCbCr 0 to 255, x.v.Color, Deep Color, etc. sources via games and/or Blu-Ray.Color Matrix = Auto
***ITU601 is for SD-sources and ITU-709 is for HD sources. Let the TV decide. Hopefully the PS3 is reporting this correctly to the TV. The former Microsoft HD-DVD rep on this forum (Amirm) said that many upconverting SD-DVD players dont bother to convert from 601 to 709 and most HD displays assume all HD content is 709, so the end result is incorrect colors (601 source being played on a 709 display). If the XBR is detecting which format is being sent and the PS3 is not properly converting, then it is possible that upconverted SD-DVD is displaying at 601 on the XBR when using the auto setting. Hopefully the PS3 is taking the 601 source and properly converting it to 709 and then the XBR is seeing 709 and showing this as the end result.
Keep in mind the above is all my opinion based on my research thus far. I am still learning, but it sounds like there are no current sources that support x.v.Color, Deep Color, YCbCr 0 to 255 & RGB FULL 0 to 255 (unless you are using a computer, but we are talking about the PS3 in this thread). So at this point, I am thinking you can turn off all these types of bells and whistles.
