My display shows 16-249 (i think
). I think the European Samsung-LED´s can show 235 and above withoute problems (every Samsung LED i have calibrated), and your player is set to standard, you dont have to switch to enhanced.
Or did i missunderstood your problem?
Ok, thanks. No, I didn't want to switch to Enhanced mode cause as you said Blu-rays are mastered for limited range YCbCr. But I noticed that the blue and red channels in colored blinking pattern were hidden while in Standard mode, hence I tried Enhanced mode and they appeared.
Hm, but when 236 and above are also blinking, does it not mean that I have a dirty white at value 235 (not a pure white) later? How can be a white whiter than a white? White is unique. ^^

Could you explain a little bit further what is clipped away and in which direction, please? I put it up so high because the white was better with this value. How should I start with the first pattern (black brightness pattern)? With all values (brightness, contrast, backlight, ...) to max or min? And after that adjust or does it not matter?
Btw this is an adjustment for my Blu-ray player. How should I proceed with my DVB-C source? Can I use the settings from my Blu-ray player? It is the same color space, isn't it?
How can I see whether my gamma setting is right? And what is better: Auto or Native mode for Colour Space?
When you answer, could you please also explain the reason why it should be set to some value, because I want to understand it for the next time. Otherwise the values are like magic for me. I am actually still a beginner in calibrating and it is not easy to get it right. TIA! Edited by mnemonix - 10/30/12 at 12:17pm
