Yes, sorry, the "SDR BT.709" pattern "Color and Tint.
3. Here you mention UHD patterns, so just want to confirm the difference between 2 and 3. Maybe you mean SDR in 2 and HDR in 3? Everything is UHD except the HD scaling patterns.
The color and tint pattern under the video setup menu (SDR 709) has the same pixel values as the color and tint pattern on the 2nd edition. Only thing different is the resolution. If you are seeing a difference, then the player or display is making a change.
Actually, after resetting all player settings, I do get the same value of my color setting on the TV, 50, for both 1) and 2).
The HDR version of the color and tint pattern is different as it is HDR. (58% stimulus) Those will be tone mapped by the player to your Plasma since it is SDR only. They are also 2020 vs. 709.
Do you have the HDR optimizer enabled?
For 3), the HDR optimizer makes a very very slight change. I end up with the color setting to 47 on the TV which is not good since
that is the wrong setting for watching 1080p content on the same player. But I now have set the player's UHD setting "Colour Adustment->Colour Saturation" to -2 which seems like a compromise so that I can have the same Color setting on the TV regardless of which type of disc I am playing.
Does it makes sense? To me, it seems the player does not tone map correctly.
Now, here is a follow up: if I change DR Conversion Adjustment and/or Tone Curve (White) etc in the player, it throws up the color setting (viewed in blue mode) again, should I try to compensate that too with the Colour Saturation or skip it?
