Should I set xvYCC to ON (xvYCC on tv) when using the PS3? The ps3 has the option to turn on vYPb/Cb Pr/Cr (super white) also.




Setup:
hdmi v1.3 monoprice cable (ps3 to tv)
TV: LNT4671F

I'd leave xxYCC color gamut off unless you have a source using it.

I meant like a movie using the xvYCC color gamut.

The PS3 and most likely your TV support xvYCC already.

There are no movies with xvYCC support. Yes both tv and ps3 support this.
I think you are missing my point. The question is : Does enabling those features on both my tv and ps3 have any effect on non-xvYCC content? -(Games, blu-rays, dvds) I read in another post that turning xvYCC on helped eliminate black crush.

hi Zygon,

So your PS3 & TV has xvYCC, but is the movie you are watching using the full xvYCC color gamut ? If its a "feature film" did the cameraman use a camera which has xvYCC support ?

If its a cartoon/animation film, or video game then is the production company supporting xvYCC color gamut ?

I guess you need to answer those questions before you want to sensibly switch that control. I guess I would keep it on all the time...

There is no current content mastered using xvColor in the consumer domain. This includes video games, broadcast AND pre-recorded media. It seems to be mostly a marketing thing right now.

When I put a dvd(480i) in my ps3 it is unconverted to HD. The source itself (DVD) is not hd. I say that to ask this: If I put non xvYCC content (blu-ray disk) into the ps3(xvYCC compatible) while using my tv (xvYCC compatible) is there any advantages? When I enable xvYCC on the tv and ps3, things change. Blacks look darker and the color changes. All I want is the best picture possible. If that means turning on or off xvYCC so be it. I just want the answer.

The fact that it looks different is to be expected. The xvColor gamut is MUCH larger than standard HD. The issue is whether the content is supposed to use it. It is not, so do not use xvColor if you care about accuracy. I'm not sure how much clearer this can be.
