There are two color management settings which can be found on the projector. TrueColor (RGBCMY as you mentioned) and the Color Temp setting.
The TrueColor setting can be found at: Settings > Picture > TrueColor. Under TrueColor, you can tune different color space including: Red, blue, green, yellow and purple, it also give you the option to adjust the brightness and skin tone.
The color temperature setting can be accessed when video files are played on the projector by pressing the Menu key and go to Scene Mode > My Mode > Picture > Color Temp. You can adjust three color gains from there including Red gain, green gain and Blue gain.
The TrueColor settings are managing the DLP chips and the Color Temp settings are managing the Mstar media decoding chips. They works in a similar way, but they are different.
Any changes made under the TrueColor settings will be applied to the DLP chips which means the changes will be applied to the projector as an universal adjustment in regardless of the selected display scene mode.
Changes made under the Color Temp settings only applied to the user defined scene mode and only available for access when you are playing a video files due to the fact that it is a setting from the Mstar media decoding chips instead of the underlying DLP chips.
So, basically, you may think them in this way, the TrueColor settings are hardware settings while the Color Temp settings are software adjustment.
Also, TrueColor settings allow you to set value for more detailed color space than color Temp settings.
You can use both settings together according to your preference to achieve the best possible image performance as desired.
