Wait. Lemme see if I understand. My DVD Players Outputs HDMI and I convert to my TV's DVI-In. So I may be missing black shades from 0-7??? So what will the shades 0-7 appear as?
Black. Instead of being shades, they will all be the exact same black.
The issue is not with the cable, it is an issue with the standards implemented in the video processors (encoder -> decoder.) Sammy's implement the computer scale standard not the film industry. Simply put, to a computer, black is black, but the people in the film industry needed a blacker than black.
