I own the LG UH8500 2016 model UHD LCD TV. I asked in that thread but haven't received any replies. I could use some help with setting up my new media player's deep color/color space settings. I was hoping somebody could help if they're familiar with LG 2016 model sets in general:

I'm confused - do I need to rename the HDMI 1/2/3 input icon to "PC" for it to receive YCbCr 4:4:4?

I know in PC mode it accepts YCbCr 4:4:4 but how about when using the set for a UHD player/media player over HDMI? My new media player has options to output YCbCr 4:4:4, 4:2:0, and 4:2:2. It also has options for deep color 10-bit and 12-bit. The TV seems to display more banding if I set my media player to 10-bit, and it's even heavier if I disable deep color in the player, so I'd like to use 12-bit if possible, since the banding is less. But I'm not sure which combination of settings to use between my player and this TV.

If I enable Deep Color in this TV, does it support 10-bit or 12-bit or both? It doesn't specify. It's just listed as "HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Color".

And if it supports 4k @ 60 Hz 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, what happens if you send it 23.976/24Hz, like a media player or UHD player will do with movies that are in 23.976? Does the TV not support Deep Color when it's in 24Hz mode?

I looked at this chart but I'm just confused by it:

This page has some very good info:

"Blu-ray and UHD Blu-ray both store the video signal in the 4:2:0 format...HDMI2.0 does support 4:2:0 though only at 50/60 frames per second (FPS). At 24 FPS 10 bit only 4:4:4 and RGB are supported."

According to the chart on acousticfrontiers, I can't use 4:2:0 when playing 24Hz material with my player? I have to use 4:4:4?

Any advice?
