I have a Sony 75H Upscaling to 1080i to my HC4900 which is 1080p...


So do I pick the RGB or YCbCr setting under HDMI OUTPUT...??


Obviously I want the BEST picture I can get!

This only determines the color system used. They should be equivalent in quality. It is possible that the player + display likes one setting better than the other, so try both and use a calibration disc for each option. If you can see no difference, then it doesn't matter.


If you are using RGB, there may be a choice between STUDIO (or "normal") and PC (or "enhanced") grayscale. A/V equipment is supposed to use STUDIO but you should calibrate both ways and pick which you like best.

I don't think your Sony can output 10bit video, but for future reference with YCbCr you can output 10bit video which can make a noticeable difference when scaling 480p up to 720p or 1080i/p. And, of course, the display has to be able to accept 10bit video also. RGB is limited to 8bit video except with HDMI 1.3 and video processing that supports it (I don't know of any).
