    I'd try them, one at a time and see what you think.

    I tried the settings when I first setup the console and contrary to popular belief around here I found the full range RGB to look hideously over saturated. Obviously my TV is not particularly an amazing set but for me it just looks worse when enabled. What I'm trying to suggest is try it yourself because there is no definitive view on the subject which is why these options are there in the first place, try and see.

    I have read on other forums that RGB Full results in a re-calibration of the colour spectrum in terms of numerical coding...

    ...I know, I know, stick with it....where basically the TV (which does NOT utilize FULL RGB) will read anything darker than a certain value as black. So it 'crushes' the black level or saturates it so everything looks dark and there is virtually no shadow detail.

    This may look good on a game but pretty awful on a movie. Unless you use a particular type of monitor, set RGB to limited.

    Cross colour reduction is only for video connections via composite or S-video; via HDMI is not affected.

    Here is a quote from a Home Theater review where some of this is explained...


    In the Display Settings menu, selecting RGB Full Range (HDMI) to Limited will ensure that the PS3 outputs proper black and white levels with HDMI-to-HDMI connections. If you’re using an HDMI-DVI breakout cable, Full might be necessary. In addition, setting Y Pb/Cb pr/Cr Super White (HDMI) to “On” guarantees that the PS3 outputs video information above white if present in the signal. For my setup, I used the Limited RGB Full Range setting and set Super White to On. This resulted in proper black and white levels (16 to 235) and allowed me to see information encoded below black and above white with a variety of displays capable of doing the same.

    I think the general consensus in the past has been to set RGB to Limited (not Full) unless you have an older TV.

    Dunno about all the others. Can't really tell the difference - so I'm not going to worry.
