    hey all!

    i have been fiddling around with my hd-ax2 and was wondering what the optimal settings would be.

    for my 427xd display i was wondering what settings i should have for:
    enhanced black level; rgb output range and picture mode.

    currently i have it set as follows
    black level OFF, RGB range STANDARD and picture mode AUTO.

    what difference is there between standard and enhanced for rgb range and what does the picture mode do?

    i have a pio ax4 amp set for 5.1, the player is attached to this via hdmi.
    should i just accept the default audio settings?

    sorry for all these questions, i'm a hd-dvd newbie!

    thanks,
    Rowan

    Hi mate :)
    'Digital Direct Audio Mode' when enabled will send HD audio direct to a compatible amp so the decoding can be done there,instead of in the player. :smashin:
