    Why not ask the question in the LCD TV forum. They frequently have threads about TV setups for all types of inputs.

    Well it depends on the tv and set up etc what the best settings are - it's best imho to google each setting and learn about it. You find quite a lot out that way!

    I'll tell you how i have mine and why-

    rgb full range: set to "limited", because set to "full" crushes the blacks and causes loss of detail in dark areas - different shades of black all just become one black lump.

    Cross colour reduction filter: ignore this, it only applies if you're using composite (yellow plug on av multi cable)

    y/pb/cr super white: on, i don't fully understand it, something to do with all video content being encoded in y/pb/cr thing, this only works if below setting is done i think

    bd/dvd video output format (hdmi): set to y/pb/cr, i'm no expert in this and my memory is patchy at best, but iirc it's something like games will output in rgb anyway, this setting is for blu ray and dvd. It was explained to me basically this should be set to y/pb/cr as that's how video content is encoded.

    That's how mine's set up anyway! :)

    I found the online instruction manual on the PS3 rather helpful. It's quite descriptive for each setting, I pretty much got all the settings sorted and it didn't take long at all.

    Does anyone have a link to a downloadable PDF version of this online manual? It would be handy to keep as a printed document for quick and easy reference.

    Hi,
    It is dependent on your display. If you have RGB Full on into a display that doesn't support it... you'll get some major 'black crush' going on. That said there are RGB tests you can download to check if your display is capable of displaying below blacks and above whites


    Cheers

    Not really - what can be easier than having a manual open in front of you, rather than clicking a browser on and off and waiting for pages to load, then flicking back to the xmb? Seems like a pain in the ass using the online guide, unless you have it open on a laptop next to you. And even then, it's still more of a pain in the ass than looking at a paper copy.

    I dunno. Maybe I'm just old-skool.

    Try these. With rgb set to full, if you can't make out any detail, then set it to limited. :smashin:
