I’m still a touch confused on if I should be setting my Black Level setting on my LG B6 OLED to “High” when feeding it the OSSC.
The Black Level setting on the LG B6 is a Pixel Format setting where, from my understanding, Low = Limited Range, and High = Full Range.
If the OSSC is outputting RGB Full Range 4:4:4, should I be setting the TV to High? I feel like this is the correct option, however the colors do look a touch “lighter”, more washed out. They don’t look terrible once leaving the setting on the TV to “High” for a while and getting used to it.. but going back to black level “Low” on the TV gives a more vibrant look.
I know some people say the “Low” setting could cause crushed blacks, but when running my N64 through the OSSC to my TV I don’t perceive any noticeable black crush. Just a punchier, more saturated image.
What do you folks use for RGB format/Pixel Format (whatever your specific TV might be calling it) when feeding the OSSC?
The OSSC has the Test pattern to test for this. Since firmware 0.80 it has a 32 step grayramp to notice crushing more easily.
I notice the image that’s shown right when the OSSC turns on, is this what you’re referring to, or is there another option in the menu to bring up a test pattern? The grey test pattern when I first turn on the OSSC doesn’t look like the 32 step grey ramp patterns I”m used to seeing.
