Optimal PS3 picture settings with Sony KDL-40V3000 LCD TVPosted: January 6, 2008
I have just been setting-up a Sony KDL-40V3000 LCD HD television with a Sony PS3 console. After some research on the web, mainly centered around this excellent article. I am after settings for optimum picture quality when playing DVDs and Blu-ray discs (BDs). I thought it woud be helpful to share my findings here, in the hope I can save people some time.
What follows represents the settings in the PS3 settings (system software 2.10)…
Settings > Display Settings > RGB Full Range (HDMI) = Full
(as the KDL-40V3000 does have a 10-bit processor)
Settings > Display Settings > Cross Color Reduction Filter = Off
(as using HDMI and doesn’t apply here)
Settings > Display Settings > Y Pb / Cb Pr / Cr Super-White (HDMI) = On
(will this take effect in RGB mode?)
Settings > BD / DVD Settings > Cinema Conversion = On
(as the KDL-40V3000 definitely supports progressive scan)
Settings > BD / DVD Settings > DVD Upscaler = Double Scale
(as running at 1080p and this setting won’t distort the image)
Settings > BD / DVD Settings > BD/DVD Video Output Format = Automatic
(and see what it chooses!)
Settings > BD / DVD Settings > BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI) = On
(as the KDL-40V3000 supports this)
That’s the theory, now to test each one from this setting, one at a time. If I find anything that can be improved upon, I’ll write again.
At the time of writing, you can get help regarding this on Sony’s site here.
I will be looking at sound settings at a future date, probably in Q2 2008. Why not subscribe to my RSS feed to keep posted?
