    Hi all! Reading some post it is understandable that most of us use Limited range option. My personally opinion is that with full range i can see too dark pictures (during darkest scenes) but at the same time an image (i seems) more define (during light normal screen) than limited range.
    My question is: if hdr technology use wide gamma, why we are forced to miss it? Where is precisely the problem? In zidoo box? In sources (movies)?

    What's the actual problem ? You use the one that works better for your TV.

    Yes, i would to use full range, but in darkest scene it's too dark: indistinguishable bands of colors

    Edit: maybe, between possible causes i should have insert bad tv calibration? in essence I would a comparison of opinions

    Hi all,

    With my tv sony (X930C) I have to use the "limited" because the Sony TV is not compatible with the Full range.

    Confirm by wesk05 (on Kodi forum) and also by the specs of my TV.

    see you

    I could see a good improvement setting Full Range and on tv Level Black: High

    RGB Full Range normally should be used only when real (professional) calibration of the TV/Projector setup is done.
    Of coarse everybody may use what suits the best.

    What i know is that fhd bluray and UHd are recorded with limited range so if you are playing back movies, you should setup limited range

    Full range is really only used when connecting a PC. Most console games and pretty much all movies and tv shows are mastered with limited range.
