don't "enhance contrast"
don't make "vibrant colors"
don't do "noise reduction"
don't crop it
don't make "motion more fluid"
@uint8_t This is my one and only whish! Spent a week messing with linux modelines after buying my first LCD TV only to discover the overscan is enabled on the TV.
@uint8_t I recall having read that new TVs can have / that some manufacturers agreed that they would all implement a "filmmaker" mode that does that to display the movie exactly as the filmmaker intended
@uint8_t ironically the easiest way to avoid this crap is to buy the cheapest no-name brand tv you can find.
@uint8_t I mean orginally they're intended for TV signals which are not exactly high resolution being displayed on like a 4k resolution. But yeah, when you want to do something else, the onboard proprietary software can be pretty shit...
@x44203 if it processes and enhances an analog low res signal, that can be excused but does it need to fiddle with a digital high-res input?
@uint8_t This is why I hung onto my CRT RPTV until like four months ago. I recently replaced it with a projector because projectors are mostly still just dumb monitors and don't do all that nonsense.
