very cool find jkc! thanks for the note on leankernel..
This makes sense though... the OEM peeps have it set so that the colors dont get the issue, but blacks do... they probably picked what they thought was the less noticable setting, which was to make the colors better and the arifacts visible in blacks.
I think they made the best decision, as most people are used to crappy video, and the artifacts are much less noticable on high quality video... but I would love to be able to have freedom to set it (gamma, color balance, etc).
I wonder cranking the gamma in the opposite direction would help some of those people with color banding issues ???
