How to configure “Reference Level” on Xbox 360

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

I just purchased a Xbox 360 Elite and was presented with the question of how should I configure the screen’s “Reference Level” on the Video configuration menu of the Xbox 360.

The Reference Level of the 360 is similar to the PS3’s RGB Full Range option. As I said on that article, most HDTVs only support a limited range of black to white, for that reason, most people with HD Televisions should have it set to Standard, and people with PC monitors should set it to Expanded, but just as I said in my article about Full RGB, the best course of action is to test it and select the proper setting for your TV or Monitor.
