I have been using mythtv for about a month now and love it. My HDTV recording and playback is awesome.
However my PVR-150 (after many hours of experimentation) has faded colors (not enough saturation). Colors are either too dark or
too pastel. I found that increasing the bitrates and using a video amplifier make the picture even less noisy (it was already
pretty clear)(this is cable tv by the way). But no help to the colors. I am running the 75 ohm cable right into the PVR-150 and
have tried this with no splitters and *with* splitters. It doesn't make much difference and sending this signal to my vcr, rca-pvr,
or tv looks fine.
And if I crank the "color" setting on the television it looks pretty much perfect until I switch to other TV inputs and I have to
set the TV back to normal which I don't want to have to do.
1) Is this a problem with all PVR-150s or just mine? (I saw another person post the same problem with a pvr-150 a few weeks ago)
Can I fix this buy buying a pvr-250?
2) I could have sworn I saw some kind of color correction feature in Mythtv but after looking for it
for an hour I can't find it now. Is there some way to have a recording or playback profile that increases
the color saturation?
