I just got this screen and I was wondering what is the best visual mode to set my screen at.

RGB

YCbCr

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! :)

well, I think it's got something to do with proper color separation.

I'm not perfect on the technical details... but I can tell this...
Dunno if your PS2 is as annoying as mine (PAL), but mine gives a green screen in DVD movies with RGB (through SCART), some sort of lame Sony copy protection. Dunno why they did it, but basically it means that if I want the best picture quality I have to buy a separate DVD player.
I could use Svideo instead, which is almost as good as SCART (=RGB), but almost isn't just as good =P ...maybe the Svideo signal is YCbCr, either way it doesn't give a green screen on DVD movies... but I have the PS2 for games and want them to look as good as possible, and not trade that in.... so I'll just be getting a decent DVD player sometime in the future.

Anyway, maybe someone else is better on the technical side - I'm probably mixing a few things up.

Also, you live in the US, right? and with that joytech screen, maybe it doesn't even make a difference. Do you see a difference when you switch?

here's some technical blah about it... http://tig.colorist.org/wiki2/index.php/Bit_Discussion
