HP w2408h saturation problems - NEED HELP PLEASE

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so i bought an HP w2408h and i'm using it for 1080p with my PS3, the picture is stunning & i love everything about it except one thing, the saturation. I need to squeeze more color out of this beast as reds only look red, not bright how i like them. Same with every other color, its pretty dissapointing to have such a clear picture with such dull saturation. I like my picture to be live and vibrant, but i cant find a way to tweak the saturation anywhere in the menu!

Theres a 9300 K color option and its defaulted at 6500 K, but even when i go to custom color all it has is the adjustment bars for Red Blue & Green, im dieng here! If this thing was used as a computer monitor i could just bump up the Nvidia digital vibrancy but it was bought for the sole purpose of 1080p with my PS3. I put over a grand into this set up & i cant beleive such an expensive top notch monitor would lack such a feature... doesn't seem right.

If anyone out there has this monitor or even has the same problem, please lend any hand u can as im in dire need of some help. I've searched google up & down and no luck.

Thank you, rep+ to helpers!

If your HP is like the one I'm getting. It doesn't have a processor to adjust that stuff. They only thing I can think of is to get a tuner card then adjust it with your video card. The problem here is the hdmi tuner cards are upwards of $200, from what I've seen. The only one I know of is the BlackMagic - Intensity.

I'm hoping they come down in price soon. I'll be needing one too.

i have the same monitor. There should be an option in the CD that installs the drivers, that allows you to adjust that stuff.
