YCbCr is native DVD format

As explained in this thread, YCbCr is native format to DVD (as 4:2:0).  Therefore that is usually the default default HDMI format choice for DVD player.  Some displays originated with RGB format and work better with RGB format HDMI.

With YCbCr, the menu option in Denon 2910 for "extended blacks" does nothing, since no mapping to another format is being done.  I was wondering why it seemed to do nothing.

I'm currently checking all my 3 displays with Video Essentials.  Blacker-than-black was visible on all of them.
