I don't know about your specific display and color reproduction?  One thing is for sure, if your dedicated player using the disc and your file setup look identical, and you have taken your AVR out of the equation, your display settings are at fault.  I assume you are not using long cables?  If you are, temporarily move your HTPC and/or your dedicated player, or your display closer to each other and use ANY cable 6' or under to test.  If it improves, it's your longer cables.  If it doesn't, it's your display settings.
Thanks brazen1!

I tried having both Close and Exit be Alt+F4, but MPC-BE did not seem to like this and highlighted one of them and did not let me save the settings.  I will try other keys for both Close and Exit, that do not involve Ctrl or Alt, just in case the behavior of my Harmony Ultimate is not correct.

What device are you using for the keyboard in your Harmony configuration?

I do have a 15 ft cable going from my AVR to my TV, so testing with shorter cables is something I will try and see the results.  I recently ordered new cables which have the certified premium label and are listed in the HDMI site.  Once I have them I will test and post my results.

Thanks again,

Bart
