| | Re: External display number of colors
connect your PB to a monitor or TV via a micro HDMI to HDMI cable.
set your PB to mirror mode (default)
look at the background picture:
in the PB screen the color gradient from blue to red has no stripes.
on my TV, there are stripes. Look at the icon of the browser and compare this to the icon displayed on the PB screen.
I have not checked what happens if you set the display mode to presentation, because, if I watch a movie which is rendered using flash you cant use the presentation mode. Therefore the external display is blank in this situation.
But, in mirror mode the difference is obvious. Just go into the PB settings application and, look at the brown bar on the left side, compare that to what you see on the TV/Monitor.
