    Does anyone know what .ICC color profile the Apple TV is outputting via HDMI?
    Perhaps sRGB IEC61966-2.1 or Adobe RGB (1998)?

    I would like to hope that it adheres to the HD and SD standards of Rec.709 and Rec.601, but they probably just choose one for both HD and SD.

    According to my Edge, the ATV2 is outputting 24-bit YCbCr 4:4:4 at Rec. 709 no matter what the source or output resolution. I don't get any additional information if RGB High or Low are chosen.

    Yep, I assumed that's what they would do, use the HD standard of Rec.709 for both HD and SD.

    Sorry I mean my DVDO Edge video processor, which the ATV2 is passing through. It gives slightly more info on the signal than my other components do!
