On a real source I don't think in_color_matrix=bt601 would be correct.

in_range=full:out_range=tv IIRC failed testing with color src (I guess
it already scaled) but would be correct (and default anyway) for real

Don't test with color src - use something real and you  may see different.

Works but color is special and of course it "breaks" the sd version.
