At the risk of repeating something that has already been asked and solved I am wondering what the best settings are for this TV, mainly for films and Xbox.

I really like the TV but want to know if I am getting the best out of it, I know these things are subjective but playing FIFA for example there is a lot of blur because of the speed and I was wondering if this could be reduced.

Also can you only edit the default picture settings i.e. Standard, Dynamic, Natural and Film or can you set up and save your own...seems like you should be able to.

So long story short, what are the best settings for film and xbox.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. Copying settings is not calibration, so you likely won't get much guidance in this area of the forum. Such presumed "shortcut" methods are a popular but persistent myth. Try a search in the flat panel area of the forum to see what fellow owners might recommend. This "sticky" thread from the "popular" collection at the top of this part of the forum explains why copying settings is unreliable:

'Sharing display menu settings?'

This link contains examples of copied settings actually ending up worse in some regards than factory preset picture modes:
