Resurrecting this thread as I have now purchased a 55 inch Sony Bravia NX810 ... the newer one - 3D capable. I have followed all the same steps as the other TV mentioned above, yet the text displays poorly. Basically how it was displaying before I switched the *other* TV to "Game" mode (as per suggestions above). Doing that on the other television fixed the quality of text display perfectly but made everything dim. I then went into options and manually adjusted brightness and hue. With this TV, "Scene Select" Game mode does not fix the text display problem. This TV also has a "Document" mode for text display, but the text looks no different.
The only other difference is that, connected to this TV is a very small 13" Sony Vaio laptop with what I would assume is a far inferior video card. I am using HDMI-out on both the other system and this laptop.
The other TV is connected to a gaming system with a solid video card. Would that really play a role in the display of something as simple as text?
Video card specs on this laptop:
Processor: NVIDIA® GeForce® 9300M GS GPU with Total Available

While you are at it, you may also want to experiment in "Picture" settings again with DRC Mode turned back on and set to either Mode 1, then try Mode 2 (only available for 1080i format). Be aware though that DRC Mode is not available when Game/Text Mode is set to on.
I dont have a "DRC Mode" on this new television. Can someone tell me where to find the equivilent , or at least tell me what DRC stands for so I can make an educated guess from the existing menu items?
