On the EH6000 I had, Custom was best (BR 10 and JR 0).
What are people using to gauge their AMP settings?
What I did to test both blur and judder reduction was to set start & endpoints for a repeating segment of video on my dvd player.
I saw the most dramatic AMP results when watching animation, so that's what I used, in a scene where there was movement from left to right.
When I adjusted the judder, a piece of foreground "scenery" would be affected. With judder at zero, it would look blurry. When judder was set to ten, it would look like this part of the scenery was a cardboard cutout moving independently from the rest of the image (very dramatic and "3d", for lack of a better word). Any numbers between zero and ten would produce a predictable difference. I mean the blur simply got less and less until there was none at ten.
Every once and a while there would be a "skip" in the smoothness. But this was present using all settings above zero. There didn't seem to be less frequent "skips" based on the judder setting.
On the other hand, I couldn't notice any difference when adjusting blur.
What should I be looking for? It seems like everyone is doing the opposite of my settings.
I don't understand the 5:5 pulldown comment. I checked the wiki article so I have an understanding of pulldown, but I am lost as to how this translates to AMP settings.
