Just got my 55HX929. After fiddling with the settings on a number of BD's as well as using Wow and Spears & Munsil, I have come up with the follow settings (night). The only thing that is sort of out of whack compared to most of the posted settings is the WB - my set seems to have a green push where it appears that most of the others had the opposite issue. At any rate, the picture looks pretty fabulous using my Oppo BDP-83 in source direct mode.

I fine-tuned the WB controls using a couple B&W BD movies.
A question I have ( a poll of sorts) for a sanity check. In The Fifth Element, what shade of blue does the planet Floston appear in the background during the Diva singing scene? pure blue or does it have a slight cyan/aqua tint? Also what shade does Earth appear in the opening before the Egypt scene?
In my case, Earth is the perfect shade of blue I would expect. Floston seems to have the slightest cyan push. The sky in the opening Egypt scene seems the correct shade of blue as well.
A friend's Kuro had the same color cast on Floston, although we thought it needed a calibration touchup due to a slight green push in light neutral tones, so I wasn't sure I was believing what I saw there.
BTW, my set has a build date of Nov 2011. My friend with the Kuro also has a Klein K-10 and Calman SW, so at some point I'll get him over to make some measurements. My Samsung B7000 looks like crap in comparison to the 929, too
