^^I own a xbr5/xbr8, both top of the line, lot of options are simular as HX929.
^^ this stuff is part of the setting menu because people like that, does not really improve things.
Not shure about Gamma, some say Sony Gamma should be set to 1.
LED Dynamic Control should always be set to Standard <- Local Dimming.
Don't now what Dot noise Reduction/ Smooth gradation does should be probably set to Off.
Picture Mode should be Cinema.
Sony Color Temperature is always set to Warm2 by pro's.
Display Area is Full Pixel when source is 1080p not shure bout 1080i/720p, should be set to Normal when watching SD.
RGB Dynamic Range should be set to Limited (video levels), Full is PC related (PC levels).
Film Mode(Cinemotion): on the xbr8 when watching Blu-ray Film Mode should be set to Auto1 or Auto2 (only difference is that Auto1 does some extra smoothing). On the HX909 this changed a bit so i don't know how Auto works on HX929, just check them out while watching a Blu-ray. Auto1/Auto2 xbr8 http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=349
Smoothing is Motion Interpolation related, i would turn off all smoothing. MotionFlow Clear is blackframe insertion which means in Sony's case that there is a Motion Interpolation(extra 'fake' frames) Black Frame mix, the Black Frame has a negative impact on PQ.
