My New M401i-A3 Settings / Possible Bug?
Yeah, after watching, comparing and adjusting to a brighter punch, I came up with this on my M401i-A3:

Note: These settings are for my Off-Axis viewing. Colors, Brightness, and Contrast will be a little more intense for straight-on viewing. My only calibration tool: My eyes.
Auto Brightness Off
Backlight 80 (50-80 as needed or Auto Brightness on High)
Brightness 45 (40-50, Source/Content Dependent.)
Contrast 65 (68 and above turns the bright whites into a pinkish tint.)
Color 60 (50-60 Source/Content Dependent.)
Sharpness 0 (Source/Content Dependent. Old Films 25-100)
Color Temp Normal
Black Detail Low
Not-So-Smart Dimming OFF :) (Lots of differing opinions/preferences with this one.)
Motion Blur Off (Undecided - More Testing Needed.)
Reduce Signal Noise Off (Sometimes 'Low' for Analog Signals.)
Reduce Block Noise Off (Did not test yet to see if I want it on.)
Film Mode Auto
Pro Picture Settings:
Default for now. I shall try URSA's Pro Settings along with my above settings.
Note: For my Sepia Tone Setting, I have the above Custom setup mirrored to another except I have Color at 0 and in the Pro Picture Settings, I have the Blue Offset and Gain at -25. Changing anything in Pro, however, will be in all other Custom settings on the given Input - I think... see the following 'Bug' note.)
I did a test on another Input (Cable) where I first setup URSA's settings. I chose one of the Preset settings, made a one digit change to create another Custom Setting. Upon checking my URSA setup in the Pro Settings, I lost the Offset and Gain setup! They were back to zeros! The Brightness setting remained (0, -39, and -50) for the RGB. [For my Firmware version, see my signature below.]
