Would I have to make any adjustments in order to compensate for our rooms being at different levels of darkness?
No problem, I'm glad some or most of the settings were useful. As far as room brightness, I believe it's generally recommedned to adjust your backlight to match your room brightness. It shouldn't affect the black or white levels (brightness and contrast) or color balance (once you get those set) either way.

Yes, I'm super pleased with my settings watching 2D and 3D blu-rays, (though the only 3D blu-ray I have is the first Hobbit movie). I think I've found the sweet spot for my TV, give or take minor adjustments here and there.

But I'm a serial tweaker, and I'm always open to trying different settings that are posted here. I've been shamed on this forum into lowering my backlight (just kidding... I "lowered" it all the way down to 83 ) for regular viewing (which revealed a bit more detail), and for 3D settings I've recently tried lowering the brightness to 52 and raising the color a notch to 44. That's what I'm rolling with so far this week. And just watching a plain old DVD of The X-Files last night made my jaw drop a couple times (though that could have just been my reaction to seeing Gillian Anderson so perfectly contrasted and tinted in 1080p).

Is it possible to control the Vizio M651d-A2R through TCP/IP?

(Has anybody experimented at looking at the packets or figuring out if there is a hidden or public API?)

This is what I posted a while ago in the M401i-A3 Thread:

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=25721865

I am going to work on some touch-ups. Mostly with the White Balance Settings.

Unknown when I will get to this and post them.
