My PQ seems a little fuzzy with Verizon FiOS TV HD channels not sure what's going on there as well...
digitaltrance, the reason why the colors my seem to yellow or warm is because I have my set on Warm 2. You may want to try Warm 1 or Neutral and see if that works for you. Like I said my Pro Calibrated settings may not be for everybody and it all comes down to what you prefer and what looks good to your eyes. As for why your PQ seems fuzzy with Verizon FiOS TV HD you should try messing around with the Sharpness setting and see if that may clear things up.

Try Warm 2, Clear white set to High and R Gain -3(this setting needs fine tuning for your TV).

I found Warm 2, Clear white set to High and R Gain -3(XBR-46HX929) is the only way I can get rid of the red/yellow tint to all colors and it gives me crisp whites. My XBR-46HX929 settings can be found here Official Sony HX929 Settings & Calibrations Thread.

So MUGEN your applying your XBR-929 setting's to the W9? If true then that's interesting. But I will try your 2 settings on my tv and give you my thoughts.

I would only use the following settings on the W900A, as they are likely the same for most Sony TV's.

Brightness: 50
Color Temp: Warm 2
Sharpness: 56 for Video (65 for PC/PS3/PS4)
LED Dynamic Control: Standard
Clear White: High

Hey MUGEN I tried your 2 settings and in my opinion there was no difference in PQ then what it was set at before so I left the settings as they were. But I did set the Sharpness level at 56.

Have you tried changing Clear White from Off to High with a white or RGB colorband test image? You should notice the difference right away. I spent a lot time fine tuning the sharpness setting and found 56(same setting used on my 2006 XBR3) for General/Cinema and 65 Game/Graphics mode. The sharpness for the overall image is different with Scene mode General/Cinema and Game/Graphics.
