The Motion Lighting is turned OFF which IIRC is also the default. FWIW in the Movie mode it is turned OFF & grayed out so you cannot change it. I can turn it ON & experiment, but so far did not find another movie with credits of white text on a black background. I'm sure I can dig up something but ran out of time & it 's getting late.
I did experiment with Movie vs Standard modes. First I compared settings for the default Standard mode, my Standard mode, & to what I thought was the default Movie mode settings. Then watched some programs in Movie & thought they looked pretty close my Standard settings, which is not what I previously remembered. Turns out I had already changed the Movie settings so I reset them to the default & now the picture did look different than my Standard settings.
My basic settings for Standard mode are: Backlight 8, Contrast 75, Color 35, Color Tone Warm1.
I had decreased the Contrast from 100 to 75 in order to reduce a pinkish tint. Also made a few changes in the White Balance. Color was decreased from 50 to 35 while using the AVS709 disc & the Samsung’s RGB mode set to blue.
The default Movie mode has Backlight 20, Contrast 100, Color 50, Color Tone Warm2.
My roughly adjusted Movie mode had Backlight 10, Contrast 100, Color 50, Color Tone Warm1. Again, this looked pretty good.
But when I changed Movie to mimic my Standard they two did not look the same. Decreasing the Movie’s Contrast to 75 made the picture quite a bit darker, and decreasing the Color to 35 made the picture look a bit washed out. I'll have to use the AVS709 disc & see where it takes me. But so far the same settings in Movie & Standard do not display the same picture. I doubt the couple minor adjustments I did in the Standard White Balance make any appreciable difference.
Could there really be differences between the Picture Modes even with all the adjustments set the same?
