OK so after a couple days with my TV, these are the settings I have settled on for now. These may change slightly as I tweak things but this should provide a good starting point to set everything to when you take it out of the box. Keep in mind my TV is the 75" 7150 and may be different than other sizes. Mine is a TS01 panel, as I believe all the 75" versions are.
I used both the WOW disk and the Spears & Munsil Disk. I noticed the S&M disk gave me different calibrated Color and Tint values than the WOW disk, so I did all my calibrations with the WOW disk and just cross checked things on the S&M disk. The WOW disk is all you really need.
Picture mode Standard
Backlight 10 (I have the ability to make my viewing room extremely bright all the way to pitch black but 10 seems to be fine for all of it. 7 is the lowest I can go or it starts to look dingy, and above 14 I think is too bright. This TV has a powerful edge light and doesn't need to be maxed out at 20 ever. Also, lowering my backlight prevents flashlighting/clouding)
Contrast 97 (95-100 is good but I can actually see a difference between each step and 97 is the sweet spot)
Brightness 53 (Too much here and it will wash out the black areas)
Sharpness 20 (on the test disk I like 0 sharpness, but in practical usage viewing DirecTV 1080 content 0 looks a little soft in the details but text looks good. I bump it up somewhere between 15-40
Dynamic Contrast High (In real viewing situations, it just makes the blacks better without overly crushing shadow details.
Black Tone Darker (Same as above, you really just have to view some content and switch the options and see what looks best to you.)
Flesh Tone 0
RGB Only Mode Off
Color Space Native
White Balance (haven't fine tuned this yet so all default)
Motion Lighting Off
