The rtings settings were for a different model M, and are based on year-old firmware. The link that
was kind enough to post are based on the latest ( 220.127.116.11 ) available firmware. There isn't a specific calibration for watching sports. The whole point of calibrating is to get your TV to accurately produce grey scales and colors that match with the original source, and the performance standards of studios, mastering houses, and broadcast networks. Sports will look great with these settings, and the M series is notable for having great motion performance. You could use my calibration settings, and then if you still feel the need to improve motion handling, you could turn on "Clear Action" and bump up the backlight to 100. You might want to have two custom picture modes; one for watching movies and regular TV, and the other for watching sports. That way you can easily switch back and forth between the two modes. The only difference would be turning on "Clear Action" and turning up the backlight for the "Sports" mode.
Turning on Clear Action will dim down the TV as it inserts black frames to smooth things out, which is why you need to crank the backlight.
Let me know if you decide to try my settings. Feedback is welcome.
EDIT: I added the below HDR-10 settings details to that calibration link:
Basic Settings - Same as Rev 5 except:
Offset: R: -6, G: 1, B: 0
Gain: R: 7, G: 2, B: -17
All other settings leave at zero
Leave all at zero
