ISF-AUTO, use D-Nice Day with the following changes:
CONTRAST 38-43 (In one post) 43 (In other post)I'll try 43.
Sharpness Around -7 or so (In one post) 0 (In other post)
Which SHARPNESS did you settle on?
Do you use the COLOR & LIGHT SENSOR?
Yes.... I use both the color and light sensor. Based on other posts, I've lowered the contrast in ISF-Auto from my original 43 down to 41 however I don't see any real difference but have left it at 41. Maybe a little change but hard to tell if the whites are "less crushed" to my eyes.
I also lowered the ISF-Auto color from 8 to 5 based on other recommendations as well. Once again, not a big difference but slightly noticeable (in a good way).
I currently have sharpness at 0 for ISF-Auto but once again very little if any difference to me from -7 to 0 however there is a modestly noticeable difference between -15 and 0 in sharpness.
I've kept brightness at +1. I kept ISF-Day and Night true to D-nice's original settings for a 151. I applied these Day settings to Auto and made the changes above plus I changed Cinema from Advanced to Smooth. To my eyes the change in the cinema mode between Advanced and Smooth is the biggest change from my perspective, at least for cable tv. I keep Advanced on ISF Day and Night for watching Blu-ray.
Once again, ISF auto is nice to have as a "customized to your preferences" version of D-nice's original settings. Try experimenting and finding different values that make the picture better from your perspective. I find its good to watch an evening before making further changes to see how you like the settings against various different programming.
This is one of the nice advantages of having CC for making these types of adjustments and experimenting to get the best possible picture quality from "your" perspective.
