I know what you are saying dallows, and sorry for jumping on you. I'll feel better when I watch tv tonight. With all the variables involved, it is likely there are enough starting points that could attain near the same results. A pro calibrator and I are at odds on another site and we will NEVER agree on many things I talk about. First I say Dynamic Contrast IS an absolute must. The trade-offs with Edge Enhancement and Sharpness at a 100 are worth their usage as well. This drives me nuts as he doesn't have the tv in front of him and is basing his argument on past experience, and he can't get it through his head that I shut down these features for watching Blu-Ray. I will go as far to say his ego will prevent him from even trying my settings. Gee, we take things so personal!
Anyways, great to communicate with you and thanks sincerely for your interest.
