For example: I stupidly hit the HDMI calibration under ADC/WB. It messed up my color and contrast pretty bad and it said failure next to HDMI calibration. Factory Reset did nothing to fix it. I found the settings it changed and reverted it to the the original by looking at the pictures here. I finally was able to fix it 100% by displaying the correct 8x8 checker board pattern on my PS3 while connected to HDMI 1 and running the HDMI calibration again. Finally it said success again next to HDMI calibration.

Have you tested the DLNA and WIFI features?
I did this too.
However, I found that it's actually a good idea to manually fine-tune those settings.
My calibrated grayscale looks even better after I did this.
Not if the factory settings weren't nice but there was either a very mild black or white crush whatever contrast/brightness setting I tried.
I used nothing else but a full-screen 0% black image. I started from 255-155-255-0-0-0 and I lowered the first three values until the black became black.
The only thing I am not sure about if the last three values should be risen until black would go off again or it should be kept at 0-0-0. But black starts to become gray at 3, so I the valid limit is [0;2], and it doesn't make any noticeable change on the gray gradient if I set it to 2, so I kept it at 0.
-> I talked about the RGB (PC) mode settings here, I didn't mess up the YCC mode yet. May be the YCC mode acts differently and I don't feel the need to readjust these settings for that mode.
I will probably set the RGB settings to 128x8 in the SM and use the 10p system only, because I couldn't figure out how to change the picture mode while the SM is active, and it's useless to set up the RGB Gains in the SM while it's in the Dynamic mode, the Movie mode will act differently (I tried).
And I will consider to use the Movie mode for games too because the RGB mode is not too nice. It shows some very noticeable colorizations on the grayscale, however it doesn't feel too slow. (I wouldn't play CS:S with it but I don't play that a long time ago.)
It will be funny to do the 10p grayscale and gamut calibration without a nice GUI like CalMan, but I need the adaptive sensor mode for my colormunki, so I will use ArgyllCMS and copy the measurements to my excel sheet for visualization.
I'm still unable to try this because I don't have a second HDMI source.
I was thinking of making an HDMI dummy plug that folding at home folders use to trick their graphics cards into thinking that there is a monitor plugged in, but I don't know if it will work and I'm afraid of frying something in my TV.
So Anynet doesn't work with this? Damn I love that feature.
