HDMI BLACK LEVEL
low - 'limited range' 16-235 RGB source (some game consoles, media extenders, etc can be set to this)
normal - 'full range' 0-255 RGB source (usually only game consoles and pc's use this range)
greyed out - YCC source(not RGB) ('standard' video format found on many dedicated a/v gear and legacy products)
basically you want to make sure all your RGB sources are the same. either full range or limited, and then set the hdmi black level to the matching setting. it's ok if you mix YCC and rgb sources, the tv will automatically adjust between the two. for example, my cable box is YCC, i have my game consoles and htpc set to full range. when i watch cable, thte setting is grayed out and when i watch my htpc, it returns to the 'normal' setting automatically. both sources have the correct 'black level'.
cinema smooth is ONLY available for 24hz content
i believe film mode is greyed out for all 60hz content. not 100% sure, but mine is greyed out every time i send it 60p
one of the settings is for 60p sources that have been changed to 30, the other is for 24p sources that have been changed to 30. i never remember which one is which, but i only have 60p and 24p sources, so it never comes up for me anyway.
like hdmi black level, this is a source dependent setting. basically if you watch blurays with 24p playback, decide whether you prefer CS on or off. set it to your preference, and leave it. when not watching blurays(or 24p content) it will automatically default back to your last setting, or 'off' and grayed out for 60p content. caution, if you turn on cs, and then turn it off, the tv will secretly turn on motion judder canceller. so you have to turn MJC on, and then off again. you only have to do this if you turn CS off, not every time it automatically changes when it detects a non-24p source.
