One other thing to add. If you do watch a lot of sports, don't watch it in Movie/warm 2 mode. The realism of the picture is not quite up to par as it is in Standard/Standard mode. After watching sports/live news broadcasts in Movie/warm 2 for months on end, when I changed to Standard picture mode, standard color temp, the veil was lifted off the screen, and the realism of the event was right there in your face. It has made my sports watching/live broadcasts more enjoyable.
I'd adjust cell light based on your room lighting. It's also a personable adjustment. If you watch tv in a very dark room, like I do, you can set cell between 10-15 (in Standard Mode), or 15-20 in Movie mode, and be happy with the picture. Brighter rooms require higher cell light numbers, because the room lighting will make the screen look dimmer than it should. Background lighting is preferred for watching your tv. It will enhance the effect of the overall brightness of your tv, without having to max out your cell light setting, and will be easier for your eyes to focus. Standard Mode puts out more brighter picture than Movie mode does, so if you do decide to switch to Standard, you can get away with lower cell light values. Just adjust to personal preference. Whatever makes you happy. But definitely play around with the settings until you find a combination that you like. I still find myself tweaking my settings a little here and there (cell light mostly) when I watch certain programs and during different hours of the day. Some programs need more cell light to see more detail shading (fault of the broadcast channel), while others are too bright and reducing cell light makes it easier on the eyes to watch.
The calibrators typically don't start/adjust their calibrations in Standard mode on these sets because this mode is further away from the Rec 709 standard color space than Movie/warm 2 is, and also because the 10-pt setting is inactive in this mode. I thoroughly enjoy watching most programs now in Standard mode/Standard color temp than I ever did in Movie/warm 2.
