Wow, I don't think I will ever run my set in Dynamic, that is like a TORCH mode. All settings are maxed out (well some of them). Hmm, it would make me scared to death. I think you are suppose to take it out of Dynamic mode for awhile to let the set settle in.
I used D-nice's settings. I loved them, my wife did not. So I went from his settings and adjusted slightly until we were both happy. His settings are a great starting point. I think I changed my color by 2, contrast by a few, and went to save 1 from save 2. Other then that, not much else. I changed each one, i.e. my game settings are completely different because the games I play (i.e. Oblivion) are bright as all get out, so I turn them down even more, turn down the color, etc. and I tweak per game if it gets to bad. My DVD settings are almost the same as regular TV but I think my brightness went up a couple more if I remember right. Not much different from D-nice's settings.
I would reconsider that Dynamic mode. Go to user and play with them. You can also run the Avia calibration. If you don't have that, some movies actually have a THX optimizer that worked pretty well, like Star Wars, etc.
You know, funny thing, I ran the THX optimizer from Finding Nemo, and it came back with the exact settings D-nice had. Guess that goes to show you, that guy knows his stuff.
