I was curious about the variations in the "Picture" modes - Auto/Standard/Dynamic/Cinema - on my 7UY and noticed something kind of weird while messing around with it.
If I customize the settings to the same parameters (Picture, Brightness, Color, Sharpness, Color Temp, Gamma, etc.) on both Standard and Dynamic modes for the component input (going to my cable STB) there is no discernable difference in the picture - the picture in both modes look identical.
However, if I do the same on the S-Video input there is a noticeable difference even with identical settings on Standard and Dynamic. Not a tremendous difference, but one nonetheless - a subtle vibrancy on Dynamic as compared to Standard.
Anyone know why this is so? Thanks.
I just noticed something else, hence the edit. If I leave the advanced settings in the menu to off, I do notice a slight difference in the Standard and Dynamic modes using identical primary settings as described above. If I turn on the advanced settings in both Standard and Dynamic menus (with identical default parameters) any visual difference in modes is not perceivable. Of course when the advanced settings are off I can't see what the parameters are, but they must be different for each mode.
