I have been considering some type of room lighting in front of the set, behind the seating area so that the room isn't completely dark but not bright either. Also, some type of light that will not compete with the TV either. Any suggestions or recommendations?
Unfortunately, the 5679 doesn't have a dynamic iris and from what I have observed so far, that is NOT a good thing.
I believe the 5679 doesn't have an aperture to close too because the settings, even though they appear to 'work' in the Service Menu, do not seem to produce any significant changes in overall black level to the screen. The SB (or 'Source Black' <-I'm guessing here) does seem to control the sources black level to the screen but of course its lowest/darkest setting will only be as low/dark as the overall darkest black level output from the set.
I will be going back into the Service Menu to look around for any and all things pertaining to the LEDs but I don't recall seeing anything though.
