OK, so two settings moved my experience from unwatchable to acceptable. Motion enhancement:High & 3D brightness backed off maximum by 1 step. This is better.

I hate motion smoothing, but the...

Thanks for the reply back. I just want to give it it's fair shake. I'd hate to look like a hater when in fact my implementation is flawed. ^_^ Appreciate the feedback.

What settings are you using for 3D? I've thus far found it an underwhelming experience with extremely noticeable crosstalk (Particularly panning and fast motion like arms flailing). If I sit too...

I shouldn't talk for Dennis, but I would think he'd say no room is perfect, period. He's been helpful enough around the forum over the years that I've found his persnickety nature endearing at this...

It's more than that though. It's HT, not multi-channel, vs 2 channel. Heck, I like my speakers behind an AT screen. That's a sin right there! :)

I had been quiet, but I got a new projector a month ago so that caused a spike in activity. LOL. (Sony VLP 40es) But that's a different part of the site.

I did too. And actually, critically it runs at about 45-50% out of 100%. Not that great, but far, far, from worst ever territory. ^_^

Have you had a chance to throw up test patterns or best case scenario material? I know we sort of went over this before, but it would help with a logical progression/deduction.
