I think the frame interpolation (soap opera effect) may well be

The download worked for my UQ17U model -- it seemed to hang

Change the backlight control -- maybe turn it off or down.
I use the AquoMotion 240, but another setting might work for you.
Film Mode can cause artifacts on some sources as well.

It's not Quattron, so far as I know. It's 120 Hz compared to the
Q+ 240 native refresh and the UQ17U has better brightness
