Lots of rental discs are stripped down and don't have the HD audio track. Sucks

The Blu-ray disk probably has audio several tracks. The default one may not be the 7.1 track. Go into audio setup on the Blu-ray and see if you can select the Atmos track.

Built in screen wipe doesn't do much. Pixel flipper from the "Wow" disc and similar tools will work better.

Good plan. Also keep in mind that the longer the panel was abused the longer it will take to even it out, but I think this will quickly become harder to notice.

Agreed. No idea why it would ever be desirable at the OS/Driver level. I can see in player apps having such an option, but never as part of the graphic driver settings. Sheesh.

I believe I set it to limited RGB and did the same for my home theater PC. My HTPC outputs flashing bands appropriately from levels 17 to 234 so what ever I did it works :-)

On my S720W use volume typically between 50-60. Rarely lower than 45 and I've never gone higher than 65. Since the AVR could go up into the 90s I don't have concerns. :)

A lot depends on what you will be using the computer for. If it's just "HTPC including media server" you don't need anything special and the overclocking won't be worth the effort.
