Every panel is a little different and it would definitely be worth while picking up a cal disk. DVE is less than $20 and worth having in your tool box.
I would think that all the power switching would mess up the CCFL much quicker than picking a level and setting it constant.
Stupid question, does setting energy savings to auto effectively reduce the lifespan of your backlight?
Being a glutton for punishment, I updated my set with the newest FW and it forsure fixed the SRS-surround problem. At first glance, it indeed looks like AMP was upped again, but with the ability to shut it off. I'll have to go into the SM and double check the number when I get a chance. I also noticed the wireless configuration setting now available. It was grayed out, but just for grins, I plugged in a wireless-g usb stick I had laying around. It didn't work. I...
Mine doesn't seem that bad and I have 2 huge inside dogs. I do wipe it down once a week when I do my normal house hold dusting, so I'm sure that helps.

I had the same problems with Podol's settings and it's what prompted me to do my own calibration. I did notice, during my color measurements, that this TV has a pretty significant green push in the yellow color. Reducing the amount of green in the color space didn't help, but adding more red to the primaries and secondaries seemed to relieve the green push. I really don't know why cnet went with such a low backlight setting. I guess they wanted that movie theater feel,...
Try raising your brightness a couple clicks. Brightness controls your blacks.
