I tried that setting while im watching the Mets/Phillies game in HD on ESPN and with the standard settings i get a much lighter and more washed out picture then with my cinema settings which are tweaked slightly to my liking from toms settings. Standard mode gives me a whole lot of visible noise especially noticeable when they zoom out and show shots of the night sky.
I just wish there were other modes with such a clear and crisp picture as cinema. I sometimes find myself switching to game or custom mode when watching really colorful stuff on the National Geographic and Discovery channel during the day time. But as soon as black scenes are introduced into the picture i notice that cinema mode is far superior.
