I do. On my 2 650 sets and my current 750, all 3 sets ended up with Color 52 and Tint 50/50, and all 3 on multiple firmware versions. I'll also be playing with a friend's new 52a650 this weekend, and I expect the same result.
Same here. I used the Blue Mode and the THX Optimizer on the Incredibles DVD to set the color at 53, Tint at 50/50. I tried zerog6's settings for both Standard and Movie, but ended up preferring only his Backlight, Contrast and Gamma settings. I had the same yellowing experience as studdad with zerog6's White Balance settings, so I set them back to default. I will note that the THX Optimizer is only marginally reliable, as the same movies when "THX" calibrated don't look half as good as when using the settings from this thread!!!
Oh, I have an LN52A750 running the 1007 firmware with all "enhancements" turned off (black adjust, , dynamic contrast, energy savings, etc...).
All said and done, this set still looks FANTASTIC! I can't believe how smooth the colors are on the Pixar DVDs! I can't wait 'till Blu-ray 2.0 players appear so I can take that leap!
