What is the recommended setting for HDMI? Auto,Standard or Enhanced?
Just make sure you're not mistaking black crush for better black level. You should not loose shadow detail. If your source is outputting enhanced, what you describe seeing when setting the RS20 to standard may be black crush. If there are features visible when viewing in enhanced that disappear into the blackness when viewing in standard I think the video level is not matching.
I hope that makes some semblance of sense. It's late an I'm tired.
EDIT: The recommended settings depend on what your source is set to. Just make sure they match. Some go after whiter than white and blacker than black but I recommend just getting the levels agreeing first and then you can learn about WTW and BTB later and figure out whether the advantages out weight the disadvantages.
