Different values in Expert 1 and 2 conflict with each other! That's right; you heard it here! As an experiment for all those calibrators at heart - put the exact same values for everything in BOTH Expert 1 and 2. After each calibration, complete or not - move the values from what ever Expert Mode you're in to the other. Since starting this method, the values migrate far less from the last calibrating session. I have not completed my current session as of yet, but CMS values are all at Zero (Still no time to get to this), Energy Saving is now Off, the Dynamic Contrast is now Off as well, and White Balance is back to Warm. (White Balance is usually personal preference but you can't calibrate with it on Cool, only Warm!) See if this doesn't stabilize your settings. Just my 2 cents for now - just waiting for the TV to warm up and back to checking my theory out more.

Please insert the following settings in BOTH Expert 1 and Expert 2
My PQ by having Expert 1 and 2 cloned is not bad with these settings!
If you change ANYTHING in either of the Expert Modes, it affects the PQ in the other!
Try and see if the above Theory doesn't work for you.
If you try any other settings you find, make sure to duplicate in BOTH Expert Modes.
Let values settle in for a half to full hour to get the final viewing results
Installed these settings in the July build in Expert 1 and 2 - the November build seems to be a tad better.
Will see if it passes the Wife Test tonight!?
