Thank you for responding. I realize copying settings is a crap-shoot and isn't going to be the same for everyone. I've been in contact with Doug Blackburn recently about a professional calibration, but it will be a little while for me. With that said, since the Kuro has a specialized "sport" setting. I wanted to cater it to only sports programming, so I could use it for only sports. I didn't need everything, I was curious which "Pro settings" would be best to turn on/off and change and brightness/color starting points as well. Because Optimal looks ok, sport looks awful, pure looks dull and so does movie. I didn't want to fiddle with pure or movie though because I spent a long time kind of catering them to my tastes for blu-ray.
