According to Grimmy's settings you can use Game Mode and Warm 2 at the same time. Unfortunately the US model cannot do this.
I'm running the 450 in Movie mode for shows with Nutdot's settings, and it looks great for TV shows and Movies. It's lacking for sports and gaming though. One of the problems is the 16x9 doesn't fill the entire screen and I think the resolution is downscaled with those settings. Zooming in the picture quality is reduced.
Now given that, when running in Game Mode, you can run 16x9 resolution fullscreen - which really helps for sports.
Anyone with the US model have some Game Mode settings for Sports and Games? Seems like the Movie Mode is best for just shows and movies. Also has anyone had any luck with running Game Mode with Warm 2 and Grimmy's settings with a US model 450/490, maybe with a firmware update?
Sorry for the long rant, but hopefully we can get some discussion going.
I am confused on what you are asking in regards to the 16x9 not filling the screen. What source/content are you referring to when it doesn't fill the screen? Blu-ray? If so, blu-rays aren't 16x9 so there will/should be black bars on the top and bottom.
Movie mode is "best" for everything. What I mean by that, is that it is the closest to "spec". If you want something brighter (or I will guess cooler/more blue) then change the color temp and find a setting you like. Cause at that point, "spec" is thrown out the window. And it is your TV so watch it how you want to
