Color and tint I left alone, bc I was able to get more natural colors using the color filters that came with the DVE disc, under the C.M.S advanced section.
What I watch, ( User settings ) most Blu-Ray use. I suppose depends on which movie it is. I personally don't notice much or any S.O.E with Film mode off, and Motion set to 120hz high. If I do notice any S.O.E, I turn 120hz to low or off. Again for *User mode
* R/ +15
* C/ +9
COLOR TEMP/ Middle, adjust to your liking.
I have it at 120hz high. I can't see any S.O.E on this setting. Again experiment to your liking.
* Film Mode*
* Digital noise reduction*
*Range of OPC*
On Dynamic, everything up there was copied. Except for the following settings.
** What I watch( Dynamic setting ), Sports, and regular tv, reality shows, etc. Also I really like how HD CGI, cartoons look with these settings( Blu-ray ). Blu-ray, movies not so good.
Also play single player games with noticeablr lag. For online I use my game mode settings.
Film mode digitizes some colors, but I'm pretty sure its my HD signal. Crappy roadrunner. In my area atleast. Again for my Dynamic, settings.
Game mode everything was copied again. As you know, all motion and film modes get turned off. I use game mode for all online gaming. I can tolerate( control lag), with motion and film mode on for single player.
Ps. Typing this on my phone, I apologize for any typos.
Overall, I don't think this is much of a sports tv. More of a movie tv. Balls do blur a lot on this tv. Baseball, football, you can see a halo of sorts around the balls. I'm sure hockey and golf are possibly worse. Movies on the other hand don't suffer much. I'm definitely more impressed on the movie side. Good blacks and whites and overall picture. My cable companies reception is pretty bad tho. Some channels are super bright. Sometimes they're so bright that I do get that dirty screen look. But its only with roadrunners inconsistent reception. I also forgot to add that I use my PS3 for Blu-Ray, and X-Box for most gaming and casual Zune HD movie rentals.
* Edit. I just found out my receivers up conversion may be causing sports balls to halo more than it should. I blame my reception again. I turned the up conversion off on my receiver and it was a bit better. Roadrunner sends top of the line 1080i video with crazy brightness levels. Possibly why I'm more impressed with blu-ray movies(1080p) rather than cable with this tv!
