It will be interesting to see how these new PC settings thru the eyes of the WOW disk ...
Welcome to the forum and to the Sharp 640U family
WOW disc is a neat calibration DVD that allows some basic by eye picture adjustments, particularly in sense of brightness and contrast and to a point overall saturation; but it can never substitute or come close to an actual/real calibration with a spectrometer and calibration software, which is how I calibrated my set, and how I arrived at those settings. Accordingly, I am glad they worked out for you as well (note that transferred settings normally do not transfer completely "perfectly" between sets, as each set is slightly different, but the settings should be generally in the ballpark and sometimes close to "perfect").
To your question about the RGB low and high values, they are for calibration of the gray-scale (high being for light grays and low for dark grays). This is one of the most important aspects of calibration as it creates properly balances grays that are your basic "canvas" of any TV image. When you take color down to zero, what are you left with? It's the grayscale (black&white) image. That image needs to be balanced in RGB values first (i.e. not pushing red or green or blue but being balanced for "perfect" grays and a perfect white) so that the applied color on top of it comes out right, the dark and light details look good, etc. These are the kind of things a WOW disc cannot help much... Hope this helps you some and enjoy your new TV
Btw, the PC mode is closer to the movie mode and still has some SOE. I prefer the game mode instead, which is the only mode without fancy motion handling that creates unnatural motion, sound sync issues, etc...
