I'm not sure what I did, but after trying the AVS disc, and adjusting settings more, I got the TV brighter and more to my liking. It is MUCH better, and its pretty close to where the W5100 looks . Maybe a little more tweaking, then again, it might be close enough now that I just stop and enjoy it.
On a side note, when I got the TV thursday at the Sony Store, the glasses were Buy One Get One but with 2 free pairs included, and thinking I wouldn't do 3d stuff, I didn't get any more. I also decided to THINK about the extended warranty rather than get it right then/there. Well, I decided yesterday to get the warranty since it wasn't that much for a little more protection, I also figured since I was going I might as well get two more glasses if they had the BOGO deal. They did. So I asked for the warranty and 2 pairs of glasses. When rang it up, the glasses were FREE!! So I managed to get a total of 4 pairs of the TDGBR250/B glasses free. I went back later and got another pair on the BOGO deal (for six pairs in all).
3d from the cable box (comcast) looks pretty neat. (watched the Amazing Spider Man and Finding Nemo). Now I guess I have to consider a 3d bluray player at some point.
