I don't know about a exact comparison between Custom Mode and ISF mode, imo those two modes are a little different..

Because most in this thread don't have the equipment to do a good calibration. For reference settings (controlled lighting, dim) warm 1 is probably a easier setting to work with, but for high contrast settings then yes Natural is better.

I have had my VT-50 65” for about 2 weeks. I have adjusted settings and the PQ is spectacular.
The crazy thing is I need to keep the sharpness setting pinned at 95 or 100 or the 1080i content from Cablevision is blurry on many channels.
I have a new 60” LCD panel running side by side with the VT-50 and it is crystal clear on the same channels.
I have swapped the feeds back and forth just incase there was a box or cable issue with the same results.
How bad is it to keep sharpness at 100?
Any other ideas on sharpness?
Really want to keep this TV but I am greatly concerned.
Thanks in advance.
I don't think sharpness of 100% will hurt, but I doubt it will help. I don't really like the Darbee but in your case you may want to look at it for use with Cablevision and 1080i.
Try viewing at night a few Blu Ray movies that have been made in the last year or two with sharpness set at 0, and see what you think of the VT50 compared to the LCD.
