My cord cutting/money saving settings are; 1) I use my cable cord, but no cable box and let the ga6400 scan all available channels, this works great.
2) I use xbmc and netflix, this too works great.
3) have a 3d bluray player, seldom used because I'm not happy with the way rental 3d movies look, need to compare settings with others here on the forum. I insert the 3d bluray, press play, but don't seem get full 3d effect, need help here too......
4) My picture settings are from the picture wizard, looks good but needs fine tuning to make the picture pop. Tried the settings from an earlier post but the picture actually got worse so I reverted to using the picture wizard settings in standard mode.
5) Internet connection via ethernet, for stability.
***** To use XBMC you need a jailbroken Apple tv2.
With this setup, all I pay for is Netflix and monthly internet connection..........
