SM can be tricky, was checking out the test color and gray scale bars and had a hard time getting out of there. Had to hit menu button to get out of that section. Be very careful in SM for sure. I broke out in a sweat there for a minute.
I have an April build 5063 with firmware 1013 and gamma was set to 8 as well. Changed to 0 to test it out. Unfortunately the SM automatically puts you into Dynamic as soon as you enter it while I usually use Cinema, so it's tough to see what the Gamma effect does exactly if you have a DVE test pattern on the screen for example.
So far looks pretty good, although it's tough to say whether I like it more or less than before. Will definitely need to give it some time though. Never really felt I had a green tint before but certainly don't have one now.
Can someone describe what effect we are supposed to see by turning Gamma down to 0 (from 8 in my case).
My other picture settings are as follows (Cinema always):
Contrast - 90-95 (95 on my S97 over HDMI, otherwise 90)
Brightness - 50-60 (60 on my S97 over HDMI)
Sharpness - 0
Color - 50-55
DNIe - Off
DNR - Off
