Adjust QPDC for overall focus on the screen, ?And for SYSM you have to adjust it for each input and resolution, mine are all at 3.

I think ultimately this is the way to go, it is a much smoother and cleaner image. SYSM 2, although it brings all that fine detail neatly to the surface, the tradeoff is a noisier picture. I have come to the conclusion that SYSM 3 is the way to go, although it needs some help, since the picture is so smooth that you need to strain to see the detail more. The calibrator turned off every edge enhancment in the service menu, except for a MIDE setting. He set MIDE to 17, although I don't think this was a strong enough setting. You mentioned you created a MIDE 60 setting, which i tried out with the appropriate sub-category settings etc. While it looks ok, and brings out fine detail a little more, the image still needs some help in making details more "visible."
I originally thought that ANY edge enhancement is bad, but in this case the image actually benefits, and even needs it. The trick is to bring the image just at the surface so details are able to be seen, but not overshooting. The calibrator has sharpness middled/leveled out, which is where i should probably leave it. My question, is there another sharpness enhancing feature i should be using instead of, or in addition to a strong MIDE setting? I want to give that smooth picture the appropriate sharpness boost (with setting on SYSM 3) without giving the image too much visible edge enhancement. Your articles give some suggestion on what settings to use, but when getting to a specific input, they can get vague. (I understand you were generous enough to post them in the first place, as they have helped out many) Perhaps there was an article i missed, which is probably the case.
Thanks Ken, or anyone else that can help!
