3. Does anybody use different calibration settings for different things to watch? Maybe sports vs film? Any advice how to do that?
1. To me a good calibration disk is a must have so you can check setting once in awhile to make sure all is well. I have both the analog (for DVD player) and Blu versions of DVE, and now have the WOW Disk.
2. IMO no such thing as standard settings; all TVs are different. Even minor adjustments can make major improvements to your picture. Besides, even if the so-called standard settings just happen to be correct for your TV, what makes you think that the video coming out of the sources are all correct? (Hint; they are not.) A calibration disk will quickly point out these problems so you can make corrections where needed.
3. IMO, correct is correct, makes zero difference what you are watching. Remember that correct calibration covers three main items (and others to a lessor degree):
1. Black Level
All of these should be set correctly, and the same, regardless what you are watching.
