Thanks for the settings, Tom! I'll give them a try.
John - you are right that a punchy HD picture does look stunning, even if it is not calibrated
Also missing from the HD80 menu are anamorphic lens settings that are in the manual.
Steffen, thanks for the help with the PS3. I moved the PS3 next to the HD80. I just can't seem to force 24Hz output (I assume that the HD80 must send an EDID to the PS3 telling it it will accept 24Hz output. The auto mode for the PS3 ONLY sets 1080p60).
Also, with a 2m HDMI-DVI cable, I got no processing (Searching input) screens. The cable length is tied to the HDCP problem, which in turn is tied to the HDMI chip driver in the players. I hope that the same think will not happen to longer HDMI cables, or else all the equipment will need to be moved closer to the pj (and my ears)...
Now 1080p60 still looks stunning (I tested with Casino Royale)! I am sure that there is some minor improvement with pans with 1080p24 (even if the pj doubles it to 48).
I am thinking of buying the new Sony BD player which can be forced to output 1080p24 and see what happens. The PS3 got much hotter and a bit louder in 1080p60 mode.
