MID certainly leans towards "blue" but its much more pleasing, even with fleshtones.
So, using MOVIE and the rest of Nuances settings I still run it at color temp MID. I did change the -2 Tint setting to -5(RED) to balance things out. Man, Im done screwing around.... you can drive yourself nuts with this stuff trying to get it just right only to edit again kater that night.
I must be missing something though or my set really is different enough to look good with color temp MID instead of LOW.
Use whichever settings you want to; only our opinion matters. However, I suggest trying User mode with a Contrast of 29, a Brightness of +2, a Tint of 0, a Color Temp of Low and a Gamma of 3. It looks amazing on my TV, but your mileage may vary.
D-Nice also has reference settings that he uses; many people like them. And lets not forget about the truly talented calibrators on this forum, such as umr (Jeff). If the colors still don't look right to your eyes after you try all of our settings, pay to have it ISF calibrated. I doubt you'll regret it.

Try turning Pure Cinema Mode to Advance with blue-ray and standard with cable/dish. Else try turning it off. Also, turn power save mode off.
