Incidentally, the new reference settings don't look great to my eye so far; I actually prefer the factory Movie and Standard settings save for some minor tweakage.
I never liked the original or updated settings and have dialed them in many times to check them out. They seem to introduce too much noise to the image for me. I subscribe to Time Warner Cable and use a SA8300HDC & CableCARD with my PRO-150FD.
I currently use the "Pure" AV setting, w/contrast @ 30, brightness @ +1, sharpness @ 0 and everything else is set to their default values.
While many individuals seem to endorse the settings posted @ the beginning of the owner's thread, this one-size-fits-all
approach does not work for me.
