Ah, interesting settings!
TB4, I was initially confused by this post, as I had to wait till I got home to check, but im guessing you are talking about configuring picture settings on your KS8000
for watching Blu Rays and UHD BDs, not on the K8500 - as there are no "picture" or color/contrast settings to change in the player's options screen (that I'm aware of, anyway).
I'm also assuming you are talking about Natural, as it does look a lot like default Dynamic mode. Also your "5" for both color and contrast is supposed to 50, correct? Either way, I see you are well in favor of a backlight of 20, among other things. What I'd like to know is what movies and content to have you tested with this that made you gravitate away from Movie mode?
I personally just threw in my Excalibur BD and have been messing around with different settings, and I do have to say an older film like this, albeit with some strong colors, does look pretty good with a maxed Backlight setting. But something like, i dont know.... Age of Ultron, I would be much more inclined to go with the Movie mode I've been using for the majority of things.
Have you tried many different films with these settings? Do most people max things out this way as a general rule when watching BDs with this tv?
