I'm very surprised by some of the wacky settings people are using here.

Don't even touch the Backlight - it doesn't do what you would expect it to.
The -only- thing you should change is the GAMMA
Nah. Calibrated Dark by default, can be too bright at night, for me. That's what the
Backlight is for... to adjust for room lighting and my eyes. Leave 'Everything Default'?
No way. I also turn off the Noise Reduction features.
Matt already stated, whatever pic mode you're on, including Custom made ones, HDR
accounts for that. It is not a one-and-only-one setup for HDR. Is not this right, @shoman94
Vizio has done a really good job of dialing this thing in - unless you have very
expensive software + meter, you are almost certainly making the picture less accurate.
Most certainly less accurate? I'll challenge that.
Every single Firmware Release
since my M40 (2013), P50 (2014), and my current P50 has been by default, out of
adjustment (less accurate) with the Grayscale, where my 'By-Eye' adjustments made
Only recent Firmware Updates has the Grayscale close to spot-on. Even with that,
my A/B Test Pattern checks, show I still got better Grayscale vs the current Firmware
with my manual adjusting the 11-Point. I would've done just the 2-Point, but when
one or more of the 11-Point Bars are off, it was best for me to do the 11-Point.
One day when I get a decent digital camera, I'll post an A/B of the Grayscale. My
cheap candy bar cellphone puts a big pink hue spot in the center.
Why do you think the people here on AVS have their own meters/software to dial-in to
their specific panels? Thus, Firmware Updates can't put a perfect Grayscale to
each panel - just a hit-or-miss average. Why this is not done at the factory, I dunno -
a cost thing, I suppose.
So, my manual adjustments and test patterns vs a particular firmware default shows
to me I made improvements for the better - not worse. For if my setup made it
worse, I'd reset the Color Tuner and leave it at default.
Since I can't do anything with HDR adjusting, I have Tint at -2 to back-off on the
slightly overly-green Offset.
One day, I hope to pay for the CalMAN update and give it go, but until then, my
By-Eye adjusting works just fine.
