I had the eco settings off but I just checked and the brightness one was on. An update or something must have turned it on so that sounds like it could solve the dimming issue. I have seen some video of the edge bleed and it does look horrible so I guess I should leave well enough alone. What settings do you have yours on? I tried the ones on rtings.com and it is very dim. Do you just turn the backlight up if your room is brighter?

For the football blur try turning up blur reduction and/or judder reduction under the auto motion settings.
For the dimming make sure you turn off all the eco settings.

First of all, edge light bleed. I have looked up some videos of this model that shows dark images and bright light around the edges. I don't get it like that. It seems like when it is a lighter image, it is brighter right around the top edge. If it is a dark scene near the top, I don't see any light bleed. The TV is pretty much eye level and when I stand up, I don't notice that light around the top edge so maybe that is normal, but it still makes me wonder.
I watch a lot of sports and I notice in football and baseball when they move the camera down the field, it seems like there is a blur or shadow type of effect on the field. I may not be explaining that well, but when the camera is moved down a football field, it just seems like the field looks a little splotchy like. Maybe this is normal and in the image, but I don't remember noticing this as much before or on another TVs. Maybe the TV is so nice it emphasizes that.
The first two things I mentioned above may be normal or acceptable and I am just worrying about making sure everything is right, but something else I have been noticing lately doesn't seem right. I have noticed this mostly when watching TV shows or movies, but in the middle of a scene, the image just seems to get darker all of a sudden. It is not gradual, like it sometimes does when they go from a lighter to a darker scene. It will be in the middle of a scene where it just seems to suddenly get a little darker right in the middle of it. I can go back and rewind to try to recreate it, and it doesn't do it. I have had this happen both when watching cable and also when watching a movie on Amazon through the TV app so I can rule out the HDMI cable on that. It is not a big deal but then today something else happened. On the Comcast box, if you go into a menu or something for a bit it will dim the screen a little. We had it on that and then when we exited out of the menu back to the broadcast, the image stayed dark. I turned the TV off and back on again and it was back to normal. I was able to recreate this again by turning the menu on and off and the image stayed dark. So I don't know if this is a cable box issue or a TV issue. There could be a cable issue as I have noticed some choppy playback in DVR sometimes, but I find it odd that turning the TV off and on fixed this problem. Anyways, are there some tests I can perform to make sure everything looks normal before I take any action (light bleed, banding, etc.)? What do you guys recommend? I am going to start by doing a factory reset and calibrating according to the settings posted on rtings.com. Thank you.
