I was under the impression that you did NOT like Standard. If you do like Standard and don't want to try CP, then turn down your Brightness, turn off X-dynamic Range (or lower it), check your Live Color settings, etc. What exactly do you like and dislike about Standard?
P.S. Give Cinema Pro (or Home) a try for a full day and report back.
Thanks atbear. That's interesting, maybe I will try those settings, as I just turned it on and the Cinema Home Mode actually seems a bit brighter and more vivid then our standard/tweaked settings*. Cinema Pro on the other hand, does seem duller/darker. Btw, it wasn't me who did not like std, you must be thinking of someone else. We've been really enjoying our tweaked Std mode
*Our standard/tweaked settings: Std Mode, Brightness 15, Color 60/50, Light Sens Off --[Adv Brightness]-- Brightness 15, Contrast 90, Gamma 0, Black Level 50, Adv Contrast High/Med, Auto Local Dimming Med, X-Dyna-range Med/Off --[Adv Color]-- Color 60/50, Hue 0, Color Temp Neutral, Adv Color Temp N/A, Live Color Med --[Adv Clarity]-- Sharpness 60, Reality Creation Auto, Resolution 65, Mastered in 4K Off, Random Noise Reduction Auto, Digital Noise Reduction Auto, Smooth Gradation Low --[Adv Motion]-- Motion Flow Std, Smoothness 3, Clearness Min, CineMotion High --[Adv Video Options]-- HDR Mode Auto, HDMI Video Range Auto, Color Space Auto.
So pretty close to OOB defaults, however we do experiment/play around a bit with the: Brightness, Color, Live Color, Adv Contrast, Auto Local Dimming, X-Dyna-range, Color Temp, Sharpness, Smooth Gradation, etc-etc. Thanks very much for info & reply.

In the end.....make it look good to you and your family, even if technically it's not as accurate as other settings. For me, I tend to lean towards more accurate colors with then a little tweak to my liking.
I guess we'd fall into both camps. We do "try to make colors etc look as "correct" or natural as possible", to us, and by doing so we're of course trying to "make the tv look good" to us.
That said, we've been really enjoying our tweaked Std mode, with all watching agreeing that overall PQ---& colors etc---is amazing & fantastic etc. Our main tweaks being to brightness and contrast.
Perhaps when it comes to "accurate colors" . . . we may need to confess to being, somewhat, like how Bobby Jones thought/felt after watching Jack Nicklaus win the 1965 Masters, when he famously said: "Nicklaus played a game with which I am not familiar."
Nevertheless, after tweaking to our liking, we have been thoroughly enjoying the PQ---as it does look so good to us---which as you say, is what matters in the end. But now you & atbear have peaked my interest to experiment, so thanks very much for feedback and reply.
