Im going to go against the grain for once and give a setting recommendation against what I know is true to what the creator intended...
I highly suggest keeping the motion setting at Smoothness: 3 and Clearness: Min
Reason? You get that 'pop' factor with clearness at min; any higher and it dulls the brightness of the screen too much imo
Smoothness of 3 is the lowest setting I could test that still allowed a scrolling text (espn,foxnews,HLN,etc.) from stuttering. It is very smooth, I am not saying its the best other than that fact alone.
I have also changed the rtings and z9d suggested settings as follows (for my personal preference, have not adjusted for UHD/HDR):
cinemotion:medium (removes additional judder, low was stated to detect 24p sources)
sharpness 60: looked better with my tivo bolt running cox sources (any lower resulted in fuzziness)
noise reduction both set to Auto (just trying this out, thought is for OTA viewing its necessary based on experience)
Color 55: I dont want to oversaturate but after changing the 2 point to the z9d recommendations I felt the colors were too flat NOTE: I have not done a calibration using a meter so obviously this is 100% YMMV
Color temp: warm, expert1 was just way to red/yellow imo, not arguing that its not correct, just more than I suspected in the red/yellow range
Black Adjust: Low (have not scene any lose in detail... yet)
Adv. Contrast: High (personal preference of course, but I like it, gives POP to the OTA material)
X-tend Dynamic Range: High (I honestly thing this goes hand in hand with adv. contrast but I am still not fully informed.. starting here for preference.
Loving this tv more and more. Thanks for the help fellas!
note: still cant get the white dot during the rtings white dot local dimming test to hold together... might need better source material. Even the on board apps are still not getting the resolution they advertise, and my oppo doesnt have apps so this is taking some trial and error. Time to upgrade to an nvidia shield?
