Only way to diminish posterization is to set it to hdr effect mode. What do you suggest for fios or cable viewing? Do you still recommend the c7 over the Sony in that department?
Check your FIOS cable settings page, and verify your Video settings are for 1080p, Default (2) sharpness. I've seen most friends on FIOS boxes are set to 720p.
For gaming, the best results in PQ I've seen is this procedure, have you tried this yet?:
1) Press the Input selection button on your remote, choose "All Inputs".
2) Select the HDMI input to your gaming device.
3) Change the Icon to the "PC" label (as shown in the screen shot attached)
This will place the C7 into low input lag mode similar to Game mode..
4) Select Technicolor Expert picture mode.
Give this a try and see how you like it. This works great for low input lag for both SDR and HDR games with the Technicolor Expert picture mode tuning.
For black levels, try adjusting "Brightness" up to 60 (but not past 60).
