I saw that quadruple-bounce with PERFECT clarity thanks to modern display technology. I think it's time to go back to 480i.

The thing is that people asked Kevin Miller for those settings, and he said no. He said has them for personal reference, but he would not share them with the folks at the event.
I think the basic idea is that you should get one of those set up discs, Disney WOW or Spears & Munsil, do what you can with your eyes and patterns, and if you need to go beyond that, you need a meter.
Realistically, the starting point is to use this forum to figure out how to use test patterns to optimize your display, in particular the parameters that don't require a meter to adjust optimally.
The beauty of AVS Forum is that the answer to getting the best picture is contained within, the problem is it's not as simple as just copying some settings, that somebody's keeping a secret for no good reason. The settings are not being shared because It's not just have a room that's different, it's the screen material that's different, it's screen sizes that are different, and there are variations from projector to projector. It's not even as simple as it is with TVs, where some settings (like gamma and backlight control) have a very consistent effect from unit to unit. With projection, it can be all over the place Almost everyone using the exact same type/size of screen, in the exact same type of room.
It is the fact of these challenges that is also why you cannot have something like Dolby Vision for projectors. You simply cannot predict the behavior of the device once you factor in the room and the screen.
