Just set mine up ready to try tonight :thumbsup:

Interested to see how these settings compare with my own "calibrated" (lol) setup, might need to tune to compensate for the filter though.

Let us all know how you tune the settings as I am now using a filter.

I think this would just be limited to brightness/contrast, since the ND2 doesn't actually change the hue or anything. Impossible to do during the daytime of course, so will have a little play tonight.

I found the settings above to give a great looking image.....until I added all that yellow that was added later! Ended up dropping yellow down to 48 ;-).

I dropped the yellow hue to 48. With it at 64 as above, faces seemed very orange.

With that and all other settings as above, the picture is very natural and I am very pleased with the results.

Are these settings done with HDMI source. On my 1070 the Hue and Colour are not available to tune when using HDMI source. Also, the factory presets for Colour Temperature Gain are almost half of what is shown. Why such a great variance?

Everyones been diseased in our house hence the delayed reply.
These settings were applied at the same time as I painted some "Black Widow" on the wall. Its certainly made a differance i`m loving it, thanks again.

I've yet to change my picture settings so will give these a try, are the settings for 3D the same or would anything need changing?

Got mine today, and I have the same issue - did you ever find out why they were unavailable?

UPDATE - according to the BENQ help it's because those settings are deemed to be the best, so they disable any changes
