How are you liking the settings so far?You know what, I've totally changed my mind on the settings. After nearly 3 weeks of trial and error I finally resolved to resetting everything to default. I think I made such a bad job initially that now I just put everything on Home Cinema or HDR Home Cinema and it looks fantastic (albeit with the motion on Smooth) . I'm not sure if I've just grown accustomed to these settings over time or my set has settled since I bought it.
I find Vivid is just too 'blingy' and a bit distracting. I've moved away from trying not to use Light Boost, as everything without it is just washed out. I try not to over enhance the colour or use the Wide gamut, also have resorted to keeping the colour temp on normal, as warm is just too much like viewing through honey.
I find noise reduction and mpeg artefact reduction a waste of time and tend to keep the sharpness about 5 for HD and 7 for HDR.
Would appreciate any feedback, however I'm now only allowed to tinker when the wife is not in, she says if she hears that remote click on more time during a show, she is going to smash it....lol
I really like the image quality of the TV and I love the ambi light, but some movies/content just looks as if I'm on the film set itself instead of watching a movie. And yes that is a bad thing. The whole image is clear/really sharp (sorry I'm not a native English speaker, so I don't know the exact term for it) making some content (almost) unwatchable for me.
A good example is the movie 'Errementari'. A horror movie, but I turned it off because if felt like I was watching an outdoor theater play instead of a horror movie.
A brutal blacksmith tortures a demon he blames for his misery, unaware a trespassing orphan is about to change everything. Based on Basque folklore.
Settings: I've turned off all the 'enhancers' and set the picture to 'filmmaker mode'. Light boost is turned off. Contrast is set on 100.
By the way: I also had the white artifacts once in one episode of Downton Abbey. Strange enough it only occurred in one episode.
Another weird thing: sometimes there is a little jitter like some frames are being skipped.
ps: I had to laugh hard about changing settings while watching something with the wife. If I never post here again that is probably because I changed the settings one time too many while watching something together
