    This is great!
    I love a great picture, but I found my best movies were so bright and defined it looked like HD sports, a bit scary.

    Your settings have helped.

    One thing, I can not access the Film Mode ( under Picture Options) you suggested Auto & mine is set to Off and its greyed out so I can’t change it. Any suggestions how to change it?

    Thank you so Much
