Newer model = different values
All of my other settings are the same as the Cnet configuration:
Picture mode: Movie
Sharpness: 2 (OK, this one's different)
In the Advanced Picture menu, I have everything set to off except for Film Mode.
In my previous basic calibration, I had the contrast in the low 50s. The increase to 75 was jarring at first because the TV became a lot brighter--too bright to watch in the dark, like you said. But I have a bias light behind my tv, so I just adjusted that to be brighter instead.
