First of all use the Movie or Pro setting and warm color temperature. (I prefer Pro, which turns Scan Velocity Modulation off.)That "pixeliness" or graininess is caused by the SVM and too high of contrast and sharpness. Turn your contrast down to 30-40%(or less). Turn your Brightness down also if the lighting in your viewing room allows. If flesh tones look too red, turn your color saturation down a little. Tint is probably good where it is(midline). Turn your sharpness way down. This should soften your picture and get rid of most of the graininess. If you don't want to buy a calibration DVD, use the THX Optimizer on a THX certified DVD movie you rent or own. It will help you with the contrast & brightness especially. Search this forum for the service manual. There are several postings for them.
If you're still not happy, I would suggest an ISF calibration if money allows. Enjoy
