What numerical value are you suggesting in your settings for contrast?

Hi, thanks for the great settings! I noticed tho that my 3:2 pulldown option is grayed out, was this a error in your settings or am I not doing something right? Thanks for your help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
