Thank you for these settings!

I have a few questions for you:

1) I have the 46 inch version (LC-46D43U) and was wondering if you think these same settings would be good for my set as well?

2) Do you have other settings for bright / daytime viewing?

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?
