TBH I've put the rest in the "magic and possibly placebo" category in my head. I don't see much difference between when features like Bravia and BINOZ are turned on and turned off.

Plus I'm not on stock ATM.

Well it's a WIP so it's not really very usable. Quite a few things a broken and I have no plans of releasing anything until I am happy with the result.
