Help with X180 detail settings

I am not happy with the detail values in my X180. On or off they seem pretty crappy, and my current values, semi derived from PMW200 recommendations, really suck Everything has a kind of blurry smeared look, lighted and close in, but way off in the background in wide shots, things like lights or reflections from chrome bumpers (night!) have that SD looking black halo around them.

My current settings are below, if anyone can recommend better settings, please do! Again, things like interviews and shots of cars in front of me are smeared and lack definition, but distant detail has that stupid edge halos/ringing and stuff. I shoot in 720p59.94, and export out in crappy 18Mbps HDV for broadcast......I don't chose the broadcast codec so don't make fun of me. :)

Master level 0
H/V ratio +20
Crispening -50
Level Depend On
Frequency +30
Knee aperture On
