Sony DVP-NS725P Settings questions

There are a few settings that I am unsure of and wondering what if they are best left disabled or "off".

Advanced: I can select Bit Rate, Layer or Off.
BNR: Off, 1, 2 or 3.
Custom Picture Mode: Standard, Dynamic 1, Dynamic 2, Cinema 1 or Cinema 2.
Digital Video Enhancer: Off, 1, 2, 3 or Soft.

Here is some info regarding the options:
Digital Video Enhancer: The Digital Video Enhancer makes the picture appear clear and crisp by enhancing the outlines of images on your TV screen. You can select one of three levels; each level enhances the outline more than the previous level. In addition, you can select "Soft", which softens the image, or the Digital Video Enhancer can be turned off.
Block Noise Reduction (BNR): The BNR function adjusts the picture quality by reducing the "block noise" or mosaic-like patterns that appear on your TV screen.

Would you advise leving Custom Picture mode on "Standard" and setting all others to off with a Sony XBR 960?
