All issues resolved:
1: Darkness was not specific to LMCE. I just adjusted the display controls.
2: Video tearing fixed by passing the TearFree option to the Intel driver as described in the thread.
3: The subtle distortion was indeed a function of the modeline timings. The standard ATSC timings caused the distortion. I switched to one known to work with Sony TVs.
4. Sound is working fine. My receiver was not setup correctly.
Thanks again for the feedback. System is working great for basic playback...now on to the next set of issues...
