Are you serious?  Here's a partial list of things I can think of that
I always change that don't depend on hardware:
Always display closed captions, don't prefer EIA-708 captions,
behavior on exit, how bookmarks are set, how bookmarks are cleared,
theme, don't include Watch List group, OSD theme, black background for
captions.  These are spread over a number of menus, and I'm sure I've
missed some.
