Local Dimming Regular has highlight peaking. I will post those numbers shortly. If you just switch local dimming from Low to Medium and do nothing else, peak luminance goes up, to around 180 nits from 135 nits with the Low setting.

Waiting for takeoff to go to AXPONA, lol.
Have a good flight, if you happen to take a road trip going home, swing by Indy and calibrate my KS9800 lols

Local Dimming Regular, 2-point rec.709 Movie Mode calibration is in the OP. So is a saturation sweep from that.

Indeed. What I meant was, it's better if everyone doesn't ignore the discussion and post the same question without reading first.

Thanks, Mark! I hope you plan to do a 21-point grayscale + CMS calibration later on. I have to admit rec. 709 is my prime interest currently . Also, some black measurements? Hopefully they come back as 0 .

Yes black is zero full screen or with a normal window pattern. There are black measurements from the 18% constant APL pattern in the reports I posted.

Yes 20-point "as good as I can get it" is coming. As are Cal-Day and Cal-Night calibrations.

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
Double True!

Please be aware that Q7 black levels may vary over time. Yes, I know this thread is about Q9, but there might be some commonality with the Q7 model. I've never measured my 65Q7F, but my impression is that over a period of 3-5 days, what should be very dark parts of the picture, start looking lighter. Then, eventually, they get darker again. I find I can compensate by changing the Brightness control and the Gamma control down by 3 clicks during bright times, then back up during dark times. But of course this is a pain. Also, until I noticed the periodicity, it was very confusing.

That's very odd but not surprising as that model is just completely botched up right now. I am sure Samsung is working on FW updates to fix these issues but from owning 3 of their sets including 2 flagships, I've learned that FWs never fully resolve the bigger issues these sets have.

Best,
Spoiler!
