It woulkdn't be a good idea to do so, when you had the optimal blacklevelpoint already beforce the procedure, i.e. Black at "16" and "17" the first shade with pictureinformation.
Raising the brightness after that just sets the wrong
blacklevelpoint and give you noise in shades that should be black.
With the potiruning you don't lose shadowdetail, actually it becomes more visible. The measured gamma of IRE5 rises (cause the colorimeter measures the noise and
the black areas between the pwm spikes), which is a good thing, cause otherwise you would only reach 1.92 at IRE5, after the tweak I have 2.12
Also, the combination of the brightnesssetting and the R, G, B-setting of IRE5 is very uhm... special. There only exist one
sweet spot, at which all shades at the very low end of the greyscale become different enough to render all detail.
On my german PK350 (the same as US PK550) it is "Brightness 54; Gamma High; IRE5 +5 -1 -2
