The winner looks annoyed, probably when he found out about that curve.

I was about to say: why do all these winners look annoyed? You just won something. Try a smile. I don't care if I was going to donate it 30 seconds after I won it I'd still be smiling at the fact I had won. I've literally never won anything in my entire life.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

At almost 59 years old I promised myself that I would never do a selfie, that was my first one.
I was glad to snap that picture to get this great new TV.

Thank you AVS Forum

Congratulations! Hey, I calibrated the Movie mode on your new TV! Enjoy it, the results of the calibration reveal it is an extremely color-accurate display:


SDR in Movie mode. I set it to 135 nits. You can adjust the backlight to taste for a brighter room.
Just remember where it is currently set for 135-nit (40 foot-lambert) brightness (for darker environments).




Here's the HDR calibration in Movie mode. It's great.




Saturation sweeps show a very well-behaved CMS. You'll see "director's intent."




Before & after SDR calibration (Movie mode)




Before & after HDR calibration (Movie mode)




And here are the settings I'm using for SDR at 135 nits.
You can dial these into another mode (like Standard mode SDR) if you want to use 'em elsewhere.
