Correct Auto Local Dimming setting for HDR

Hey all,

Reading up on a Sony workflow for HDR calibration, it seems to say that for the maximum brightness Auto Local Dimming should be set to Mid (and X-tended Dynamic Range to High). I've been setting my Local Dimming to High for maximum contrast. Does setting it to Mid provide a higher nits output for HDR or should I keep it set to High?

Thanks

On my Sony TV, XDR on high and local dimming set to medium gives the highest output. Not much different at a 10% window but anything less than 10% and the difference grows.

Do you find yourself using Mid then or do you prefer the slightly deeper contrast of High?

I use high for dark viewing and medium for daytime.
