Also mine is IH02 panel. Does the calibration from a TH01 panel work with mine?
Mod was a hack to enable HDR functionality before Samsung finally released official firmware to support it. It is no longer necessary for HDR, and I don't recall it added anything else worthwhile, and it did break access to your Samsung account from the TV. No need for it any longer, as your JU7100 has HDR now. I'm not saying it's as good as the OLED sets they sell now, or even the JS
sets from the same generation. But it does a passable job with HDR.
I can't say of there's a big difference in the calibration settings for the different panels, but I do recall that someone had created different settings for different panels. Not certain those old numbers are still valid.
Samsung JU7100 and NU7100 4K TVs, Yamaha RX-V583, Nvidia Shield, a number of Roku players and TVs, Windows 10 media server with Serviio and Plex. Other players and TVs as well.
