I've played around with alot of different settings. However, once I get too far down the rabbit trail, I do a factor reset. Switch to Calibrated, do the Backlight level thingy trick to 40, then start all over again however...a WTF?!?!

Vivid is a hot mess. Over saturated and exaggerated images. Looks great on the Youtube Nature 4K videos but I know better.
I was going through, yet again, more settings during lunch. I turned the contrast up to 60, brightness down to 45, gamma to 2.0 then the backlight up to 65. Stopped the video. Started the video.
Starred at the screen for a minute then BAM!
All of a sudden the screen got super bright! Everything just kinda popped out of the screen. I litterally started sweating. Then just as fast as my heart started racing, the image got dark again...
That was enough for me. I've been at this for 3 days now. If it wasn't for this brief miracle of pure UHD goodness, I would have continued to think that I was crazy.
No need for the pics now but I was only going to use the tablet as a reference for relative brightness of something else as the tablet screen is much more brighter than the TV screen. Again, this is with Active LED Zones=on. The screen is plenty bright with it off.
