Sorry, am not sure what you mean.

I only referenced 10 as an example, but I see a

with something like 10%: 35, 40, 30.
Maybe you would prefer a BT.1886, but I wouldn't
arbitrarily increase those values without a meter + cal. software.
Oh, I just don't arbitrarily adjust, I use my 'eye-meter' for the
best looking gray I can see.
Sure it's not meter-accurate,
but from what it was out-of-the-box, it's a LOT better.
I've been doing this since the M-40 unit, the 2014 P50, and
now my current P50. Lots of practice.
Re: Netflix.. some of their DV content is mastered pretty dark..
best bet to increase accurately is in fact to adjust the gamma..
so yeah, 1.8 is not bad for example w/ DareDevil in a bright room!
Hmm, I just checked out the color tuner settings linked in your
sig.. can't believe you are adjusting 11-pt "by eye"!
Yeah, I got so fed-up with the crappy grayscale back in 2013.
That started my 'By-Eye' adventure.
Your 10% green setting to -10 is likely crushing your blacks,
put that back to 0 and go back to default 2.1 gamma and see
what you think.
I thought Gamma 2.2 was/is the default?
Anyway, I think you were looking at my older setup.
My latest published settings are attached below.
I remember reading from a Calibration Thread about not messing
with the Green Loomy thing, so I try not to do that. This latest
By-Eye Adjustment had me only adjusting the Blue. All are on
the 'plus' side.
I thought the 5% would be a 'Black Level' adjuster. It's the 10%
Do you adjust offset + gain? That's about the only thing I would
think about adjusting without a meter, and even then, I would
leave the green alone so you don't mess w/ the luminance.
Adjusting the 11-Point is easier than it was with the earlier
models. So, I leave the 2-point as is, especially since recent
Firmware Releases has the Normal CT near spot-on. This
allows me to fine-tune each 11-Point Bar to look gray.
My latest setup has the best grayscale ever, by eye.
B&W content look great now, along with color content.
I really hated watching B&W stuff that had shades of pinks
and purples and greens, etc... in 2013-to-2015+.
My latest touch-up was using the AVS 709 Color Clipping
I adjusted the Saturation and Brightness levels to have all
the Flashing Bars go near 255. The Green looked too much
like a Fluorescent Green vs the 'flatter-looking' Red and Blue.
Now they look all the same and even the CYM colors look
I'll put those numbers up if I keep that as is.
