Are you certain?
There's no Internet
-Based ads for me.
So many people keep saying this over and over I'm getting the feeling that the USA models alone genuinely do have Internet
-based ads. Please could someone post a screenshot?

Very nice guide. It's important to however, that this info bar only shows what's being received
, not displayed. For instance, in "Natural" and "Dynamic" modes which can't process HDR, it'll still merrily say HDR.

I followed a link with a very good calibration review from an AVS member on the 9000 series and how he was able to achieve most of the HDR benefits with backlight set at 14.
I've been using this and have been happy with the HDR content being displayed so far.

After reading imagic's excellent review I too decided to reduce my backlight.
My "night" settings use Movie picture mode. Backlight is 5 normally and 14 for HDR. This gives 120nits for SDR and the full 1000 nits for HDR. Ie you don't need more than 14 to get 1000 nits in a properly dark room.
During the day, we need more brightness, so I use "Standard" with backlight at 16 normally (gives 300 nits) and 20 for HDR (gives 1350 nits).
But whenever possible, I close the blind during the day and use the "night" settings anyway
