Well after watching two videos from Digital Foundry, I just received two completely different answers from the exact same employee posting the videos.
First I heard that on the KS series, when a HDR signal is detected, at least with a PS4 pro, the backlight automatically boosts to 20. Maybe this was fixed with a firmware.
The Digital Foundry video basically states how you need the brightness at 20, or at the bare minimum 15 to get over the 1000 nits to properly display a correct HDR image.
In their second video, they basically just say how to enable game mode as a must due to very bad input lag with HDR and games, but they keep their Backlight on 5.
I'm just thankful the KS series has that one connect box to make HDMI switching simple. I have good settings for standard HD. I gueS HDR will require a lot of patience. It's definitely got a lot of maturing to do.
Still back and forth on this model and the 6300. HDR doesn't really blow me away like I heard from all over the web. Color accuracy and great contrast ratio seems much more important. We will see when the 6300 delivers on Monday. Both prices were so cheap. It's hard to decide.
