I have posted several times on this thread of how impressed i have been with my 940E after two years of ownership, however, i use my set only for HD sources (blue ray, 1080p Kodi material, etc), 1280x720 content and sometimes even SD sources such as DVD video.
After collecting hundreds of titles in each format starting around 1982 of VHS tape, VHS stereo, Super VHS, Laserdiscs, Extended Laserdiscs, DVDs and finally Blu-ray i promised myself i would never again spend extravagant amounts of money on any new format - i find blu-ray titles already offer an excellent picture for my needs - and so i have never used my 940E to watch HDR sources and i wonder how does it look on the set, specifically when it comes to elevated black levels, more visible blooming, DSE, darkened L/R corners, lightened widescreen bars, etc, due to having to increase the LED brightness to maximum or close to it.
Do any owners of the 940E have ever been disturbed by such unwanted anomalies when watching HDR content ?
When watching content on blu-ray vs. watching it on HDR, besides the expected and welcomed increase in specular brightness, are you bothered by any increase of onscreen uniformity issues ?
