Desire more light for indoor scenes
I have had the 65Q7F (FA02) for 6 weeks now. It is in a bright big and many windows room, but this issue happens all the time, regardless of ambient light. I leave HDR+ on for almost all viewing and have the ambient light settings under Eco turned off.
Watching anything (HD, UHD) via the 4K Comcast box or either my Oppo 105 and 203, even direct antenna local channels, outside scenes are plenty bright, but interior scenes and outside night (not city lit) scenes are all too dark for my preferences.
Although I like black blacks, if there is any detail in the scene, I want to be able to see it, even looking into the screen at dark corners or the unlit half of a side-lit face. Even if I crank up backlight (20), brightness (+5) and contrast (100), the subtle near-black parts from interior and exterior-night scenes are too dark to see any detail.
What other settings (other than backlight, brightness, contrast) can I adjust for this, that is, to bring out the dark (but not black) information in these types of screens?
Disclaimer: I understand the desire from serious TV viewers to say it should be dark. I have a personal preference to see any detail that the film maker(s) place on the screen. If it's black, then okay, I can't see anything, but if it's lighter than black, I want to see what it is.
