In short, SDR-viewing should be limited to 100nits peak brightness, which you'll get with a brightness setting of 7-10/50 and Xtended Dynamic Range sett to OFF.
Don't make the same mistake that I did.
They actually speak to this in the settings explanation and a bit in the video.
"For normal home use, you should turn On the 'Auto local dimming' and 'X-tended Dynamic Range' (however, they were turned off during our calibration process)... "
Then, later in the HDR settings:
"When HDR content is detected the TV should switch automatically to the good settings, but if you want to be sure you can verify that the 'Brightness' is set to 'Max', that ' Auto local dimming' is set to 'High' ..."
I interpreted all of the above to basically say what you are saying and tried it multiple ways. For most accurate color presentation in SDR, turn off or lower all the brightness, contrast and dynamic range settings. For HDR, crank it up..
