I watch tv mostly at night with the lights off and my medialight quad on. I’ve been running it at 40% lately.
I do not use hdr on my Apple TV 4k ( I know, I know.) The blooming in the black bars is way too distracting for me and the bias light can’t mask it. I’m much happier watching everything in sdr. It’s still bright, colorful, I can see all the shadow detail and the black bars are inky with the bias light. I’m just happier that way. I also have frame matching off. I’ve gone back and forth and to me it seems like the tv does a better job of handling motion with true cinema and cinemotion than it does getting a direct 24p signal.
I still use hdr for games of course.
