Ok, so what's the bottom line for settings when using the Panasonic for UHD discs, for those of us who don't yet have/need/want the Fury? I know with the Samsung, JVC had recommended some specific settings, but it seems that isn't needed for the Panny, if I'm reading everyone's posts right.
So, for UHD, with HDR output on the Panny:
BT2020 as the color profile
Gamma 2.3, Dark Level up 2 per your own taste/preferences
Any other specific adjustments or settings that need to be made either on the Panny or the JVC? And have I omitted or misunderstood any of the settings I've listed?
And, for SDR output from the Panny, just use your regular settings for any other 1080P Blu-ray (other than eShift being on)? Or are other tweaks needed?
I've done JVC Autocal (RS400 in my case, but it seems settings-wise, it wouldn't be treated any differently, right?), and am strongly considering getting the Panny. Just want to be prepared to evaluate it with optimal settings, to decide if it's worth $700! And from there, decide if I need the Fury in addition.
