What film or charts were you using to check clipping?
Is your machine set up right?
Wonderful in that I think we're onto something. The -3, +1 and -1 on DRC must be the right move since we both came to the same conclusion.
On film or charts, I simply used scenes from Deadpool
and was able to resolve the greatest amount of detail with those settings. I don't know...it's difficult to explain... it seems the image's highlights have less pop, but the image just looks correct and as consistent as a 1080P master. In dark room viewing, after about 20 minutes, I don't know if my eyes adjusted or if the panels/lamp stabilized, but the picture then appeared brighter and to my comfort.
About my machine set up...well, I'm projecting onto a 2.35:1 125 inch, 1.2 gain Stewart screen. I used Autocal V7 and then tweaked, all using 2.3 gamma, BT2020, 6500K, iris at -5 w/standard input.
I also tried Panny settings added to the above:
Luma high +1, Luma mid +2, Chroma +1. With some material, those settings produced a jaw-dropping image with increased sharpness and clarity...with others it created a bit of added noise, so I left those at 0.
Are you using 2.3 gamma? And what do you have your iris set to now for SDR?
