So while it might be safe to say that the current Lumagen defaults are looking good on most displays, they don't work for every display and so, please do not remove access to the full set of DTM settings: an expert mode is fine, as long as there is some way to get to all the parameters...
While 50 nits does present limitations in overall brightness, you should be able to get a nice looking image without any artifacts. I offer remote setup/tweaking of the Lumagen so am available if you need help.

Glad to hear it is looking so good! The new DTM helps a lot with that movie, especially in the darker scenes like the opening sequence.

Sounds about right to me, more than enough light to make HDR look great. Would even consider dialing down your iris to increase contrast since you have headroom. Remember, HDR isn't about being bright, it is about increased dynamic range. You can't make a projector look like a flat panel, but going too bright can compromise the range you have available to the image.

1. Call dealer and they walk you through updating the settings. Not too bad really depending on the changes. Kris Deering recently did this for me.
2. Download your configuration. Email the file to your dealer. They update and send it back. You would have to upload back into your Pro. Not really much different then updating firmware.
Speaking of which, once you move to the new firmware we need to tweak your settings!

On a separate note - since the Lumagen does not have IP access - as you recommend the changes in settings with new firmwares - how do electronically challenged people like me dial in these settings? Call their dealer/calibrator and they would walk the user through the tweaks??
Thanks in advance.
Your dealer or someone else should be able to help you remotely when it comes to updating settings. That is part of supporting a product. At a minimum they should familiarize you with how to do firmware updates or how to download your profile so they can work on it remotely.
