I've found plenty of calibrated results for SDR, so I think I've nailed that down really well. ISF Expert Dark Room --> OLED light 40, brightness 50, contrast 100, colour 50, most modes/enhancements switched off. Recently read that 'Medium' colour settings actually gave a nice look and I actually prefer it over 'Warm 2'.
But what about the HDR modes? Any recommended settings there?
I've read some forum notes where apparently HDR Game is the most accurate HDR10 mode?
How about Dolby Vision?
Warm2 is closest to D65 on my set pre calibration, but if you prefer other settings that's okay.
Leave Dolby Vision settings at default, although turn off any artificial enhancement settings if they're on (and do this for every mode). Use DV dark, and OLED should be at 50. At 50 you still get the peak highlights at maximum nits. Above 50 and you start crushing highlights significantly, to the point where they actually get darker due to ABL.
HDR10 on the other hand needs to have OLED 100 to hit the peak brightness in the highlights. HDR Standard is the most accurate, although it typically won't look as good as DV dark. HDR Game is a darker mode, but gives you a greater dynamic range, less highlight crushing, so for some brighter non game content it may be worth using that mode as well, but no its not more accurate because it's about 1/3 of the brightness of the PQ standard. I use brightness 51 in HDR modes as that results in perfect blacks on my set in HDR, but 50 looks fine.
In SDR my OLED Light is 33, Brightness 52, and Contrast 80. Precalibration the OLED Light and Contrast numbers were slightly different though. I believe optimal contrast was 83 before tweaking the white balance controls. My SDR is calibrated to 145 nits, as that's a good number to combat ABL, and also 100 nit content in HDR Standard runs at around 140 nits, so it's a good benchmark to switch between the two for SDR/HDR comparisons.
