I'm hoping that somebody could help me. I have an uncalibrated B8 with the following SDR key settings:
OLED Light 40
I used the AVS black clipping test in a pitch black room to adjust the brightness, to see minimal flashing at bar 17. Recently I tried OLED 50 and contrast 90 but it seemed a little bit to bright after using 40 and 85 for almost a year.
Now a few people told me to try gamma 2.4. When using that, I need to adjust the brightness to 59 to see bar 17 flashing again.
I put each 2.2 and 2.4 to isf dark and bright and switched within several movies/scenes. It seems 2.4 gives me a little bit richer colors and dephts, especially noticable in cartoons/animation content, 2.2 looks washed out in comparison but I don't know if that is really the case or just because its a little bit brighter.
What can I improve here? I don't have a feeling anymore what the "right" setting is. And I'm wondering why my brightness setting is so high since most people say to stick around 50.
I never touched the IRE settings. Would be this was wxman said helpful for my me?

That's about the best you can do.
What about the other IRE settings? Is adjusting 5 IRE enough?
Thanks in advance.
