Your suggestions and observations posted here are greatly appreciated by me since you seem to know what you're doing and your objective appears to be picture accuracy.
OK . . . . I got the meter out and ran a full SDR calibration on "technicolor Expert". In the attached screenshots, you will see the pre-calibration scan which shows a pretty accurate performing TV. The second screenshot shows how the colors came out after I got into the white balance and CMS. As you will see the colors came out almost perfect. If you want the CMS and White Balance settings, PM me.
Here's the readings/settings that I got. I also attached a screenshot with the ISF guidelines based on room lighting. My recommendation would be to turn it higher than what's listed below until it just gets too bright, and back it off a couple of points. The reason for this is because you can get a bit of HDR pop out of the picture by increasing it. Just don't go crazy or exceed 60. That's for SDR. The HDR setting is 100, and leave as is.
These are all middle ground settings as the attached guideline will also indicate . . .
Bright Room: 55FL - OLED LIGHT = 49
Dim Room: 45FL - O.L. = 36
Dark Room 35FL - O.L. = 25

I have HDR enabled through my HDMI port that is coming from Denon receiver that has my 4K equipment passing through it. I then have my Spectrum Cable STB going into another HDMI port. Did I do it correctly, as I assume you mean for viewing Standard Dynamic Range content, which would be anything not in 4K HDR?
The TV actually auto-switches to the appropriate dynamic range mode based on what type of signal ( SDR, HDR, HLG, DV ) it receives. There's a same named version of technicolor Expert for HDR, but you need to be playing HDR content in order for the TV to be triggered into HDR mode. It also has its own settings file/table that will be different from the SDR version of the picture mode. Same thing for DV, except there is no technicolor Expert picture mode offered. ( competing format )
When you play HDR content and the TV recognizes the signal you will see a banner/badge appear briefly on the upper right hand corner of the screen. So you either need an HDR playback device such as a 4K UHD player, or a streamer like the AppleTV 4K or Roku, etc. - or use one of the built-in apps and launch the Amazon Prime app and play HDR content. Double check your Denon and make sure it is setup to pass through a 4K HDR signal from any of the connected devices.
I hope I'm making sense.
EDIT: I accidentally posted a pre-calibration screenshot of HDR. Now I have the correct one for SDR- technicolor Expert.
