The main point that I don't like, I seem to loose a lot of black details compared to my Sony. I've already raised the Brightness to 63 (the sweet spot for SDR when using my Xbox for calibration) and getting a tad closer to my Sony. It still seems that I loose details in the blacks on the LG compared to the Sony though
What are your recommendations in this case?
I don't think that I should increase the brightness to 70, right?
OLED Light is around 85, I like a bright picture.
Also I seem to lack a little red on the LG, compared to the Sony, might need to adjust that also a little higher.
I think you're confusing black detail for blacks that are grey when they should not be on the old TV. The OLED panels will show pure black, something no LCD can do. Most LCDs display blacks in levels of gray and not actual black. I think you are chasing something that you actually don't want. Anything on the OLED that is pure black is mastered that way and should not be grey. You're not losing detail I can safely say that. As for the red, I don't know without comparing and without a frame of reference. Maybe your Sony was pushing the reds hotter than it should, maybe not. What I'd do is try the technicolor preset on the OLED which is the most accurate preset they offer out of the box. Watch some content that way for a while, give it a few days. Keep in mind that the OLED will show pure blacks and you are seeing the black levels as they are supposed to be. My father has the Sony X850D and let me tell you it has very bad black levels, even for an LCD display. It has no local dimming control at all so the backlight bleeds into the picture all over the place where as the OLED can turn off individual pixels as needed, hence why you get perfect blacks.
