On mine, on HDR technicolor expert mode w default settings, you can see the sky noticeably lighten when chapter 33 starts as the auto dimming from the dark scenes turns off. Rewind a few seconds and you can see that the sky acts normally instead. Happens every time. (EDIT: also make sure you have Dynamic contrast off. Dynamic contrast on low "fixes" the issue but of course destroys the low lighted scenes.)
I can not tell you how disappointed this makes me in these tvs. Why even care about shadow detail if dark movies are going to kick on the auto dimmer?!
I’ll try when I get home but active hdr does not ruin any dark scenes. I assume you are watching in HDr10 from the disc?
