I'm using CNet's ISF Dark settings now. Just watched an episode of Iron Fist and the dark scenes looked so awful I nearly had to turn it off.
Were you watching the 4K stream when you noticed this "awfulness"? I'm curious about this since I'm in the same situation you were (long time Kuro owner) but I've always understood that "problems" derived from lower resolution material.
Seriously. AVS is a place where you go to learn to be unhappy. - Bear5k
