Messing around with 5% IRE can make the gradation worse, like you said 18 and 19 being much darker than 20. So I'd rather take a bit of black crush. You can also try to increase 2-point low a few clicks and see how far you can raise it without creating black glow which I think works better than messing with 20-point IRE 5.
I think the way LGs calibration controls work at the low end is just bad. For me it's not that much of an issue since I mostly watch movies using my PC where I can basically do what increasing brightness on the TV does but without lifting black.
i played with it a bit more and now i can raise brightness with 2.2 to 53 without glowing or leaking light. And luminance only +5. And i can see 17 now. Weird,because before it didnt work. BT.1886 also works well with brightness 51 and Lum. +20
I will play with the 2-point low as you suggested.
I also watch everything on my PC mostly.
But how do i increase brightness on my PC without raising black then?
I have AMD Radeon settings. I have to play with that brightness slider there then?
Or whatelse are my options with my videocard? R9 290
EDIT: o my god man!you fixed my tv! Thanks!
When i increase 2-point RGB with 12,then i can get 17 to slightly flash!
No more crushed blacks!
Also: The whole image seems to look better?
So the factory settings from my tv where just way off? Or how should i see this?
And are there some sort of negative side effects to increasing 2-point low rgb?
And you're right. 1.9 does look washed out compared to 2.2
