, D-Nice did not ever post the settings, so they are not findable

Sorry, I used the word "off" which was ambiguous!
If you change those key settings, the tone mapping algorithm will be confused/wrong/make bad decisions
. That's what I meant by "off"
. As in, your aim was "off" if you miss a target when shooting.
You cannot turn the TV's tone mapping algorithm off in the sense of disabling
it. It's internal to the TV, and required because the TV cannot produce 4,000 nits, and it does not cover the entire rec2020 colour gamut. You wouldn't want to see HDR without any tone-mapping at all. Colours at the edges of the gamut would look randomly wrong; bright areas would be a solid shade of the TV's peak brightness. It would be completely unwatchable!
Aside: This is nothing to do with switching it to "dynamic" mode ("Dynamic Tone mapping"). This is the mode where it will ignore the metadata and make its own judgements when it is doing its tone-mapping. But in all forms of HDR, the TV is always doing tone-mapping. It has to because of its limitations
