Thanks. For sometime yesterday to go back to previous pages and try different calibration settings.
The PJ has many slots to save calibration pediles so I have saved about 5 different ones. Such as 1080p SDR, 4K Apple TV (which is too bright imho but I am using a 3rd gen ATV so maybe that’s it??), HDR versions.
I liked Niels best so I am using that however the Niels HDR was too red so I turned down the red and also reduced overall saturation to 60 instead of 80. I think it looks better. Thoughts?
Since I’m new to PQ matters I had another question. So with HDR on (I saw Jack Ryan through my 2 yo Sony 4k upscaling blu way player via prime app), it looks very rich in color and detail however the flesh tones contrast and pronounced details (such as pronounced wrinkles on a face) do not appear natural. My original settings appears more natural. Is HDR supposed to appear natural or more eye popping, textured and saturated?
When do most folks here run HDR modes certain types of movies and shows or all the time? What about for SDR? Ima a fan is stanger things for example, would that be something to play in HDR or SDR mode?
Lastly, off topic a bit, if I go out and buy a true 4k playing device, such as an ATV 4k, should I see a noticeable improvement over my 4k upscaling BDP? Are there increasing number of 4k titles?

Here is the latest version (the last one incorrectly indicated oledurt's v.2 Bright Cinema setting used 50 for brightness instead of 40.)
Most importantly, a big shout out and thank you to oledurt, Dave Harper and all the other users who have posted their settings here.
I quoted the old post with the compiled PDF of settings. Click the > to go to the post and grab the PDF from there.
As for firmware, I remember reading that HDR modes were improved / tweaked in more recent firmware revisions, so in theory it would be wise to be on the latest firmware. Not sure what else was changed.
