Yes i think hdr games supposed to use that max. backlight.. and i sometimes switch from "pc mode" to "game console" for pc gaming in menu to get better picture.Hi guys, I have a question regarding backlight. My TV is mostly calibrated and my PC that is hooked up to it as well (matching RGB Level,color space etc.). I guess that theres the general consensus that the Q70R is fairly bright and a backlight level between 15-25 seems to be optimal. This definitely applies to desktop use, movies and bright games (like for example Nintendo Switch), but as soon as I play realistic looking games with lots of shadows and graphical fidelity (for example witcher 3, sea of thieves, hunt:showdown), the image is way too dark to easily spot details. The image generally looks dull and muted. As soon as i crank up the backlight to around 40-50 the games look like theyre supposed to. Bright highlights, dark areas are still visible. Picture looks great. I want to know what you guys are using, since it is generally recommended to only use that high level of backlight with HDR.
and if i found something looks dull to my eyes.. i just crank up the colour setting to 30-32. I just use what is available on the tv which pleases my eyes.
