Yes, peak brightness it nits at 100%. If you're seeing roll-off at around 70% with madTPG, I suspect that's caused by the problem I mentioned earlier, that CalMAN's configured metadata is not being passed all the way to the display, so I wouldn't be picking Contrast based on whether that roll-off occurs or not. Check to see if you get comparable roll-off with PGen+HDFury.

With that in mind the best eotf track is at 48 contrast. Anything less and everything starts to fall off. I'll check with Pgenerator in a bit.

OK, perhaps the Q70 does tone mapping even for 1000 nit metadata because its peak brightness is under 1000 nits. You could test further by using 4000 nit metadata in both; my guess is you won't see any difference with madTPG (I don't with my Q90R) but you will with HD Fury.

I would suggest changing the grayscale points to at least 21 steps. You can even go as high as 56
I go back and forth. I use 10pt just when I want a quick look. I need a break...my Pgenerator is stuck in APL now..I'll look more tomorrow...the HDR on this tv is a chore.

AIUI, only the original Integral. (There was a driver incompatibility with the Integral at one point, I'm unclear if it's been fixed.) Don't know about Samsung HDR mode.

I see that. I'm looking for an Integral now but can't even find a used one. Finding the custom metadata for the Linker has me at a loss.

It was the last sentence of that post I was referring to.
"You have to tell CalMAN you have an Integral and copy and paste the strings it generates into the proper fields on the Linker GUI."

This? If I don't have an integral how do I tell Calman I have one?

Like the post said, just use that panel to generate the HDR InfoFrame; manually copy it, disconnect, and paste it into your Linker. Keep using the same AVI InfoFrame that you've been using.

I caught that after the fact. That works. Thank you.

So I've been playing with the cms. It helps quite a bit to use dci p3 sweeps at 25% stimulus. It stops the tv from "stripping color"..I then don't have to use apl patterns.

I think I found my issue. I got teds disk for Pgenerator and when I bring up the greyscale there's a terrible green tint to it. Colormunki is apparently terrible to profile with. The rental and this one both gave the same results so i assumed it was fairly accurate.
