Brightness at 53 seems high but if it’s working for you then it is! You are doing it right making sure the room is dark and your eyes are well adapted. I’m using the ramp down system for my set and am happy but if you’re content now then just leave it. Every set will be slightly different.Hi, great thread! With the tips here I set brightness to 53 and IRE 5 luminance to +7. With the 10 hours black video on youtube and completely dark room its easy to check if blacks float.
Question, should I do the 2-step down for higher IRE, so IRE 5: 7, IRE 10: 5, IRE 15: 3, IRE 20: 1? Or must I only use even numbers like 6, 4, 2? Cause thats what im reading here as others are doing like @wxman.
I have 65B8 with latest fw.
Have you watched some known content and verified you see improvements? That’s really the best test. Once I made my tweaks I tried out some scenes on Blu-ray Discs and whatever to validate my changes. I did notice slightly improved detail and less crush in scenes that had it before the adjustments so that sealed the deal.
Also, I went into my service menu and set my sub brightness main setting to 127. The default is 128. This allows me to use a brightness value of 52 pretty much across all modes and maintain true black. The 52 value teases out more detail than 51 so that was a good change too.
