SuplexCity Sure! These settings work on my display (firmware 1207) and give a DE below 2 for nearly every color. As I mentioned to Ape, these should get you in the ballpark, but without a colorimeter, you can only expect so much. If you're used to most displays, which usually ship way too blue, using these may look dingy at first, but stick with it.
There are different settings for different device types. The first is for the input specified as "PC" and the second is for other types. I've calibrated the PC settings with a backlight setting of 11 (approx. 176 cd/m^2) to keep the backlight from using PWM dimming, and to preserve your eyes when you look at normal websites with white backgrounds. For the other modes, I use the full brightness of the backlight, set at 20 (approx. 276 cd/m^2). I presume you're using these modes for movies or HDR stuff, so you'll want the extra brightness.
Picture Mode: Standard
Sharpness: 50 (default for PC)
HDMI Black Level: Normal
Color Tone: Warm2
PC mode only allows a 2-point gamma adjustment via RGB offsets and gains.
Other Modes (keep everything not mentioned the same as PC Mode)
Picture Mode: Movie
Sharpness: 0 (default for non-PC modes... confusing)
Dynamic Contrast: Off
For White Balance, we have to adjust both 2-point and 10-point.
For 10-point, I'll post each setting as such: %: R, G, and B
10%: 14, 16, -42
20%: 7, 6, -49
30%: 0, 7, -28
40%: -3, 6, -23
50%: -2, 5, -21
60%: -6, 5, -14
70%: -9, 5, -14
80%: -10, 7, -7
90%: -9, 5, -4
100%: -4, 3, 7
And we need to adjust the Color Space to Custom:
Each of the primaries and secondaries (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Cyan, Magenta) have three values for R, G, and B:
R: 50, 0, 2
G: 8, 50, 4
B: 0, 6, 50
Y: 50, 49, 3
C: 0, 49, 51
M: 44, 2, 50
MaZa At those exact settings, PC mode measures 4376:1 and the other 4014:1 ANSI contrast, but these are limited in precision because the Optix XR can only measure brightness to the nearest hundredth (0.04, 0.05, etc.).
You're right about the transition from 45 to 46 brightness, but at lower gamma settings, the black level rise is almost imperceptible, even in a pitch black room. The measured contrast also doesn't change, but that's an issue with the colorimeter. The only way I'm able to get PC mode gamma to accurately track is to drop the contrast slider way down to 79 and raise the backlight to 20 to maintain the same ~170 nits brightness; that tames the gamma rise past 70%, but drops ANSI contrast down to around 2000:1. How are you dealing with PC mode?
The procedure you suggested for setting the 10-point is great. The other-mode settings I posted earlier give a gamma response that looks better than the PC-mode image I posted above, but I can refine it with your technique. I'll need to play around with it a bit more.

I am happy with the settings but I have to ask.
Are these settings good for movie watching?7178K whitepoint in the icc profile instead of 6500K confuses me.Or by saying ''To get balanced whitepoint:'' you mean 6500K?
Also,242 cd/m² is the peak brightness you measured including tweaking TV settings,right?(trying to configure Madvr)
I see.You did an auto calibration or something like that.
About out of the box settings in this calibration video it says that standard preset is inaccurate but movie preset is good.The thing is that I am using PC mode,so no movie preset for me.
I am happy with your settings but it makes me wonder how picture looks like in 6500k if whitepoint is wrong.I am trying Ashun's settings from up here since yesterday to see the difference.
If it happens to try 6500k and it's not big trouble please share your settings and profile.You could benefit from 6500k too even if watching only anime.
Thanks for answering.
I guess everything is correct but you had to choose 6500k whitepoint even for your occasion.It doesn't bother you that you can improve it?
If it ever happens to try it and want to share we are here.
