    Will be taking delivery of a 55"Panasonic OLED 2017 model on Friday. Have already read the review where they mention adjusting the contrast so it wasn't clipping. How much should I adjust up or down and what's clipping? Thanks

    In the Pro1, Pro2, True Cinema and THX modes the default settings of 90 for SDR and 100 for HDR are correct already so you shouldn't need to adjust them. Same for Colour, Brightness and Colour Temp. All you really need to do is adjust the Oled Light for SDR for your room lighting level. Gamma set at 2.3 can work well for HDR and even SDR depending on your rooms ambient light.

    With regards to clipping Contrast have a read here:-

    The other articles there are also excellent.

    No. Oled Light is the Backlight. Gamma has it's own seperate list of options (2.2, 2.3, 2.4 etc etc) in the Advanced Settings menu.

    Once you've got your TV and can see the menu structure things will become a bit clearer.:)

    Helps if I use the correct terminology. :facepalm:

    It's Luminance Level on the Panasonic not Oled Light (that's on my other TV).

    Tend to watch TV with the light on, can you suggest a point to set it. Although I wouldn’t call our lounge a bright room.

    For SDR content I've set mine up for a bright room, dark room and one in the middle. The Panasonic will store the seperate Picture Modes so once set up you can just switch between them depending on your rooms ambient light.

    I use the True Cinema mode for a middle setting with the Luminance Level at 45. Gamma is 2.3.

    For a bright room I use Professional 1 (Isf Day) with Luminance Level at 60, Gamma is 2.2.

    For a completely dark room I use Professional 2 (Isf Night) with Luminance Level at 30, Gamma is BT.1886 (or you can use 2.4).

    In all modes, Contrast is 90, Brightness 0, Colour 50, Sharpness 0 (or you can stick with the default 30) and the Colour Temp is Warm2.
