Cutting a long story short, I have been calibrating my Samsung QLED for HDR using a profiled XRite IDisplay Pro colorimter.
While I was able to calibrate SDR fine, Its been dismal with HDR. The max nits I can get with a 10% White window is 480 nits. The display is capable of 1500+ nits!. I just tried the same on a CoreElec based box and I get the full nits so obviously the Vero is capping.
