If you can’t calibrate your monitor, you shouldn’t be doing any color work or commenting on anyone else’s.

I have followed these instructions, and It would seem that my panel is very Bright compared to my old TV for HDR content. So I have adjusted this now.

That’s not how you calibrate a TV. You need to use industry standard test patterns in the lighting conditions you’ll be working under.

I have copied the white balance in this but I can not change hardly anything because it’s running a PC and this will not allow you to have Movie mode because it only allows Standard or Dynamic modes.

This is something you should take up with Samsung to be honest.

No. Just no. Let me rephrase my earlier statement:

If you can’t calibrate your monitor using industry standard test patterns, you shouldn’t be doing any color work or commenting on anyone else’s until you own a monitor that can be accurately calibrated and have done so.

Until then, none of your “corrections” have any value.

Sorry to be so blunt about it, but it’s the absolute truth. And your lack of ability to properly calibrate your equipment means statements like…

So the original Matte has no Blue moon…

…are completely useless because you’re not looking at it at the same baseline everyone else that has calibrated monitors is.
