    I am using the X20 for about a month now.

    When I first got it the picture was dark and details were missed.

    So I turned up the brightness from the picture parameter to 40.

    That fixed the issue and showed the details that were missed in the dark scenes but brought another problem.

    Now Blacks in most movies are grey and it's like I am watching a movie on an LED screen.

    My question is what is the best settings for the X20 to watch movies on an OLED screen?

    For what type of content? HDR or SDR? Or both?

    What colorspace have you set the X20 to? Full or limited?

    Deep Color Mode=Auto
    Color Space Mode=Auto
    HDMI Color Region=Atuo

    I turned on the HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour from my C7 for the X20's HDMI input.

    That’s strange. I have both a Pioneer and Sony display and do not see any of the issues you are describing. I would contact Zidoo support and tell them about this, sounds like it could be something EDID related and how they communicate.

    Calibration of the oled screen by an professional are the way of resolving problems with HDR of Sdr shadow details and Hdr impact.
    Otherwise you're gonna mess around with settings for the rest of your time and still won't be satisfied.;)
