Some HDR videos too dark

hi, 4K HDR movies all seem to be too dark on internal screen (m1 macbook air). Diagnostics: ZD8Y1 Source: Mandalorian S02E7 for example, but others as well.

Any chance you could send in a sample we can review here?

Edit: Sample received. Thanks!

Whether on Disney+ or an HDR web-dl Mandalorian has always looked much too dark compared to other shows/movies.

I think this is an issue with how this show is encoded.

The mandalorian is fake HDR. It’s an SDR presentation in a DV/HDR container. Max nits barely go over 300.

I found I’ve had to crank brightness up for a lot of the fake HDR releases

Blade Runner 2049 is as well, but I don’t have any issue with a dim image for that movie, either remux or my original UHD BD.
