Asked me today if I wanted to try Dolby Vision. I said sure and it switched. Haven’t watched any DV content yet but the main screen looks darker and washed out. SDR looks way better for the OS portions at least. When I select SDR and select options it gives the option to enable Dolby vision at the top. If I play DV content will it switch to that format on its own or do I need to leave that enabled all the time? My cables and Tv and everything support DV btw.

Providing you’ve got March Dynamic Range enabled then yes it will automatically switch to whatever the content is capable of displaying.

Agreed, I also use 'match dynamic range' on my ATV, but the default resolution is set to 4k SDR. I don't want the higher contrast of HDR / DV creating any screen retention / burn-in on the OLED TV. The OLED does show a confirmation banner when the content begins in DV.
