Default Sony XBR43X800E and HDR/Light Sensor

I recently purchased a Sony XBR43X800E. One limitation I found with it is that I can't change the light sensor setting when there is an HDR signal, such as my Apple TV 4k set to 4k HDR. The result is a darker image at the same brightness level that I have to set the brightness all the way up and it's still not as bright as when I had it with HDR off on the Apple TV 4k and the light sensor feature turned off on the TV. The light sensor option is grayed out with a message saying that this feature is unavailable with HDR signals. Has anyone here with this TV figured out a way to change the light sensor setting with an HDR signal?

I'm not sure if the light sensor on the TV is disabled or enabled when HDR is turned on as I can't change the light sensor setting with an HDR signal. It's in the disable position but I'm not sure if it's actually disabled.

Should HDR be darker than SDR in the Apple TV 4k's interface or is this the light sensor feature on my TV doing it's work?

Interesting thread as I just got 55" of this model.
It's literally only been in the house a few minutes.
If I find out anything, I'll post here. Hopefully you can do the same.

I have the 75" model. Can't figure out how to turn off the so-called "Soap Opera Effect" setting that comes out of the box. Maybe Sony calls it something else?

I brought the 800 back and got a 900, but the menu should be the same.

I picked up the 55" model last night. Out of the box the picture is quite beautiful. I tried out The Dark Knight 4K on it and was blown away.

My previous 4K model (Samsung 6290) had limited HDR capability, so the difference is like night and day.
