not sure about rec709 and hp dreamcolor

Hi,

I grade with DaVinci and got the other day a new hpZ32x monitor. For grading I hooked it up to my bmd intensity shuttle thunderbolt via HDMI. Resolve recognizes the display - all just fine.
I set the dreamcolor to Rec 709 - In the infopanel it says that it uses gamma 2.4 - that suprised me a bit, because I expacted 2.2...
But what I´m most surprised is that the grades I made so far are realy waaay to dark and not saturated enogh. I realy have to push up the luma - I do it with the curves in Davinci and lift the saturation from the standard 50 to about 60 to 65 that it looks ok on the new dreamcolor.
It´s brand new - so I think that the calibration is not the issue. I´m just surprised that the differences are that huge.

Do you have made the same experience when you sent for the first time your grades to a rec709 profiled monitor - or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your help.

I hope the question is not too stupid :)

What I found on this issue:
http://www.red.com/learn/red-101/cinema-color-management

It states that Rec 709 is more desaturated and lacks in contrast compared to DCIp3 - and sRGB.
So everything seems to be fine with my setup.
