Is there a way to turn off Local Dimming on NU8000

I just bought this TV and the local dimming is distracting when watching content with white subtittles. The screen goes brighter when they appear. I’ve read that there’s an option to hack it and turn if off with an older controller but I dont know if thats gonna screw my tv.
