The flickering (when using auto iris) can also come from (it seems) the gamma adjustment feature. The JVC's software engages a dynamic gamma, altering the gamma/brightness of certain areas, in...

So cool! It's been so long that you've written about wanting to address your room reflections in a more permanent, substantial way, and this looks like it works like a charm.

Boy it would be nice for that to be an actual trend, and for it to carry into the next models.
