Now I only played a few minutes, so i don't know if there are scenes, like the movies I tried, where the FI goes nuts and messes up completely..but it was fine on that scene.
+1 As I already posted a number of days ago. I don't know what is "wrong" with my 25 but the FI works great on it. These mountain scenes are incredible on mine with the most realistic 3D effect from 2D I've seen yet, but it's also fed 1080i from early Toshiba HA2 HD DVD player through a Flea with detail enhancement boosted, then 1080p60 from an Edge....and off of a Hi Power screen. Not everyone's combination for sure.
But Phil on AV forums stated it was useless also watching movies like King Kong from whatever TV feed he has. All I can say is again mine works GREAT. I have a very good cable HD feed from Charter that can look almost as good as Bluray at times. With the same combination I just mentioned above, and with the CMD on High I just saw the cleanest, clearest, coolest rendering of Deliverance at home I've ever seen the other night, from one of the movie channels. As others have mentioned, even on High, the effects of the FI with JVC's implementation is not over the top. Now that I've watched a number of parts of movies on cable, many of them look just better. Not soap opera like, but just more depth and realism. Talking about my cable feeds now, not booting up a Bluray and running at 1080p24 with the FI on.
OMG....had forgotten the incredible real river running footage in that movie. Better by far than The River Wild....especially in that they ran huge rapids in those aluminum canoes. And lots of closeups of Voight, Reynolds, etc where you could see they were actually in a number of those medium rapids.
