That's how I had set up my JVC as well. Used the Pattern Generator for Lens Shift, Focus, and Zoom.
I'm using a movie to only set Clear Black and Enhance, as they're essentially Darbee-like settings.

...Keep in mind that's based on a scope image 2.39:1
Full screen 16:9 content would be extremely taxing on your vision
What's the throw distance and what screen material/gain?
I cant imagine where you would have room for a center channel speaker if its not an AT screen.
If using an acoustically transparent screen at that size/distance that may explain it.
The larger you make the image, the larger the pixels get and sitting closer than "normal"
amplifies your ability to see things you would not at a typical viewing distance.
All right, I took some actual measurements today. My screen is 10 ft wide; not 12. And my seat is exactly 13 ft away. The projector is 20 ft away from the screen. Brightness is not at all an issue now, even with Picture Tone at 0 and the lamp on low.
I'm not sure about the screen material but I do know that it's not Acoustically Transparent and the gain is 1.0.
This is a photo I had taken with my old Optoma projector just to give you an idea of what it's like: (and yes, I know that white walls wash out the contrast
Pringles for scale.
Oh, and by the way, another factor to consider is that your player is superior and also comes with 4K upscaling. I'm using a PS3 at the moment and it induces judder at 24 hz. I know it's the PS3 because it's the same case when used with both my TVs. I won't say anything on this until I get my Oppo UDP-203, which will most likely make this a non-issue.

Try keeping e-shift off for non-4K sources. I find it definitely increases the perceived sharpness to keep it off.

I watched 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
today with E-Shift off-- noticeably sharper. Just to test things out, I set Clear Black to high but hadn't noticed any artifacts. Enhance was at 3. I guess it depends on the source as well.
The convergence is slightly off on either side of the image and I'm working on fixing it with Pixel Shift. I'm assuming this contributes to the sharpness as well?
Either way, I'm thoroughly impressed with the JVC's black levels (even with my white walls). The Auto Iris is a godsend and I can't even imagine how I'm going to use HDR without it. I see now why everyone here is using an Integral.
