I've tried changing sources, doing it while a movie is on, picking other picture modes... but this is with HDR10 selected.

Got hit by that last night. Some 4k disks and streaming content have it, and some don't. Even if they have it, it may not be right. Really annoying. (But there may be a great ending to this story.)
Thor Ragnarok doesn't have maxcll and maxfall. Warched last week, good, but not great picture. Pulled it up last night for some other tests and noticed null values. Said magic bad words. Just manually adjusted picture tone +8, and it was so much beter, rewatched almost whole movie. Quick manual tweak of 1 of 3 controls auto tone mapping controls certainly not optimal, but way better than doing nothing.
Short term solution, (at least for newbie me): print out section of jvc manual with suggested manual tweaks for quick reference to have a bit better starting point than staring at 3 zeros.
Long term: I for one am very thankful for the subthread of madvr on jvcs. When the metadata is correct on really good content, picture can be like Mike said. Forget looking out a window, it's like looking out a hole in the wall! However, when the metadata is not there, or not right, JVC auto tone mapping needs manual help. Madvr will do this automagically, much better than I can do manually, and even update/optimize tonemapping as the movie plays instead of using one set for whole movie.
It's got me very excited again for how these JVC will really sing when the dust settles.
