So what we are seeing here is the difference between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 chroma subsampling settings with the QBF test pattern. This is also why you are getting those alternating THICK and THIN lines with some of the colours by the way
Hence, unless you are viewing content that's 4:4:4 you should not see any difference with actual video content when CMD is turned ON as opposed to OFF
Try this to confirm... Set your source device to output as 4:2:2... Then output the QBF test pattern... And toggle between CMD ON and CMD OFF... I'm willing to bet that now you won't see any difference
I'm glad Woofer posted some comparison photos, mine turned out OK, but not as sharp.
I experienced the same thing with the colour space, although at first I didn't see a difference at all, but after reading things here I realize now that I forgot that I had not set the HTPC to 4:4:4, hence why I was getting the thin and thick lines and not seeing any difference between CMD, off or on.
I did reset my convergence though so things look even better now !
I'm looking forward to watching "Lucy" for the second time with my shiny new JVC, it's just light years ahead in sharpness and colour saturation, and now with HDR ! (or as good as HDR can get on a projector with out spending 1/2 million dollars).
I shallow continue to wallow in my SOE, or upscaled frame rate conversion as it should be described as, IMO.
Anyone here that uses frame interpolation on "high" (I know you're out there).
Watch the opening scene of the panning sand dunes on "X-Men apocalypse", if I remember correctly my 300es made an absolute mess of this, while the JVC dealt with it, with it ease !
Sony hasn't updated their FI engine at all, so I'm sure that odd scene is still going to be mess on a Sony.
