After about 3 weeks with this set, I have to say that I absolutely love it, but I find the DV performance to be underwhelming relative to HDR or to my B6. I've spent hours tweaking it, and it's just not where I want it to be,

There are some things going on under the hood that are pre-release prep for Technicolor Advanced HDR which will be rolled out at CES this week. This also answers the question as to why there isn't a technicolor picture mode for DV - as they are about to become competitors. I already posted more detail about this a couple of pages back.
Here's a quick summary:
"Technicolor Advanced HDR" is a combination of "Technicolor HDR ITM" (Intelligent Tone Management) – which up-converts SDR content to HDR – and "Technicolor HDR" – which simultaneously distributes HDR and SDR content through one single 8 bit stream. This is significant. This is the future. And no, I don't work for Technicolor.
1. Content will look as the director or colorist intended, regardless of format or display peak luminance.
2. Adapts to any workflow, content, or display peak luminance on a frame-by-frame basis.
3. Allows a broader array of content and is not limited to native HDR content, and will include live broadcast and existing libraries. ( Hello HLG )
4. It will save the industry millions of dollars in infrastructure because there will be no need for a separate delivery system.
