The very first scene, after I installed the new FW, I went to was this... that fireball and the shade in the people on the left is a great test.Interesting comparison of MADVR with new JVC Firmware from German Forum (Google Translation)

FIRST COMPARISON: FRAME ADAPT HDR vs. MADVR
First impressions of the picture:
2. The plane hits the building. A flash explosion can be seen. In the background, the sun shines on a building and the blue sky can be seen behind it.
MadVR shows a very fine explosion. Sky and building elements are well differentiated.
Frame Adapt HDR is also no nakedness. However, the explosion seems a bit fuller. Sky and buildings in the background are also optimally differentiated.
I noticed two things that almost echo this but I am using beta 86 with my MadVR on a RTX2070.
The fireball is a bit fuller (deeper color and more detail) on the JVC FW. MadVR produced a great fireball but it was a tad brighter (not a bad thing).
But my biggest difference was the shadow detail on the people on the bottom left. JVC FW raised the shadows a bit too much. MadVR kept the shadows looking like a shadow and a bit deeper/darker. Funny, considering that the fireball was brighter.
I noticed this in several JVC FW scenes. The shadows are a bit brighter compared to MadVR.
Checked out Lucy hospital scene and they both are about equal with MadVR giving a tad better highlights and JVC FW raising shadows again.
I also checked out Bird Box 4k and here the JVC FW did a better job with all the darker scenes throughout. I am sure I can tweak MadVR shadows for these dark ones.
So JVC FW will be awesome for streaming stuff. I need to check later if Amazon will work. Didn't have time today.
