Thanks, I read about that in Amazon review, I think. Will the adjustment stay put or will it revert when turned off?

It will stay put on whichever input you adjust. The trick is to remember to set it back if you plan on watching something in a different aspect ratio. Incidentally you can achieve the same result setting the wide to auto stretch, however sometimes it may auto aspect during play in this mode after you've made your settings & overextend your desired stretch. (If so, a quick double click of the v button will revert it back).

Changing aspect ratios in Transformers 4

Ugh. This TV fails completely with the 3D version of the latest Transformers movie. The picture changes constantly, often shot by shot, between 2.39:1 'Scope and 1:90:1 IMAX. The IMAX portion is presented windowboxed in the 16:9 center of the screen, but sometimes is expanded and stretched horizontally to fill the full screen after a few seconds. The 2:39:1 does the usual, windowboxed at first, then expands horizontally and finally vertically to fill the screen after a few seconds.

So, the picture is constantly warbling around on the screen, is often stretched out of proportion for extended periods, and overall unbearable. The only way to tolerate it is to disable the auto aspect mode and watch the whole movie windowboxed.

This TV needs a fixed 2:39:1 cutout aspect ratio mode! And a fixed full-frame stretch mode, so that it can be used reliably with an external scaler! Vizio, please!

That is becoming more common with movies lately. Movies like the new batman series do the same thing but not nearly as often. The newest hunger games movie release switches from 21x9 to 16x9 once the actual games start though I bet it could handle it in that case.

It's been awhile since anyone's commented on this thread! Is everyone still enjoying their CinemaWide? Has anyone's panel started doing this? I have a big band of pixels on the left side that start off dark when the set is initially turned on, then return to normal after about 5-10 minutes. Though lately, they don't completely return to normal anymore. If I look closely, there is a row or two that stays with a very slight yellow tint... Additionally, if I slightly flex the panel back and forth, I can manipulate the bad band of pixels and make them shift/change color. Sometimes I can make them return to normal without having to wait 5-10 minutes. I was thinking of opening up the back panel and dusting it out and making sure all the ribbon connectors etc. are still securely placed. Thoughts?

Sorry, man. I had the same thing happen, just on the right. At first, as it warmed up, the dead columns would go away. Eventually some stayed, even after warming up an hour or so.

Since Vizio no longer stocks these panels, I ended up getting reimbursed by square trade (really great warranty, highly recommended!) and have put that money towards an LG 55EF9500 OLED. Still miss the 21:9, but the picture quality is way better, and 3D is finally without all the little stair steps in titles and such. If you can afford the 65", you won't lose much of the scope size.

I have tried to open the back and get to the edge connectors of the panel, but I was hesitant to completely open up the panel itself, which is what's necessary to get to that. If you have any success, please let me know, and I'll try to revive mine, too.
