I've had my M3D651SV for about 6 months now and I've been loving it. Last week (IIRC) I received a notification upon turning the TV on that the firmware had been updated, and I'm now at 126.96.36.1994.
Ever since the update (unless it was just a coincidence), I've been having strange issues with the TV. I have my HTPC and several consoles hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-33 receiver, which then goes to my TV. Sometimes when watching movies or TV in fullscreen through media center, the right half of the TV will be a solid pink block while the other half has colors inverted. This only happens in full screen. Flipping Game Mode off then back on (or on then back off) seems to correct this, and the image is displayed correctly as soon as I switch the feature off or on from what it was at before. When watching TV or recorded TV through the HTPC, the image will blank out (screen goes fully black) for about one second seemingly randomly throughout the shows, multiple times per minute. When playing PS3, the image will turn to white "snow" for a split second, also randomly, but rarely. These are the only issues I've experienced so far (but experience them every day), and they're very annoying issues.
I've tried switching different settings, turning features on and off, and nothing seems to correct it. It's driving me crazy.
I've had zero issue with these things (or with the TV in general, at all) before the update.
Is there any way to manually flash firmware on this TV? Is everyone else on this firmware version as well, and if so, has anyone experienced issues like these? Any ideas what could be causing it?
Thanks in advance. Really hoping to fix this.
