hi, I just got the 80" myself, looked through the settings, cant find anywhere where I could check for firmware updates, is it automatic?
And want to hear what happened to me and my 80" Vizio tv?
I purchased it at Sams Club on Tuesday, paid in cash with bonus from retiring. Called the company that Sams Club uses for delivering, boy was I surprised when they said Hello, thank you for calling Sams Club Arkansas. You see, I live in New York lol. Anyways, delivery was set up for Friday. I went to Sams Club on Wednesday to pick up something for my daughter and happened to see my tv still on cart in waiting for delivery section. One of the employees came up to me, he was there when I purchased it, told him I couldn't wait to get it Friday and told him I would let him know how the tv is.
So I get a call from main delivery office confirming my delivery, I said awesome, cant wait. The guy delivering called me said he was at the store to pick up tv and would get to me soon. I said awesome again. Well, here is where it gets interesting, he called me back in 5 minutes and asked me if I had picked up my tv already, and I said no, I was waiting for it to be delivered. He said Sams Club cant find it right now, he would call me back. I said WHAT? lol.
Well, the manager from Sams Club calls me and asked if I had picked my tv, I said no, was waiting for delivery today. She said, there is a problem, will call back soon. Again I said WHAT? lol. So she calls me back again and said they checked their inventory, supposed to have 5 80" tvs on stock and they do, they originally had 6, but I purchased one. She said she would call back soon again. I said oh oh lol. OMG, what is happening here?
Someone else from Sams Club called me back and asked if I picked up tv, once again I said no that I was waiting for this scheduled delivery for today. After paying for delivery by credit card over the phone, why would I even think of picking up tv myself? He said there was something wrong, going to look at Video footage and get back to me.
WOW, Someone stole my 80" tv from Sams Club. How does someone walk out with a 80" TV? hahahahahaa. Those of you who belong to Sams or Costco know there is some checking receipts as you leave store.
They called me back saw a guy, they have his name and asked if I knew him, they told me his name, but wasn't familiar at all. They said ok, we will get to the bottom of this, I think they called the proper authorities lol.
So the delivery guy called said they gave him another tv and he is on his way.
Got the TV yesterday, and wow, I am happy. I originally was gonna get the new Sony 4K but decided against it.
Watched a couple 3D movies and WOW, was freakin awesome.
Now I just cant figure out how the firmware update works lol
