In post on June 22, 2014, Playnice listed his calibration settings for the color tuner and 11 point white balance. I have used these settings ever since and have found them to be excellent. I wonder if after the recent update and with the flesh tone issues that have have been noted in this thread, whether there are adjustments to these settings that might solve or at least ameliorate the the problem.

Hello all,

Just bought an M602i-B3 that should be arriving on Saturday. I've read back a few pages, should I bother updating to 1.6? firmware? It sounds like some people are having some issues but maybe there are fixes in there that are worth the hassle? Sorry, bit late to the scene as I've seen most of you had your TV's for quite a while.

Also, has anyone posted post-1.6 calibration settings that work for them? I'd use the Cnet ones but they may not work well now?

Look forward to hanging out

Welcome,

Two things real quick. Visio gives the end user no control over firmware updates, short of not connecting to Internet.

And this thread is for the 2013 M series. A different thread exists for the 2014 model: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/showth...2&goto=newpost

I finally got time to make my service calls about these issues. First I called Costco concierge technical support. I had to run through the factory reset and power cycle protocols, which of course did not fix the issues. Costco can do nothing else beyond that. They are simply adding one more year to the manufacturers warranty. So they had me call Vizio next. Very pleasant experience. Because I had done the reset and power cycle with Costco, they did not have me do it again. But what was interesting is that it appears that my 1.6FW update did not load ALL of the latest settings. He said "smart dimming" should be gone from the menu and replaced with something like "active LED zones." This at least explains why some of us have different menus right now. Also, he had a 70 incher in their office. He went over to it and turned smart dimming off, turned the tv off, turned it back on, saw the SD showing off in the menu, turned SD on - then off, and saw what we see - that SD resets to always on after a power cycle. He even showed it to his supervisor. He was unable to demonstrate the extremely bright display for a few seconds after an input change or power cycle.


I am encouraged that they can actually duplicate the problem with SD there. But they said there is no way to go back to the old FW. And they could give no timetable for a new FW. So I am now waiting for a service call to come out and service my display. They may not have to actually open up the unit. Because it appears that the 1.6 did not load completely, they are hoping that they could fix it by just physically loading the new, complete FW. But if that does not fix it, I'm afraid they will have to crack open the TV. I'll keep you posted...

Looking forward to the updates.

However, on my sets I have the following
  • 1.34 on M65 -> Active LED Zones
  • 1.60 on M40 -> Smart Dimming
  • 1.60 on M47 -> Smart Dimming
  • 1.60 on M70 -> Smart Dimming
I'm a little concerned about what he told you!
