I think so my picture looks off. Ive need the calibration settings for the M321i-A2 for a long time. Would you happen to have it? thanks

So, I'm guessing we'll never get another firmware update for this set? I ask because while the last one fixed the awful smart dimming bug, the set still doesn't stretch images properly, which it used to (I know, shame on me for wanting to stretch a 4:3 image), and the gamma setting doesn't save properly when turning the TV off. Overall, minor things, and I'm super happy they actually addressed the smart dimming bug, but I'd still love these features to be fixed.

My M50 has 1.60.10-028.0681_125.

I'm not sure if this is a new one or if I've had it for a while.

I was just pushed an update today. I can post the version when I get home.

Cool, same model I have.

Had to travel to South Dakota but headed back to South Texas and will see if mine did also.

Any noticeable change?

My M471i-A2 automatically updated the firmware to V1.60.10-028.0661.123 and now the screen is flickering.../sighs...been a great TV until now...I guess rolling back the firmware is out of the question?

Yup, zero way to manually roll back firmware. This is why people had to go through the fiasco of having their motherboard replaced when one of the previous firmwares broke smart dimming. Pretty dumb.

I got the update today too, coincidentally. Gamma still doesn't save properly and trying to stretch content is still bugged (it acts as if it's stretching letterbox content, even if you're trying to stretch 4:3 content). Not quite sure what this new firmware did, if anything.

I have always had flickering at the boarders while watching 4:3 content fitted to 16:9 from directv. I'll have to check to see if it's fixed with the latest firmware. Generally there's only 2 or 3 shows I watch that are still in 4:3 so I've never been too bothered by it.

Vizio M-Series 2015 Manufacturing Defect

I use CNET extremely actively (and often) to make buy decisions on consumer electronics and audio/visual equipment.

My purchase of a Vizio M-Series 60-C3 was exclusively based upon David Katzmaier's enthusiastic review of its picture quality and the technical specifications of the product. For the price point, the Vizio M-Series was 30% less expensive than brands I would typically look to first. I coupled the M-Series with the purchase of a Vizio 5.1 sound bar kit.

Unfortunately the adage of "You get what you pay for" held true. This is my first, only, and last Vizio purchase.

Out of the box I was disappointed at the utilitarian design of the Vizio. This is a big, chunky TV that feels more appropriate to five years ago than the minimalist designs of today's thin, bezel-less TVs.

What is the absolute show stopper is the manufacturing defect, acknowledged by Vizio, in the control buttons on the set itself. Upon turning the TV on the volume will incrementally increase to max volume in a seemingly uncontrollable fashion. Only it's not uncontrollable...the control buttons on the TV are physically defective.

My first call to Vizio support yielded no satisfaction and ultimately I received an accurate diagnosis from a senior member on AVS Forum. My second call to Vizio tech support in a chat session yielded this quote:

( 6m 42s ) DJ: To be honest, I am not exactly sure what is wrong. We have had this issue prior, and after multiple tries for troubleshooting, we repair the unit. We have just stopped doing the troubleshooting and repaired.

Read known issue and, if this was a car, would be a recall. I'm currently waiting for a call from an onsite technician to schedule an appointment for a "repair" of this piece of junk.

I'm not impressed with Vizio and, while I may change my mind, with David Katzmaier for recommending a defective product as his TV of the Year.

Things happen! You got a bad set. It doesn't mean that Vizio is a bad brand. I've had Samsung TV's die long before my Vizio sets. As a matter of fact, my old Vizio SV470XVT1A is still running just fine after all of these years. Meanwhile, my 32" Samsung has had it's panel backing deform causing dark areas on the screen and my 40" Samsung has had its OTA Tuner die spontaneously while all other connected TV's are just fine. It wasn't a surge or lightning because it is an inside OTA Antenna. The point is, things happen. Would I still buy a Samsung TV? Sure, if the price was anywhere near affordable. I just bought a Hisense 40" for $139 Refurbished from Walmart. It is just as nice as the Samsung 40" and it was $400 less. So don't let one bad experience with Vizio turn you off as a customer for life. The fact is, Vizio is a great brand and has done a much better job with support than the bigger TV companies.

I think you just have a beef and came here to vent. That's great, but most of us are quite happy with our Vizio sets. This isn't even the right thread for the 2015 model. Good luck with your repair.
