Good luck

Is your TV hardwired via ethernet? I seem to remember that fixing my issue occasionally. Also, what firmware version are you on? I've linked below my previous troubleshooting and discussions when my issue occured. They might have started a few pages back.

Wifi. I am pretty sure it is the latest firmware since I saw it update once in a while.

Cool. Is everyone still enjoying their M801D-A3? I am. I'm not really too upset that the 4k came out, since i'm 13-14 feet away, it wouldn't matter.

Still working great and enjoying it ...I have yet to see another 3D HD set of this size that competes with price/performance.

No, they bought it themselves a few years ago. I rarely watched on it.

Hi guys,


I also have this set for 2 years now and was thinking of getting the P series 4k Vizio set, However, this set is working so was wondering if it can sold? if so how? or should I just stick with this until it stops working?

I'm still enjoying mine, if nothing else has changed and you still are enjoying yours, I'd say just keep it.

I'm upgrading sound. Maybe look that way or something else if you still like the way this one looks?

I haven't done any firmware update as well, I have turned off wifi and am still on the 2014 firmware whatever it was. I do have a vizio sound bar so sound is good as well. At that size I don't see anything out there, whenever I am at Costco I look at the 4k set, but know that there is very little 4k content. I guess I will stick with this setup for a while.


Anyone has any latest picture settings?
