Always assume that "by X" means "by the end of X". Then you'll be much less likely to be disappointed. :)

You need firmware 1.2.23 to fix the interpolation (motion smoothing) bug. Your TV will download it automatically... eventually.

So you believe that because a $1500 speaker is of high quality (and the Sierra-2 is very good), that it somehow follows that every $10k speaker must be overpriced snake oil? Certainly that is true...

Ah - too bad. I tried all of the Motionflow options when I got my 65W850A but didn't care for any of them. But I recall Impulse being the closest to acceptable except for the resulting dimness.

Have you tried turning off the light sensor and then manually setting the backlight level? Haven't tried it myself, but it may make the Impulse setting more satisfying.

Nope. I do run the signal through a Yamaha RX-A2040 A/V receiver, but it's set to "Through" so that it doesn't process the video.

Right. Nevertheless, there are documented issues with Netflix playback on the FireTV that span multiple brands of TVs (but maybe not all). This does not seem to be a 65W850A issue.
