I've been going through the menu and System Updates and running the check and told that I'm up-to-date. (LIAR!!!!) It's been kept charged, but I haven't tried rebooting it, though. I'll try that...

I replaced a 10-month-old 2015 Vizio M60 with a P65 because why not? I first tried a 55" KS8000 for two days but the flaws of edge-lighting drove me to spend 60% more for the P65 and no regrets at...

Ooooh, excellent points and reminds me I was incomplete in my post as to why I ran my system the way I did. My previous AVR (Sony STR-840DN) had "4K passthru" on half of its inputs, but when I...

I have never had any lip sync adjustment on anything that I can recall. I guess I'm just lucky, but running everything into the AVR and just one line to the TV seems to work well for me. From what...

I've mentioned this before - since the settings are all managed by the SmartCast app, there is absolutely no reason why settings/calibrations couldn't be exported.
