I got the update last night on my X4100. I'm one of the folks who bought the Auro 3D upgrade a while back, and I listen to a lot of music with the included Auro-2D Surround, preferring it to Dolby...

I definitely wouldn't say the upscaling is bad. Our 49" KS8000 is great in that respect. But it all depends on what is going in. Garbage in, garbage out still applies here. It can't make a compressed...

Very true. You could have paused at or near the extreme end of a "fade" from one scene to another.

Strangely, I had the exact same issue, and had to use the USB port in the back of the TV. I say strangely, because I had only used the OCB port for FW updates and file playback from USB previously....

Leave it on. Your box may be sending 4:4:4 in HD and for some reason your set needs to have UHD color activated to display it. Alternatively, you could do a hard reset of the TV and see if that...

It could have been damaged in the move. I'd say it's time for a service call, since vertical lines have been a symptom of a problem with a TCON board in past LCD TVs like the Sony we just replaced...

You need something like an HDMI Doctor between the PC and TV that can tell the PC it's talking to a 1080p display all the time. Otherwise, they will renegotiate to 4K each and every time they...

Your sound bar is undoubtedly taking a 2-channel input and "expanding" it out to all 5 channels. Receivers do this all the time, so it isn't a new thing.

I use the forward port on the OCB with no issues. I also only put the "Image" folder on the drive. The TV has found and installed the update file just fine four times to date.

HDR+ isn't true HDR in that it applies the TV's HDR settings to whatever is being sent- Rec 601, Rec 709, etc. And it isn't triggered by metadata, but manually switched on and off.

Actually, you have to select HDR+ manually, then it stays on for that input. The TV switches to HDR mode on its own when it sees valid HDR metadata in the video stream.
