I received 1.90 over night on my 2013 65". Only thing I noticed I had to do was re-run device discovery to get CEC to work again.

Got it on my 47 last week and nothing to report.

Turned on my 2013 M65 today to a "Revised privacy policy update" message. Looks like the firmware is the same (1.60.10-20.0643_125).

Anyone else get this and/or know what the update/change was?

Typically only one port on the TV and one port on the receiver are for ARC (see manual). Must be using those two ports. Also, you may have to enable it in the AVR setup (and possibly the TV)
