I guess you haven't read about the issues with the Sony sets, which I consider worse than the Vizio issues.

I agree that any set with 1.60 has the problem. But my guess is a very small percentage of people even detect the issue because they simply do not care enough about TV...unlike us AVSers. You think...

A "new" board is simply one with the old firmware. This is simply a workaround rather than an actual fix in my book. I don't see anything here that says this is some new magical board that works...

This still seems to fit my theory. I don't think they are installing a "new" board per say that works with 1.60, rather you are just getting a new board that only has 1.34 on it. So the hardware...

Call me a skeptic but I believe we have only one poster with the claim of no issues with the new firmware and that somehow the TV has a newer board which allows it to work without flaws. I don't buy...

My receiver doesn't show the graphs so I don't have experience to help you like others here will be able to. After running Audyssey what were your crossovers set to? My mains go down into 30's,...

Are you sure on the version? Most everyone getting this TV now has it coming with 1.34 with the problematic version being 1.60. I don't recall there every being a version as early as 1.05.

They are simply replacing the board that had the firmware applied with one that still has older firmware. I haven't seen anyone post they received the 1.60 firmware in quite a while so we are...

I don't think the firmware caused any issue with the boards. It's just that the only way to fix the issue until new firmware is available is to replace the board with one on the older firmware.
