Quick question, does the "stretched" picture mode not function correctly anymore? Prior to 1.60, using that would allow 4:3 content to fill up the entire screen. Now when I use it, it's like it's...

The WiFi for the remote is more of a remedy for the crappy IR sensor placement on the TV than it is a "hey, lets let people change the volume from a different room" thing. Without it, it'd take me 20...

Yeah, are you guys complaining about battery life using some cheap dollar store batteries or something? I'm using standard Duracells, and even with the WiFi remote connection, my remote easily lasts...

Pretty much. Zero reason to feel forced into using the Vizio apps when you can buy a Fire stick, Chrome stick, or a cheap blu-ray player for like $30-$40.

Try the "computer" setting. Like you, I feel that "normal" is really dingy/yellowish when it comes to whites, but I wasn't a fan of the overly blue "cool" option. "Computer" seems to be ever so...

While the new firmware fixes Smart Dimming auto turning itself on every time you turn the TV on, I still feel like Smart Dimming itself isn't functioning the way it was prior to 1.60. It still blows...

I'll have them try out the bass setting for a bit and see if they like it. If not, guess I know what I'll grab my mom for Mothers Day. Lol.

Regarding the device menu, yeah, it's there, but there...

You never had to "dive into settings" previously either. You just made your standard calibration, and you made a game calibration. All you had to do was toggle between the two. It's no different now....

I believe the only difference between 1.34 and 1.60 is the added gamma control. If you're pleased with your current image quality, I wouldn't bother reconnecting it to the internet.

When I say SD I'm talking about Smart Dimming, not standard definition channels. ;)

You noticing that with SD on it's still blowing out bright images when transitioning from a dark scene?

I'm wondering if I should just do a full factory reset now and re-calibrate tonight.

Smart Dimming now remains off, no more going into settings to toggle on/off every boot. On the negative side,...

Smart Dimming is busted after the initial 1.60 firmware. Going from a dark to bright image causes the picture to be completely blown out for a few seconds before settling back. Also, Smart Dimming is...

It'll likely come with the 1.34 firmware, which works just fine. If that is the case, I wouldn't even bother connecting it to the internet unless you absolutely have to use the apps on the TV (which...

Anyone with a 2013 M series get the update yet? Judging by this thread, it seems the update is only going out to 2014 M, and E series customers currently.

I highly doubt any currently manufactured sets that are on store shelves or in warehouses have the buggy 1.60 firmware installed. They're likely all 1.34.
