If you get the 1.60 firmware, Vizio is even more dumb that I thought. There is absolutely zero reason why they shouldn't have pulled the firmware by now.

Good to know that they know. I'd be tempted to try and upgrade myself to a P-Series the way you did, but I went through the nightmare of exchanging four TV's before settling on my Vizio. Not even...

Those two settings turned all the way up crush blacks to hell, removing almost all detail in dark scenes. I can see bumping the gamma up one or two, but cranking it, along with black detail at high...

I'm in the same boat. I'm not letting them open up my TV. It's 100% a firmware issue, no need for Vizio to spend money on replacement parts or service technicians. They just need to give us the...

Oh, yeah, that's what we've been complaining about for the last few pages. The new firmware is bugged. In order to turn SD off, I need to switch inputs, then go in and toggle it on, then back off...

Even if that's the case, that's incredibly stupid to just roll out an update that you know will screw over anyone with a specific motherboard in their TV. I could see if we could manually rollback...

The white wash is caused by the new way Smart Dimming is apparently handled. If you get Smart Dimming to actually stay off, the white wash doesn't occur.

So, while you think it's saving your...

So, that support link someone posted a few pages back is useless. Rather, the "support" you receive is useless.
