I've been a vocal proponent of politely requesting Vizio to allow users to rollback firmware if the latest tweaks cause undesirable PQ downgrades. The brighter corners you're seeing could be the...

The facts say that the difference should be discernible for most people. I will say though that it's highly dependent on the content. To me, the difference between SDR and HDR versions of certain...

I'm not sure I am following what you mean when you say HDR is not natural and is a different animal of non-accuracy. User accessible picture settings are there primarily for two reasons: First,...

Right on. I figured out my issue I had with the receiver. I guess the receiver is set to mode 2 instead of mode 1 by default. You must be on Mode 1 if you want to have HDR and 4K at the same time....
