It took mine around 3 weeks from when the first users reported getting it until my set updated the firmware. I hope you mean you turned the contrast up to 85, not the brightness. With the older...

I'm also having issues with the banding. My unit hasn't been updated with the new firmware. Does it fix or reduce the Banding?

At this point I'm seriously considering returning it for the Samsung...

It took a few weeks for mine to update. Correct, I created a separate picture mode for Sports that was identical to the Custom picture mode, but changed the things in parenthesis. You shouldn't have...

I never could get blue at 100% saturation any more accurate than around a 8 dE. All other saturations are under 3 dE for every color, including blue. Correct, I'm using an i1D3 meter. I don't own...

I tried to do that, they can't force and update. You just have to wait for it to do it on its own.

It sounds like it was on the initial firmware, 1.04 or something like that. Then updated to a newer one, but not yet the newest firmware, which is 1.6.

Yes, this is a known issue with the most recent firmware. At least it's known on this board. I can't imagine how Vizio didn't notice it before releasing the firmware. I contacted them about it, but...

That's normal for the 2014 Vizios I've seen. Mine has the same problem. All LCDs have some degree of banding, and other issues. The 2014 Vizios have worse banding than other LCDs, but better...

Interesting, I'll have to try your settings and see how they measure on my set. I hadn't considered adjusting the 2 point grayscale for gamma, I only did it to balance gray. Then I did gamma with the...

Maybe your panel is much different from mine. You'd probably be best off leaving the 11-point grayscale and Color Tuner settings zeroed out, set the contrast around 70-75, and set the brightness with...

What TV and settings are you coming from? If your eyes are used to the Standard or Vivid picture mode, an accurate white will appear to have a yellow tint compared to those. But that's because...

The gamma option was added with the 1.6 firmware. If you have your set connected to the internet it should automatically update eventually. There's no way to force the update, so you just have to...

I created a Sports setting specifically for watching just sports, and it is around 5 ftL brighter than the Custom setting. It's basically the same as the Custom setting, except what's in parentheses...

I didn't have that problem, so I'm not sure what you can do to fix it. The only thing I can think is to make sure you have active led zones off when calibrating. After the firmware they are always...

I did. The gamma should be set to 2.2 with my prior settings. I decided to tweak them a bit after the update since the contrast setting actually introduces clipping now, so I could set it using that...

No problem. The results really aren't any different, I just made some changes since the 1.6 update. For one, contrast actually clips now, so I set it a little higher since it starts clipping any...

That's the zone that the logo is in lighting up. Nothing can be done about that. Black screens with one bright area will have this as long as Active LED Zones are on. Turning them off fixes it,...
