Not only did the logo properly dim again, I think it's dimmer and less obtrusive then before the update.
I tried this as well and while it did work, it has some issues (at least for me):
1) you have to scroll through all of the Ambient Light Sensor(ALS) options for this to work (off-low-middle-high-off)...I experimented a bit and scrolling "off-low-off" for example did not work.
2) I timed the above and it is a very gradual dimming that takes on average 2.75 minutes to fully dim after a scrolling through all ALS options.
3) the worst part about this "fix" is that you have to do this every time you power cycle the tv if you really want the vizio bezel logo to dim. I haven't been able to get it to stick.
Anyway, it's a bit annoying but I'm a little more concerned with the much reported random shut-off problem. I've had the 554 for almost 3 months. I've kept a log and thought I was one of the lucky ones, but I've had 3 random shut-offs in the last 3 weeks. (I've got about a week before I have to decide if this thing goes back to costco!)
I just got the new firmware update last night! Can anyone who's had the shut-off problem before VIZIO_XP22.214.171.124, (and who now has the new fw), give any input as to whether or not the update has any affect on the random shut-offs?
