I just received the firmware update to 3.18.2.1164 today. No noticeable changes in any of the menus and its too early to tell if any changes to picture quality yet. One noticeable change was the availability of the M-GO and the 3D GO apps.

I noticed that my 651 also updated the firmware sometime over the last few weeks. I haven't noted anything new, nor have I noticed any any problems.

I'll have to take a look at the M3Go

Thanks

I haven't seen any difference other than M3go which is pretty cool. They offering 99 cent rentals for the first month so im gonna sign up. I dont see 3D on it though, nor the new Netflix with 3D. Pretty sad having an awesome TV with 3D and you cant get Netflix that has it. My PS3 and BD player all do. I also see that this years "M" series has a much better app center. I asked Vizeo if we were expected to get this and no comment of any certainty was received.

Sure love that thinner Bezel on the new "M"s though. With that and a few other minor changes though is not enough for me to jump to the new "M". Just hope us first gen "M"ers dont get left out in the cold here.

Its too bad about NetFlix being tv brand and provider specific. I dumpted them and Fios for DirecTv and now have 24/7 free3D tv on 3net, We record and watch what we went.

Sure is... We have it on DTV, PS3 and my BD player, yet no dice on a 3D smart TV..... sad.

So I made the mistake of letting my tv upgrade the firmware to 3.18.2.1164. I now not able to manually switch my tv to 3d when connected up to my computer. I used to be able to watch backed up 3d movies and 3d youtube videos by manually switching to 3D side-by-side. Now the 3D option is greyed out and the 3d button on the remote does not work. I can manually switch the 3D when using my PS3 so it looks like you can only use the 3D on "recognized" devices or formats. This has really got me frustrated. I am hoping this is a bug in the firmware. I talked to vizio support. They wouldnt tell me if it was a known issue, but they did say they will be releasing another firmware update in about two weeks if everything goes smoothly. Here is a snippet of my chat

William: We are planning on updating this firmware so you shouldn't have this problem that much longer.
William: So it wasn't intended.
michael doe: awesome
michael doe: any idea on how long that will be?
William: I hate to give an estimate because you never know if they'll find a snag that delays the update. But if everything goes smoothly, we'll likely start rolling out within the next 2 weeks
michael doe: awesome!
michael doe: have other people reported this problem or is this a known issue?
William: We wouldn't be rolling this out for 1 person.

Anyone else notice this problem?

Snotty wise *ss reply in the context of it all by Vizeo IMO..

anyways, I haven't noticed this and we watched some 3D today. I have noticed some lag between the screens and my wireless is a bit slower. Hopefully the updated fix will give us more than just that and a better app center like the new "M's". By the way Vizeo acts we have ancient equipment here. Get on the ball Vizeo!!!

I know his remark was pretty rude huh!? My 3D works fine using my ps3 and even when playing PC games that are automatically detected...its when I have to switch the 3D manually that its greyed out..For example watching youtube in 3D or watching a 3D movie on the computer (playing from harddrive not from a Blu-ray disc)
post #220 of 255
Evidently Vizio thinks we WANT this. It's that way on their new M series. I just bought an M551D-A2R and cannot watch 3D movies on Comcast because THEY don't recognize them. I see 2 side by side images but no ability to set the Tv for 3D and it's pissing me off because I have 15 days from Bust buy ( no typo biggrin.gif) so chances are there will be no firmware update before my drop dead date.
post #221 of 255
Wow that is ridiculous!!! I just want my old tv back..lesson learned never doing a firmware update again!! (that is unless its one to fix this current issue lol!) At least you have a chance to return your tv though..ive had mine for about 6 months now so im pretty much screwed if they dont fix it. Well i guess all we can do is play the waiting game..I think its pretty messed up they wont let you downgrade to the older firmware..You can't even go and download the new or old firmware from their website.

I have owned my vizio m3d651sv for several months....my whole family loves this tv.. our only complaint is that when streaming 3d video from my laptop to the tv I can not select 3d mode. The tv will not accept a 1080p signal from my laptop, it sees it as 1920x1080 which does not allow me to select 3d mode. I have changed all the different view modes. Anyone have any solutions.
post #223 of 255
....you would think it would downconvert to two 740's by itself. Your probably going to have to run it through a 3D DVD player that converts up and down or 2D to 3D. I think we are all pretty much beta testers for all this new stuff, only not getting paid for it.
post #224 of 255
" The tv will not accept a 1080p signal from my laptop." Has it always been like that or just since the new firmware? I was able to stream 3d movies from my computer to the tv and manually change to 3D Side-by-side. However, since the update I am not able to anymore frown.gif

I also have the M3D651. It updated to a new firmware last week sometime. I don't have any 3D content except for the VIA Apps in the TV. My DISH provider doesnt offer any 3D content in my package.

If you can tell me how to get a 3D clip onto my laptop, I can check to see if I'm able to see it.

I did check the 3D button on my DISH input on a non-3D content and it gave me the choices and let me choose 3D mode and format, the same as it did before the firmware update.

Thanks

I wonder if there is a way to rollback to the older firmware

I asked VIZIO and they said there was no way to roll back..So officially you cant, but i wonder if someone has found an unofficial way to do it.

never found a way...... But what they need to do and thus we deserve is a fix and the newest app center. The new M series has it and we deserve it also as we aren't ancient tech... Hopefully they dont treat us original M owners like 3rd class citizens.

I have the new update, and yesterday I was able to stream 1080p via hdmi from my laptop to the vizio. I don't know about 3D from the laptop, I don't have any 3D files to test.

Hi all.

Just got this 65-inch yesterday. Been enjoying it so far. I noticed when I turned it on this evening that it had updated its firmware. Haven't noticed any issues, but then again I haven't done much with it and I wasn't operating it before the firmware installed.


I've been playing around with the settings for gaming. I haven't done any calibrating, just playing it by ear (err....eye). Connecting my PC to it via HDMI (through my audio receiver), I have gone with the settings below.
Question: What settings do you guys use for gaming? I'm open to suggestions - I didn't play with it to finesse the settings very long....

Picture Mode: Game
Backlight : 85
Brightness: 55
Contrast: 77
Color: 55
Tint: 0
Ambient Light Sensor: Off


Color Temperature: Cool
Red Gain: 140
Green Gain: 128
Blue Gain: 128
Red Offset: 118
Green Offset: 128
Blue Offset: 128


I still think its a little too pink - rather than red. But at least its more subtle than "Vivid" mode. As you can see by my lower-ish "Color" level, I think there's a strong tendency for over-saturation, so I tried to mitigate that.
Curious to hear what others are using for their settings while gaming....

Thanks.

Congrats on your new set. We love it here that's for sure. Unfortunately I dont have the tele in front of me, but your game settings from memory look very close to mine. I'm always fiddling around with it, yet they look about the same. Ill get the numbers to you when I can. Don't miss out on the 3D of this set, simply jaw dropping. Enjoy!!

Thanks! I love the 3D! Watched a video with footage taken from the ocean's floor. I had the same reaction watching that little bit of 3D that I had when I first got HD in the house back in the day - wow!

Just wondering if I should return m3d651 for the new m series m651d? I got about 9 days left to return to walmart. Any help would be appreciated.

i dont believe there is that much of a difference, other than cosmetic and a better app system which I hope we get... If Vizio is going to treat the last M series as its some ancient tech i am going to be pissed. Anyways, if there is a major difference in the tech then maybe i would do the same but as of now it just appears to be mostly cosmetic.
post #236 of 255
For 100$ more I think its worth it. Just a hassle to box up. Do you know if it is a glossy screen also?

I believe it is the same. Perhaps someone with the new M can step up and reiterate. Believe me I thought about packing up and returning also when I could and even after thought about selling it and grabbing a new M... If there were a step up other than cosmetic then i would.

Same situation here. Bought my tv in mid april from Walmart. Instead of choosing the new Vizio m 3d series I have decided to go for the sony 70 inches 70R550A deal lfrom Buydig..

I love the PQ of this TV but my complaints...

1.) Edges are too thick comparing to other new model lcd tv. It is only a cosmetic issue but I would like to get something looks comtemporarily.

2.) Glossy screen as others have mentioned. I do not like to see my face when the screen is dark.

3.) It is about 20 lbs heavier than other tvs with the same size.. probably because of the thick edges?

4.) apps are TOO slow. I tried Youtube and the first 10 minutes are fine. After 10 minutes it start lagging. The app interfaces is bad too IMO

5.) The DLNA does not work very well.... I tried PS3 media server on my desktop to transcode rmvb/mkv to mpeg2 but this tv cannot play the files..

just my 2 cents.
