Vizio P series 4k bug. I am in the market for a new 4k at some point and am watching & waiting mostly for 2015 with the new Quantum Dot tech that should appear at CES. But I did read somewhere about a bug on the new Vizio so I chatted up one of their reps. Below is the info that may help those that are unaware and that a fix is indeed coming:
Visitor: I understand there is a bug in the P series
Visitor: Being unable to shut off the edge enhancement
Stewie: There is an update that is being released in small batches to resolve this.
Visitor: when will a firmware update occur or do you not know
Visitor: what will this update do?
Visitor: I am surprised you are aware of this update
Stewie: There is no eta to when the exact unit will get the update. It is being released in small batches. As direct specifics we would not release that information. It is to enhance platform stability.
Visitor: small batches ...so will this take 3 days or 3 weeks or 3 months?
Stewie: There is no eta. I have seen updates take up to 9 months to get to all the units.
Visitor: thats too bad for Vizio with a new model out, with consumer confidence and all
Visitor: hopefully they get all the bugs out of the reference series out before it's soon release
Visitor: Anyway I am glad to see Vizio trying to edge into the big boys 4k territories
Stewie: Did you have any other concerns we can address?
Visitor: good luck and I hope you clobber them all lol
Visitor: no ty
