I did, and I'm getting Dolby Digital+ from Netflix and VUDU fine, both from casting and the Roku Premiere+.

At this point I'm ruling it as a receiver issue. I'm fine with the optical cable until I can get a good deal on a UHD player with two HDMI outputs.

Pardon me if this has been covered in the thread, but there are nearly 1400 pages and it's hard to find what I'm looking for. I ordered a P75-C2 from Vizio on Friday (anyone know how fast they ship? The site says "30 days" but I'm hoping its not that long) to replace a Sharp LC-70UQ17U, and also ordered an Oppo UDP-203 to replace my BDP-103. I have a Marantz SR6011 for AVR. What I'm wondering is what to do with inputs for gaming. One of the main reasons I'm moving the Sharp to another room and replacing it in my theatre/gaming area is the insane input lag. It's supposedly 60ms measured by various websites, but I think mine doesn't work quite right and is closer to 100ms.

I have a Sony PS4 Pro, and wanted to try 4k HDR. Looking at things, it appears that HDMI5 on the Vizio is the best for gaming, with ~20ms or lower lag, but it's also HDMI 1.4 which I'm not sure will support the PS4 Pro 4k/HDR combo. Can I get away with HDMI5 for the gaming input? Or will it not accept the signal that the PS4 Pro is passing to it?

What I was planning on doing for simplicity is running everything through the Marantz and using the dual HDMI output of it to run 25' cables (decent ones that I expect will work, they're rated for it and have good reviews) to inputs 1 and 5 on the TV, and have the Harmony use HDMI5 for the PS4 and Xbone, while using HDMI1 for movies (and TV, which will route my Tivo Mini through the Oppo for better picture scaling, even though I only rarely use this TV for watching TV). That also means I won't have to switch between picture modes on the TV as much.

Anyways, to sum up the question again, will the HDMI5 input be sufficient for a PS4 Pro outputting all its whizbangs and beepboops via 4K/HDR?

Thanks!
Vizio does not make a P75-C2 that would indicate that they have a second screen supplier for the P series, so I think you mean it is a P75-C1.

HDMI 5 on the P series does not support HDR, if you want HDR video you need to use HDMI 1 to 4.

If you are using 25 foot HDMI cables for a 4K video signal the cables will need to be very good, and have a Certified Premium 18 Ghz certification, the only ones I know of that are certified at that length are Blue Jeans Cables Series 1.

also the ps4 pro is not a true 4k gaming player. i answered this in another post but any console this generation is not capable of 4k gaming. the only one that has been announced is Microsoft's and it will be out this December.

Yes, thanks - typo on the model, my bad. We'll find out about the cabling. I don't have a lot of good options if it doesn't work, but the manufacturer and all the reviews (about a trillion) claim it does. If not, then I can probably get a 15 foot cable to work, but it'd be kind of problematic or at the very least require some new holes in the wall.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

"Supports Latest HDMI 2.0b Standard - 4K, UHD, 3D, Audio Return Channel (ARC), Category 2 Certified,18 Gbps / 600 MHz Refresh Rate, 2160p, 1080p, 48 Bit Deep Color, Ethernet and is backwards compatible with earlier versions" Guess we'll find out if that's accurate - I don't have the set yet and no clue when I will.

Edit: I contacted the cable manufacturer to see what they say. I guess if they DEFINITELY won't work, it would be good to know ahead of time so I can start figuring out options.

Edit 2: I checked out BJC. ~$80ish a cable isn't undoable if it turns out to be necessary, I could measure and maybe get away with 20 feet with the current location of things although it wouldn't leave me a lot of wiggle room for such a thick cable. I'd need to get 2 of them. We'll first see what BlueRigger says, I guess. Thanks for the reminder that I meant to look further into that

There are a few native 4K games on the PS4 Pro. Most games use an upscaling algorithm and render at a lower resolution, though.

Those are cheap cables, ask the cable manufacturer to send you a copy of the certification for their 25' and 15' cables, make sure it is from an accredited facility, they most likely will give you the run around on this because so far none of these Amazon cables are certified and actually work properly with a full speed 4K HDR video signal.

Quick question, re: this quote from Matt (the vizio guy):
Quote:
HDMI 5 is a low latency (gaming) port that supports:

[email protected], 4:2:0, up to 10bit per color
Unless I'm off base, 10bit would indeed be HDR, which implies that 4:2:0 would be the problem. Since UHD BD is native 4:2:0 that means the conversion to 4:2:2 happens somewhere in the chain, which could just as well be the TV. In this case, is it that the PS4 Pro will only do 4:2:2 or even 4:4:4? I'm ignoring UHD BD even though the Oppo I bought to replace my old Oppo can do 4:2:0 since it won't be on HDMI5.

Or I have a fundamental misunderstanding of something, which is certainly a possibility! Even a likelihood

HDMI 5 is only a HDMI 1.4 input and you need HDMI 2.0a to support HDR10.

Matt McRae from Vizio has stated several times that the HDMI 5 port is incapable of HDR, this is a hardware limitation of this input and cannot be changed.

Alright, thanks - misunderstanding something on my part. It sounds like the extra input lag is only 5-10ms worse on 1-4 anyways, which isn't bad at all. At worst it'll still be less than half that of the Sharp I'm coming from, which I honestly think was closer to 100-120ms than the 60 that the testing site reported. Trying to play Rocket League on that was nigh impossible, much less UFC 2. Ugh.

You will notice a difference from input to input 1-4, but you adjust quickly.

Cool. It'll have to be an improvement either way. I'm super eager for this - ordered the Oppo UDP-203 and a stack of UHD BDs since I can't stream 4k where I live (lousy country DSL that's maxed out at 9mbit/750kbit) and it's not super likely that anything faster will come soon. I really wish Vudu and Netflix let you tell it to buffer the entire thing, or at least some set percentage of it, from the FireTV 4k or the TV itself, but I guess the studios would have conniptions. I wonder if the YouTube Downloader works with paid 4k content - I've never bothered because I can stream 1080p fine as long as there's only one stream going at a time

Anyone have an estimate on how fast Vizio ships sets? The ordering page said "Within 30 days" but that doesn't really mean anything.

Final question for the moment - can anyone confirm if you have to be a Costco member to buy their warranty? For $90 it's something I'm strongly considering, but it'd involve a $55 membership on top of it and while I drive by a Costco every day, I rarely have a need to go there since my wife and I are stuck living apart for a few years for work-related reasons and so buying bulk size items for myself has less appeal, haha.

It's been a while since I've checked in here. Can anyone tell me about an update for the horrible FLAD issue with blooming? (am I using the right terminology here? Basically, the light behind subtitles/credits/etc is really distracting as it lights up an entire portion of the screen instead of just the area it's supposed to light up).

I'm on the beta update list, haven't had an update in a while to my knowledge, currently on 3.0.14.0. Just wondering if this is an issue being worked on for the next update, if there's any talk of when that might happen, or just SOL?

Okay. Need to set the record straight. There is 4k pc gaming right now... I promise you that my 1080 gtx will continue to out shine the Xbox Scorpio. Turn a few settings down in the latest games and it runs perfectly at 4k 60fps. To me, this is not the best use of this set. 1080p @120fps is ridiculously good. Between excellent motion and low latency, there is nothing that compares to this set for gaming.

also the ps4 pro is not a true 4k gaming player. i answered this in another post but any console this generation is not capable of 4k gaming. the only one that has been announced is Microsoft's and it will be out this December.

@shortspecialbus as it's been said, you DONT need to be a Costco member OR purchase the TV at Costco to get the ST warranty from them. You'll pay a little more for the warranty and lose a year of coverage (4 instead of 5) if you are not a member and don't buy the set from them.

Even though the port can except 10 bit at 420, the circuitry bypasses the HDR SOC so HDR won't function. It will do 4k SDR.

Thank you all, for the feedback. It is really appreciated. I went with a 5.1/soundbar system because I did not want to spend a big amount of money on an AVR (supporting both 4K and HDR) and also because it is sufficient to me compare to the TV speakers.

Using the Optical from the Xbox One S to the soundbar did the trick and I was able to switch the audio to DTS. The TV is reporting Stereo but since I am no longer passing audio via HDMI on the Xbox One S, I am guessing this is expected.

Thanks again!

Yes it was a very false statement. You said ps4 pro isn't a true 4k system. When in fact there are multiple games in native 4k on ps4 pro.
In fact most of the post you have had were false statements today.

Is anyone having serious issues with repeatedly losing the casting link to the TV?

I keep losing the link to the TV and get the message "Network Connection Lost". Each time I have to go through a reset of the TV.

I have tried both WiFi and Ethernet with no difference. I'm not sure if it is happening when the TV is turned off, or just after a while. I watched 3 or 4 hours via cast the other day with no issues, but a couple of hours later it didn't work again.

Today, I purchased an XBOX One S which is connected via HDMI to the TV directly and not the sound bar since Vizio support told me that the soundbar will not be able to pass through HRD. I also purchased a few 4K HDR blu-rays and realized that I could not set the XBOX One S to output 5.1 and so while watching the movie I confirmed via the smartcast app that the sound was "Stereo" and not 5.1.



I am correct by saying that the sound output from the Xbox One to the soundbar is not true 5.1 and that I would need to purchase an AVR to be able to output 5.1 from the Xbox One S or any other device (besides casting)?



My apologize if the question is stupid but this is kinda new to me and I am not looking to get a perfect sound system or anything (hence the soundbar) but I would like to make sure I am getting the most out of my equipments even if it means I need to purchase an extra piece or equipment.



Thank you!


Uh what? I have the p75 and that soundbar and I get surround through everything that connects to the tv . Go into your Xbox settings and set the Audio correctly . It should not be an issue

I've notice it more with Mirror-Casting the Tablet, but not
Apps with the Casting feature.

If not already, do you have Bluetooth Off? This is a problem
with me - but only when Mirror-Casting the Tablet, not with
Casting Apps.

Try unplugging the Display and press-n-hold the Power button
for 20 seconds and if it's been a while, ReBoot the Tablet.

Also, DELETE the Cache for all Apps once in while.

(Settings > Storage > Tap 'Cache')

For this TV it is $188 with the 10% discount. I was just in Costco last Saturday waiting to see if I should buy the square trade online or if it'd be cheaper through Costco , but the managers at Costco said they do not offer one through Costco because it's a discounted TV and the warranty coverage would only be for the TV bought from Costco.

I'm about to buy my SquareTrade warranty through their website this week.

See, why would you post such a certainty when you did not know for certain? Many of us have purchased a square trade warranty from Costco and are not even members.

So far no one has proved that they have bought a warranty from Costco or Sam's for a TV purchased elsewhere. I really hope it is possible though. Bought mine from Best Buy. I just checked Costco's website and clearly states (see screen shot and link) that the TV must be bought from Costco.

Does anyone know how to purchase a warranty through square trade? There website so you cannot do so. Thanks

The part I'm unclear on is people are saying you don't need a costco membership to buy the warranty, but the language says "costco members can purchase."

I might try buying one when my TV actually arrives (no sense doing it before it even ships) and see if I can get one. Hopefully they consider Vizio an authorized Vizio retailer

Every site says that the P65 is a great set, however I am reading that there are some quality control issues. Also, how much of a difference does the 55" IPS display in terms of black levels. I am also considering the Samsung s8000 and Sony 93d

P65 is brighter, has a higher native contrast ratio. P55 has great off-angle view, brighter colors and covers more of DCI P3 wide color gamut.

Vizio FALD system accompanied by a 2.4 gamma help produce some inky blacks, for both panels.

I have tried both WiFi and Ethernet with no difference. I'm not sure if it is happening when the TV is turned off, or just after a while. I watched 3 or 4 hours via cast the other day with no issues, but a couple of hours later it didn't work again.
I had major repeated issues with this when I first got the TV and a full factory reset of the TV (which I believe is the third of the three types of resets that can be performed on the TV) plus DHCP reservations for both ethernet and wifi connections on my router seemed to solve the issue. Others have had luck with removing the Google DNS servers and replacing them with the DNS servers from their ISP but I didn't end up needing to do that. What kind of router do you have?

I think you're unclear about the whole thing...lol
For not being a member they charger a small fee. I think it was about 5 bucks.... So 95 instead of 90 for the warranty.
