Yeah, good idea. But if the trend continues, I don't see them releasing one with a keyboard on the back, although it would be great.
And I also have a Harmony 700, it's like the 650, only it can charge the batteries. And it's definitely a lot bigger than I'd like it to be, although after using it for a while you get used to it. My hands are not small, though.

Hi All,

I recently got P65-C1 and am really enjoying the TV. One thing I noticed is that when using it with my Xbox One S, the picture and text sometimes become blurry.
(Picture Attached)

Everything starts off fine, with sharp text, but after a bit (it doesn't happen all the time) text/parts of the screen become like shown in the picture (notice difference between "vi" and "deo"). The only way to fix it is to turn off/On the TV and everything is back to normal. Restarting Xbox does not help, and neither does switching to different input and then back to Xbox. When this happens and I try switching to different inputs, they don't have the same issue and are sharp as usual. Xbox is currently connected to HDMI2.

Thanks!

@Matt McRae @shoman94 / anyone that can help please. Purchased the P75-C1 March '17. I'm on version: 3.2.13.3. I have a question and a possible issue. I've tried searching for my questions/issues but this being one of the most popular threads in AVS forums it's like searching for a needle in a haystack.

1st the question. Is there a step-by-step on how to actually input calibration settings? I follow @shoman94 cal settings for HDR10, I then save it as a picture mode. I calibrate for DolbyVision than save that as a picture mode. Everything saves except for the Color Tuner. The Color Tuner for me at least, only saves my latest changes no matter how many picture modes I save.

2ndly the Possible issue - I have an Xbox S. When I connect to HDMI inputs 2-4 with Full UHD color on, only when viewing a 4KUHD Blu.-ray do I get a picture. I press on info button and confirm that I'm seeing a 2160P HDR10 picture. But when I try any app on HDMI inouts 2-4 (eg. Netflix, Amazon or Hulu) my screen goes dark and says "No Signal". I have to turn off Full UHD Color and then I get a picture. I connect to HDMI 1 and do everything the same, and everything works fine. I appreciate any info anyone can give. Thank you.

@Skunka you don't need to make a new picture settings mode for each calibration type. Only for time of day(dark, light, etc.) SDR/DV/hdr calibrations have to be inputted while viewing that content type. The display automatically loads the calibration settings for each type without you having to change anything.

Edit:While I'm not a fan of the new Vizio remote, the 2014 M series remote has pause, rewind etc buttons that work pretty well with Amazon.
I can fast forward, rewind and pause on Netflix and Amazon with the new remote.

This randomly happens with my XBox One S as well. I usually just restart it too. Just chalked it up to a quirk of the system. It's happen d maybe three times total

Yes, on 4K/HDR status/detail page I get check marks for everything except 50Hz. Amazon app with 4K/HDR videos also works without any issues. The whole thing doesn't happen often, so far I've seen it once on start-up and 2 times after my kids were playing Minecraft.

Sounds like a cable issue. Did you buy certified premium HDMI cables? Sometimes cables that come with the products can be faulty and/or low quality.

I'm guessing Vizio is having us beta testing the remotes as well with the new OnScreen Apps. Still it is all good.

1) Color tuner settings are saved per *color temp* and are global across all picture modes. So once you edit the "normal" color temp, that's it. It will be applied to any and all picture modes.

2) I put all non HDR10 devices on input 1 with full uhd color "off", while all HDR10 sources go to input 3 w/ full uhd color set to "on". Non HDR10 devices on an input w/ full uhd color enabled can sometimes causes issues like you describe. I had similar problems until I separated HDR10 from non HDR10.

I made the same mistake when I started using suggested calibration settings. You don't have to "Save" them as the Vizio will remember whatever you change them to as long as you're viewing that format. For example, when changing the HDR-10 settings, make sure you're watching HDR-10 content. I also don't have day and night settings but only one set of settings since I don't watch much TV during the day. I use:

SDR - Calibrated w/ 80 backlight and the rest of those settings
HDR-10 - Calibrated w/ 50 backlight and the rest of those settings
DV - Calibrated Dark w/ 50 backlight and the rest of those settings

That worked! I get it now. Thank you much @skschatzman

Anyone have input on my 2nd issue? Would very much appreciate it.

Thanks for the response @Karnis2

Weird thing is, is that when I connect my PS4 Pro through HDMI inputs 2-4 with "Full UHD Color" on, I don't get a signal what-so-ever. I have to turn "Full UHD Color" off to even see the PS4 menu. Unlike the Xbox One S where I only get no signal when "Full UHD Color" is on when I open any of those apps as described prior. Only through HDMI 1 does everything work with "Full UHD Color" On.

Are there streamer box remotes that have a factory skip button on them - that actually skips streaming content? Assuming that such a command exists, it would be more likely found on something like a custom Harmony or iRule rig.

The first time I saw it was the second time I played Injustice 2 w/ HDR. I Assumed that was the culprit, until I saw it after kids played Minecraft too.

Streamer box? I think you quoted the wrong person. We are talking about TV/display IR remotes. The skip function has been on a lot of factory remotes. It's nothing new, fancy, or requires a complex command.

On version 3.2.13.3 I have a handshake issue when I turn on my computer before my tv (if I don't turn on the tv immediately and let my computer boot up for a few minutes first). It will not detect computer input and I have to reboot The computer with the TV on. Has anyone else had this issue? Obviously there is an easy way around it but sometimes I like to just turn the computer on first and let it boot up before I turn the TV on (like I have in the past with my Samsung plasma). It's not an issue with the video card but an issue with the TV as I have diagnosed. Good the new firmware rectify this or possibly one in the future?

4k if content providers muck it up like this. Also, the quality for folks who watch mostly cable/sports isn't really a home run, IMO. Especially on 75" display

No question that when used as intended -- great source quality, great panel -- this is a great viewing experience.
They do this to show their artist's interpretation of the content, the same reason they shoot movies in Black & White and add film grain and long scratches to the picture to simulate old movies.

Right. Got that. I was asking a question regarding the comment in the post about the lack of a skip button on the new XRT135 remote. Since those transport buttons will be used to control playback of streaming content, I was asking if any other streaming device "box" factory remote out there has a "skip" button - whether it be a 3 min skip or fill in the blank. Most streaming content is not chapterized, so a skip button would not be very useful - which is why I was asking if anyone else out there offers this.

EDIT: Maybe I misunderstood your comment? Sorry if so.

Most streaming content is not chapterized, so a skip button would not be very useful - which is why I was asking if anyone else out there offers this.

EDIT: Maybe I misunderstood your comment? Sorry if so.
I know it's not chaptered which is why I said 3 minutes or 5 minutes. Being able to move forward or backward in chunks is a Time saver if your left off somewhere in the middle. Thankfully some providers recall where you left off at. I never claimed that it was standard on all remotes. It's a feature I think should be on the remote so that is why it is missing, at least for me.

Does anyone have an issue passing DTS 5.1 audio from the display to their AVR via ARC or optical? I'm unable to get it to work, but I could have sworn it worked before I had to get a replacement display. I've tried several different videos streamed via Plex, but anything with DTS gets to the AVR as PCM 2.0 channel audio. I've tried messing with settings on the display and in Plex. I even tried casting some test DTS surround videos from an Android app, but same result. Any Dolby surround format works fine.

I played the same test files from my PC connected to the AVR through HDMI and optical, and they play as they should in surround. Due to this, I don't believe the AVR is at fault. I plan on doing more testing with another TV connected to the AVR, to see if it passes through ARC or optical.

Is DTS supposed to pass through on the Vizio? Or am I misremembering it working before the replacement?
Bump

Does anyone else have an issue getting DTS surround from the display to an AVR?

I've never found "I'm just used to it" as a legitimate reason for keeping film tech in the dark ages with horrible judder and panning slide shows. IMO, framerate should increase more often than resolution. There is no legitimate reason why everything isn't filmed in 90fps in this century.

Now, in an effort to make sure this post is related to the thread it's in, I'm very grateful for the P series very good motion handling so I can try and at least pretend most of what I'm watching isn't using 100 year old film speed.
Because film makers have taken that film speed and have used it to their advantage. Many film makers use it in conjunction with a proper shutter angle as a way to for the viewer to sense the speed or hectic nature of a scene, giving soul or feeling to a film. If you want to watch higher speed film there are plenty of TV shows, Soaps, documentaries that are filmed that way, but 24fps is an art form, pure and simple, that's why it's stuck around. And motion interpolation is doing nothing but compromising and flat out ruining the feeling with which the director and cinematographer intended the viewer to experience. You're not adding frames or making it look more realistic, you're neutering the very medium with which a film maker is trying to convey their idea, and you may call it a personal choice but I call it tasteless and worthless.

Also, The Hobbit looked like absolute garbage, and is a perfect example of how the feeling of a story can get lost when shot poorly. It was filmed at high-speed as a gimmick (trying to be the next Avatar of film fads), not for any artistic goal or improvement, and the gimmick came through as obvious. It no longer felt like a fantasy but a cheap home video re-creation, and instead of getting butts in the seats it drove them away.

I know for Amazon playback, ( not sure about Flix ), you can push the FF button around 4-5 times and the content will rapidly jump forward at about 30 sec or larger increments. The same for reverse. There's also something to be said about casting apps when you can use your finger to scroll forward or backward through the program with thumbnail frame previews to help you find your way. That's what's so cool about the new FW. Old and new combined to offer the best choices ever.

@Matt McRae

I'm really glad to see that 50/100Hz support is back. Thank you!
What I noticed is that although the displays support 50/100Hz input signals, they are still not exposed by the display's EDID.
It's a non-issue for disc players, and most STB boxes, but for PCs it requires creating a custom resolution setting.
On my TV box, which is running LibreELEC, it requires some workarounds as well. Nothing that can't be fixed, but it would be nice if the display just exposed those modes, since you say that they are now officially supported again.
My 2015 M55 has supported 50Hz since the day I got it over 18 months ago, and I can simply select it in Windows or on my 2nd TV box, I don't see why it can't be done for our SmartCast displays as well.
It would also fix the XBOX/PS4 50Hz tests.
