I was watching Rogue One and actually checked to see if it was 4K because it looked so good. I put on Okja later and the PQ was great.

I hope Vizio continues to support the display, but am happy with the firmware upgrades in the year I've owned it. I wish I had the 2017 model, but it's not worth the hassle to upgrade so I'll stick with my 2016 M for a while.
Yes. FW 3.3.18.1 is a PQ miracle worker! I wouldn't try this at home, but your TV might be able to walk on water now.

You really won't miss the 2017 that much - because there's really no point in WCG when the content providers and mastering houses are still using rec709 for the color space. WCG will only give you slight variations in color shade detail that you might notice - if you had two display's side by side. And then you'd have to look real close.

I know . . . . sometimes it's sacrilege to question a technology which isn't all that well supported - yet.

In order to enjoy WCG, you need cameras that can see WCG. Most of the current digital cameras are still using REC709. Generally, only film will "see" more colors. The content creators are still using REC709 and they don't like BT2020. So WCG is really about 10 bit dithering of 8 bit media.

And I have two TV's and an 18Gb matrix switcher that I can play and watch the exact same content at the same time. So I know what's going on.

I finally received the v3.3.18.1 update. I put in your settings for SDR and realized that the color calibration settings are pretty much set. How did you work around that to set up different color calibration for each setting, SDR, HDR, and DV?

For each signal mode; i.e. SDR, DV, HDR10 - the TV will automatically load a separate color tuner and 11 point table. For example, all you need to do is play DV content and the TV will load the DV table. It will be all zeros until you input the settings for DV into the color tuner and 11 point. The TV will automatically save those settings after you input them. The same goes for HDR10 and SDR - which you have already done.

And that's it.

For some reason my TV won't remember the backlight setting for Dolby Vision. It just defaults back to 50. My TV will remember all the other settings that I change (brightness, sharpness, etc.) but not the backlight. It will remember the backlight setting for HDR10 and SDR - just not Dolby Vision.

Any ideas?

So turned on tv yesterday and I guess it updated and took me to the new cast screen where theres amazon app now etc. HD channels worked fine. This morning, every HD channel says "Your tv does not support this program's content protection. Replacing the TV hdmi cable with component cables will allow you to view the program".... wtf lol?!?! Channels only work now with receiver off.

I'm googling it right now but getting all different answers

Dolby Vision basically takes over the TV. The workaround is to save the modified factory picture mode; i.e. "Calibrated*" under a new name such as "sircraig" or whatever makes sense. You'll find that option in "Picture Mode Edit" under Picture settings. Now when you play Dolby Vision content, change the backlight to what you prefer, and the TV will remember going forward.

Try power cycling the cable/sat box while everything in the chain is powered on - including the AVR. You probably don't need new cables as the firmware update did not transform the TV into "WonderTV".

This is just an HDCP communication issue between the TV and the cable/sat box and the AVR is not passing the EDID info through properly. Everything just needs a power cycle.

Yeah ended up working, restarting didn't seem to help, unplugged/plugged cables an reset and then it worked. Stupid glitches.

Hilariously enough I bought Shield so I could have Amazon app, now the tv has the app. I mean I also got the Shield for Kodi but Kodi isn't as solid as it used to be with all the issues with servers and devs now. I don't see a difference running Netflix on Shield vs Casting, haven't tried the built in TV app. Unless I'm missing something I don't think theres any advantage to running Apps off Shield vs casting/tv app?

So guess the Shield will sit there all alone and pretty, except for maybe Kodi or if I do another media server and run Plex on it.

Whenever possible I try to use casting. The PQ is superior with a direct feed from the content provider's server vs. video processing middleware ( ie. AppleTV, Roku, Shield, etc. ) adding at least one additional layer of compression. ( H.265 on-top-of H.265 ) I have compared HBOGO/casting vs. HBOGO/AppleTV and the reduction in dark scene block noise is very obvious. Bright scene block noise is almost completely gone, and the clarity, contrast, and colors are so much better.

With that said, we don't always have a choice as to how the content is delivered. I am heavily invested in the iTunes ecosystem, so I need an AppleTV. ( The new 4K/HDR AppleTV 5th gen will be announced Sept 12th - can't wait. )

Currently, the Smartcast Amazon app does not support HDR. The HDR badges are there, but no HDR just yet. That's just a formality, as we are awaiting final certification from Amazon to turn on that feature. If I want Amazon HDR, I currently use the built-in app on my Sammy K8500. You would probably use your NShield - at least until Smartcast gets certified.

The new AppleTV will also have Amazon, so it looks like I will have an embarrassment of Amazon video riches coming soon!

So create the mode, change for SDR, then change source, and then update?

Seems simple enough.

Just to make sure we're on the same page. . .

Go on Netflix and play some DV content. While it's playing, input the DV settings into the color tuner and 11 point. And you are done. The TV will automatically save the DV settings in its own separate file, and the next time you play DV content, the TV will automatically load that DV settings file. Do the same thing for HDR10.

You only have to do this once for each signal mode. When done, the TV will have three settings files - one for each signal - and will automatically load the appropriate file based on the signal; i.e. SDR, DV, HDR10.

EDIT: Hope you are staying high and dry!!

This doesn't work for me. It remembers all the changes that I make when I save it under a new name except for backlight. That setting always goes back to 50 as soon as I turn the TV off and then back on again.

Well, darn!

When I play/watch DV content, the backlight changes from 40 to 50 - which is what I want. If I then start playing/watching SDR content, the backlight automatically goes back to 40. Same thing with HDR10. I'm not sure why your TV won't cooperate.

Maybe an exorcism is in order? lol

M60-D1 3.3.18.1 SDR Calibration

HDR10 calibration is in the next post.

Finally did a factory reset and calibrated the display.
Had to fight it a bit to make Gamma 2.2 actually track 2.2 instead of 2.3 with peaks.
So I can't really say I recommend using my 11-point settings, but the Gain is ok.
Never touch Green offset, as that will lift your black level up and kill the contrast FALD offers.

Thanks for going to the trouble of getting an M60 calibration out. There will be a bunch of happy IPS campers!!

I finally had full access to the TV this weekend, so I thought I'd do it.
Also gave me a chance to perform my first HDR calibration with HCFR's new HDR10 capability. All I can say is that it took about an hour instead of 3 and didn't require me to mess with manual patterns... What a pain in the rear that is.

Maybe an exorcism is in order? lol
I'm having the same issue. Color space is fine, Backlight won't stick. It did after the first setup, but once I turned the TV off and came back this evening, it wasn't working. So weird.

And thanks for the kind words, while many others had issues with Harvey, we we're blessed to be high and dry.

Thx sonoftumble; my current basic Picture settings we're very close to that on my M65.

But not sure how to navigate the menus for the other listed settings;. Thanks

Glad I'm not the only one! I did a factory reset this morning and tried it again. TV remembers all the settings for Dolby Vision except for backlight. It just won't stick. Always goes back to 50 after I turn the TV off and then back on again.

I think we'll just have to wait until the next FW update to make a determination if it's a bug, or an "Outer Limits" style Dolby-Vision-took-control-of-my-TV kind of thing! ( maybe you are old enough to pick up on my reference? ) At least the color tuner and 11 point settings stick!

FW 3.3.18.1 has several bugs that should be addressed with the next update.

Use the Smartcast mobile app - it will make setting everything much easier.

For the color tuner you can use either the on-screen menu's or the mobile app.

Here we go: SmartCast mobile app . . Settings/Picture/Color Calibration/Color Tuner. Then enter the settings for the "Color Tuner" and "11 Point White Balance"

If you use the on-screen menus, the path is very similar. The only problem is that the "11 Point White Balance" does not show the percent settings in a list.

Using the candy bar style remote press the "Menu" button. Then select Picture/Color Calibration/ColorTuner. At this point, you can right or left arrow between the "Color Tuner" and "11 Point White Balance", then arrow down and for the 11 point wait for the percent to highlight and then press OK, and then left/right arrow to change the percent, then OK, then right arrow to Red and then press OK, then left right arrow to change the setting, and then repeat for the other colors, and then left arrow back to the percentage and change, and repeat.

Using the on-screen menu's approach works, but the mobile app is much easier - especially with the 11 point settings. Pictures attached.

NOTE: If you use the mobile app, when you adjust the settings, tap on the numbers to the right of the sliders to either get a scroll wheel ( iOS ) or plus-minus buttons ( Android ). Change the settings and then tap on the number(s) again to enter the setting. You'll be able to rip through the settings in short order!!
