Unfortunately, it's not. It's a problem on all sources, including the native app. I got the Vizio update last night, and it doesn't fix it.
I'd really like to know if this is something that every one of these sets has, but people don't notice it because its only certain content? Or if it's something I should look to make a warranty claim on.
The Netflix show Chambers just provided the best (worst) example yet. About four minutes into the first episode when they go into the dark furniture store to have sex, as soon as they close the door behind them and are in the dark, his shirt basically washes out dark purple. It's more than the color just being off, it basically looks like the entire area has been blanked out in MS Paint. There's not detail, it's just a flat area. It's really pretty bad throughout that scene.
Are other people not seeing this? If someone doesn't mind looking at that scene in the native netflix app, I would really appreciate feedback.
I'm very frustrated with this. I can set the Apple TV to output HDR10 and it doesn't have the problem. But I upgraded to this TV to get DV and I'm irritated I can't use it, at least some of the time.
Edit to add photos. The first one is SLIGHTLY more dramatic in the photo than real life, but its still very noticeable. The second two are more representative of the picture, but the first one is the most illustrative because it exactly tracks his shirt, and excludes his arm. Crazy.
