Same here. I've never noticed it either, even on sports. I really dislike going into the SM so for me, if it ain't broke, don't fix it . Still haven't seen the update up here in the Pacific Northwest but I'm sure it will eventually make it's way here.You mean everyone will continue to use it [the dimming feature, by default], and not many people will disable it? Yes, sure. But for the people who found it made their lives hell, a great solution. I've never even noticed it in my own viewing. Well done LG! And thanks to @jk82 for the brilliant detective work!
