The new 1292 firmware is out for the USA version of the tv. It would be great to get some feedback.

Installed it a few hours ago. Watched some YTTV on my AppleTV and to be honest, noticed nothing new or different in my small time with the update.

Agree. Who’s going to take the plunge and report their findings?

If its the same update as the one that was on the korean site last week, game mode is still completely broken.

Installed 1292 and noticed that my Chromecast, and Xbox One icons no longer have the Google logo, or Xbox logo/green box in the smart hub - they are just the default blue now. I tested unhooking the devices and letting TV run it's detection again but alas no dice.

Other than that I havent seen any other noticeable improvements - this is installed on an 82" Q8FN.

Thats my only solution at this point, but im not hopeful they wont destroy the PQ even further so the 2018 models look on par with the inferior 2019/2020 models. Planned obsolescence at its finest.
Got to be careful now a days for sure......

I've updated my TV to 1292.1. The game mode still looks terrible - it's very dim and the local dimming offers nothing, leading to lots of blooming with dark scenes. The picture looks incredible in Movie mode however. I was wondering if anyone in this thread has access to equipment to perform input lag tests. I've noticed some users seem to believe that input lag has gone significantly down outside of game mode - this would be great news considering how good the non 'game mode' image appears. Can anyone test the input lag of movie mode at 4k 60hz with HDR (with most 'enhancements' like contrast enhancer off)? It would be nice to know that using movie mode is suitable.

Obviously, the most ideal scenario would be Samsung fixing game mode. I've complained on their forums, but they seem to want to send a technician to my house, which I'm convinced would fix nothing and waste both of our time.

Same here. I posted on samsung support (where numerous other people have) with pictures, and called samsung. They sent a tech to the house, and he was willing to replace the main board (to get a different firmware) but he had to first call samsung and get the ok from them. He called in front of me and the samsung guy was rude and laughed and said we arent authorizing anything for this.

I switched the TV to standard mode (I use movie for everything else) and it looks incredible. Better colors, ZERO blooming, and high brightness. I notice no lag whatsoever in the few games I have played.

Do yourself a favor and take it out of game mode and dont bother with samsung. They dont care and wont fix anything. I am getting an OLED once the ps5 comes out.

Anyone on 1292 notice any weird brightness dimming? In movie mode watching netflix, when the scene changes to a brightish scene, it is very obviously dimming down the scene.

Not sure it has done this before? I think I would have noticed it since I am noticing it now?

Local dimming high, backlight 36, no contrast enhancer, movie mode.

Why is my option to update greyed out? Not that I want to run the update, but not sure why it’s not available to click on or not?

I performed a factory reset on my TV last night after updating, and I believe it might have resolved the game mode blooming issues. Please try and see if that helps!

Hello guys, I've been looking for the frimware 1153.3 for a while and cant find it for download anywhere. I'm currently on 1132 and would like to update to 1153.3. Does any one know where I can download this or do you know anyone that has this firmware saved in there pc?

I am not at the house currently to check the version number, but I definitely have the latest version of the firmware that is available to download from the TV. It's awful! The local dimming is waaaaay too aggressive. The screen flickers like crazy when it's a dark scene. Trying to watch The Outsiders on HBO and some scenes are like watching a strobe light.

I wish this local dimming crap could be turned off! I would gladly sacrifice black levels for not having a flashing screen. 😔

I don't have a copy of 1153.3, but I'm running 1202.3 (North America), build date November 30, 2018, and have a copy of the upgrade.msd file, if that would help you out. Just remember that once you update you can't roll back with your existing main board.

Here is what my 1202.3 info.txt file looks like:
