2021 VIZIO OLED65-H1/OLED55-H1 Owners Thread
NO PRICE TALK


Release Video


Unboxing Video


I'm really liking this OLED. The PQ is fantastic. And uniformity seems to be excellent compared to my LG E7 which had some moderate banding and minimal tinting.

Out of box Firmware is 5.0.15-1 - 1 owner claims he has no Glowing/Raised blacks on this firmware.

Known Issues - Firmware(5.10.8.1-1)
1.
VRR not working - Vizio working on a fix(work around is to turn Off VRR on the TV and XBOX) VRR still does not work on 4K/120 material.

2. SmartCast Apps: Video playback error(Netflix, Amazon, Movies Anywhere, Fandango Now)

3. Glowing/Raised Blacks(Panel glows when fed a 0% black signal) The panel should be completely black when fed a 0% black signal. This issue is more prevalent in a dark room with a dark scene. The black bars in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio movie glow under the above circumstances. One owner claims prior to updating to the current firmware he had perfect blacks.
Raised blacks still a problem with HDR material after firmware update 5.10.14.1-1.
Raised blacks have returned with firmware update 5.10.15.5-4 - Not as severe as previous firmware version but HDR still has elevated blacks.
Glowing/Raised Black Test
Download - MEGA USB files.

FOMO's Vizio Raised Blacks Video

4. Peak Luminance - No OFF setting(Need an OFF setting to properly calibrate to 100 nits SDR)

5. TV forgets the Luminance setting from the last power On state. To get it back to what you want it to be, you have to increase or decrease the Luminance by 1-2 clicks to jog the firmware’s memory.
5a. Buggy Software Luminance Setting "Every time there is a resolution change or HDMI handshake, the TV forgets I have the luminance set to 0 and defaults back to a Luminance 30 light output in Calibrated Dark. It has the same behavior in Calibrated mode. For me this is completely unacceptable and sloppy engineering. I have never ever encountered a display, regardless a technology, that is this buggy" "The Luminance number stays the same, the actual luminance changes. If you Reduce your luminance to zero and then see if your unit’s actual luminance, not the number in the menu, stays the same."
For example, in Calibrated Dark mode the default Luminance setting is 20 but the light output mirrors the Calibrated picture mode of 60. If you change it to 0 and force a resolution change or HDMI handshake the Luminance light output will default back to if it was set at 60(Calibrated Mode) but the menu still reads 0. Once you move it 1 or 2 clicks it remembers you set it at 0.
5b. Motion setting also behaves like the Luminance setting. Setting change is retained but the software does not remember your setting after every Power ON state?

6. HDMI handshake issues(Upgrading to 48gbps high speed cables sometimes helps)

7. Motion issues(subjective)

8. "Watch Free" button locks up TV. Tv is still responsive but Power plug needs to be pulled to reset TV. "Watch Free" Lock Up Issue

9. TV will set up HomeKit and work for a few minutes but then almost immediately loses connection. I get the accessory not responding from Siri on my HomePod. HomeKit Issue

10. Issue when switching from Eco Mode to Quick Start only to have it go back to Eco Mode on its own.

11. Firmware update notification bug: If you try to update the firmware it will check forever then eventually say it is the latest version, but the notification will never go away. After that the tv will not respond to any inputs and can not even be turned off with the power button on the tv itself. I had to unplug it entirely from the wall.

12. Display hours issue. Owners are claiming the display hours count is way off. 1 owner has owned the tv for 2 weeks and claims the display hours count is at 500 hours!
Owners Account:
Display Hours Count Issue
Display Hours Count Issue

13. Custom picture mode issue. Color Tuner or CMS loses settings and needs to be reset by switching to a random picture mode and back to your custom picture mode.
Custom Picture Mode Reset Description
Custom Picture Mode Color Issue

14. Shield TV Pro and Dolby Vision Compatibility Issue.
Shield and Dolby Vision Issue - Post #913
Images of Dolby Vision and Shield Issue - Post #914

15. TV will not turn ON via the remote or the Power ON button on the TV. Happens intermittently.

16.
Owners complaining about higher input lag in Game Mode compared to the competition.
Rtings Vizio OLED Input Lag Test
1080p @ 60 Hz 21.8 ms
1440p @ 60 Hz 21.6 ms
4k @ 60 Hz 21.6 ms
4k @ 60 Hz + 10 bit HDR 21.6 ms
4k @ 60 Hz @ 4:4:4 21.6 ms
We encountered some bugs during testing, similar to what we saw with the Vizio P Series Quantum 2020. The TV skips frames with 120Hz content on any resolution, so we couldn't test the input lag for it. This TV has VRR support, but there are a bunch of issues and it doesn't work with real content, so we couldn't measure its input lag

1080p with Variable Refresh Rate 5.9 ms
1440p with VRR 6.2 ms
4k with VRR 11.1 ms

17. No 1440p @ 120 Hz support

18. Ability to hide volume bar like in previous Vizio models

19. Issue passing through 4K60 signal through a sound bar from any hdmi 2.0 device when connected to Vizio OLED. HDMI passthrough issue with soundbar

20. Issue with HDMI Input AUTO setting. Auto setting does not properly recognize HDMI device. Setting 2.1 or 1.4 must be selected for proper HDMI EDID communication.

21. Black level issue with low bit rate or compressed content. Blacks get mushy and smeared when low bit rate compressed content is being displayed on screen.


Firmware Update: 5.10.13.1-2 - October 5th 2020
  • Resolves #1 VRR issue with XBOX One X
  • Update to SmartCast. Seems to be less laggy than prior firmware.
Mike Wood - Director, Product Management, VIZIO
I just wanted to highlight a few updates for our new firmware in addition to the ones noted above.

As noted, we've made some gaming improvements to VRR playback on HDMI as well as HDMI/VRR verification issues. We've enhanced the support for 4K/120hz resolution for next-generation game consoles as well as the Nvidia graphics card RTX30 series.

We've also increased the Judder Reduction default from 0 to 2 in Bright Mode to give the image a smoother appearance.

Your TV will update automatically. To see if you have the new firmware, you can go to the Menu and select Admin & Reset, then select System Information to see the firmware you’re currently on. You can manually check to see if the update is available from the Admin & Reset menu and select the “Check for Updates”.

We will provide additional updates and answers on a regular basis going forward. You can always reach out to our customer service team at 1 (855) 833-3221

Thanks, Mike Wood
Director, Product Management, VIZIO

We’ve also improved eARC support for AV receivers to make it easier to enjoy high-quality Dolby Atmos immersive audio.

We’ve made additional improvements to the OLED screen saver timing and interactions with PCs.

I noticed this in the Owners Manual. It seems Vizio is taking extreme measures to minimize burn in. I haven't notice any dimming.



Also the panel is crushing blacks but I gather it needs some hours and some comp cycles to stabilize. Also, it's clipping whites at the default Contrast setting of 50. I adjusted it with the Spears & Munsil disk I have. Sharpness also needed a couple clicks down to get rid of some minor haloing at the default setting of 20. I tried setting it at 0 but everything looked too soft. I settled for 15.

Currently watching Gladiator 4K in Dolby Vision. Looks awesome. So far I have had no issues with motion.

Thanks for the video. I haven't had issues with motion but I'm only on 5 hours viewing time. When I first turned on the set and connected to the internet via Wifi it prompted me with a firmware update. I wonder if he is on an earlier firmware version?

@Rysa_105 Nah, Fomo at least is consistent and knows what he's talking about compared to of course Quantum TV (formerly Quantum Apotheosis) which that guy is a joke, he's pretty much a biased Hisense/Sony fanboy.

He may not be as rude as quantum or biased to his purchase (conducts himself better), but he's not a professional and gets technical stuff mixed up often. I seek a pro opinion, I wait to see how rtings rates the tv. You won't see vincent reviewing a vizio ever. Among pro's on this site, dnice said he'll be testing a vizio oled.

Just a quick update.

The best two picture modes on this set is Calibrated and Calibrated Dark. Calibrated is geared for daytime viewing and Calibrated Dark is for night time viewing. I prefer Calibrated Dark.

Calibrated Dark
Luminance: 20
Brightness: 51
Contrast: 45
Color: 50
Tint: 0
Color Temp: Warm
Gamma: 2.2
Peak Luminance: Low

Calibrated
Luminance: 60
Brightness: 51
Contrast: 45
Color: 50
Tint: 0
Color Temp: Warm
Gamma: 2.1
Peak Luminance: Low

I adjusted Contrast and Brightness from the default of 50. Contrast was clipping at 50. I had to reduce it so I can see all the levels up to peak white on the Spears & Munsil disk playing in my OPPO UHD player.

The Peak Luminance setting has three levels: Low/Medium/High. I chose Low because it looked the most accurate. The medium and high setting appeared to mess with Gamma so I chose not to use either.

I upgraded from an LG E7 and so far the following are all better on the Vizio:

1. Upscaling from 1080i cable(Fios) The garbage in/garbage out rule applies here.
2. Near black and transitioning from black.
I use this pattern to test for dark scene flicker. It performed well.
Download file:

3. Motion(Off) I dislike the soap opera effect.
4. Uniformity looks outstanding. No tinting or banding that I've noticed. No grey slides yet though. lol


So far I'm happy with my purchase. I suspect it will get even better as the panel settles.

I think Vincent would happily review Vizio if they were available in the UK! FOMO is an enthusiast rather than a pro, and he does put out a lot of "filler", but he seems to have a basic understanding of imaging science, and will issue a correction when he makes a mistake. Quantum TV is a full on tinfoil helmet conspiracy nutjob who just happens to make videos about TVs rather than Flat Earth or QAnon.

I already have my Vizio. Expect stats Friday or Saturday. Panel aging first priority.
Awesome! Can't wait.

Honestly, so far I'm impressed with it. It's not going to beat a Sony OLED but for the money it's excellent.

I came across my first issue. I connected my Xbox One X to hdmi 2(4k 120) and the Vizio detected it and set it up for auto latency mode and variable refresh rate. When I tried to play a game(Assassins Creed - Odyssey) it wouldn't sink until I disabled vrr in the Xbox settings menu.

Based on the System Information Menu it looks like the FreeSync rate is 120hz.

If its clipping white, it means 2 pt Color Temperature Gain and Offset needs to be calibrated to D65.

Being HDMI 2.0 only on Xbox One X, you are limited to 2K(1080p or 1440p) @120Hz, not 4K @ 120Hz. You probably should just connect it to HDMI 2.0 port on the TV.

Only Next Gen Xbox and PS5 can support 4K @ 120Hz.

Also, make sure your HDMI cable can pass 48Gbps.
The response on the PQX is worse, the backlight goes haywire. I believe there is a option to change the resolution and bit rate.
