How does "Ultra Color Spectrum" of the 2016/2017 models compare to "Quantum" color of the newer models? Is it just a rebranding?
Quantum color means Quantum Dot which is currently around 100% DCI-P3. Ultra Color Spectrum means Wide Color Gamut which this TV was capable of around 90% DCI-P3. (These are measured in vivid mode likely)

So Quantum Color has a wider color gamut and it also has more color volume.

My father-in-law has turned mine on by inadvertently casting something to it from his tablet. It was a bit unnerving until we figured out what was going on.


Anyone else in the household that likes to browse YouTube at 1am?
Thanks UT wasn't being used -- but tablet shopping was -;^0) i'll look into it...

Sat down to watch some TV last night and noticed a weird spot on the lower middle area of the screen (P75).
If I'm sitting in my chair, looking straight at the screen, it's super apparent.
As I move from side to side it seems to disappear.
It's not there when that part of the screen is dark, but when it's light, it's a bar where it's even lighter.
Just over an inch long.
Anyone else have/had this?
Backlight "row" or part of it doesn't work properly. Just guessing, not 100% sure about the reason but I saw it couple of times. I don't know if you can claim warranty because of that but it is a permanent defect. It always appears in lower part of the screen close to the bezel and sometimes it's 2-3 "over exposed lines", to call them like that.

I've discovered something either about the 2016 P Series or about my UHD Bluray player(LG UP970).

Dolby Vision is at its best when the player has the color space set to RGB. YCbCr seems to compress the dynamic range of the content.

HDR10 doesn't perform well with RGB, it becomes washed out or has desaturated colors and raised blacks. YCbCr is the right one for HDR10 content.

I tested your hypothesis against HDR10 steaming content and found this to be true. Will try Dolby Vision later.

Does anybody get HDR with FandangoNow? I get UHD movies to play in 4k but they don't have HDR. Contacted Cust Serv but no help. Just wondering if it's a limit of the app on Vizios.

Yes, FandangoNow is the most inconsistent app and works differently from device to device. Some will play 4k but no HDR, another device will play 4k HDR but only 2.0 stereo audio. The only device that I can get to work always with 4k HDR and DD 5.1 is my Roku.

Thanks for the info.

If it happens again, factory reset and monitor. If issue continues regularly after factory reset you may have a failing motherboard

This hasn't been happening with my P75 but it has increasingly been displaying "No Signal" with various devices where I have to reboot the device to get the video signal.

Try reseating/changing HDMI cable for no-signal issues. Fixed mine.

This has been happening to me all along, usually with my XBox One X. I usually fix it by switching to a different input on the receiver (Onkyo TX-NR787) and back again. Sometimes it will turn on showing no signal from the XBox, other times it will seem to lose the signal when I close an app on the XBox (often Hulu, sometimes Prime Video), and switching inputs on the receiver fixes that as well.


Once in a very great while I'll have to restart the XBox to get it to handshake.

That usually works for me as well but lately (especially with my TiVo and Shield), it won't work by even switching inputs and back.

Which model TiVo? I have a 3TB Bolt Vox and never have any issue with it. It's switched by the receiver, just like the XBox ... but the TiVo just seems to work.

It's the Bolt Vox but I'm not sure what the size is? It's the smaller of the two. My Denon X4400H does the switching but I've recently tried turning both the AVR and Vizio Off and I still get the "No Signal" screen. It only works after rebooting the TiVo. I may try another HDMI cable as suggested earlier?

That would probably be the next thing I'd try ...
