I've had this set for about 4 years now and recently I've noticed that it's occasionally going back into Demo Mode and will not automatically set the clock to the right time zone. This has happened 2-3 times in the past month, seemingly at random.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar recently?

I haven't, you have the latest firmware and have done a factory reset?

I am still not seeing the Smartcast Home Screen just dark grey nothingness.... Not important since Casting works but I'm curious if the issue is widespread.

No, my display is fine. Haven't had any issues sense the firmware update.

Thanks, guess I'll try a factory reset. I didn't do one after the second 10.0.X update.

Edit: The Factory reset caused the Smartcast updates to download and the home screen returned.

Every Factory Reset I've done leaves the Time Zone in 'sPacific'. I always have to put it back to Eastern.

I've never had my P50-C1 go into Demo Mode unless I wanted it to. I think since 2016 I did this once.

I'll assume you do Factory Resets after Firmware DateUps.

Is it me, but does this picture look sharper after this latest firmware? Maybe it's just Sickological or som'n like that. 🙃(y)

There is better color processing, one example is the Disney+ splash screen ituse to show bad color banding, now its smooth. This is a low bit depth image, banding can be expected. My guess is the 12 bit image processing is finally being used to enhance 8 bit SDR content. Im going to test some 8 bit blurays, tonight or tomorrow.

I knew there was something better about the pic. I just didn't know what I was looking at, but it looked better. So, will older, non-HD content look better?

There are to many variables to say, source, factory calibration of the white point. Also, how well Vizio algorithm upscales 8 bit 480p content 10 bit and interlaced versus progressive scan.

I would test with Clear Action On and Reduce Motion Blur. Start with Sharpness at 0.

I already have the new one so guess it installed automatically?
Mine never seem to install on their own. I've always had to force update.

Mine just updated on its own this week and fixed the smartcast error finally. Seemed a bit sluggish changing inputs, but will check it again tonight.

For the first three years I had my P55-E1, it never once updated on it's own. I always had to manually update. That is, until the last two updates. Both updated on their own and there was absolutely zero indication either time that an update had taken place. I only knew because I looked at the system info & saw it had already updated.
