D3? You mean Diablo 3? That shouldn't have much of a problem running at 4k
Yeah. It ran really well. I enjoyed it.

Read the first post in this thread carefully.

Enjoy. :)
Thanks. I have been trying to look over a bunch of information in this thread. I am late to the party apparently.

I just had a small issue. My dropdown menus were just black boxes. I rebooted and everything has been fine. Anyone else have this happen before? I had a few things running, mainly just loaded Steam.

Would it be ridiculous to expect 0 dead pixels and return until I get one as such?
I thought Vizio has a zero dead pixel warranty.

A few pages back Matt McRae mentioned gettin touch with Support if we have the yellow banding. On my P65-C1 I can clearly see yellow banding every half foot or so across the screen.

I'd like to discuss this with Vizio, but I'm hesitant to open a ticket so soon. As in, what if panels in a month from now don't have that issue?

Definitely not ridiculous to expect 0 dead pixels. I have the P55 and haven't found any dead pixels. I've been keeping up with most of this thread and dead pixels doesn't seem to be brought up very much so the quality seems to be good. I would say just get the display and take it from there.

ARC update

I've had audio dropouts for 5 seconds every half hour or so for 2 months.
My setup was Vizio cable from Directv to input 2 , Amazon cable from input 1(ARC) to my receiver.

A week ago I bought 2 Audioquest Chocolate 2 meter HDMI cables.
I used one to replace my ARC cable hoping it was a handshake issue but it made no difference. I still had audio dropouts.
Today just for kicks I replaced the Vizio cable with the other Audioquest cable and just like that no dropouts!!

Just to test I used the Vizio cable for ARC and still no dropouts on Directv but I did have them on Netflix.
Swapped back in the Audioquest cable and no dropouts anywhere. It's been 6 hours with no audio problems. I'm very happy.

The moral of the story is cheap-ass HDMI cables just don't cut it anymore. I probably went overboard with the Chocolate cables.
I'll probably try a Blue Jeans cable for my K8500 Bluray and soon to be built 4k PC.

I just updated my TV set and picture fractured for my computer. The picture is split in half and then half and half again. It is really weird. Any ideas? I can't post links until at least five posts.

Sat down tonight to watch King Fu Panda 3 with the family in Vudu (HDX). Got 33 minutes into it and the app completely froze. Had to unplug the tv and reboot it. Still can't get it to reconnect to vudu. Streaming it through my TiVo Bolt. Is this a common issue and how can I fix it?

My version is 1.1.6.12 and my cast is 1.18.60081

Isn't it just infuriating? Were your audio dropouts only while casting or from the DTV receiver as well? I've heard that that an entire integration can affect things in spite of whether an input/cable is in use. It's so easy to hate HDMI and HDCP.

Why are you streaming VUDU through your Tivo vs. using the casting VUDU app?

Sounds like he was thru the display first. Now he's streaming thru his tivo.

ahh... I thought maybe there was a VUDU app on the TIVO Bolt.

Check and make sure you've updated your VUDU app as well. The VUDU app has been a bit buggy since the latest firmware release. Not sure if your problem is related.

I'm sure there is... But it was just the way I read it I guess... Lol

I had dropouts from Directv and while casting.
I almost miss the thing popping up telling me it found the receiver. :cool:

Yes the TiVo bolt has a native vudu app so I was using that, sorry. I updated all of the apps this afternoon when I setup the tv. It was odd that it made the tv completely unresponsive when it crashed to the extent I had to unplug it. It wasn't a huge deal since it is only the HDX and not a UHD version but it was definitely annoying.

Tried casting again. It worked but if I fast forwarded to where it stopped working it crashes again. Not sure if it's a buffering issue or the app or something else. My internet is 150/150 and the tv is hooked up via Ethernet.

I'm replacing every cable in my integration. BJC FE should do the job for the short ones. I put the 35ft series 1 in the wall on Thursday. After that it becomes a limitation of the technology over length. It does seem some AVR's have better chipsets than others though. I love my Pioneer SC elite but it's a finicky when it comes to signals.

They have a zero bright pixel policy.

As far as the yellow banding -- if you can see it in regular viewing, I'd recommend exchanging it. If not, I'd recommend holding on to the TV for a little while longer to see if Vizio fixes the problem through a hardware revision or a firmware update.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the difference?
This

What is a Bright Pixel?
A bright pixel is a pixel that is locked in the "on" position. Bright pixels can appear as any bright color although they will typically appear as red or green and will stand out against a dark background. An easy way to identify a bright pixel is to pause a DVD or DVR in a dark scene or completely black scene like between commercials. Any flat color screen like the no signal screen may hide the bright pixel as the pixel could be stuck in that color. Bright pixels tend to change color a little bit even though they are stuck on.

The key is what do you have to do to see that dead pixel. It's meaningless if you can't see it during normal viewing and you are paying attention to what you're watching.

It would be rediculous to return a set where you don't see the dead pixel and wind up with some other problem that you do see constantly. ;)
