Updating vizio firmware

6854933580_2c8b688306_z

I tested a Vizio P65-C1 with the latest update (version 2.0.13.13), and it worked well with the most popular HDR10 device, Samsung's UBD-K8500 4K Blu-ray player.

Unlike Samsung and LG TVs, Vizio's lacks a pop-up indicator to confirm HDR video is playing, but the menu in Vizio's Smart Cast app confirmed HDR was active, and the discs I watched had that characteristic HDR pop.

Smart Interactivity is a new feature on your VIZIO Smart TV that can intelligently recognize linear television and other content shown on the screen and in the future may display accompanying interactive features such as bonus features related to the content you are viewing, the ability to vote in polls, or advertisements that match your interests.

Netflix is easily the most popular app used on Vizio TVs. That’s why it’s more than a little frustrating when Netflix isn’t working. The most common cause of Netflix problems is internet connection issues.

VIZIO has released a firmware update for its M Series and P Series Ultra HD TVs to add support for the HDR10 High Dynamic Range format.

In addition to the new firmware update, VIZIO consumers also have access to even more HDR content in the living room.In my testing, HDR sources deliver brighter highlights, improved details in some areas and more vivid colors overall compared to standard dynamic range sources.The improvement varies widely depending on the TV show or movie, as well as the TV itself, but in most cases HDR is a more worthwhile improvement than mere 4K resolution or other image enhancements.You know that business about how “If you aren’t paying, you’re not the customer, you’re the product?” In the Internet of Things world, even if you are paying, you’re still the product.A software update rolling out now to 2016 Vizio M-series and P-series TVs fulfills the company's promise, made when the sets launched earlier this year, to allow them to work with devices, like 4K Blu-ray players, that support the HDR10 format.
