Latest update removed equalizer for tv

I've had no problems whatsoever with my Vizio p series or the smart cast mobile app until this latest firmware update, I'm not sure why or if they intentionally did this but they removed the eq equalizer in the audio settings and now you can't choose an eq setting, this is very unfortunate now because my tv and the volume does not sound the same at all its really quiet and hardly no rich sound unlike before, before I had the equalizer setting on dynamic and my tv sounded amazing just by itself no soundbar needed it was really loud and sounded very rich and alot of crisp sound and great bass, now the volume is so flat and so quiet I have to turn my tv up all the way to 50 just to hear it decently! I really hope they didn't intentionally take down the TV audio equalizer and hopefully they bring it back in the next updates because the sound is really disappointing now! Even with the treble and bass level all the way up its nowhere near as loud or sounds as good as it did before! Please bring back the equalizer choice setting for the TV audio settings so the TV will sound better like it did before I really miss how great my tv sounded now it's way too quiet and not a good quality sound it's ridiculous that I have to turn the volume level to 50 just to hear decently! This is my only complaint and it's only been from the newest latest firmware update on the Vizio p series!

Update believed to screw tv up

I had bought a vizio 65” E-series 4K smart tv 2years old and for some reason as soon as the update was pushed out the tv started to power on and off by itself never had any problem till now didn’t buy the extended warranty because I have 2 other vizio TVs that are 8-9 years old never had any issues with them. I believe they are getting ahead of there selves with there software updates. Until today I was nothing but vizio, Now not so sure unless they prove there selfs to take care of loyal customers like me! I called vizio and they said there was nothing they can do for me so there is nothing I can do for you but let other people know what I’m dealing with after spending a lot of money on your brand all these years!!! And still I went and bought the 2018 version with a 4 year warranty because that’s how loyal I am another 800 so if something happens I will never ever buy a vizio tv again we’ll see how it goes this time please know what your doing with these updates before you push them out! Also it’s Christmas and I have 3 kids so this is a really bad time for me! I thinking twice about giving you another chance and taking this new one back and going with someone else!

Please urgently fix!!!!

Latest update broke the pairing cannot pair same problems as all other latest reviews

Update: just now (about 5 min from writing this review) I decided to use my old iPod running iOS 9 and my iPhone 5s running iOS 10 and download the Vizio app which of course is not supported until you go to your purchase history and download it there. It then asked me if I wanted to instal most recent version compatible to the device. BAM it worked perfect in fact as soon as i opened the app it instantly worked better than it ever has and recognized device instantly. So clearly this latest update is to blame.

Response to developer: My issue? I stated my issue and it’s exactly the same as all the tons of latest reviews…. Your latest update broke the connection and communication with app and soundbar. Meanwhile, previous version immediately connects and works without issue. And yes I’ve reset, removed device on app, attempted re establishing connection, I’ve tried everything possible and no go. I’ve looked at your responses at “solutions” on other reviews and it seems they are all the same a typical cut and copy response to everyone telling you that latest update broke the connection and communication. It’s not an issue with soundbar or network otherwise previous app version wouldn’t connect instantly and work like a charm. But rather, with this latest version of the app you get a message indicating unable to connect.

Developer Response ,
