I tested this again last night, I paused the screen in my dark room. It is the same and no noticeable change between the low, med and high settings. It is either on or off now. I was watching Spectrum Cable on my set as well as Netflix.
Can't say that it actually affects picture quality, picture still looks great. But obviously a function I want to know is set to what I want it to(high).
Oh, and any way to login to the discussion board from a mobile device(Pixel 3)? Whenever I try it wants me to click I am Not a Robot and the popup to click the pictures never comes up. So it is impossible for me to login via mobile. Which hinders my response time to these.
Thanks for your patience while we've worked on a new release. OS 9.2 build 6453 is now broadly available, and includes a resolution for this issue. We appreciate everyone sharing their feedback and continued thoughts here.
If you are still encountering any perceived issues using this feature, we'd recommend following up with your TV manufacturer directly to share your experience and feedback around this.
Mine has been updated to build 6453 and the local contrast was not updated. I had received 6452 earlier in the week which also did not change it back to normal. I updated it today to 6453 and it is still only off and low medium and high are the same - no difference between them. My TV didn’t get a -88 at the end of the 6453. Anyone else’s update NOT fixing the local dimming problem?
