    Love the TV however I do not like that I have to choose HDMI every time the tv us turned on due to the built in firestick. If I had to do it over again I would not have chosen a tv with the firestick built in

    Every time I turn the TV on I also have to mess with the input, even if that where I turned it off very frustrating. However my remote was lost and Toshiba sent a new one free of charge.

      Hi Rob,

      To change the TV to power up directly to the last input setting, press the Home button on your remote control and select the Settings menu. Then select the Display & Sounds menu and change the Power On setting to Recent row. With this new setting, the TV will power up to the last input that was watched.

    Not Sure What to Rate

    I'm not sure how or what to rate this tv yet, we purchased it for my daughter 2 days ago and unboxed it finally yesterday morning and connected to WIFI just fine. I got all excited because of the big screen with all the apps that she would be able to use etc, then we came onto please login to your amazon account. I order from amazon all the time, we've had a prime account for years, I have 3 firesticks loaded throughout the house, so for the fact that this tv has all the perks loaded into one seemed to be a great option. My downfall is it will not login to my account, I called customer service with amazon through my prime service on my phone and he told me that since it was a Toshiba Fire TV, he wouldn't be able to troubleshoot or figure out why it wouldn't logon....to me it seemed like an amazon problem bc it would load on my phone but not on the tv right? I ended up getting on the phone with Toshiba, he asked me when I bought the tv, my response being literally last night, and he says well you are still within the return warranty window you can take it back. Our team is aware of the problem and you aren't the only one who has called in that hasn't been able to login to access the tv options. With that being said, I wouldn't mind if she couldn't use the netflix, hulu, HBO, amazon, etc right now, I understand that things happen and software shuts down and has to be updated and fixed, but there's no way of getting around logging in to your account on this tv. I tried logging in through full version, which is already having an account and it telling me that my password or email was wrong, and basic version, which just kept going to an error screen and not letting me just connect to an HDMI to watch cable or even a dvd player. Seems like there would be a bypass option if there are technical difficulties with what the tv was purchased for, which was all the perks and apps, but just to be able to plug in and watch regular tv would be nice. We don't live near where we bought this tv, so for me to have to unmount it, box it back up, and take it back to the store isn't just as easy as it sounds. Not sure what to do still holding on to not being able to get past the login state....

    If you are looking for quality-affordable LED TV

    This Toshiba TV is outstanding! You can have not only a 50in TV with LED TEchnology and great quality color resolution, but sound as well as (Onkyo Speakers) and Alexa functionality, it is a wise choice if you are looking for affordable and being pleased with all the features included on this TV. It also have the Sling TV app free for 3 months, and after that $25/m which makes me consider seriously to get rid of my cable subscription. It is really a 4k HDR. Every single color is brilliant and the little details of the picture is neat, You dont need to change the factory default, the way it comes configured makes an amazing picture. Ports are: Lan Port for wired connectivity, RCA AV in, Stereo Jack audio out, Digital Optical Output, 2 HDMI ports, and 1 HDMI ARC port, and one USB port. The USB is just for viewing pictures stored in a USB drive, or as an additional storage for the TV. The HDMI ARC feature doesn't come enable by default, so in order to enable this feature you will have to turn on HDMI-CECIn. The initial Setup is very simple, you can setup you Netflix, Youtube or amazon account and it will find automatically all the Wireless networks available, all you have to do is add your Password. The remote has a simple and intuitive configuration, few keys but enough to manage all the features you need.

    Great picture, sound problems with cable box

    Posted
    Jesse

    My only problem with this TV is that I don't get any sound through my Optimum cable box. Now that's not completely true. When the HDMI input mode in the picture settings is set to mode 1: 1.4, the sound is fine. When it's set to mode 2: 2.0, nothing. The 2.0 setting works fine with my Playstation 4, soundwise. Just my Samsung cable box for Optimum cable only delivers sound through the HDMI cable on 1.4 input mode. I don't think I would get true full 4k in that mode. I can get sound if I plug a soundbar with an optical cable directly from the cable box to tv on HDMI input mode 2.0. But not if I connect the optical from the tv to the sound bar. Maybe it's Optimum's fault or maybe a future Toshiba patch will fix this. The sound settings don't effect anything, just the HDMI input mode.

    Impressive and affordable 4K TV fire TV edition

    We've had this TV for 3 weeks already and it has been positioned as our main TV replacing our aging Sony HD 42' flat screen TV in the living room. This is our first time owning a Toshiba and my whole family has been satisfied enjoying 4K and HD content. Initial Setup: initial setup was a breeze, except for the fact that it needed your Amazon account in order to get Apps installed (I am not really fond of having Amazon snooping on what we consume). I also have a Roku 4K that I bought from BestBuy, so I was not initially much comfortable adding my Amazon account, but I decided to configure it with my Amazon Prime account to try some of the Apps. Setup was easy, I had the TV running after a few minutes (after upgrades). Initial home screen reminds me a little of the Xbox One home screen, but well, this one has access to the different HDMI ports and settings for display and audio. I also added PIN protection to disable buying content automatically. YouTube, Netflix and other Apps installed just fine. Roku 4k seems like a redundant device, but I decided to have it connected permanently, mainly because we've gotten used to it on the other TVs. Display (settings): I was not really bought into the 4K frenzy. Yes going to BestBuy and Costco, one could tell that 4K seemed more enjoyable; however, a few feet behind, HD and 4K wouldn't be that different I would say, but I was wrong, 4K is just awesome. Colors are vibrant (well other TVs may be comparable provided settings are adjusted accordingly) and out of the box, I only had to do minor adjustments (e.g. decrease brightness for the Cable TV HDMI connection). Interestingly, the display settings are per HDMI port. One HDMI port for Cable TV, other for Xbox One, and the last one for Roku 4K, and each one has its own (slightly different) settings. There is a vast series of parameters to configure which I assume can satisfy the most demanding videophiles. Also, there is automatic preconfigured settings that can be used if you don't want to spend much time paying with the settings. We've content in SD, HD and 4K. 4K no doubt brings the best, HD doesn't disappoint, but SD is just not very enjoyable, it might be also because of the size of the screen, at 50" the coarse "pixels" are clearly noticeable and some odd colors may result as well (I would have expected for the TV to make some adjustments to the quality but I think it doesn't, I might be wrong). For example, watching the Soccer World Cup in SD was not vey enjoyable, one game in which the goalkeeper had a yellow outfit when focused closely, suddenly it turned orange from the distance with a halo yellowish effect. Other SD content was more enjoyable though. I would recommend this TV for HD and 4K content consumption. Audio: I was having issues connecting my 5.1 Sony audio system with the TV, so I decided to just give it a try to the built-in speakers, this one is really 5 points, sound is excellent (at least when compared to other devices with Audio that we've at home), it is so good that it feels like we don't need our Audio system to be hooked up (well we will have the Audio system hooked up :) at some point). I am planning on setting up my Sony receiver with this TV (this will eat one of the HDMI ports leaving only two if I want a direct connection to the TV, though). Connectivity: glad there is still at least one old composite Audio/video port available, so I can use my classic PS2 console to play some old school games. I am disappointed that there are only 3 HDMI ports! My old Sony has 5, plus other old school connections. Software: So far, the fire TV edition hasn't disappointed, navigation and the like feels easy enough. Besides easy access to all Amazon content, Alexa is being sold as one of the prominent features. We don't like digital assistants, or for that matter, a disruptive agent that learns what we do and the like, so we'ven't used Alexa at all. I assume we could be happier telling orders to it, but I don't mind using the remote(s) to access what I want. If at some point the "espionage" level of Alexa and Amazon levels down, then I might consider it. Lastly on this matter, to be fair, the software feels well crafted, so a compliment to Amazon. Others: - Remote control felt very over simplified at first and I suspected it was that way to entice people to interact with Alexa. We don't use Alexa, and so far we've had no real issues with the remote control except for having to type the PIN whenever we are making some configuration change or accessing the Apps. - I got the feeling that this TV was too heavy and it seemed to be thicker to other similar devices (other brands such as Vizio). I needed help to place it on top our TV stand. I shouldn't complain though, at least the construction of this device feels solid when compared to others. - Finally, this is our first 4K TV and we may be biased to give it a 5 start rating, but given the range of settings for Video for this TV, I can tell one can definitely configure it to be at par with other more high end 4K TVs, so a 5 is well deserved.
