I managed to update my TV this morning and kinda confused me a bit but got over it when I managed to see that it now looks like an NVIDIA Shield, and the speed of the TV is really GOOD.

It seems that the new update has stabilised the tv allot and made small bugs on the TV fixed.

Especially now I can connect to Alexa again and I can use my TV Cast a loot smoother. Plus the easy navigation is so simple.
