Thanks for the quick respnse Johnny
As of right now I only have an antenna to get HD OTA signals just to watch football once in a while. I might get a cable subscription later on if I feel like watching more TV.
Are there any non-powered 3D glasses? like the ones in theaters?
It uses active shutter glasses, so they are all powered.
As for the coax connection, perhaps someone can better help you. I can't tell from the picture. Is it broken or simply removed?
There are convertor boxes that have a coaxial cable 'in' and a HDMI 'out'.
I was told on another forum that the KDL-40HX800 can only show movies through DVD and BluRay. That you can't watch movies from downloaded files, connected via your computor or USB memory. Is that true?
I am about to buy a used 40HX800, but if it can't play movie files I am hesitant. That would make its use very limited.
I have now seen on the Sony support page that certain files can be played on HX800 from the computor or USB. But will it be "blocky"? Is it not possible to watch HD-material appropriately?
Above quote is taken from the "Official Sony XBR4/XBR5 calibration" thread. http://www.avsforum.com/t/893076/official-sony-xbr4-xbr5-calibration-thread/5430
Can the KDL-40HX800 reproduce the same kind of strange colors that KDL-40XBR2 could, like this poisonous slimy green color above?
Thanks for any help.
I am considering purchasing a soundbar that is a good match for it.
I would like to stay under $300.00, if possible.
I know we have a soundbar forum, but wanted Sony owners feedback.
Thanks in advance for your guidance.
I have a 55hx800 I bought off Craigslist a few months ago. It didn't come with a stand. I'm wondering does the TV normally come with a stand or does everyone use a universal stand?
I'm considering buying this. Is it the original?
setup - firetv to tv via hdmi, then tv to soundbar via optical out
question: can i get the tv to output 5.1 via optical out while still using the tv speakers?
when i set speakers to "tv speakers" : tv speakers work but output from optical out is also pcm and not 5.1
when i set speakers to "audio system": tv speakers stop working, optical out outputs 5.1
My 40" HX800 is still going strong as a guest room/game console screen. A brand spanking new Xbox One has been connected to it and it looks killer The XBR 929 that replaced my 55" HX800 is still looking amazing and I'm glad I stuck with Sony when I did; their follow-on offerings seem to be lacking, more & more.
