Even with the new update my set's presence sensor is at none. Yet the TV shuts off maybe three times a week and then comes on again.

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the HX950 side-by-side with the LX900 TV ?

Interested to see what else you can do to enhance your 2010 XBR-LX900 PQ ? Check out the "DARBEE Visual Presence DVP 5000 DARBLET HDMI High-Defintion Image Enhancer"http://www.amazon.com/DARBEE-Visual-Presence-High-Defintion-Enhancer/dp/B007S08XBS

See third-party professional review:
http://www.hometheater.com/content/darbee-visual-presence-darblet-video-enhancer

After reading all the internet chatter on this device, I decided to order one for my own XBR-60LX900. The device itself is not much to look at ( a bit cheap looking) but it does perform as intended:

"The Darblet is a plug-and-play unit that does not require tuning or calibration and has simple controls, which are operated by a remote control, During the demo at this year's CES I again perceived an impressive sense of enhanced clarity and resolution, resulting in a greater sense of depth and dimensionality, and thus, realism" http://www.avsforum.com/t/1399154/darbee-vision-darblet/30 post # #34

I've had my XBR-52LX900 for just under two years now, and I have been having a recurring problem with the automatic shut off on the television.

Basically, the entire unit will shut off and then turn back on immediately - the way it would with the power saver function enabled. However, I have had the power saver and all other presence sensor functions turned off completely. Everything - distance sensor, eco saver, etc. - has been entirely disabled, and yet the television continues to turn off automatically.

The problem is completely intermittent - there is no predicting when the unit will turn off. Sometimes I will go months without the problem occurring, and other times - like last night - the TV will shut off and turn back on four times in a two-hour period. The amount that I use the television does not vary from week to week.

I have called Sony customer support twice about the issue, and nothing seems to solve the problem. I have checked to make sure all plugs are connected tightly, etc. My software is fully updated, and last night the support technician had me totally reset the television and settings. Nevertheless, the problem happened twice again this morning.

I have two theories on what may be causing this issue:

First, the presence sensor camera may be failing. In fact, after the Sony Support technician had me reset the TV last ngiht, I tried to make sure all presence sensor functions were turned off. When I went into the preferences, I received a message saying the presence sensor could not be updated because the camera was not working. Essentially, it seemed that the camera had failed entirely. Nevertheless, this morning I was able to go in and update the presence sensor settings, as the camera was seemingly working again. So my theory is that, if the sensor is in the process of failing or is completely non-functional, this may be confusing the television's software and causing the automatic shutoff to come into play - even though I have all power saver and presence sensor settings turned off.

Second, there may be an issue with the power supply board, which is causing the television to turn off regardless of the presence sensor settings.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this issue and whether either of my two theories may be correct. Is this a problem anyone else has encountered with the XBR-52LX900?

So maybe a few people still own this TV or know about it.

But this might be more of a general question that doesn't have much to do with the TV.

I'm trying to play 4K mp4 videos on this TV (rendered in h.264 format), but am not having any success.

I know that it isn't going to play it at 4K resolution, but I was hoping to still view the video at 1080. Whenever I play it through my PS4 (media center) and Roku3 (Plex) I get error messages that the format cannot be displayed. The videos all reside on my DS415play network server.

Is this because of the TV, or do I just need to upgrade those devices to either a PS4 Pro or Ruku Premiere in order for them to be able to convert the video from 4K to 1080 and display it on the TV? Or maybe I will just need to wait until I replace this with a 4K TV at some point?

I have a Sony4K TV upstairs and the videos play fine via the Android app that came installed on the TV.

Thanks, and if you think that there might be a better thread to work this problem out please point me towards it
