My U.S. model XBR-55HX929 has SW version PKG4.027AAA, and shows no updates available. Confirmed on the Sony product support webpage:



That's true.

What firmware version is your set currently running (see Settings > Product Support > Contact Sony) and where are you located? Also, which specific Sony model do you have?

Are you connecting the TV directly to your router via ethernet cable prior to attempting the update?

If you are in the U.S., have an earlier FW version, and want to upgrade to PKG4.027AAA, it should be doable over a reliable internet connection.

I have successfully connected the TV to the internet both through WiFi and ethernet but with no updates able to be fetched. The model is the XBR-55HX929 with software PKG3.507AAA, and I'm in California.

In that case I would email Sony Support with your issue. It seems to me an anomaly that your set cannot find and download the FW update.

(Sorry for the delayed response; I was away on vacation.)
