The resolution changes from 1080p to 1080p 12 bit when your playstation or 3D blu-ray player detects you 3D tv and then that's the signal that is send to the Hx850. If you have an xbox360 the resolution will be 1080p period. No need to worry, is perfecty normal and the picture quality remains the same. To change the languaje press the HOME button on your remote, then select the preferences menu and then languaje. Remenber that the Hx850 has an i-manual that's built into the menu, you can see it here if you want to http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KDL55HX850&LOC=3#/manualsTab
If you don't own a calibration disc do yourself a favor and do the following (in order to have an excelent picture quality):
1. In preferences, Eco menu, make sure that "power saving" and "light sensor" options are turn OFF
2. Press Options on the control remote and then "Scene Select" and select "Cinema"
3. In preferences, Picture and Display, Pictures settings, Select "Cinema 1", then turn OFF Reality Creation and Smooth Gradiation. Set Cinemotion on Auto 1 and motionflow OFF for movies and games and "Clear" for cable tv and sports. Be sure that everything is turn OFF in "Advance Settings" except fot LED DYNAMIC CONTROL set to STANDARD(this is very important). All the rest stays the same, just adjust the backlight according to your viewing environment (increase it if your room is very bright and decrease it if its dark, try it until you like the way the picture pops.
4. In preferences, Picture and Display, Screen, select Wide Mode: FULL, Auto Wide: OFF and very important Display Area: FULL PIXEL (for this especif option to appear you must have a 1080p signal feed to the TV, game or movie doesn´t matter)
Ok I hope this will help you. This Tv has an amazing Picture quality. You will enjoy your games, movies and cable tv a lot more with this settings.
Very quickly and not to good explanation, Clouding is when you can see like clouds of light in dark scenes and Flashlighting is when you can see light bleeding from the corners of the tv. I know that all LED tvs have the flashlighting problem in one way or another, but in the HX850 is not that common like on some LED samsungs. When you use the LED Dynamic control on Standar it helps a lot to not have this problem
