it's not a part of the video, it didn't have it before and doesn't have it on the computer or phone. It's not just one video but many videos have grey bars.

Heads up fellow W9 owners. Just got a new update.......PKG4.491AAA. What it does? Have no clue as Sony does not give reasons for the update right away on their site.

According to the Sony support site here in the UK the improvements are as follows (for vPKG4.491EUA):-

'Improves the video and audio playback
Enables TLS1.0 to ensure the security of internet applications, and improves the already existing SSL3.0'

Valid description for each and any firmware update:

"May improve some things and may degrade some others. YMMV."

Thats not always the case. I havent had a single issue with any firmware upgrade that I have done on my W900 or my S6200 Blu ray player. Now back in the day when I had my 46inch V5100 2 upgrades wrecked the HDMI ports to the point to where they had to be replaced. But since then no issues with firmware updates. Now are they always needed? More often then not the answer is no because they dont make that much of a difference performance wise.

Your kind of experience is perfectly included in my description. Note the "may", and note the "YMMV" (your milage may vary).

Following the TV scene over several years, the emerging pattern is pretty simple: With almost any firmware upgrade of no-matter-which manufacturer, there are those users that cry "problems, problems, PROBLEMS!", and there are those users that ask back "what's the matter, over here there's no problem at all".

Explanation? Difficult. Probably cases of "the system is complex, behaviour of complex systems is difficult to predict under each-and-every imaginable circumstances, and we [the TV manufacturer] have neither time nor money nor mood to really fathom the system in its full complexity. We just program on one single showcase system, and if it works there, then we suppose it is okay."

Thank you both, steve1971 and YDR05. Figured it was probably normal, just couldn't figure out "what." Manufactures should probably point these things out to consumers in their Troubleshooting sections, just to let them know it's a normal occurrence (my 2 cents lol).


(On the side...I see the Army and Air Force Exchange Catalog online is selling the LG 55EC9300 55" 1080p curved OLED for just under three grand, no tax, free shipping...only a thou more than I paid for my KDL-55W900A. A couple other online merchants are even selling the LG for a few bucks less... I know I've expressed deep affection for my KDL-55W900A recently...but please excuse me, while I go have a good cry...)

I need some help with the ARC function on this television. I just bought a Samsung H550 2.1 sound bar that supports ARC functionality. What I have done is connected the HDMI out from the sound bar to the HDMI input 1 on the television which is marked as the ARC port. I have went into sound settings and changed the settings for speaker to audio system with audio out set as fixed. I have my PS4 hooked up to HDMI 3, but when I change to the PS4 I get no sound. Is there something I am missing?

Is there a way to have the TV output color in PC mode? If there is a PC color mode how do you get to it in the menu?

I must be confused how ARC works then. I thought that if I hooked the sound bar to the ARC hdmi on the TV then whatever I plugged into hdmi 2, 3 , and 4 would all work "behind the scenes" with HDMI 1 to play sound through the sound bar.
