Then when they tried to add it wouldn't ring up as free, so they tried to do a price match. That didn't work either. They could have just canceled everything and started over but that would have delayed the TV delivery by a few days and I didn't want to do that. I'll have to go back in Saturday after the TV's delivered and get my X1. What a fiasco... I am starting to think this is probably not worth the trouble that the X9 has been from the start. When I sit down to watch my first 3D movie on the 65 or when that first true 4K experience just blows me away, then... maybe then, will I say... ok, it was worth it. 

believe me, it will be so worth it once you get both the 65" and the X1 smile.gif . lol congrats man! we both went ahead and upgraded, thats awesome! though you will get yours before i do! lucky, i gotta wait atleast a week and a couple days. But i'm enjoying the last few days with my 55" so its all good for now tongue.gif

i trust what my eyes see, not what CNET wants me to believe. I can see a difference between a 55" 4k tv and a 55" 1080p tv, and i dont have to sit less than two feet away to do so.

They finaly agreed to let me upgrade and are sending me a brand new 65" X9, not a refurbish one, without an issue since prices have fallen an i paid over 5k for my 55" last year to begin with. So i'm realy stoked to be on the better side of the two sets now tongue.gif Sometimes being an early adaptor pays off. lol FULL 1080p on passive 3D at last!

What number have you been using? I have been running into a wall getting my issues resolved.

That "hot" notification is pure drivel. CNET is notorious for "who you gonna believe, me or your lyin' eyes?"

As for #8 "refurbished," you will never know whether it's a return because of a 1 day buyer's remorse, or a floor display that's on 14 hours a day for the last six months. A friend was looking for a plasma, and the only one he could find was a floor sample up in NY. He asked what time had been put on the running television, and the salesman said "well, we turn it off at night."

So no internal HEVC upgrade for the 2013 X9 series? Really? There's a surprise! biggrin.gif

From what I've been told (and you know I begin all my semi-well informed source revelations that way)

Adding future 4K applications to the menu of the X1 provides the secure base they're claiming they need.

The add-on Roku type device from Sony had little info on to whether and when.

"Playing it close to the vest" takes on a whole new meaning with Sony.

(note to Digimat: the add on Roku-ish device would not be a "USA only" sale item.)

Well, I'm glad to see that they're not just dumping the X1. Because that one actually IS a mini computer, they can fiddle around with the software much easier than they can with the TV.

Further to my adventures with the 4K upscaling on the Panny BDT330, folks should avoid this player at all costs because it's got terrible chroma problems. No matter what combo of 1080p bit-depth and colour sampling I tried, the Chroma Multiburst on S&M kept coming out like this (look at all the moiré!):



This is what the same pattern looks like through my Panny BDT320 @ 1080p (same bit depth, colour sampling, even the same HDMI lead):



And look at these blue ramps, there's some terrible streaking in the blue channel on the 330:



Compared to the 320:



Basically the 330 is fudging the horizontal colour resolution something chronic. I didn't even bother with the 4K upscaling after seeing that. AVOID AVOID AVOID.

I did find something vaguely interesting regarding the X9 itself and how it rolls off horizontal colour res with non-Game/Graphics scene selections: it likes an RGB input better than it does a YCbCr one, indicating that the YCbCr to RGB conversion inside the TV (on Cinema mode) isn't as good as it is in my 320 player, though the player itself is still rolling off some colour information.

1st pic is YCbCr 4:4:4 12-bit, 2nd is RGB 12-bit. See how the 540-line burst is brighter in RGB? This is on Cinema mode, switching to Game still reveals the optimum colour, 3rd pic.

but are you talking about a "new device" for the X1 player or directly for the TV?

In the second case would be great!

Lee's said the add-on will not be a "USA only" item, so because we haven't actually got the X1 outside of the States, it wouldn't make much sense for it to be an X1 add-on!

It'll be a standalone box for our TVs, no more, no less.

The X1 will receive its own update in due course.

Yea, that's kinda funny, and when its all said and done I will have spent a little more than 4K for the 4K, considering BB rewards, credit card points, and selling off the X1, assuming I can get something out of it. I don't have any interest in being subscribed to Sony's 4K service, so I'll have to wait until we have another solution for 4K streaming. But I might try it out quick just to get a taste of 4K.

Why do so many blu-ray players have a problem with chroma...?

 

The same thing happened in a professional review I read of the Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD.

Guys I exchange a Samsung 65" UN9000 4K for the Sony 65 X900a due the fact that Samsung does not allow to zoom in the images above 480P. I know that keep the original format is the best but I hate the black bars and I always zoom in my movies, and the end is my TV and I don't want a company telling me how I have to watch my movies, I rather lose 10% quality picture than 10% of screen size for what I pay $$$. I love the Sony design, beautiful I can change the aspect ratio which is a plus for me but the problem I have is that after have the Samsung for 10 days the picture of Sony looks wash out in comparison to Samsung, in fact I had calibrate the Samsung to reduce sharpness and the Sony I struggle to make it sharper.

cool.gif.

I suppose that's why Sharp is banking on the Q+ series and if some of you are only considering a 1080p set over 4k at least get a newer type that supports hdmi 2.0



 

Hi, I was in the store and saw side by side the 65x900a and the 65x850a, I´m deciding between one of them, I noticed like in your photos a pink tint in the LCD of x900a, the whites looks very pinkish where for example the whites on the Pioneer in your photos looks like they should, "white", the 65x850a also doesn´t have that pink tint, and looks much crisper with motion, the x900a looks very blurry. Do you know if this is a calibration problem, or it is a LCD problem with all the 65x900a?

According to a SONY rep in an online Chat Yesterday, the BR-65x900a will be upgradable to support Netflix 4k. My chat log follows.

Welcome to Sony! My name is Carlos Joseph Dizon and I will be your sales product specialist today. How may I help you?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: Hi Erik! =)
Erik : Hi Carlos, Is there a difference in picture between the WBR-65x###a and the XBR-65x###a or is it just audio differences?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: I'll be happy to help you.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: There's no difference in picture quality Erik. The difference is the XBR-65X900A has speakers on the side while the XBR-65X850A has it at the back.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: What did you like about the TV?
Erik : Cool.Do they support Netflix 3d?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: Yes, it does support netflix 3D Erik.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: Do you love watching movies?
Erik : Good news.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: =)
Erik : Will the promised HDMI 2.0 upgrade support 2160p/60?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: All the support that will is made will support what is needed to fully take advantage of your 4K TV.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: You'll be happy to know that for a limited time offer, if you buy the XBR-65x900a or XBR-65X850A, you will get FREE 4K media player that is $700 is value.
Erik : Carlos. that last sentence before the media player pitch is not clear to me. Would you please rephrase your answer? The HDMI 2.0 spec includes ####p/60 which I will need for my computer. So it's really a simple yes or no question. WIll these TVs support 2160p/60 with the promised upgrade?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: It will support 2160p a 60hz Erik
Erik : Great. Perfect. Last question.... Will the promised upgrade allow Netflix 4k streaming. I know the new sets (XBR-65X###B) will have it.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: The new firmware upgrade will support Netflix 4K codec just like the new set will have.
Erik : Fantastic!! Do you have a link where I can see that?
Erik : Or is it an internal support document?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: This is an internal document but don't worry it will be out soon. =)
Carlos Joseph Dizon: Lets work on your order today.
Erik : Thanks Carlos. I really appreciate that you're so informed and were able to handle my concerns.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: You're welcome.

I have my reservations that Carlos Joseph Dizon knows what he's talking or if he's just trying to make a quick sale.

I spoke to two different reps yesterday and they both said it was possible... from what they told me it requires a chipset to decode playback.

Anyone know if there are any DLNA solutions for streaming 4k content from a computer to the TV?

I tried Plex server but it says file format not compatible.

I'm guessing Sony doesn't you downloading 4k movies from anyone but them....

"possible" or impossible? I'm skeptical as well.

More info: Or less.....

Janelle G: Hi! How may I help you with your order today?
Smitty: Hello Janelle. I have ONLY 1 question.
Janelle G: Okay.
Janelle G: What would that be?
Smitty: Will the XBR-65X###A be software upgradable to Stream Netflix 4k with HEVC?
Janelle G: That's a good question. I'd be happy to check on this for you.
Smitty: Cool. Different agents have given me different answers.
Janelle G: Let me just pull up the info we have for this model.
Janelle G: What drew you to this model?
Smitty: 65 inch UHD HDMI 2.0.
Smitty: Passive 3d
Janelle G: It's a good choice, Smitty! Plus we have it on a special sale. You can get it for the low price of $4499.99, from the regular price of $6999.99. You save $2500 on this TV.
Janelle G: Will this be for replacement?
Smitty: I know. I don't care.
Smitty: I have ONLY 1 question.
Smitty: Will the XBR-65X###A be software upgradable to Stream Netflix 4k with HEVC?
Janelle G: Right now, there is no information whether the old 4K models will be able to access 4K content/services that are available for the newly released models.
Janelle G: "Sony always puts the customer as its number one priority, and Sony will provide all the necessary solutions to 4K TV owners to access future 4K content/services once they start in respective markets." -This is the official statement of Sony regarding this matter.
Smitty: Thanks. Yesterday one of your colleagues gave me a definitive yes. Do different agents have different information?
Janelle G: No, Smitty. I apologize for the misinformation. Right now, you can trust me when I say that the old 4K TVs do not have access to the HEVC codec just yet and Sony is currently devising a way on how to let the 2013 models access this.
Smitty: Ok. Thanks.
Janelle G: You are welcome.
Janelle G: Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
Smitty: This is from yesterday (my first name: Erik): Erik Last question.... Will the promised upgrade allow Netflix 4k streaming. I know the new sets (XBR-65X###B) will have it.
Carlos Joseph Dizon: The new firmware upgrade will support Netflix 4K codec just like the new set will have.
Erik : Fantastic!! Do you have a link where I can see that?
Erik : Or is it an internal support document?
Carlos Joseph Dizon: This is an internal document but don't worry it will be out soon. =)
Smitty: Was that just a sales hustle?
Janelle G: I know Carlos, let me verify this with him. Give me one second.
Smitty: Excellent. Thanks
Janelle G: One moment.
Janelle G: Thanks for waiting, Smitty.
Janelle G: It seems like you and Carlos had a little misunderstanding.
Smitty: No worries. This is important to me.
Janelle G: From what you have pasted here on the chat session, Carlos told you that there will be a firmware update for the X900A, but he did not say that this upgrade is available now. This is the same thing I told you: right now, we do not have information as to when the new HEVC codec will be available with the 2013 models.
Smitty: Fair enough, but what Carlos has indicated is that there WILL BE (in the future) a software upgrade that will include HEVC. Is that your understanding as well?
Janelle G: Yes, he did say that, Smitty. Sony has released an official statement that they will find a way for the 2013 models to be able to handle the HEVC codec too. However, we do not have information as to when that would be.
Smitty: Does the statement allow that it might be external hardware? Or will it be a software update?
Janelle G: The statement does not indicate whether the update is external hardware or software update. But I am thinking it'll be more of a software update so that customers may update their 4Ks on their own. Don't quote me on that though, I can't guarantee that that will be the case.
Smitty: Ok. Thanks. Do you have a link to the Sony Statement?
Janelle G: We have a bundle for the XBR-65X900A by the way. If you order now, we'll include the 4K media player for FREE. This is a $699.99 player, Smitty. =)
Janelle G: Sure. Let me get the link for you.
The agent is sending you to http://community.sony.com/t5/4K-Ultra-HD-TV/Will-Current-4K-TV-s-Offer-Netflix-type-4K-Streaming/td-p/261659.
Janelle G: That's the link where you can see it.
Janelle G: Did the link work, Smitty?
Smitty: Thanks Janelle. I have to fly. Goodbye.

I would think that if the 2013 models were firmware-upgradeable to support HEVC the manufacturer would've wasted no time in bragging about it publicly, if only just to embarrass the competition. The most likely scenario is that a new 4K server will be required to allow these sets to access HEVC-encoded content. They probably figure that such a fix will be enough to keep first adopters "loyal" until they can devise a way to make 4K work on Blu-Ray, then they can sell you more hardware (4K Blu-Ray players) and software (native 4K movies).

Carlos has no clue what he was talking about. First thing side by side at 2 different magnolia hifi stores the the 850a uses a deep black panel and the 900a an opticontrast panel Wich slightly diffuses reflections. Wich is noticeable side by side, also the 850a is active 3d and the 900a is passive. While I wouldn't call the picture difference drastic playing same content it is noticeable when side by side. And before buying my Sony I talked with red 4 time and each one told me wildly different things so don't trust them

But I might try it out quick just to get a taste of 4K. 

there is no subscription cost for video unlimited 4k. its basicly like VUDU, where you can buy, rent, and stream free 4k clips. I would hold on to it for at least a few months because from what i gather on what others are saying here, it may be the only way to get Netflix 4k streamed into our 2013 4k models. I sold my X1, but maybe i should have waited a little longer because it might be the only way to get the new HEVC codec in order to stream 4k content other than video unlimited 4k. Then again, Bluray 4k is coming, and the ps4 might just save me. lol I hardly used my X1 so i found myself watching blurays upscaled to 4k and bluray 3D most of the time. Not to mention playing with the ps4, so in a way i dont regret getting some cash back from my player.
