Right, scratch all that, looks like it was a false alarm.

Sony's repair group apparently misinterpreted the lead time for the HDCP 2.2 board, and the B series swaps should never have been offered to customers. They may still have to honour the swaps that have already been mooted, but because I missed the call yesterday offering the swap, I'm SOOL.

How abso-****ing-lutely typical.

As I said before (many times, in fact): Sony couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery. Only they would offer people a brand new TV costing £2700/£3600 in lieu of a part that costs a mere Benjamin which, if not in stock at their own end, is readily available from overseas vendors. And then they realised their mistake: apparently the parts are due in September, same time as the X5 is to be released - not July/August as originally thought - which is a handy coincidence, because if I were able to buy an X5 right now I'd still need to wait a minimum of 5 weeks for my TV to be upgraded, which is over and above the 28 days limit for parts that Sony have before offering a swap.

Words can't express how pissed off I am, to be honest. All because I missed one phone call.

This is the first time I can remember where you have expressed more than a modicum of displeasure at the 55 passive. Have you seen the 65 3d in action? I only ask because I have no idea what the 55 experience would look like from 8.5 ft, having never seen the model.

I've mentioned the aliasing before. The 3D is still some of the best I've ever seen, don't get me wrong, but the aliasing always catches my eye and given all the other considerations like 4K USB playback I'd have gone for a B series if offered for free!

Too late now though, and I don't have the time or money to faff about selling my A series (for a HUGE loss) and then buying a B series (same rationale as to why I won't buy a 65A, also they're nowhere near as cheap as they are in the US).
