I have the same problem with my laptop. I got it to work once, and then never again. Tried the same as you - removing the device from the tv and trying to repair it - no luck. Have not tried to mirror my Galaxy S5, though I suspect I will have the same trouble. I eventually gave up and decided its something I will not use much or care about. That said, please share if you find a fix, as it would be convenient for the occasional use.

I was able to pick this up on preorder from yesasia.com - region-free

I don´t know about shipping costs, or shipping speed, but you could always use the german Amazon, www.amazon.de, to order your copy of Noah 3D. We actually get a standard amaray and a steelbook and it should be english friendly...




BTW: Did someone notice any changes after the latest firmware update? Not quality wise, but what was changed?

It does have an English track but I don't know any German and Amazon.de doesn't make it clear that it is region free - at least that I can understand.

Never thought about region coding the other way round (being from Germany)... Sorry, but as soon as I get a copy I´ll get back to you, for those that can wait the extra time. I have a US player, so I can check whether it works or not.

What is the purpose of the "IR In" and "Serial Control" on the rear of the television. Can you just plug in an LED IR extender and have it send remote control signals aimed at the TV?

That would be my guess. I had a samsung TV in the past, and that is exactly what it was used for.

Will do. I think it is a S4 problem. My wife has the exact same phone and the Mirroring works just fine. However I did see in this thread that the last FW update did something to supposedly improve Screen Mirroring. Samsung remotely went into my phone and changed some settings but it did not help. Got disconnected from them will try again.

This has happened 3 times already with my 65X900A while accessing my DLNA servers
First I'm watching a movie and out of nowhere if I press return or home (I assume every other button will do the same)
The TV enters some sort of sleep mode and if I press something on the remote the LED will blink but that's it.
If I turn OFF and back ON it remains the same so I unplug from wall and plug it back it starts working fine again.

This problem is starting to get to my nerves cuz it's really frustrating to see a high end TV that answers to the remote functions with just a blinking LED light

Has anyone here experienced something like this???

What DLNA server do you use. I use PC free Tversity - a very old version before they bundled in all of the codecs. Sony TV recognized it as soon as it was on the network and never had a problem once (pics and vids at least)

Look at your eco settings.
There is an option to have the TV go to sleep if it detects nobody in the room. I have this disabled on my TV and have never experienced this but it sounds like that is what may be happening in your case.

While there seems to be a lull in the forum . How about some advice on the sound settings on my 65X900A (from folks that are actually using them)? I see that there is an equalizer, etc in the audio settings. I use the TV speakers for Dish Network, Netflix, Amazon.
Suggestions?
Thanks, Gerry

First thing is add more gain at the preamp input. Use "volume offset" and raise it to max or almost max. Season to taste on EQ, but a boost in the low end helps, and dialogue can be brought forward in the third and fourth EQ bands. For a bit more snap, tweek the high end.

I don't use any of the other options.

Well Actually I already tried these 4: Serviio(most compatible), Plex(Most features), Tversity, Mediabrowser
Problem reproduced on the first two.

You are totally right I also assumed that was the problem and checked my ECO settings and had it like this:
Power Savings off
Scene Select Sync off
Light Sensor on
Idle TV standyby 2hr
Auto Shut-off on

The thing is if I let the TV idle it turns off as it should and then I can Turn back on no problems.
But when the problem occurs it's always watching a movie over DLNA, I press return or whatever and it shuts the screen OFF like when you press "PIC. OFF", afterwards I can Turn OFF the TV and back on and still get the regular white LED that blinks if you press a button on the remote but that's it, unplug from wall and lug back in so I get the antenna input and everything back to normal.

Now I'm trying with the last 2 options at echo screen OFF It's been like that a day or so, "Crossing Fingers"

Has anyone experienced something like this?

When watching regular TV, an artificial "seam" would appear directly down the center of the image. I noticed it on a car commercial when a car drives by, and it looks like there is a slight distortion causing the left and right half of the screen to be slightly out of sync. It is hard to describe without a picture, but the best I can think of is in a scifi movie where a person walks through a force field or something, there is a little blurred distortion as you see their body move through the field with one part of their body going through first but a slight delay from the other side. I saw it during at least 2 commercials so I don't think it was the actual commercial. I turned off motionflow from standard and cinemotion and it seemed to go away. I turned them back on and haven't seen that effect since. Does anyone think motionflow or other processing works like that on only half of the screen at once to cause this?

It sounds more like an effect similar to side by side 3D.
That puts 2 images on the screen beside each other.

Paramount releases are region free, so should be ok, but you can confirm thanks

hi peoples just wondering can I plug my Computer into the HDMI port of the TV so I get 4K resolution and still get the 7.1 sound signal to the AVR via the ARC HDMI from the TV? I have a Denon X4000 but I think 4K isnt working well through it. Any help would be great. Cheers

Does anyone know how I would be able to see my MacBook Pro laptop screen show up on the Sony set either wireless or hard wired.
Is there some sort of software I need to download or set up settings on my Mac?

Should be able to use screen mirroring, I use it running my Sony Tap 21(biggest damn tablet ever ) to the TV. I'm not familiar with Apple products, but assume it should have a similar function (name)..Check in the display properties of the Mac, should be something referring to screen sharing. .

Just to update you, they granted my request to change models. It was nearly an identical price swap though. They did ask if I wanted the 900b for $700 more, so it still would have been cheaper than buying the 900b at a store by nearly $800.

Sony had my original purchases price higher. I later got a price match, that is why the 900 was offered so cheap.

Thanks for your reply. Don't see any mention of screen mirroring on the Mac laptop nor any app named that. I was hoping the Sony would see it as a device since I have sharing "on' in the Mac settings but it doesn't see it like it does with my iPhone.
Perhaps it's not possible.

Edit--On further investigation it appears it will only work with an Apple TV. That is so typical of Apple.

Just ordered the 65" from bestbuy. They dropped 200 more to 2699.99. I had already ordered the samsung 75" 6350 but for 70.00 more i wanted to try the 900a. So hopefully i love it but im at about 14" ft away.

Thanks, I guess if I really want to screen mirror I could buy the Apple TV box for $99.
In the link it appears only a Sony Xperia tablet will work?

I put it in side by side mode to check and that's not what I'm seeing. It's more like the image is spread over 2 panels stuck side by side but they are both aligned off by a few pixels making a noticeable seam in the middle. Really weird but I haven't seen it again yet.
