Asking for trouble, IMO. Not all of us are experts like Geoff.

I say just leave it off...

Looking at that picture with the back panel off makes me wonder how this was ever a $7000 tv and what is so heavy to push this over 100 lbs.

Just ordered my 65X900A (Arrives in 4-5 days), it feels weird going from my Pio 6020 to an LED....but I know it will be worth it. I got a super steal of a deal on it new in box I'm really excited to get it setup and enjoy it. Reviews and other ppl have been pretty pumped up about it. I have a feeling I will be enjoying 3D content finally!

Had a question on the reality Creation control. When does Mastered in 4K become active to be usable? What does it do? Does it make a difference? I thought I saw it active once playing a disc now I cannot get it to work.


If I had to guess, it activates when viewing movies MASTERED IN 4K by SONY, correct? When I view the new Amazing Spiderman 2 which is mastered in 4 K it still is not active. Any ideas about this?

The Mastered in 4K option is selectable when showing a 1080p/24 signal. Most people recommend always leaving it on.

Actually, I just tested it, and Mi4K seems to be available as long as the resolution is 1080, including 1080i and 1080p/60. In previous discussions, I believe Geoff D mentioned that On is the best setting.

I currently have a Sharp Aquos LC-60E88UN, so my question would be, would I see a significantly noticeable difference in PQ with the Sony? Obviously, 4K content is still in it's very early stages, so I would be watching Comcast HD most of the time, and gaming a lot on my PS4.
How are you coming up with 1150? Is it damaged? I too work at BBUY and it is 1684 at emp pricing, open box typically doesn't apply to emp pricing. But great that you can get it for that price

Are you viewing the 3D disc or the 2D disc ? The back of the box on the movie says mastered in 4K (2D only). I watched the 2D disc last night and it appeared for me and was set to on. Have not watched the 3D disc yet but I don't expect it to be an option.

Edit: just validated the 3D disc has the mastered in 4K option off and greyed out.

The B is laid out a bit differently, there are more long metal strips along the top (which are attached to the actual frame of the panel) and some screws are facing up as well as out. I loosened all of those along the top which I could see.

And yes, as Lee said, there's lots of screws. That pic looked familiar!

It's not essential IMO. Folks may remember me saying that it's a single-pixel edge/contrast enhancer, one up and one over, mostly for luma than the chroma. It certainly makes the single-pixel test patterns stand out more, but it's overcooking them because they should look grey from a distance (viewed on a 1080p TV for reference), whereas they're a blown-out white with Mi4K on. Looking at it close-up also adds a very, very small amount of aliasing on fine diagonal edges because of the one-up/one-over nature of the Mi4K's single-pixel enhancement, I suppose it's there to mimic the finer pixel resolution of true 4K content.

Note that if you set Reality Creation off then the single-pixel checkerboards are completely greyed out. With RC on it DOES pass single-pixel detail, albeit at a slightly filtered frequency. (Get up close and you'll see it.) But with Mi4K on top, it exaggerates single-pixel beyond what it should actually be, and I've taken to leaving it off. (Though bear in mind that the B series doesn't even need RC on to get that single-pixel passthrough, so I also leave RC off now.) I may still enable RC/Mi4K for Sony's own Mi4K software, but I still can't figure out how they would've encoded their discs to take advantage of such processing. Special metadata my ass.
