You've done well there. The unit with the separate HDMI 4 probably did NOT have the HDCP 2.2 board upgrade, whereas the build with HDMI 1,3,4 next to each other definitely does have the upgrade. What this means is that you can use the Sony 4K media players and any future equipment that requires 2.2 compatibility (which will most likely include 4K Blu-ray).

The one I returned had HDMI 4 port separate from the other HDMI's which were numbered 1 and 2 together right next to one another then another one # 3 on the side. When i plugged ps4 in the separate HDMI 4 port it recognized it as a '4K Server'. The new one doesn't have a separate "HDMI 4" instead it has 3 ports right next to one another i believe are numbered 1,3,4 then one more on the side #2 . Does any one know what i'm talking about? Does this mean anything? I've heard that with this model only HDMI 4 can support the new upcoming sony hdmi 2.0 or 2.2 and in my minds eye it made sense because it was the only HDMI port that looked different from the other ones, something i don't see with the new tv. All the hdmi ports look the same with this tv. I hope mine isn't made in China
The newer sets have HDMI 1,3 & 4 together as you describe. Having the HDMI 4 seperate requires a board swap by Sony to get HDCP 2.2 needed for the 4K media streamers (FMP-X1 & FMP-X10). You can see the date and location of manufacture on the white label on rear right of the TV.

even using jerry's settings and numerous others I cant get my picture up to par with bestbuy's even their samsung 4k looks better.Yesterday they had on "real steel" blue-ray on one of their 4ktv's, and the picture looked so real, its almost like live, like looking out the window, I guess some refer to this as the soap opera look? I dont know what the look is but it looks amazing. How can I get that look on my sony 65x900a? Help
Sounds like you are someone who actually prefers SOE. Turn on all your motion enhancement to eliminate all motion blur. This will give it the live video effect instead of looking like a movie.

Posted this from another site, according to this article we should be able to view transformers 4 in 4k-3d in full resolution to each eye, so transformers 4 should be the first 4k-3d movie that can be watch in true 4k in 3d on a passive glasses without resolution loss?

The IMAX format is a pretty great way to experience a film.  Though most “IMAX” experiences these days weren’t actually filmed natively in the format and are instead just blown up versions of standard format, some filmmakers (ie. Christopher Nolan) have made it a point to push genuine IMAX to its limits.  It’s a cumbersome way to shoot a movie,  however, as the large, bulky cameras limit the director’s camera movements, and even in dramatic scenes the camera is so loud that any dialogue onscreen has to be redubbed in ADR.  However, IMAX has just unveiled a new, smaller, 65mm 4K digital 3D camera that Michael Bay used in Transformers: Age of Extinction, and the company has released a short video explaining how this new digital IMAX camera—the first of its kind—operates.  I’m very curious to see if it can stack up to the film IMAX experience.Hit the jump to watch the digital IMAX 3D camera video, and get a look at the camera in action when Transformers: Age of Extinction opens in theaters on June 27th.Here’s a few quick facts about the camera via IMAX:IMAX has developed the first fully integrated dual 65mm 4K digital large-format 3D camera.The IMAX 3D Digital Camera delivers stunning image quality and is smaller, lighter and easier to use than other 3D digital camera systems on the market.The IMAX 3D Digital Camera is a true 4K stereo camera.

Active 3d sets could do 4k 3d but passive cuts the resolution in half so the x900a could never do full 4k 3d.

Your answer is a bit confusing Geoff. Are you suggesting that for those of us that own "A" model sets with the HDMI#2/MHL Port on the vertical side of the tv (below the USB port) are in need of a board upgrade?

I apologize if this topic has been discussed in length already. Just trying to get to the bottom of this in case I/we need to reach out to Sony and have them upgrade to the new standard...
