I don't seem to have that problem. My W850A is connected via a wired ethernet cable. Are you using wireless?

Yes, I'm using wireless but I don't see how that would have any effect on my TV shutting off. It seems to me like the TV is trying to do too much and simply can't handle it or a much needed firmware patch for youtube needs to be up updated. Anyone else have this problem?

In the meantime I'll hard wire it and see if it happens again.

Wireless versus wired may not matter. The only way to be certain is to try it both ways. The more variables you can eliminate, the closer you'll get to the cause (hopefully!).

Ok, just tried the wired connection and was 20 minutes in (feeling good ) and then boom, crash, shut down. Obviously there is something wrong with the TV. Now the question is, do I let Sony try to sort it out or use my warranty through Best Buy?

I started with Reality Creation at 45. The I moved to 6, The reason for such low reality creation numbers is because it adds noise reduction and extra sharpening to the image, so if I use RC I use it at very low numbers. I now have turned off Reality Creation, as it makes the image look too smeary for my liking.

Leave Cine Motion set to Auto which is default.

It's important to leave Reality Creation set to Auto and 'Motionflow to Standard' which is default and works great, especially during pro football games.

I can't see much picture improvement as the set already looks fantastic. This noise to Off looks to have eliminated the little bit of banding I was seeing during some fast panning Ice Hockey games.
I wonder if most users that use WS's settings turn all these off or not.

Is there any way to install apps in this TV?

I am in Canada and with my laptop, I have installed Hola to access Netflix US which has much better TV and movies selection than its counterpart in Canada. I do not like to connect a laptop to the TV.
