Can someone help me out here? I am sure it has been discussed in this forum before but i could not find it. Here is the my problem :
My 65X900A is connected to Denon AVR 1612 by HDMI Cable (HDMI 1 port) with speaker settings to Audio System. Denon is getting input from Apple TV, TIVO and PS4 via HDMI cables too. I am getting sound from my home theater speakers when i am using apple tv, tivo or PS4 but not when i use the NetFlix/Youtube app on tv. I have tried almost all the setting options on both AVR and TV but not succeeded. I have even connected an optical cable between AVR and TV just to make sure. What am i missing? Could someone help me out with settings?

If you connected an optical cable double check it's enabled to the correct input on avr.

I have a Yamaha RX-A3000 and had to activate ARC on it and change the TV from Speakers to like Audiosystem, however now if the TV is on and I power on the Yamaha the TV switches the sound output automaticly...


Edit:
Double checked – The sound is working fine with Netflix/Youtube on the Yamaha at least !
I do have enabled the Bravia sync's and it finds the Yamaha and a Samsung bluray...

I am having the same issue as you. Everything that is connected to my AVR gets audio except when I try the NetFlix/Youtube app on the TV. I was about to post it in here, but you beat me to it.

So here's a guy doing this '4K shootout' who starts off with the notion that 4K is not that big of a deal. Sure looking forward to an objective review.

BTW, there are what appears to be 6 displays in that pix.

Any type of gaming I throw at it, wether it be the PS4, XB1 or PC I notice no detrimental lag. I am a fan of active 3D as it does not bother my eyes, so I think the 3D on this set is actually SUPERIOR to any other active 3D I have ever experienced. I have only done some minor tweaks to the picture as suggested by some fellow AVS'ers and have no noticeable problems with light bleed, flash lighting, clouding or banding. While my 900B did come in one of those red Sony labeled boxes, I can assure you it is new as a close family member of mine works for Sony Corp. based in San Diego, California and he assured me it would be new. In fact they hauled away my old 850A in the same box (may be the reason why). No problems to report, just soaking up as much 4K content as possible, and can't wait 'til they release the World Cup footage on the 4K media player. U.S.A, U.S.A!!!!!! Lol.
Please post specifics of what you think is better on the 900B over the 900A/850A. Is it just lag or other things? I wasn't aware there was supposed to be much difference in lag between the 2.

900A or 900B

At present, I can get a Sony XBR-55X900A for about $2,100 compared to 900B for $3,500. Given the significant price difference, should I go for 900A?

I'm surprised. 3 weeks ago his mind was already made up 4K wasn't worth it.

I might be biased as a 900a owner, but I would say get a 65x900a for $2900 from bestbuy right now. 55X900a is not full 1080 passive 3D like the 65 is if you care about 3D at all. But it really depends if you want the newer features the B offers, such as HEVC builtin and a few other things, and your personal opinion comparing the picture of both. Personally, when the difference is nearly half price for an A vs B, I would go A and you will save almost enough to also get a B next year when it is clearanced.

With the 65x950B going for $1500 less than list, I would expect 900B prices also have room to drop soon.

He went from the 850a to the 900b, not the 900a to 900b

Does the 55x900B support full 1080p 3D?

I would like to know as well. Last year the 55x900a did not, but the 65x900a did.

Hi guys,

I'm having some major issues and can't figure it out. I finally got an x-1 today, hooked it up to my 900B but it keeps giving me the message that it can't connect with the media player. I gives me code 2845. The player itself is saying that it's connected to the internet, so no problem there.

I really hope you guys know what it might be.

Here is some great info via chat I just had with a Sony Rep about whether the 900B & 950B have a 8 or 10 bit panel, some of the chat made me chuckle also...

Welcome to Sony! My name is Peter Michael G and I will be your sales product specialist today. How may I help you?

Tim: Hi
Peter Michael G: Hi, Tim! How can I help you with your purchase today?

Tim: I seriously doubt you will know this but if you pvt message one of Sony's engineers you can know and then send to my e-mail? My 2 questions below:

Tim: In regards to the 84.6” (diag) X###B Flagship 4K Ultra HD TVItem: XBR-85X###B 1) How many zones of full array local dimming are behind this models panel 2) Is it a 10bit or an 8 bit panel and throughput?

Peter Michael G: Don't worry, Tim, I can see your numbers. Thank you. Numbers are masked for added security during this chat, and are never stored.

Tim: Another question in regards to the XBR-79X###B I see it is a passive 3D panel whereas the other ###B models like the 55", 65" are active 3D so which panel will have the best picture quality and does the 79" have a 8 bit or 10 bit panel?


Tim: I also note that on the avsforums.com that many of these ###B series have clouding an issue prevelant in led/lcd panels. Is it less or more on the 79" ###B compared to the other 55" & 65" active panels?


Peter Michael G: You are right about us not having the figure for the number of zones for full array local dimming but our TV is a lot better than competitors who have 384. The XBR-85X950B is an 8-bit panel. The 3D type does not determine the quality of the picture, Tim, so we can say that since the 900B TVs are of the same model, they are all the same. It is also an 8-bit panel. I understand that forums are essential in choosing a TV, but these comments are most of the time subjective. So far, we haven't received much complaints about our 4K TVs clouding.

Tim: hehehe Your 950B is better than Vizio's Reference Series huh? How could you know that as Vizio has not yet released their Reference Series to the public?

Peter Michael G: CES, Tim.


Tim: Oh so you were able to go there personally Peter?

Peter Michael G: No, I am not able to but I was able to read blogs about them.

Tim: I heard the 10 bit panels are better because they allow a lot more of the color gamut, I wonder if in twenty fifteen if Sony will up their 8 bit to the better 10 bit?

Peter Michael G: Sony has the TRILUMINOS display which is a technology that shows life-like colors. This will make sure that you will be getting the excellent picture that the TV can offer.

Tim: Ok well thanks for your time Peter, have a nice afternoon. ttyl


Peter Michael G: Which TV is closest to your heart, Tim?

Tim: Well the 85" ###B of course but I will not afford that 25g lol

Peter Michael G:

Tim: I currently have a 70" so the next best thing could possibly be the 79" ###B

Tim: But I may wait until later in the year when the price comes down as they always do after initial release.

Peter Michael G: The XBR-79X900B is available but limited in stocks and may no longer be available later this year. Let me place the order for you today to assure you of its availability and delivery. As a valued Sony customer, we will waive the shipping fee and I will enroll you to Sony Rewards (linked to your Sony account) where you can earn points in your every purchase that you can redeem on your future order and use it as a discount, or if enough, pay for the entire order!

Tim: lol your very kind and such a good sales person, but alas I will wait.

Peter Michael G: I have good news for you, Tim! We have an in-house financing that can help you get this TV in an installment plan of up to 36 months with 0% interest! All you need to do is fill out a form and once approved, we can place the order today!


Tim: Got to go now but than you kindly.

Not sure if it matters with the 900B, but did you hook it up to HDMI 4. I also just purchased a X1 and hooked it up last night to my 900A. I initially connected it to HDMI 3 and it gave me an error saying to connect it to HDMI 4. It worked once I connected to HDMI 4 but I think I had to cycle through the inputs.

A review from someone who can't see the difference between 4K and 1080p from recommended viewing distance. No thanks.

HDMI 4 is giving me no picture at all, just some weird grey snow pattern mixed with a full purple screen. I've been tinkering a bit more and now my tv is not able to refresh the internet content anymore. I'm so confused what is going on here...

Not sure what is going on there. Maybe try a different HDMI cable and power cycle the TV.

You met the online chat equivalent of a used car salesman. Made stuff up as needed and pushed for a sale.

It must be hooked up to hdmi 2. Make sure you have hard wired internet to the player and wireless or wired to the TV. Plug everything in and turn the player and tv off, unplug the wall outlet form the tv and player for three minutes and plug it back in.

You must have internet to both, the green light should be on the player to verify.

Carlos, that's exactly why I said this is the last guy I'd go to for an objective 4K review. I'm not generally a fan of his reviews to begin with.

I think in this case he felt he needed to appease 'morons' like us who actually believe 4K brings quite a bit to the table. Excuse me while I wipe the dribble from my face.

Im not going to take anything that he says to heart but I am kind of interested in what he says about color accuracy, banding, etc general observation stuff which may prove useful outside of his like or dislike of 4K. We all know it won't live up to his wants of plasma but I don't think anyone would be surprised there as I know it won't live up to mine. At the end of the day though it is what all reviews are, an opinion nothing more nothing less. Regardless I'm still interested in 4K.

Try switching out the HDMI cord out with another 1st. Then shut off all devices to refresh and/or unplug them as sometimes the handshake between the encoder & decoders HVEC copyright protocols get crossed.

Good Luck

What we will be is not what we are, what we are is not what we were...therefore hoping in all things becomes possible.

LMAO! Agreed, Sony needs to educate their front lines with more inside info than CES or blogs etc. Although I suspect he was correct on the 8 bit panels unfortunately. In 2015 Sony will more than likely see 10 bit panel & throughput from input to output due to the competition. And that's a good thing! But we want it now, who can afford to level up every year? I am lucky to level up once in 7 to 10 years!

Thanks, I tried this method and sadly it had no effect. The problem is that I can't return the product as I got it from ebay. It comes down to the fact that I just completely wasted my money on this. Had everything working with correct VPN settings in my router and everything.

Sony has an 800 # to walk you through. Make sure the hard wire into the x1 is working and the light is green. You must use hdmi #2 , you will no the TV. Sees the 4K player because it will give you a 4k ipad icon. Double check the hardwire to the player, check,it with another devise to make sure it is working. I had the same troubles a you and finally was able to get it working.

BTW, there are what appears to be 6 displays in that pix.
The other two (far left and right) are Panasonic models (P60ZT60 and 65S64)
