So far so good, but then again it wasn't like it was _always_ bad when I'd turn it on, although it does seem to happen mainly after the set had been off for a while. Then again, I've only had it since Saturday afternoon, so I haven't had all that much time with it yet.
Whatever it is, I'll be fixing it through Sony though, as Circuit City dosen't seem interested in helping me out after I returned their overpriced `5-year' service agreement...and of course I'm now past their `30 day' return window (ordered (and paid for!) the set on the 13th of July, but it took until the 27th before they had it in...).
Actually, my recent experience with Circuit City almost was annoying enough to just return the TV and HTIB there and wait out the month and a half until the 36xs955 comes out, but my Fiance would kill me and we're back to the original reason I got the XBR960...it's available now. =) (and the Olympics are on...even with that uber-annoying Sony commercial). I really hope that the 36XS955 dosen't have the same problems as the XBR960, but I'd be inclined to think that it would have _more_ problems, not less. The guts of the TV are probably essentially identical to the XBR960 (ie. new for this year), but the tube is also new. At least I haven't seen a 4:3 super fine pitch tube on Sony Japanese site, so I'm assuming that it's a new tube.
Actually, that brings up another question. Just what is the Japanese model equivalent of the XBR960? Is it the KD-36HR500? I really wish that they sold the KD-36HD900 here. It looks like the old 34" XBR800/HS510, but with a Super Fine Pitch tube.
