I joined this thread last night with the intent of posting the exact same question. I guess they don't have the server set up right for it yet.

Glad it isn't just me!

Of course not, and we've never heard of an App update causing it to start doing it either. But I think that is what just happened. HDR playback through the Amazon app is obscure enough at this...

Just a theory at this point based on my experience with 4 HDR titles on Amazon. All 4 of them played fine with black bars before the latest Amazon app update. Now 1 plays fine and 3 have gray bars....

Well, to be fair, the picture quality is exactly the same. The app generated black bars are what we are talking about. A firmware update for a Blu-ray player could do exactly the same thing.

It appears that the latest Amazon app on Sony TV's may have a bug with HDR movies that are encoded widescreen (wider than 16:9) where the App creates the black bars around the movie. The bars are...

The TV stand is only 2-3 feet wide so no issue with how wide the table is that it is sitting on. Mine sticks out about 3 inches on each side too.

Several people (including myself) counted 80 zones on the 940d and everyone was saying that is less than the 940c. Where did you see something that indicated they are identical?

Your list implies you need a DV television to watch those titles in HDR. I can watch them in HDR on my Sony which does not have DV. Maybe make it clear that they ALSO have DV and not exclusive. ...

I have one stuck green pixel, but I can't see it from my viewing position. If you have a cluster that is obviously visible, I'm pretty sure you'll need to get it replaced.
