Well, that may depend on who continues to do the firmware development & support for these TVs. There are some issues with my 70" model that appear to be firmware related. I also expect to be...

Anyone here familiar with Hisense, the Chinese company that is acquiring Sharp America? I've not heard of them before so just wondering what sort of support (thinking firmware upgrades, mostly) us...

Has anyone noticed that the discrete power on IR code that worked on the previous Sharp TVs doesn't work with the LC-70UH30? I use a Pronto remote to control my system and replaced the older 70"...

Prior to the firmware update and before I did the factory reset on my units, most (if not all) of my 6500 tracks were categorized. The factory reset cleared that (as expected) but none of the tracks...

I have a LC-70UH30U that I'm trying to find a discrete power on IR code for. The one that I was using with my previous 70" Sharp turns the TV off rather than on. Indeed, both the power on and power...

Guess I'll do a database update on mine and see if the SenseMe channels are back. Are all of your tracks now categorized?

Hmm, I don't see any change with my players. Was there a firmware update on your player or did it just start working without that?

The problem that I'm seeing (and that annoys me) is that the SenseMe feature no longer works for me. I did a factory reset and re-transferred all of my tracks to both of my HAP-Z1ESs and both of them...

From the reviews that I've read the current Sharp TVs come from the factory pretty closely calibrated. Perhaps that is the difference. Most manufactures ship them setup to be too bright to have them...

I don't find that mine is dim. What was the brightness and contrast set to. Actually, unless the TVs are calibrated all you can really say is that one was setup to be brighter than the other. A...

I'm not sure, and I'm not able to test it right now either, but I think that the DD Surround decoder adds the rear surrounds to a 5.1 channel mix, not the presence channels. Turns a 5.1 surround mode...

Yes, I find that the movie DSP settings (at least the ones I use, SciFi being one of them) will enable all of the speaker channels that you have hooked up. For example, my RX-A3030 and CX-A5000...

Since I know of no current source material that is in a 9.2 format (outside of Dolby Atmos or DTX:X), I believe that you are going to have to select a DSP mode on the 2040 that uses the presence...

I'd consider the possibility that you are experiencing problems with your WiFi connection. Have you tried a wired connection (at least as a test) to see if the problem goes away with that?

It doesn't work for me with either of my players as well. It appears that the SenseMe function is completely broken with this latest firmware update. :(

If you use them. Otherwise, added cost for a choice that doesn't get used seems unnecessary.

Yep, the RX-Z9 I had years ago would run the multichannel inputs through A/D converters if you selected any of the DSP modes. The RX-Z11 I replaced it with didn't do this, no DSP effects could be...

I suspect that it's due to the assumption that people buying new receivers aren't so likely to want or need the multichannel inputs. Of course, YMMV on whether that is so or not.

I'm not seeing that.

I have to say, though, that the Sony transfer program is my least favorite part of these players. The interface is klunky/cludgy, it's slow, and, worst of all, unreliable. It...
