Whatever makes you happy. More observations using Amazon and the movie trailer for "Fury". All played DD 5.1. S6200 showed dim HD. Sony TV showed no HD. TiVo showed bright HD and AVR indicated...

If you call Sony they will tell you to do the Factory Reset three times sequentially, so your idea has merit. What model is the keyboard? Why do you hide your SSID? I use a 6200.

You might try my Amazon test (it's free). My AVR is set to pass the video but will still display the resolution and audio. When I play the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, the LFE indicator...

UI is still slow compared to my EX700.

eBay still some old Hauppauge tuner sticks. I don't know about their OS drivers though. WinTV-HVR-950Q does analog and QAM. I think it might do ATSC, but it's been a while.

Keep in mind that the "rules" will override the guide which affects the "new" or OAD a lot. The Brain Games worked for me. I do have my defaults set to not include rent or buy, new only, and HD if...

Your experience is probably the norm. I'm just not having a consistent signal with my router on a different floor at 2.4GHz. My test is to play an Amazon trailer (free) and if I can make the 2+...

I agree. I'm sure it does a great job streaming content. It would have to plug into my TV though. My TV has it's speakers disabled and the S6200 plugs into my AVR. The TV has about 100 apps anyhow,...

Well, don't get me started. I have a few gripes. Like the "new" indicator. Any program shown as new is new for subsequent recordings on any day. This is a cable issue. There is a midnight issue,...

Should you decide to get one I can give you some tips. Newegg has the best price on refurbs. You do need a PC to configure the security and other options. I wish the S6200 would accept a USB adapter....

The TiVo guide is about 95% accurate and you have to understand it has "rules" that can cause issues. The Zap2It guide is 99% accurate, or has been in the past. Things may change with the TMS...

I posted this several times on TCF, but here's a recent copy. I hope it helps.

Well.... I found the WiFi on these units to be not as good as the earlier models. If you're wired there should be no difference. I use a CAT5 to 802.11ac adapter since my router is on a different...

Some people like the faster speed. If all you do is watch BD, it's not that important. Play around with various content providers, then it may be worth the price.

It will probably be one of those "improves internet" updates. New version is PKG2.291AAA for those interested. My W600B is set for automatic updates but didn't download until I started it.

Well, it's not perfect, but you can use WMP to rip music to a Windows PC, then run the Desktop server and access those tracks. I believe only MP3 will work. I have it working, and I can access the...

I saw no difference in BD quality between my S570 and S6200. But I'm not really a professional. I only bought the S6200 because the price was good and the S570 was getting loud. Side affect is better...

I use the RX-V867. I find it has several thousand Internet Radio stations, which I'm sure 100's are oldies. One comes to mind is the old Hy Lit Philly channel. I don't know if your model has it....
