Netflix is BSing you about the wireless module on the TV - that is fine. Likely just a bad Netflix client that they don't want to bug-fix.

None of the built-in video streaming apps on the XBR900A...

Don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but on my 43X800D I periodically have issues where the TV is extremely slow to respond. I.e. pressing buttons on the remote trying to navigate the...

Thanks for the tip! I had discovered KODI, and now am testing out SPMC. (Haven't discovered significant differences so far between the two.)

Both work great to watch video files I have (home...

I have run into this issue before with earlier Sony AVR's. My bet is that the issue is that your Nvidia card is sending out a PCM 7.1 signal. The receiver would have no way of knowing that your...

This is interesting to know - to be clear are you saying that the TV will accept a 4K/60p signal with 12-bit color info?

That is actually a specific question that I had, as I noticed last night...

No idea why, and you have to dig into the fine print in the manual to determine this.

Actually, all four HDMI support HDCP 2.2. And, all four HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0.

BUT, since the HDMI 2.0...

I think that your PS3 is actually outputting correctly. 4/3/.1 is the same as 7.1, so you are getting all of the channels.

When you set playback to 1.5x, this is actually a PS3 internal feature -...

Did your 60GB refurbs work well like new? I.e. low fan speed, etc.
