I basically have another week to decide if I'm going to return this thing. No way I'm going to pay Sony $35 to watch a movie on one device that I have to wait 2 days to download. Amazon app coming to...

Two theories in my mind 1) Sony and most of the MPAA are so paranoid about piracy that they ruin everything with DRM BS. I'm guessing the HDMI audio issues we're having have something to do with...

I'd love to know the answer to this. I wasn't aware they were giving UV codes and the thought that you can only watch a movie that you've paid $30 for on one tv seems ridiculous. For that price, I...

Any particular content you'd like me to try? Not too keen on dropping $35 if I may return this thing. Hopefully Sony will come through on the free Spider-Man offer in the next day or so.

Out of curiosity with the recent LG OLED price drop, is $3500 in your budget and is 55" an acceptable size? If I had known they would do that, I would have totally held off and gotten an OLED. But...
