It only sends Dolby 5.1 when you are watching OTA content.

Even though arc is great for ease of use. That is it's major downfall. The tech supports it, but I believe it is a licensing issue.

Mine passes it. I've got my DirecTV HR24 plugged directly in to my NX810 and the TV is hooked up via HDMI to my Pioneer SC-27. My receiver gets a full 5.1 signal when the channel is broadcasting it.

The NX810 does pass 5.1 through its digital output, the limitation would be at the sound bar or reciever end.
A given sound bar would have to handle Dolby True HD or Master DTS as an example. Also what settings it has would have to be set correctly.

Although I could not find anything specific on this in the imanual or Sony Website a chat session with Sony confrimed it. See the following;

"You are chatting with Owen - (C3L6).Sony Electronics9:44 AM Connecting...
9:44 AM Connected. A support representative will be with you shortly.
9:44 AM Support session established with Owen - (C3L6).
9:44 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Hi. Welcome to Sony Online Support. I’m Owen.
9:44 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Please allow me a moment to review your concern.
9:44 AM Customer:
hi owen
9:46 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Thank you for waiting. I'll be glad to assist you in providing the information about the Optical OUT port on the TV.
9:46 AM Customer:
thanks
9:47 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Yes, the Optical OUT port on the TV provides 5.1 channels surround sound. It depends upon the Receiver/Amplifier/Home Theater to output the sound in 5.1 or 2.1.
9:48 AM Customer:
what does that mean..the TV pass's 5.1, it depends on if the reciever or sound bar reproduces 5.1?
9:49 AM Owen - (C3L6):
The TV will always pass 5.1 channel digital sound to the connected Audio System. You can change the settings in the Audio System to 2.1 or 5.1 according to your requirement by changing the sound fields.
9:50 AM Customer:
ok, that pretty much answers my question, thanks
9:50 AM Owen - (C3L6):
You're Welcome.
9:51 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Based on our conversation, this is the help you were looking for. If you need any additional information feel free to stop by our chat room again using the same email address.
9:51 AM Owen - (C3L6):
Have a great day ahead."

With my system I am using a Yamaha RX-V667, I have all components going into the reciever via HDMI and ONE HDMI cable going out from the reciever to the Sony NX810 via HDMI/ARC 1. Using HDMI control, every thing turns on together and the internal speakers are set to external audio system, all audio goes through my reciever. There is no guess work with my reciever as its on screen menu tells you exactly what the incoming signal is down to its bit rate and encoding type.
Back in the day (a year ago) i had an older Westinghouse 1st gen 1080p HDTV and even its audio out supplied 5.1 if the source was 5.1.

I would suggest you look at the settings and or specifications of your system and or consider upgrading it.

For future reference going to the Sony NX support site you can enter support chat or on your TV's remote press Menu/Settings/Product Support/Contact Sony

Good Luck

Yeah, I had no choice my router went out. It made no difference. When I swapped my 5 year old netgear wdr-3300 with a linksys/cicso e3000 high performance n routr that did make a big difference. If your router is 3 years old or more you might consider a newer model. A lot of them have USB ports so you can hang a drive off it and access it over your network, They don't make wireless hard drives yet so that USB is a nice thing.

I have Verizon FiOS and a new Actiontech M1424-WR Rev.F router, it has a usb port in the back.
I also happen to have an IOGEAR Wireless-N USB adapter.

If i plug that in to the Actiontech router will my stuff (components..TV, BRP Laptop) hook up via N? Will that be faster then what its doing now?
I dont know alot about this part of it so any help and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Wireless hard drive ---> http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD...me-Capsule-2TB

"Wireless drive sharing.

Time Capsule also works great as a wireless hard drive, whether you have a Mac or a PC. It sets up in a snap, giving you a networked hard drive you can use for storing and sharing all kinds of files. If you're a MobileMe member using a Mac with OS X Leopard or later, or an iCloud member with Mac OS X Lion, you can even access the files on the drive over the Internet."

Greetings! & Salutations to my friends in CD. Did I miss anything?
I don't see much going on. It is 2 years. Is 3d dead? I haven't seen a 3d TV broadcast
in over a year and the last movie I watched was Tron. No more "pushing 3d" No..wait I did watch some of the swimsuit issue. TV still performs great.
Definately an expensive experience for me that I shan't fall victim to again with the
3D hype. I fell for it. NO mas bleeding edge for me although the 60" picture quality is outstanding.
Its been 2 great years almost so time for a new one wink.gif..Nah...I got 8 years to go before the moths come out of the wallet again.
Regs,
Steve
post #6547 of 6610
Steve - ATT U-verse and DirectTv have 3D TV coverage of the Olympics on a daily basis. I haven't the slightest idea how good or bad it looks since my TV is not 3D compatible.
post #6548 of 6610
Thanks. I didn't hear about that. Last week I saw that 3-D TV was in the top 10 2012 biggest flops. It was a credible source but I forget who.
I'm mad at myself for falling for the hype. I had good info( so I thought)that it would be mandated to produce 3-d films for
everything. For me to get Directv would be a major hassel and a really don't want a satellite bolted to my roof however if it were that good I'd do it but the few people I knew tha tried went back to cable.
I looked into it when they were pushing their commitment to 3-d..
Devoid of 3-d I chose the 60 anyway. Picture quality looked much beter to ME than panasonic, samsung, etc.When they demo the 3-d
they use the best made for that TV and so when watching other films you expect the same quslity and for the most part its not there.
FWIW the set stil commands a decent price if you want to buy one so it must be good. I hear avatar is like 25.00 now I'm
going to try that.


Happy Labor Day, Yom Kippor, Rosh hashana, Veterans day, Thanksgiving, x-mas and New years to all!. Happy Birthday to anyone having one too!
Happy Anniversary, graduations, and good times! - Steve

Sorry if I missed any CD holidays but if its a bank holiday then enjoy it.
post #6549 of 6610
I have to say I am also very disappointed in the lack of 3-D availability. I am really tired of the same loop of shows on DTV. The Olympics was really good. Want more available!!! anyone listening...Sony!!
post #6550 of 6610
Hi All,

I'm having a weird problem with this set.

When viewing dark scenes, the colors kinda jump from one level of darkness to another. I dunno how to describe it, but it's really distracting. I've tried to reset all the picture settings and try several different scene modes, but nothing I've done so far has fixed it.

I know I haven't given much info here to solve the problem, but...

Any suggestions?

- Thanx
- Jon
post #6551 of 6610
NEVER MIND! Problem solved.

Wow, LED Dynamic Control set to Low (or Standard) casuses this!

- Jon
post #6552 of 6610
YEPPIE!

That's the problem with edge-lit LED since the segments are large and cover a large portion of the screen. So you will
see certain areas of the screen with brighter luminance than others. It can become distracting.

That is why back-lit is so much better.
post #6553 of 6610
I was just browsing the Sony Site and was suprised to see they do not have any
60" TV's for sale. They have a model commng out for preorder but Where's the 60- 65 inchers??
Anyone know whats up?
post #6554 of 6610
Hey quick question guys, does our TV have a audio output jack for an audio cabel? Or is there any adapter to go from RGB? to the audio cable?

Reason i ask is because i just picked up the new sony Elite Pulse headset and the manual says we can use it to get sound from the TV with the wireless adapter+ audio cable combo.

Ok this question goes out to the fellow NX810 owners....

So after owning my Sony NX810 55" display for sometime, and now a new Oppo BDP-103 player , I can't help but think that I must have a setting off when watching Blu-Rays. What I am experiencing is that the video will go out momentarily and give a "No signal. Check the external input or select another input using the INPUT button." when flipping thru some of the discs previews and menus screens. This occurred with my new Oppo and my older Sony player. Is this normal and part of the video syncing? The video never goes out during movie playback. Only when toggling thru all the extra movie junk on a disc. A good example is on Avengers Blu-Ray when the disc is cued up and on the intro screen and I hit "PLAY". I have the same issue with both the Sony player and the new Oppo and I've tried the players thru a AVR receiver and directly into the TV using only HDMI 1. In fact HDMI 1 is the only cable besides the power cord coming from my TV. I want to completely disable the other inputs. Thanks in advance for your help.
post #6557 of 6610
Tony, I have a 60NX810 that doesn't exhibit that issue. I've used a PS3 and a Panasonic DMP-BDT220. They go through a Denon AVR to the TV. Maybe it's a bad cable or HDMI connection on your TV?
post #6558 of 6610
Same here, PS3 thru denon reciever to the 60nx810. No problems at all. Make sure firmware is up to date on tv and especially the player. Try another hdmi cable if updating the firmware didnt work.
post #6559 of 6610
I am happy to announce that I am able to watch 3d tv on my 5 thousand dollar 60nx810 24/7 on ESPN-3D after 2 years
of no content. Yipee-ki-yay-mofo
post #6560 of 6610
I'm thinking of selling my 60NX810 with 3D emitter and 4 pairs of 3D glasses. Any ideas what it might be worth?
post #6561 of 6610
Is it possible to control this television, even just power on/off over wifi from my laptop?
post #6562 of 6610
Hey everyone! Well, quick question. I have a 55NX810. A week ago early in the morning, when I went to turn on the TV, no image would show. About half a minute later the TV turned off and I got 6 blinking lights. I turned on the TV again and it started just fine, and worked ok turning on and off for the rest of the day. However, next day after that in the morning, I got the same problem, yet this time the TV would no longer work after restarting (it repeats the 6 blinking lights issue). Ive already contacted my warranty provider (I bought it at Sony Store with an extended service warranty - its not provided by Sony, but by Sony Authorized repair centers). One thing I do notice prior to the TV switching off (and then getting the blinking lights) is that there actually IS an image on the screen, however, one can only see it while looking closely from the side, and its really dark.

What could the 6 blinking lights indicate as a source of the problem? I read a couple of thread pages ago that someone had problems getting the parts required for fixing the TV (I think the exact words were "indefinitive backorder"). What are the chances that there are still repair parts being manufactured for this set? I love this TV, and I would hate to have to switch to something below its quality (if it came down to parts not being available).

Thanks for everyone's time.

Manu
post #6563 of 6610
6 blinks=backlight error. This agrees with your description, the picture is there but you can't see it because the backlight isn't working.
post #6564 of 6610
Update:

So I changed the backlight inverter board today, and the following is happening: Previously, I could barely see an image on the panel when turning it on, and after 30 seconds or so it would turn off and flash the LED light 6 times. Upon changing the board and starting it up, I could see the image clearly ! However, after 30 seconds the TV dims very slightly, and after 1 or 2 seconds the TV shuts off and I get the 6 lights again. Any thoughts? Maybe problems getting power to the inverter board? Im stumped, as Im getting a good solid image for 30 seconds or so and then it all goes back to the same problem.

post #6566 of 6610
Wow, thanks a lot! This really helps! Any chance you have the manual for the NX810? This one seems to be specific to be XBR models, and the instructions require updating the model / location after replacing the board. Location seems fine, but I dont have the value for model since it would be different from the XBR models.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!
post #6567 of 6610
Sorry I didn't notice that was for the 900 series (they use the same chassis).

Try this link (not verified myself yet): http://elektrotanya.com/sony_chassis_az1-h_kdl-46nx810_55nx810_55nx811_60nx810.pdf/download.html

Thanks! I already downloaded the doc from the first link and Ill be trying the settings as indicated in the instructions as soon as I get home from work. My main concern right now is having to basically scramble to the settings and save them prior to the TV turning off by itself...
post #6569 of 6610
Keep us posted on your progress smile.gif
post #6570 of 6610
Well, as for progress to date...

I managed to perform all of the service mode instructions as instructed in the service manual, but no change. After 30 or so seconds, the set will still lightly dim, and a couple of seconds later shut down and give me 6 blinking lights. What's a bit strange is that the problem is now considerably different from where I started prior to changing the inverter board - initially I got no image for 30 seconds (only being able to notice a slight image in the background of the panel when looking at it closely from the side, and mostly white items in whatever was being run in the TV) and then the TV would turn off after 30 seconds. Now, after changing the inverter board, I get a perfect image for 30 seconds, then it dims, then it turns off.

Anyone else with possible ideas on what could be causing this? Any ideas on where else I could post this? Im thinking maybe the inverter board I received is somewhat damaged (although maybe not as damaged as the one I initially replaced). Ill be contacting the supplier to ask for a replacement. But Im already trying to think on what else could possibly be happening.
