Yep, the TV software seems to insist on "scene mode = Graphics"
for the built-in web browser -- but NOT for other internet-source
content such as Netflix or YouTube.
Just one more example of the set's extremely complicated, quirky,
and drain-bamaged software/user-interface design. Another one
that really frosts me is that there's no way to adjust "wide mode"
for net-sourced video (or maybe there is, and I just can't find it).
My workaround for this sillyness is to stream Netflix etc. through
a net-enabled Blu Ray player connected to a normal HDMI input.
It's really amazing how often I see posts complaining about game
mode or 3D local dimming, but hardly ever a rant against the TV's
many other software FUBARs. For example, hasn't anyone noticed
that the P-in-P features are useless/busted, and won't even accept
internet input as one of the dual-picture sources? Whoever wrote
that software/firmware should be banished to Baja Oklahoma.ON EDIT, after re-reading the above rant:
Sorry, I didn't mean to come off sounding so negative. IMO, the
software quirks are just ...uhh, annoying "features" that don't
detract in any significant way from the hx929's truly exceptional
picture quality. I didn't buy it for the bells & whistles -- so it's
silly to be upset when the excess baggage is less-than-perfect.
