Sony wants to use their 4k server and 4k streamers to help get the word out that 4k material (movies) are here and now it's time for the masses to buy 4k displays. So Sony now botches the compatibility of these 4k delivery sytems on their largest consumer 4k user base, the 1000es. Sounds like they have accomplished the polar opposite. They have showed the world that without a 4k delivery system these displays are not ready for prime time. A bit of a PR nightmare. If I were Sony I would move swiftly on resolving this issue or it could stifle sales of their new 4k led displays.
Sony, should do a firmware upgrade via internet to the streamer or an in-home activation on the streamer to make it 1000es compatible. If new hdcp coding make that impossible, then Sony should upgrade the 1000es hdmi board and firmware (if necessary) via home visits. No one really wants to send in their 1000s for upgrading and risk shipping damage with a two-way trip to Texas and the accompanying inconvenience of it. I believe Sony implemented an in home service program back when the Qualia projector was released, correct?
Sony is too good a company to leave us all out in the cold, besides it's the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish. We early adopers are what drive the future of this format, so come on Sony we are waiting. Edited by G-Rex - 7/3/13 at 1:08am
