Yeah, also quite a bit of lag here (input, guide, and menu). I also just assumed it was computer start up time. It funny though, whenever I use my older LCD sony in my room, and I can access these things instantaneously, I'm all like "HOW LUXURIOUS".

I've had about 3 random reboots in a month, but not enough to drive me crazy, and usually within the first 10 minutes or so of having the tv on (ie, never in the middle of a movie, in an intense moment).

Input lag, does this mean with video games? Maybe I should stick to the Samsung if that's the case. Does it have gaming mode?
post #663 of 1878
No, using the "input" button. Ie. turning on the tv, and time it takes to change the input. Yes, there is a gaming mode.

Greetings everyone,

I am joining your "family thread" here as I am the proud owner of a new KDL-46HX750. Upgraded from a 32" Sony Trinitron I purchased back in...'94/'96 for ($1400!! lol) Yep, I waited long enough to make the switch to the common era. Hey...the Trinitron still has the same "beautiful" picture of yesteryear. OMG, want to talk about a heavy set? Twin tuners in that thing for PiP. 154 lbs!

All I can say is that we are 100% satisfied with this set. Have had the set for 2.5 weeks now. I don't have HD with DirecTV yet, but the HD content/quality from Netflix and Blu-Ray is outstanding.

Haven't tried the 3D yet, glasses coming Friday, hopefully didn't waste money on the Sony TDGBR250/B glasses ($49) compared to some of the cheaper pairs out there. I may have fallen victim to the "must have these glasses with the Sony Bravia" thing. That was before I found this site.

I am sure I'll have questions regarding tweaking the settings for 3D/Blu-Ray/DVD and seeing what has proven the best with you guys. Also have Xbox 360s if there are any specific settings you guys use with that.

Thanks in advance

Sound question?

I'm waiting for my wall mount to arrive to I can put my new set in it's final resting location. In the meantime I set it up in my sunroom to check out PQ and get familiar with it. It has a single HDMI (4) in from my Cable CIsco 8600 DVR. I have sound from a really old pioneer simulated surround plugged into composite audio, I set speakers off , changed headphones to audio system but get no sound. I can plug in head phones and receive sound. My old Olevia was setup this way and worked fine? Do I have something connected incorrectly? Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the HX750 family! smile.gif

Welcome!

Do you see some kind of bleeding/flashlighting in the corners? Over dark bars or in dark scenes, and always in a full dark room.

I've notice that if its is flat mounted the top corners bleeding is less than if it is 8º mounted

You are using the Audio next to the composite video in connections on the back of the TV? The Audio out is off to the "side" and is the 3.5 mm connection audio out.

I see so I need a composite audio to headphone Jack cable?

Yup, there is no composite audio out.
post #671 of 1878
And I can tell you that it's working that way. That's how I get sound from the TV to my 20 year old Sony stereo receiver.
post #672 of 1878
Thanks a bunch guys.

YES. It is smile.gif

I'm in the same boat, but i'm averaging a reboot per week. This is my second set, and its getting to the point where it looks like I'll be requesting a 3rd. The reboots for me at least seem to be occurring when I initiate something, like pressing 'Home' or 'Input' or 'Volume up' on the remote, and not during idle viewing.

I game on PS3 and Wii U almost daily on this thing in Game Mode - Standard and I've experienced zero input lag.

_Don't_ do it. Look at what sets I got when I asked for repair. It took three panels until I was remotely satisfied, with one of them making things even worse! One reboot a week doesn't sound like a serious problem. I wouldn't risk getting a set with serious banding/clouding/flashlighting issues.

Even if they only change the electronics, I wouldn't risk it. After opening and closing my tv's cover but _WITHOUT_ changing the panel (the first repair where they realized that the replacement panel was broken) I suddenly had a large cloud in the corner.

Are you serious? Of course a reboot every week is a serious problem! That's partly why I'm upgrading my Vizio E420VL. What usually makes it do that, and more importantly, how long does the reboot usually take? I wish I could just go for a TV that always works, but it seems like there's no such thing these days. I think just about every TV manufactured nowadays is always going to have at least one issue, or another. I've heard of the Samsung UN46ES6500 doing something similar, but even if not that, it will have a different problem. So, I guess you just have to decide which problems are more severe. I know that the Samsung has more severe clouding issues, which the Sony does not.

I don't consider a fault which will disturb me for ONE minute every 20 or so viewing hours "serious".

It's rebooting. Once a week. Okay. So, let's say you're watching three hours every day. And there's ONE reboot every seven days. Therefore you'll have a problem which only impacts during less than 0.1% of your viewing time. Is this serious? Of course NOT!

But then you want to change the whole set and risk contracting clouding or banding which will annoy you every MINUTE, virtually ALL your viewing time. Nope, definitely not worth it.

Btw., I didn't had any reboots. Not a single one. Never.

You make some very good points clancy. I have had zero re-boots with my tv as well as well as no clouding or light bleed either. I feel very fortunate to have the excellent tv I have. Very proud of it.
post #680 of 1878
Okay, I will now admit it. It may not be a big problem to some people, but to me, it is a big problem. I am picky. I am VERY picky. Sometimes I can be a little too picky at times. I do know that there are people who have not had any issues with their set, like the person who just posted above. I also read reviews all over the place from people who are very happy with their set, and I've read a lot more positive reviews about this one than the Samsung UN46ES6500 that I've been considering, which is good to know.
post #681 of 1878
I hear you guys, good arguments all around. I just don't know about this set. I think Steve received the only good HX750 ever manufactured LMAO but seriously I may hold off until next years sets are available and see what they offer me then (next years equivalent, cash towards another one, etc) I mean the good thing is my warranty goes through Sept. 2014.

Have you thought about the HX850?

Well, it is a higher-end model, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will have fewer issues. In fact I think if anything, it will have MORE issues. Besides I think it's more expensive. I'm deciding between the HX750 and the Samsung ES6500 because they go for the same price, and are usually compared side by side.

It got CNET's top rated LCD of the year and CNET is very critical of LCD
post #685 of 1878
That's good to know, but its a little out of my price range. Though I noticed that both the HX750 and the ES6500 have 3-star ratings, so I guess it's average.

Though another thing is, just about everyone here on this forum is going to have one issue or another with their set, or any piece of equipment. That's the only reason why they're posting here. No need to post here if they have equipment that works all the time.

You are correct. More people go searching and posting on forums that are having issues. People that are enjoying their sets rarely take the trouble to post. I think the HX750 will be a fine choice. Sony does not have the tacky looks and the cool smart hub that samsung has but the picture is what you really care about. The only Samsung I would touch is es7100 or above. I have the D6000 of last year and its bad enough to write samsung off for awhile. I plan on getting the HX850 next month after CES 2013. Ive also thought about waiting to see if Apple comes out with a TV next year but I dont want to miss a good chance at a great sony tv.

gator your a trip dude and funny as hell and I like that about you. I got the only HX750 thats good? lol.......no buddy there are others that have got a flawless set as well its just the luck of the draw as they say. But there is something about my tv that I love more then anything and I found it out when I first got it but havent said anything. Even after I confirmed it with Sony I never have said anything about it and I wont now because all that will happen is I will get called a liar or something else so my wife told me to keep my mouth shut and I will.
