This Rocketfish is a 2 Way HDMI Splitter, but

1) is it going to even pass this heavy security encoded signal
2) is the video quality going to remain thru the split

I don't think the Rocketfish people even thought of 4K processing when this was designed. I could buy it and try it.

Something like this one:

It would not work. Out of curiosity, what are you trying to accomplish? I can only assume you don't have 2 Sony 4K sets, do you?

I have a problem with the connection of the 4k server and the panel. I am thinking the TV is at fault. So, I connected the tv via a wired connection to the same switch as the 4k server. Both have the networks setup correctly. If I turn on the tv first then the 4k server, a connection can not be made and the only thing that shows on the screen is that 4k screen with the lines going across. Now, if I turn on the 4k server first, the tv turns on and a connection is made. Problem is that every 20-30 seconds, the TV displays this 'The network appears to be down. Is the network setup correctly?'... I press return and and it goes back to the 4k server /movie but then the message pops up again... if I play a movie.. this message pops up on top of the movie but the movie continues to play (from the 4k server) so I am guessing the TV is losing the network signal. I looked at the ethernet switch, the light stays on continuously for the TV connection so I know the switch is not the problem.

Any help would be appreciated? Anyone have any idea?

I need the second HDMI for rear channel surround. I'm using the speakers in the set for front. I only have a 2 speaker stereo rig which is used for surround from cable, bluray and was expecting the X1 to act the same. The receiver gets a clean optical signal from both the cable box and the bluray and I switch the L/R to become rear surround.

Since the X1 does not provide a fiber optic output, and the second HDMI cuts off the first, I ran a fiber from the TV output to the receiver but the result is I am hearing low muffled dialogue along with the music and effects tracks. (If I switch the X1 to send HDMI audio to the receiver, the signal is perfect for surround, but not from the fiber from the TV.)

So I wanted to split the HDMI out of the X1, sending one side to the HDMI(4) of the TV and the other side to the receiver for audio.

Monoprice has this one (and others) that is 3D and 4K supported:

I use it without any issues.

My swapped out set came yesterday. I watched the two guys unload it and was shocked to see them take out a box that showed another TV. As they got closer I could see that the box also had evidence of having been around the block. When they got it inside I asked them was this a new TV and they said yes. Then they proceeded to lift off that box to reveal the 65" 4k set inside of it. It was double boxed. I was relieved and glad to see the extra caution taken. They even added extra foam strip padding on the outside bottom, top and sides of the 4k set box. The TV was set up and after checking "I got me a good one." No light bleed and clouding not worth mentioning. The screen was also darker than the first set.

The Rocketfish one was a big dud. Shut off the X1 as soon as you selected it as input.

I don't think that has anything to do with the splitter. I don't think the X1 is going to allow you to split its' signal, regardless of which splitter you use.

Hi all,

I am at a loss. I am having a huge problem when I try to watch a 3D movie.

It seems like every movie I try to watch when it goes into a 3D scene the picture slowly starts to pull together
and before it can fully do so the scene changes angle then the process starts all over. It is kind of difficult to
describe so I hope you understand what I am talking about.
Has anyone had this problem as of yet?

At first Sony claimed nothing was wrong with my TV as I am unsure as to how they confirmed this while I was
on the phone with tech support. After about 8 hours of trouble shooting they finally agreed to have techs come
to my home. When the techs looked at my television they confirmed that this was normal!!! I told them I upgraded
from the 65HX950 and the 3D on that television worked flawless they had no answer for me. The techs did not
seem knowledgeable at ALL...

I thought you might be able to exchange it but June is perhaps too long ago. Sorry can't be of any help, I have never heard of 3D doing that on a Sony. Maybe someone who knows more about 3D can help.
I am sure you would like the problem resolved.

I have told many consumers not to buy these tv's and bloggers to wait.
post #1042 of 7170
I had a new update pushed out today. 1st new update since the 4k media server compatible one. Luckily my media server still works smile.gif. I wish there was a change log for these updates.

Very smart move by Sony! I thought the price would drop by years end, not this soon. Adding the models with no side speakers is commendable.
post #1044 of 7170
"They will be sold for $4999 for a 65” version and $3499 for a 55” version." Very commendable by Sony I and salute them for doing it. I wonder how long it will take them to come out with an OLED tv?

And the clock has to be reset every time there's an update.

My X1 is v 02.016

I can't find a way to tell what software the set is running, other than it is the most current version.
post #1046 of 7170
I didn't even think about checking the clock (you are right) or any ramifications of having the clock/date inaccurate.

Looks like LG is also offering 2 cheaper Ultra HD sets as well. New models for a 65" and 55", no camera and budget speakers. Good, the more 4K sets out there the more there will be a demand for 4K content.
The more there are 4K set owners manufactures/film makers will see a bigger market for providing 4K content.

I am having huge issues with mine and the wired ethernet. This message keeps popping up asking if I am connected every 30 seconds. Going to the ethernet menu shows that I am connected and everything is good but this message keeps popping up. Interesting part is that I can get youtube videos to play in the background so it obviously has a connection to the net but for some reason it keeps popping up. Anyone else have this issue?

This was LG's plan all along. Also, OLED was never supposed to take over the TV industry immediately. It will take time. 4K is doing alright, but it is at an entirely different price point. Also, 4K isn't really an alternative to OLED, more so a complimentary feature. They can both grow and develop at the same time. Panasonic and Sony are already planning to skip 1080p OLED. I would expect to see 4K panels at a $500 premium to otherwise equivalent panels by next year. My prediction is that we will also see 1080p OLED in 55" as low as $5000 or $6000 by some time next year.

If they can get OLED down to around 5K id be all for buying one. Not at 15K though. Thats just crazy rolleyes.gif Also, id much prefer 1080p because I game. Gaming hardware is just not up to the task of putting out 60fps or more at 4k. Just to get 60fps at 4k on a lot of games you would need 4 GTX Titans. Not to mention the problem of cable bandwidth. Interesting how display technology is limited more by input sources then the displays themselves.
