El Dorado is a 7 min clip that is just eye popping amazing looking. It starts at night with a womane driving an el dorado in what looks like vegas or somewhere with a lot of neon. Blacks are deep and tie color from the neon signs just pop off the screen. There are also some underwater and land footage like something you would see on the National Geographic and those are just amazing looking as well. I saw a few minutes of the new Total Recall on the Media Player and that also looks very sharp and clean.

Once you seen some of the clips on the media player and some of the more recent movies, you can easily tell the difference. Even though the up scaling of 1080p content makes things look better, it is not match for a true 4k movie transfer and even more impressive are more recent movies that were shot digitally and transferred to 4k. What will really make things shine is when they start releasing movies on the player that were shot in 4k like some of the short films they have on the player.

Thanks for the feedback. I personally have been very skeptical of the "mastered in 4K" Blu-ray series, and it's clear that these will NOT be a substitute for true 4K media.

I'm hoping that the PS4 gets access to the Sony Video Unlimited 4K service sooner rather than later!

Really not looking forward to buying a new HDMI 2 AVR. I just got the one I have now which does 4K pass through/upscaling.

I sure hope so. I currently have a 5300ES which does not even support 3D (it's HDMI 1.2 only), and don't want to replace it with a AVR that only supports HDMI 1.4.

I just want a HDMI 2.0 receiver. I don't care about upscaling to 4K in the receiver (heck, the x900a TV already does that!) - I just want HDMI 2.0 passthrough....

Thanks - can you please provide more info?

Does your W802A only pass 5.1 back to the AVR when using the TV's built-in tuner?

If you plug a XB360 or PS3 into the W802A and play games, do you get 5.1 passed back through to the AVR over ARC, and is it in DD5.1 or PCM?

If you play a Blu-ray movie on the PS3 into the W802A, do you get a high bitrate audio (e.g. Dolby True HD) passed back over ARC to the AVR?

Sorry for all the questions. I just got a 65x900a, but my 5300ES receiver is so old that it does not support ARC over HDMI, so I cannot test this out.

If the x900a will send every type of audio codec back through to the AVR over ARC, that would make my device connections MUCH simpler, as everyone in my house (including me) greatly prefers using the TV interface to select between input devices, as opposed to having everything going through the AVR and selecting there. My only need to even have the AVR is for surround sound, so if the X900a will send all HDMI device audio back to the AVR over ARC, I could get a replacement AVR that supports ARC and bet set.

Thanks, in advance.

But anything else that's fed to the TV, like multichannel DTS (lossy or lossless) and multichannel PCM is downmixed to 2.0 PCM. Whether it's a limitation of ARC or Sony's audio processing ICs inside the TV I don't know for sure (though I'm leaning towards the latter), but it's not a fault with the X9. My 55HX823 was exactly the same.

Do you know if it will pass DD5.1 through over the optical out, or only over HDMI ARC?

Thanks!

Go to the top of the onscreen menu and choose the item above "Applications" (sorry, I'm not at my TV - I think it's called "Features"?). There are typically four advertisements there. One of them should link to the Netflix, Hulu Plus deals. That'll give you a link to go to from a computer, where you register and then you'll get activation codes via email.

The Netflix code will add one year of service to an existing account.

What blows is that the free year of Hulu Plus is only for NEW subscribers. I just subscribed one month ago, so I can't get the free year. That sucks.

To be clear, they never said that they were the same TV's, just that they had the same specs. On the flip side, they never did mention that they were switching from passive to active 3D. I would consider that a different spec, personally, but a lot of people wouldn't. The end result is both models should look identical in terms of PQ, aside from the known benefits/drawbacks of the type of 3D used.

If you do a compare on Sonystyle.com when they mention that panel, the 900a is listed as OptiContrast Panel while the 850A Deep Black Panel. I would assume that the difference can potentially effect PQ from one set to the other.

I just bought the movie Life Cycles. Never heard of it before. You can also rent it. But wow. WOW. shot in ultra HD. took forever to download. But it was well worth it.
The visuals are what this TV was made for. Check it out. I think most of you will enjoy it. I previewed it and thought I'd buy it ....so I can be with those visuals. There is
nothing else like it on video unlimited. the older movies look really really great (some of them, anyway) but they do not look like this. Preview it and see.

You are correct, it was breathtaking to say the least. While the 4K movies are good and if you are planning on buying those movies, I would suggest getting the 4k versions vs. buying retail blu ray because they are much better. I can't wait till we get movies on the service that were originally filmed in 4k. Almost all of the movies so far are converted to 4k, which does make them look better than their blu ray versions, but not as good as what a true 4k movie would look like.

Most movies today are filmed in native 4K, or higher (5K)... The majority of older movies, shot on film, are scanned in at 4K resolution, and some film types are scannable up to 8K. There are very few big budget Hollywood movies that were not shot in native 4K or shot on film that wasn't scannable at high resolution. In fact, the only movie I can think of that was filmed in only 1080p was Star Wars: Phantom Menace, and even then, film was used for the majority of the scenes (still, that's some great foresight Lucas showed there...)

So, these movies aren't being "converted." They're all native, for the most part, or scanned in at 4K. Cameras will improve, of course, as will compression algorithms, but if you're waiting for movies to be shot in native 4K, that boat sailed a long time ago smile.gif

According to this sony page on the XBR-65X850A, the X850 is active 3D, and does come with 4 free active glasses.

 

Personally, I think going active is a mistake, but the entire industry is in such absurd turmoil right now who knows what'll be offered by BF.

Thanks for clarifying. It just seems like some of the clips on the media player are amazing and so hi-res that any of the movies on the service that I have seen don't compare. For example the El Dorado clips is just stunning and one of the more impressive things I have seen in 4k so far. I would love to see what 4k Avatar looks like.

Any word on when there would be 4k 3d movies? That would be impressive.

I think the difference you're seeing in quality has to do with film grain. Shooting in digital eliminates much of that film grain. A good example of this is to compare the Amazing Spiderman with the remastered Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters has a nice film grain to it (some people like the classic look that film grain provides), and Spiderman is crystal clear. Ghostbusters was shot on film and that film was scanned in at high resolutions. The Amazing Spiderman was shot digitally on a Red Epic. To eliminate film grain on older prints, studios have to employ digital noise reduction, which destroys the picture (check out Predator on Blu-Ray).

No word yet on 4K 3D, at least not that I've heard. Red was pushing hard for 4K 3D for their laser projector, but that hasn't seen the light of day yet, and has missed its estimated ship date. From what I hear, it's going to be quite some time before it's released.

Active 3D TVs should be able to do 4K 3D, but like most things 4K at the moment, there's been no word when that content will be available.

Either way, the XBR couldn't handle 4K in 3D, so for this set, it's a moot point. Honestly, I'm perfectly happy with the passive 3D performance on this TV. I don't think 4K 3D could make me any happier than I am right now.

thanks for that Hawkmoon. glad you thought so too.

there are several movies i want to buy here. but how can i fit them all on the media player and buy more later? i do not see that i can delete the ones that are on there but i have to purchase. and i like having the first ten. any suggestions. some of the old movies are spectacular. and i want them. the real 4K is coming. I am up to 753.7GB and have only bought 3 movies. I want several more. any help? i'd really like to know how to manage them sony will be adding tons of movies i am sure. but 2TB is not THAT much. thanks so much. rich

My wife has been joking lately that the reason I got this TV is to keep from going out and getting glasses! LOL!!! But honestly, when you are sitting 11ft away from the TV, a little 32" set doesn't cut it!
If u only calibrate with that disc , u can't get the full power of the TV ! U have to calibrate both gamma and color temp. as well ! B4 I am using eyeone to calibrate all of my projector and TV , after that u will get a really amazing picture quality , but the down side is take longer time to achieve it , try and error is painful !

The media player has a USB input for an external hard drive. Add with that.

You are correct, S&M will only take you so far. However, using CalMAN 5 and a colorimeter, I found that on both of my current Sony displays (HX909 and XBR4), the default Gamma of -2 was spot on, and the adjustments in White Balance were minor. So, I would guess a calibration with S&M will get you to 80-90% accuracy, which isn't too bad. Certainly better than out of the box settings...

Same here. I am afraid that Sony's direction is back to active 3D, so I didn't want to miss the boat. Besides, the X900 is available now, and I didn't want to wait any longer.

Yeah and it is also worth buying/renting films shot in 70mm and 65mm Todd AO that were made in the early 60's and transferred to blu-ray. Even though the are 1080p the sharpness blows away most pictures made today.
Movies like "Cleopatra (50th anniversary), Ben Hur, Lawrence of Arabia, How the West was Won", etc. Most of the films shot in 70mm really shine with these Sony 4k sets. Don't always think new is better. From what I understand they just quit shooting in 70mm because of the expense although there are a few shot in 70mm like "Samsara" which is really worth buying and is only a couple of years old. I watched it on my 4K set and was amazed how sharp and rich it looked.

You can add an external Hard Drive to the player. They make several in 3-4tb size, which would double the internal one if you went with the 4tb. There are more HDD on the horizon that will be bigger as well. The only questionable thing that Sony did was put a USB 2.0 port in the back of the player and a USB 3.0 in the front. USB 3.0 transfer speed is much faster, so if you want the faster transfer time you would need to route a 3.0 cable from the front to wherever you place the HDD. I have a spare external 2tb HDD laying around that is both 3.0 and 2.0. Perhaps if I get time I will hook it up and test if the speed of 2.0 vs. 3.0 makes a difference when running 4k movies. Not sure when I can do this, but I will give a shot when I have time.

Does anyone know if you can hook up 2 external Hard Drives? One to the front USB 3.0 and one to the back USB 2.0?
post #1523 of 7315
I wonder if an external hard drive requires a special format and a 7200 RPM? Perhaps the media player formats the external hard drive.

From what I read it does format the external HDD to whatever it needs in order to save to it. Not sure if there is a requirement for speed however...but like any HDD I would assume a faster one would be better.

I know, but that is the only thing I have to work with at the moment. At least it will get me close-ish.

Well, the good news is despite Best Buy delivery being 2 hours late and not calling to let me know (I was starting to get livid when I was told between 11am-1pm and had to call them at 2:30pm to find out where my TV was!) and then not wanting to follow through with (1)unboxing the TV and (2)setting it on it's stand, (3)connecting the existing HDMI cable and (4)power it on to make sure it worked; my TV arrived today! I can understand that they can't put it on the wall mount for liability reasons, but these four things were supposed to be included in the standard delivery. I finally managed to get them to take the (1)top of the box off and (2)connect power - half of what they were supposed to do! At least it's here and undamaged. It had the sticker on the box for the media player so I was pretty assured by what I've been reading that it has the HDCP2 upgrade. Further inspection of the back with the HDMI4 port in the same area as 1 and 3 instead of down and to the right told me that this unit will not need the CX2 board (the input board for the HDCP2 upgrade).

I have it mounted on my wall but haven't hidden my wires yet. I've been too busy having fun with it!!! OH MY GOD I love this set! I finally have a picture that matches my sound in size! smile.gif

The built in speakers after a few minutes of watching kinda just disappear. They also sound AMAZING for TV speakers. They don't stand up to my Klipsch by any means, but if I didn't have those, I honestly wouldn't mind if I had to listen to the sound just from the TV. Motion from my Xbox 360 playing my favorite racing games is fluid and doesn't feel like it lags at all. The colours right out of the box with very little adjustment yield very life like flesh tones, great blacks and whites without being over saturated or "poppy". When I do get a chance to use my S&M disc I don't expect to have to change very much - but if it can get better than this I will be truly blown away!

I've never been big on 3D - it tends to hurt my eyes - so I wasn't purchasing this TV for viewing in 3D. Also, I have no 3D media for this same reason. But, with everyone saying how good the 3D is on this set, I had to at least try the 2D to 3D conversion. The picture was just about as bright as 2D and the very light weight glasses didn't hurt my eyes compared to other 3D demos I have seen. My wife's eyes did start bothering her early on so I think we are still going to stay away from 3D viewing, even though this set really seems to deliver the goods!

Note to those of you who may buy the 65" set and use the wall mounting kit from Monoprice, you will need to drill a mounting hole on the wings, flip the wings inside out on the arms and buy M6 screws to mount the wings to the TV. Otherwise it works great! It's not flush against the wall since it is a FULL motion mount, but as someone else stated earlier, this TV isn't really supposed to be a disappearing ultra thin unit to begin with so that doesn't bother me in the least.

I am REALLY happy with my decision to go with this set vs the ZT60 I was originally looking at getting. Now it is time to do the final changes to my design and then build my entertainment cabinets around everything.

Interesting. I actually had the ZT60 65" version before getting the 65" 900A. I loved the ZT60 and it had a great picture, but my set did suffer from IR issues. I basically had the NFL Network logo IR'd onto my screen for 5 days straight. I just could not deal with having to baby the set and worrying about potential IR issues, so we returned it and got he 900a. All in all, imho it has a better picture simple due to the up scaling of 1080p content. Also for gaming and computer use it has been a lot better because of the scaling as well. I have been extremely happy with this set so far. Still tweaking stuff here and there and enjoying all aspects of the set.

I was hoping on using my $200 card from Sony to help purchase some 4K movies but I cannot get it entered on the Sony site. The card has 16 numbers and the site only accepts 12. Has anyone been able to find a way to utilize them through the movie site?

Congrats on the tv! Now when you say out of the box settings look good, do you mean the standard or cinema 1 settings? I can't wait until mine is delivered Monday. Any movies you suggest watching first?

there are several movies i want to buy here. but how can i fit them all on the media player and buy more later? i do not see that i can delete the ones that are on there but i have to purchase. and i like having the first ten. any suggestions. some of the old movies are spectacular. and i want them. the real 4K is coming. I am up to 753.7GB and have only bought 3 movies. I want several more. any help? i'd really like to know how to manage them sony will be adding tons of movies i am sure. but 2TB is not THAT much. thanks so much. rich

A member, I can't remember who, posted earlier that movies could be deleted. I for one only hope to keep about 3 or 4 of the movies the server comes with. I'm anxious to hear how the external hard drives work. I'm guessing once you hook one up to the media player, it allows you to choose where the movie can be stored? How big are the movie files anyway? I have a 3 TB western digital I plan on hooking up...

The Netflix code will add one year of service to an existing account.

What blows is that the free year of Hulu Plus is only for NEW subscribers. I just subscribed one month ago, so I can't get the free year. That sucks.
just create a new account
