That´s good news, maybe you want to take your laptop to the store and check the new set right there before delivery to your home, you don´t need to take out the TV from the box, just pulling up the top box and taking down the protective bag you can turn on the tv and check the uniformity with the laptop, If the new set is good, ok, take it home, but if it is not, give me a refund. When I can, I always do this, its a time and headache saver. wink.gif

As mentioned in a previous post, Gamma=0 produces the best results on my set.  Otherwise, no significant difference between our settings.

Funny, I get 42 ft-L with a 100% pattern and backlight at 3. Mine is the 55" though.

Nothing.

Same error on TV. Cannot connect to media player. Tried it with the TV network wired and wireless. So it's definitely not the network.

To quote Dr. Emmitt L. Brown, "My God. Do you know what this means? It means that this damn thing doesn't work at all!"

Any ideas on my next step?

Yes, it has nothing to do with your network. That error is misleading. Disconnect everything from your TV from all your HDMI ports except for the 4k server. Also disconnect the HDMI port 2 cable from the 4k server. Turn it on with both TV and 4k server being on one network connection. It should work now.

The 4k server has knows issues if you have Directv GENIE DVR connected to any port. This unit has to be fully off for the 4k server to work. On mine, there is issues even if my receiver is plugged into HDMI port 2 on the TV. Sony is aware but is saying the issue is with Directv and they have to solve it.

On a bright note, anyone check out that Bicycle movie.. that is the most visually stunning 4k movie that I have seen

I'm not having any issues into HDMI 1 although I am passing the genie through an AVR first.

Yeah, I am sure they have to build out what ever inventory they have left, and sell it off...at least the prices should drop until all the products are gone..

Im calibrating a whole bunch of settings under different scene selects.

 

They do not stick.

Im positive for cinema 2 I had color at 45, now it's moved on it's own. I also had picture at 80, it's now on max etc...

Any way of saving these settings so they do not move?

post #2558 of 7188
change input from current to common

When you select Options, Scene Select, you are presented with a list of scenes (cinema, sports, etc.). If you select Sports, for example, and then go in and change settings for that mode, the settings should be preserved for Sports. Now if you go in and select Cinema, and then look at the settings for Cinema, the settings should be different from the ones you set for Sports. That is the way it works. There are some settings (e.g. white balance) that are global settings, and will apply to all scenes. Go back and try again and report your results.

very handy; I print out a manual and keep it in the TV room; I grabbed the pdf, and put it on my tablet for easy viewing, and, of course, having the owners manual available at all times by pushing a button on the remote is a fantastic feature on this TV!

That's what I do.

I change settings in each category. For example, In Cinema 1 and 2 (under cinema scene select) I have Sharpness and color set to 45 specifically.

When i go back to that category the settings have changed.

ok so you choose the scene select first in this case cinema, the you hit "options" on the remote and then you go to "picture adjustments" first option on the top will be "Setting Memory" press it and then you can choose between common or current input where "common" will be the one that saved for all the inputs.

ABBAS!! I am giving you a cyber- BJ!

Your solution was 1000% correct. I unplugged the DirecTV HDMI cord from the TV, turned on the 4k media server....and worked like a charm! Unbelievable!
I must've spent 40-50 hours trying to solve this. THANK YOU!!

Sony needs to put this warning on its website. Good god.

So, do you have a DTV Genie DVR?

post #2573 of 7188
I'm sitting within the screens narrow boundary but even so, the left side of the screen is brighter than the right. On the green Motion Picture Ratings screen the right side of the screen has deeper color than the left. There is also a purplish tint on a black screen. This and the too narrow viewing angle is too distracting. You have to sit right in the middle to get the best picture and that is not acceptable. I already had one replacement TV. I'm going to contact Sony today.

So you can only choose ONE common setting?

How do you save multiple settings?

The settings are per scene...but common across all the inputs when the common setting is turned on. This way Cinema/Game/Sports all have their same respective settings (per scene) on HDMI 1 and 2 if they are both set to common.

I'm having trouble trying to buy a movie off the 4k server. I've entered my credit card information on the sony network entertainment website, but keep getting an error message on the server when trying to purchase a flick. Is there something else I need to do? Thank in advance.

I wonder what is different with the Genie? I have two networked HR24 DVR's, and they don't cause any problems with the Media Player.
