I use Auto, and let the Sony upscale.
I never use the Oppo's 2x4k
I'm not an expert and not really sure what to use.
There are several of these type of settings:
- Scene select sync
- Light sensor
- LED Dynamic Control
Based on my testing, the first two should always be set to Off. The LED Control should be On--I get the best PQ with it set to Standard, while several others use Low.
Interesting. I use the BDP93, and with it set to Auto, the X900 receives a 1080p or 1080p/24 signal. If you have an AVR in the middle, make sure the up-scaling in the AVR is turned off for the Blu-ray source.
I see so many comments and experiences on this forum, and hoping to have my questions answered here. I contacted Sony but either they don't seem to know, or they are just trying to take time out of me.
I got my TV delivered yesterday. I hooked up with Internet and lack of some of the functionality, just threw me away.
(1) What I noticed is that, Netflix app on the TV doesn't have streaming 3D movies at all. I have 15 MBPS internet speed and I hooked up my friend's LG 4K TV, through my own Wifi (my friend's stays next door) and his LG 4K TV showed 3D movies on my Netflix account logged in from his TV, but the same app, same internet would not show 3D movies on netflix. There is no VUDU app with Sony, anyways. Moreover, I was being told by Sony rep, that, Sony's video unlimited doesn't have any 3D movies for any 4K TV. What it boils down to is that, Sony's 4K TV (after spending nearly $6000) doesn't have 3D streaming capability, at all !!! I know, watching 3D through Blu-ray is an option, but first of all, I cannot imagine, that, such a costly TV doesn't have any source of 3D streaming content. Second, I do not want to go out during mid-night to rent 3D blurays, if I feel watching 3D Movies during that time. I mean, it's question of flexibility. What you guys experienced? Did not this bother you?
(2) I do not have 4K media player yet, but looking at the movie collection on 4K media player, I am hesitant to buy one. I mean, I don't see, many good content over there yet. Plus, all movies are like $8 for 24 hours rent. Whoever owns 4K player, along with this TV, can you please share your experience to me? Without, 4K media player and no 3D streaming movies, it would be like using this TV equivalent to regular $1500/$2000 HDTV !!
(3) I bought Samsung's 4K upscaling Bluray player BD-F7500, and then rented regular Bluray of Hangover Part 3, but the TV did not show any message like "4K signal received" etc.? Anyone out here, with TV and samsung's 4K upscaling bluray player? I bought Samsung's 4K upscaling bluray player over Sony's 4K upscaling, because, through Samsung's product, at least I can watch streaming 3D content over bluray's netflix and Vudu app. Plus, believe me, Samsung 4K bluray's Internet Browser is must more faster than Sony's 4K TV. Samsung browser is also capable of Flash media streaming, so in case, if you want to stream webvideo, it is easy. But, somehow I could not get 4K upscaling done. I was being told by Samsung rep that the Bluray supports 4k upscaling for any movie Bluray disk as far as frame rate is equal or less than 24 fps. I could not find or don't know, how to find Bluray, which I rented from Redbox, frame rate. Anyone out here who knows, or anyone out here, tell me how to watch regular bluray with true 4K upscaling? I think, my HDMI cable is capable of high transfer rate - I mean, the 3D movies from bluray worked perfectly fine, so I presume, the HDMI should be capable of transferring 4K for this Sony TV?
(4) What you guys are doing with extended warranty? I checked few, but could not decide? So need help from someone experienced here.
I checked Square-Trade, but realized, that, they have cap on coverage i.e. total coverage amount cannot exceed the cost of the product. Sony is selling their own extended coverage however I do not like their Pixel burnout policy i.e. Pixel burnout repairs which does not impair normal viewing are not included. In comparison, BestBuy's policy is anything more than 3 pixel issue on entire screen qualifies for repair/replacement. Additionally, Sony's manufacturer's warranty is as worst as it seems on Pixel burnout -- If I read it correctly, it would tell me that, Sony's manufacturer's warranty will NOT cover pixel issue upto 0.01% of total resolution -- i.e. in this case, 8 millions pixel, so as far as, you have about 800 pixel having burning issue, they will not cover !!! That sounds weird !! I mean, ultimately, these are LCD TVs and are prone to pixel burnout issues, so wondering, what you guys bought for this one? BestBuy one is costly -- it is $799 for 5 years !!!
(5) I saw initially discussion on this forum about frame rate of the panel. I contacted Sony few times and everytime I asked, I was being told by them that it is 240 Hz Native panel rate. I even mentioned them that, on Amazon etc, it is 120 Hz. They said, the data we have is more accurate. I could not follow the initial discussion on frame rate on this forum, as the forum is lengthy enough, so wondering, if anyone got any conclusive answer later on?
has anyone seen this tv?
Apparently it's 240hz 4k
I had checked this one and LG person confirmed to me after talking to someone in their engineering team --- that this has 120 Hz panel and some logic in it upgrades to 240 Hz. In that comparison, you can say, Sony is better option. Good part on this LG tv is that, it has Netflix version which supports streaming 3D movies from netflix whereas the Sony one does not.
Netflix will work in Australia too, if you have Hidemyass Pro account and a configurable router to support the VPN. Check their website or google for more info. I am not sure, if it is legal though. It should be, bcoz, many seem to be using it, but do your own research too.
Do you have a bluray player which does 4K upscaling? If yes, which one it is ? Sony or Samsung one?
