As long as they all use the same 'input' that would be true. You may not make my settings.

BBC iPlayer

Has anyone managed to sideload the BBC iPlayer app? I've only managed to find a touch screen version and a version for the nVidia shield. Just wondering if there is an actual version for Android TV. I would appreciate any advice or a link to an APK. Cheers.

Does anyone know if you can save settings in the 940c for a Day time setting and a Night time setting so you can switch between the two? I think you can because Carlos had shown one for day and one for night in his "Shootout" and i'm sure he wasn't resetting all the settings twice a day. If so can you tell me how to save the settings? Thanks

Well that makes me feel a lot better. Still going to return it. I like the TV but if i'm spending close to $3k i better not have ANY problems with it.

Not without switching modes. He used two different modes and set one for day and one for night.

Ok , that sucks . Sad that it is so . Had a little higher expectations for this TV , given all the praise Sony gets for its motion handling .
I have thought that it is my TV that's wrong.

I think some of you guys need your eyes calibrated. Judder is nonexistent on the Sony 940c, if you think it has judder you better never ever buy a Samsung 4K or you will be in bad trouble.

You seem to be more well-informed . Do you think this problem can be fixed with an firmware update?

Yes, simply while on the same input, toggle between picture modes. I use Cinema Home and Cinema Pro as they give you the same types of adjustments.

None at all, and I am one that is very very sensitive to it. I am sure others that own the 940c would agree no judder/stutter or whatever else you guys are seeing.

rtings.com is a joke anyways. They give half baked copy and pasted reviews.

All I will say is you guys better stay away from Samsung.

I posted this a while back. When my tv is off or on a black screen, you can see weird vertical colors (looks kind of like water color) when the light hits the screen a certain way. There are several of these across the screen , all vertical and colorful. If you are not paying attention to detail, the screen just looks black. Anyone notice this? I have a week and half left to return in case this is a problem. I don't have a Best Buy close that carries this model on display.

Tbh the only time i can see it is when the camera quickly pans from left to right or vice versa. In all other cases the picture is superb. I can be very "anal" when it comes to looking for faults/issues so for most people it's probably not an issue. It doesn't stop me enjoying my films but it's a bit of a nuisance. Also im only basing this off watching movies streamed from my pc to my raspberry pi/ kodi box so bear in mind that could be a factor. I'll look at playing from an external hard drive or using the ps4's bluray player to see any differences.

Hey Viper. Do you use any motionflow settings or cinemotion settings? I think mine are off. I wouldn't say my motions have judder, but definitely hard to see from motion blur.

Definitely the source could play a part in it I would try multiple sources to see if that is the problem.

I have mine off and don't experience any judder. Just curious if I can clear up the motion blur.

I have not noticed any judder on my x930c. Had it since mid December.

(I pretty much use the Cinema Pro Shootout settings, with minor adjustments for brightness and gamma for everything. FWIW, I didn't think I liked those settings initially. I thought they were too dark and dull. But after a couple of days, I think my eyes adjusted to the picture, if that makes any sense. As a comparison, sometimes I'll hit the 'Live Football' button just to see that vibrant 'in store demo pop'. After I regain my eyesight from the brightness, I switch it off and remember why I like my current settings.)

I think the judder is the wrong term. It's more of a flicker. When you look at straight lines on screen when the camera pans quick. Judder seems to mean poor playback performance.

That's are exactly the ones you describe . Clearly visible when someone moves. Feels like the picture jumps in small movements. Sorry for bad english , but I hope you understand . Just want to know if it could be wrong on television , because then I change it for a new set.

Open Netflix. Then hit the Action Menu button on the remote. Select picture adjustments. At the top under picture adjustments menu, it will read Apps(video) .
