Both sets have an excellent PQ. I am fortunate to have both sets in my home. Unless I were to place them side-by-side, I would be hard-pressed to declare absolute differences from one set to the other. Sorry if you expected me to declare a winner, but all I can say is that every time I turn on the 940D, I am absolutely thrilled with its quality.

Do colors come more natural to the X900A? I know quantum dots on it supposedly made a big difference.

I don't perceive a specific difference. Both sets are calibrated, of course. Refresh my memory, are you trying to decide to replace a X900a with a X940D?

For those of you not following the Premium Cable thread and are wondering what HDMI cables to order for HDR, here is a good recommendation:

It's certainly a set I'm considering. I'm not sold yet if there's been a big enough technological jump between what I have and HDR, but another stumbling block is the lack of a 65in Full Array Sony set. Jumping up to 75 with my space at the moment might be too much.

So that would be 650 nits for an oled that can do perfect blacks. Either way I'm sure the 940d is a good tv.......

I just noticed a setting under Network called "Remote Start". The description reads "Allows a mobile device to power on the TV from standby mode." Might be a setting to check.

Chad said the Sony 940D is the best LCD Tv out there? The LG G6 is the best set he has seen. But it is 10" smaller than the 940D so it has an advantage there.

Has he finished the calibration? I would be interested to hear, in general terms, whether the results he provided are significantly different than my settings, or marginally different. PM me if you prefer not to talk about It openly. Thanks.

you did have the expense of buying your equipment. And your time! But it's great you want to do this for a hobby! Chad's calibration is a bit more refined and I want to recommend him to anybody here who would want a calibration!
He did my 940D and my Panny ZT60 I have in the bedroom!
He was at my home for more than 9 hours! A real pro.
His HDR calibration really helped the 4K Blu-rays shine! I am going to rewatch all my 4K Blu-rays now!

After reconnecting the ethernet, the TV began turning itself on again. I've seen at least one other owner with this issue. Anyone else? Still waiting on Magnolia to respond with either a replacement or some feedback from Sony on this.

if indeed this is the issue, Sony can do remote diagnosis (over IP) and this should be easy to resolve

Thanks AustinJerry. I will check this as well and given that it seems to be related to whether the ethernet is connected, it may be related.

I checked and this was set to "off" so don't think this is related. I did turn off WIFI since it is hard wired.

Did you ever not think this ? LOL, I knew that a while back as this technology is just not changing that much year to year, now maybe every 3-5 years it is.....but generally not year to year.

Did Chad happen to mention the Samsung UN75KS9800? That is receiving a lot of accolades as well, but it doesn't come in a 75" and the 78" is very expensive!

No you don't need to remove any panels, just take the screws out of the top two holes and put the 2 bracket mounting screws in then screw the brackets to the back

Where are others seeing issues with motion? I am watching the NBA finals with all motion controls turned off, and I don't see any evidence of motion issues. And the overall PQ is exceptional.

No, but hard to compare as I have uverse. It does look pretty decent to my eye but nothing outstanding. I'm also using your 2.4 settings (thanks again)
