I'll probably just keep the Vizio in the living room.


Yes I do. The only thing I like better on the Sony is it gets brighter but the Vizio has better contrast, i actually prefer smartcast, Vizio picture and general settings and for some reason casting is also smoother on the Vizio with DTVN than the Sony. The sony also has better input lag for gaming so it’s perfect for the Pro

Vizio P65-E1 // Sony XBR49X900E
Sony Ht-ST5000 // RCA RTS7015B
Chromcast Ultra // Apple TV 4K

Maybe I'll move my PS4 Pro into the bedroom. It will give me something to do while I'm recovering.

Booyah!

Searched, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I imagine I missed it, but any.....Hello all and happy Saturday!!

1. New owner, as of earlier today....I actually got congratulated in the store, weird, but whatevs. I got the remote to connect to the my directv box and it'll flip channels, but I can't figure out how to make it bring up the normal guide for Directv or access the DVR for recorded shows. I know I can use the "Action Menu" on the remote, then click over and down a couple to access both the Directv guide and DVR, but is there an easier way to set that up?!

2. Similar note, anyway to program the sony remote to control the appletv i have connected?

3. Lastly, I've had a Denon surround sound receiver for the last 10 years on my previous tv using an optical in/output from the receiver to the tv. It doesn't work after plugging in the optical cord. Upon review of supported receivers, tis not on the list. Is it as simple as that, and I need to figure out a new sound system????

4. Best App for my IPhone to control all this craziness??

This TV is an update to my 2007 Samsung 46" LNT4661FX that I've had for 10 yrs

Hey Guys - I'm looking for a little help getting my 65" and Harmony 650 remote working. If this isn't the right place please let me know and I'll move it to the right section.

OK I watch TV with an over the air antenna and use my apple TV 4K for most everything else. The TV button on the Sony remote defaults to HDMI 1. Is there a way to change this? Second the antenna input is labeled Channels and there doesn't seem to be a remote command to set it to "Channels". You have to scroll through the inputs. Trying to get the harmony universal remote to do this has proved difficult. Has anyone else had these issues and what did you do?

2. Turn on Bravia sync. My ATV 4K is plugged in via HDMI 3, and the Sony remote controlled it out of the box. Should work flawlessly. I taped my ATV remote to the back of the Sony so I could just flip it over and use the trackpad and native controls, like the Siri mic button.

4. There's a Sony TV SideView app that controls the TV. Not sure about the rest. ATV of course has an app. Not sure you'll find one app that controls everything.

The next time I buy a TV in waiting till the new models are out and buying the old version or old model and buying the largest TV in that model line. I want a 75 inch next time. The 75X900E is less that 2,500 bucks. I learned a valuable lesson buying my first 4k TV and that's to wait till the new models are coming out.

Is there going to be a big quality difference between streaming content and the physical media?

Also, does anyone in here use Bias lighting with this TV? Any suggestions on one that works well if you do?
Hi there. Congrats on the new set. I would go with the stand alone Sony 4k player over the Xbox One S. I have a One S and a Sony x800 4k player and the 4k player is easily a better picture on both normal blu ray and 4k blu ray (4k HDR looks way better on the Sony player)

4k discs will look better than streaming for sure. A few good 4k discs to have would be Pacific Rim, Passengers, John Wick 2, and X-Men Apocalypse (X-Men looks freaking AMAZING)

I have gotten a lot of good feedback on my picture settings. Some don't like them and others love them. I like a picture with a little more contrast and pop than a "Pro Calibrated" picture. I like colors that are a bit more vibrant than realistic. I think my settings provide a little extra punch without being too overblown. Check out these videos I posted on YouTube to get started and hopefully you'll have a good enough idea of what each setting does to adjust on your own if you don't like mine as a baseline to start with.

By the way, I also use bias lighting and think it's a must. There is a little bit of blooming into the black bars but (which can be greatly reduced by lowering black levels just a tad and making sure you aren't watching the tv with too much of a tilt forward in it- more on that in my YouTube videos) but bias lighting makes it almost invisible...

4k HDR settings-

Standard settings-https://youtu.be/JUeu25SX178

Example of bias lighting effectiveness-https://youtu.be/qrw4eCk9SUo (This is a 55 inch 930d, not my 75 inch 900e)

Some recent pics

Passengers 4k
War for Planet of the Apes - Standard Blu Ray
Thor Ragnarok 4k

Oh and a word on motion settings. In movies (24 frames per second content) panning shots have a little bit of jerkiness to them because the pixel response time on this tv is so good. You can alleviate that by using the following motion settings. It smooths things out very well with a tiny bit of soap opera effect but it still looks very natural and doesn't wash out the colors or ad any artifacting
Motionflow Custom
Smoothness 1
Clearness Min
Cinemotion Medium.

Hey would you say the LED ambient light makes a huge difference? I'm really thinking of doing that this week.

If you are referring to the led light strip around the back of the tv yes. It makes a big difference especially watching movies in the dark.
1. Looks really cool
2. Helps with eye strain
3. Nearly eliminates the perception of light blooming into the black bars watching movies

Check out this video i posted on YouTube. This isn't the 900e, it's my 930d which has horrible blooming issues, the led lights behind it make it WAY less noticeable-

I would try to get one that goes all the way around the tv if you can. Or buy two from the same manufacturer and string them together to go all the way around. I tried stringing two from different sellers (Amazon) together but the colors didn't quite match. I think I paid a total of about 25 bucks for 2 of them to go all the way around my 75 inch and ended up having to cut a little off the end of the second one.

I think you'll like it a lot.

Thanks I saw a nice one that was 36 bucks I think. Said 6.6 feet of LED strips I think. Easy to install? Your video was awesome and even though YouTube you could tell it made a difference.

Yeah, super easy to install. The strip has an adhesive back, so you just peel off the paper and stick it to the back of the tv. Look for one that says it uses 3M adhesive. I got a cheap one once and it started to fall off the back of the tv after a few days.

Ok cool, more good advice, thanks. It does look like it makes a big difference.

I bought a Yamaha ats-1070 soundbar for the TV. I'd like to wall mount it. Since I'm wall mounting the TV with a tilt mount (no swivel) for the TV should I use a bracket to mount the soundbar to the TV or should I just have them mount it to the wall?

Also should it be over or under the TV? I'm going to be watching TV mostly from my bed- it's adjustable so I can be sitting up while watching.

Lastly, what's a good height to mount the TV? The TV will be approx 9-10' from my head.

Difference is huge. I will never own another tv without installing them. I have to wear corrective contact lenses and have issues with bright lights in a dark room. The bias lighting has completely eliminated eye strain watching movies in the dark also.

Thanks, just ordered some from Amazon. Hamlight biased lighting for 50-55 inch TV's. I can't wait to see what it does the experience. Thanks again for the help.

I've had the 900E for 7 months now and I couldn't be happier with it's performance. I've noticed something with the USB ports on the set. If you turn the set off with the remote the USB ports still get power, as most have found out. What I noticed is that if you leave it on an input screen when it's not receiving a signal it will turn itself off and also cuts power to the USB ports,.

Sony 49X900E

Awesome shots of the backlighting...pretty cool. Thanks for the info a few replies back up from this morning. I've got most of the things figured out, to include a new receiver! I have my directv remote controlling the volume on my receiver and have successfully connected it "officially" via the directv menu, but can't figure out how to change the input via ARC setting on the receiver with my directv remote. Anybody have any luck doing that? This would get me down to 2 remotes instead of 3. Receiver is a Yamaha RV-X383, thanks. Basically the only thing the Yamaha Receiver remote is used for now is to change the inputs within the ARC between Directv, AppleTV, PS4, and Bluetooth, nothin else needed.

Another option, if you don't have a set top box and would like to launch a specific app (such as SlingTV or Youtube TV) is to download the app Button Mapper. In which case you can have it launch any app you want. Works perfect for me since I use Youtube TV for my live TV. You can actually map any button you want, and can even configure double and long presses as well.

Posts discussing pricing removed. Look at the thread title, folks. Warnings issued.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

I have audio delay or lip sync issues with the xbr900e. At first I thought it was my HTNT5 soundbar. DirecTV-HDMI-soundbar-Arc-TV does not have the lag. But Xbox-HDMI-TV-Arc-Soundbar has lag as well as TV-Arc-soundbar (using apps) has lag. So I sent the soundbar off or repair and purchased the MT300 to get me by. But the MT 300 optical from TV continues to have lag. So it turns out the TV is the culprit. Anyone have a fix?

Got a 55" X900E this week and unfortunately it has the left edge light bleed/bloom issue that people had been posting about in this thread a few months ago.

I find it extremely distracting when playing driving games which is one of my main uses for the TV, so I'm returning it. Bought from an online retailer so the exchange process is more of a hassle than I want to deal with.

My set was manufactured in January 2018 while it seemed like most of the ones previously exhibiting the problem were made in October/November 2017.

Overall picture quality was very impressive with no dirty screen effect but the left edge light bleed/bloom was a dealbreaker for me. The search continues..

Had same issue forever. Went into sound options and turned off audio sync. Seemed the tv was trying to hard. Once i turned it off I don't have any issues anymore.

I recently noticed this after over a year of owning the tv. I can't see it at all From the couch or even almost in front. It doesn't show on any content from where sit. Is this a Dead pixel?
