Guess I’ll wait two or three weeks and if doesn’t show, I’ll go with USB. Thanks for the replies.

So we've reached 300 spartans (umm, I mean pages)...yeay!!! Let's celebrate and pop in some nice HDR-10/LLDV moving pictures, get some bubbly, sit back and don your sunnies: it's gonna be a bright experience!!

Any-who...is the general consensus that the latest fw v6.5850 is good to go? Just auto-checked my last night and no go on my tele...

Per Sony, we're only getting these 2 improvements:

Benefits and Improvements
Improves general performance of the TV
Resolves a condition where there's no sound from the TV when output through a home audio system (Sound Bar, A/V Receiver, etc.)

When I push home again the Android TV UI is max brightness, as though it is Dolby vision levels of brightness. It's awful.

From Home, go into Apps or Featured, press Action Menu on the remote, then Picture adjustments.

I know that many of you will mirror my sentiments...but I DO NOT HAVE ANY REGRETS with this TV!

Just last night I started watching the series Versailles on Netflix; this show contains a plethora of vivid colours prevalent to 17th century fashion that made me check several times the source resolution...it was only 1080p HD. All of the imagery and clothing really popped, the wigs, dresses, the grandiose ballrooms, the Versailles palace itself - all that had a WOW effect more akin to an HDR native image not a mere 1080p!

I seriously believe this is a testament of how good the X1 Extreme processor is on our TV and the rendering of colours! And mind you, I'm coming from a Panny Plasma TV, which for a show like this, it is stellar, and still the Sony steals the cake!

Well done Sony - this is spot on...I'm grand about having this tele part of my HT room!

Good catch @R8ders2K .

Not sure if this will follow suit, swim the ocean and arrive stateside. Looking at the change log from the URL you posted, I don't recognize half of the improvements on that list, so they might not be applicable to our 940E model.

For instance, what is this bug about? I haven't seen it on any of our improvements list, AFAIK...but sounds like I want it??

"Resolves picture noise in Netflix Dolby Vision content (dark solarisation)"

Latest official FW can be downloaded here:

https://www.sony.com/electronics/sup...loads/00016043

The list isn't long:
- FandangoNOW - re-enables 4k playback
- General improvements
- Fixes TV audio when sending it to a soundbar or AVR

Nothing as major as last year when finally LLDV content was enabled...since I don't have any issues, I'm not rushing to manually update till it gets pushed to my unit.

I know many have given Sony grief for their FW updating process - but in comparison to my 4k UHD player (Cambridge Audio) they're superb. Last time CA pushed an update was over 1 yr ago...and considering that it is a clone of the Oppo 203, they're as slow as molasses. Therefore, in my eyes, Sony is pretty much on their ball by releasing frequent fixes for big and small bugs alike.

I have a stand i could sell also as I have my TV wall mounted, if you are still looking for one and I'm in FL as well.

Keep in mind that this is a major update because it is the replacement Oreo update from the earlier botched (and subsequently pulled) Oreo update. So this update replaces that one and adds additional features as well.

If you already installed the previous Oreo update before it was pulled then this one is,
comparatively minor, but the purpose of this one is to replace that update.

Copy that - it makes sense. I haven't checked as of late what FW version my unit has, but I do recall manually updating it early in the year...FYI, my auto update is OFF, which I believe should be the standard setting.

I haven't seen anyone on this forum, who after updating, strongly suggested NOT to upgrade to version 6.5850...so it sounds like it's advisable to do so regardless. I may just download it on my USB and do the upgrade process.

And remember mates, always perform a manual reset before and after performing the FW upgrade.

Just wondering...not that I sanction this (I'm no expert) but what would happen if you install the US version firmware on your Aussie tele? It is essentially same unit, so the capabilities should be identical...

Are the any empirical tests on this?

I say go for it. I installed it a while ago and it really did fix the sound issue. I use the built-in apps and ARC, so that was driving me nuts! 4k playback on Fandango again is nice (don't know why it went away), but it still doesn't support HDR ... I didn't do another full factory reset and didn't notice any issues (I did one with the previous update).

we use the ATV4k and find it better than native app also.

I'm in the market for a 75" set, or possibly an 85", I've seen the 940e recommended many times on AVS and just read the past 5 or 6 pages of this thread. I'm sure it's been covered before, but I didn't see it, how do the Sony 900F and 950G compare to the 940e? Pros and cons of one versus the other?

Since the 940e is a 2017 set is it lacking anything that the newer sets may offer in terms of technology or performance?

940E has better blacks (almost perfect blacks) and contrast ratio. It’s on par with OLED in PQ. The 900F and 950G are steps down (I own a 950G also). The only thing the 940E doesn’t have is IMAX Enhanced. There are only a couple of 4K Blu Ray IMAX Enhanced discs as it is and it’s not a big deal, at least to me. The 950G has a newer remote and a better working OS.

The 940E (and the 940D) will go down as the best LCD’s that Sony ever made for PQ. I would suggest reading the rtings reviews for the panels you are interested in.

Nice to hear someone's opinion who's owned both. If you had to choose one between the two which would it be and what would sway your opinion?

I'm assuming the better picture of the 940E trumps the OS of the 950G?

The Rtings review states motion blur is an issue. Is this a problem in real world viewing?

Just updated, it also fixes the HDR mode for the native YouTube app. It now adjusts the brightness and color space for HDR content. It only took two years after release...

The Rtings review states motion blur is an issue. Is this a problem in real world viewing?
Motion blur doesn't seem to be a real concern in real world viewing, and I certainly DID NOT experience it - albeit, I don't watch fast moving sports, only movies/shows. However, if it is a problem, most of us use the MOTION setting [Custom | Smoothness = 3 | Clearness = 1 (or even 2)], and that normally clears up any motion blur issues.

I've said it a few times in the last few months, but I'll say it again because it is worth the effort - I will buy the 940E in a heartbeat...go for it mate!

I'm assuming the better picture of the 940E trumps the OS of the 950G?

Oddly enough, motion blur actually helps in smoothing the appearance of slow frame rate material, ie movies! But you can see it clearly in Golf. Just watch the ball when they put, and you will see the double image of two balls, one slightly following the other. That is motion blur and no settings have I found will eliminate this because it is not a processing issue, it is a panel response issue. Fast motion past things like picket fences and other uniformly spaced images will show this as well. But overall your eye/brain gets past it. I am more attracted to the dynamic range between dark and bright. And the 940E never dissapoints me.Wet roads at night with reflected light and explosions and weapons fire just illuminate the room, it is very impressive.
