Ok.. thinking on getting a refurbished unit on. eBay, it would replace a Samsung 65” js9500 . I’m thinking on buying it over the 900f, 950g and Q90R. What do you guys think?? I don’t game at all.

I would check out the TV on amazon over Ebay. Also its better overall compared to a 900F, 950G but probably not as good as a Q90R overall but vastly cheaper

Please see the attached. They work very well for me after months and months of tweaking every setting there is...YMMV, but this may be helpful.

Cheerio!

P.S. some have complained at times (myself included) that DV on this set seems too dim. I found that some DV feeds are better than others, akin to how some 1080p feeds are superior to others...my reference DV picture is Altered Carbon on Netflix (I've given my settings for this series), and it's simply SUPERB!


Thank you very much for posting this. I just recently removed my 940e off the living room wall and placed it in a smaller room above the garage to create a small theater. I am repurposing my audio equipment and just getting back into this crazy hobby. That being said I downloaded the video setting sheets and paid close attention to the HDR setting you had, I just purchased the Panasonic 820 player and hoped to marry your settings with my new source. I understand much of this is preference but wanted to ask a question. Seeing that the color bar is set to 73 in the settings you attached, I found it to be too hot. I matched your other settings but just thought too much red. I was only using the Gladiator disc as a reference but wanted to chime in now to start the dialog. Again thank for posting. Please keep in mind everyone has their own preferences and can tweek from one setup to another. I just thought that backing off the color by say 23 (now at 50) was a lot more than preference so I was hoping I did something wrong.

According to flatpanelshd, looks like only "select" 2018 and 2019 Sonys are getting the AirPlay 2 and HomeKit update with Android 9 "Pie".

Quote:
Applicable products

2019:
XBR Z9G series
XBR A9G series
XBR X950G series
XBR X850G series (55/65/75/85 inches)

2018:
XBR Z9F series
XBR A9F series
So, I'm assuming that there are some other hardware requirements other than just having the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

Sony XBR-75X940E
Onkyo TX-NR797
DIRECTV HS17 + C61K
Oppo UDP-203
TV 4K

Nothing wrong at all. Color at 50 is the best option for reference (accurate color).

Not sure what Roku means by 4K HDR 60HZ. I know this TV is capable of 4K but on auto detect, it will only go up to 30hz. Do I have a setting wrong? I believe I have HDMI set to auto. I have both a Roku Premiere and a Streaming Stick+. I am running this through a Denon 7200WA into the input 2 of the tv. I looked and the Denon says it can do 2160P 60hz. Was wondering if this was an 8 bit, 10 bit thing? I also have a 4k Amazon Fire Dongle, but I don't see the detailed options that the Roku offers.

With my 75Z9D TV the 2019 Roku selected 4K HDR 60HZ, but then later on (couple of hours later maybe) the TV complained that it was receiving a signal that it couldn't display. I power cycled the Roku and manually set it to 4K HDR 30Hz and so far (fingers crossed) it have behaved.

With my X940E TV it's 2019 Roku selected 4K HDR 30Hz.

Thanks I love the hobby and I can't believe, how much has changed since I first jumped in with a Pioneer 730 had it calibrated, used a progressive scan DVD player and thought it was the cats pajamas. Ohhh yeah and the antenna in the attic to watch the masters in HD!!! Thanks again for the response. Now to find an Oppo 203.

Best of luck finding a Oppo at a reasonable price. For me our Sony 75 inch 9400E (US 940E) is the best TV that we have purchase. I wont by another Tv not unless it has better blacks that the 9400E and has a Peak Brightness over 3000 Nits. I'm not greedy, most will agree with me on this.

Main Room Sony KD-75X9400E Display, AMP. Yamaha RX-A3050. Front Mains, 2x Dali Concept 8. Klipsch Center, Surround and Rear Surrounds, 4X Dali Ikon 1. Ceiling 4X B&W CCM 382.

Thanks. Is there any media that is 4K HDR 60HZ?

I really don't know. I figured that I'd cross that bridge when/if I come to it.

Check the Roku thread. At least with the Ultra there are all kinds of display issues on the latest firmware.

I do follow that thread and don't see 'all kinds of display issues' with my Roku Ultras. All three of my 2019 models seem to be doing fine.

There is definitely an injection of preference here vs reference. For more than a decade I had a Panny Plasma which rendered colors differently (more intense yet natural way...only the way a plasma tv could) than the 940E. I still have the Panny, it’s serving as the family TV set.

As a sidebar note...comparing a native 1080p Netflix show on both the plasma and the 940, the plasma colors are more pleasing to our eyes, hence the increased color settings on the 940e.

Anywho, I believe those settings should be good for most people (color aside). I have an ATV4K, and it doesn’t handle 24p frames well - skipped frame and/or voice lags behind video With those TV settings I’ve posted, I don’t have any issue

Look at rtings.com. All the information is there and you can do a comparison between both TVs.

I'm looking forward to your 940e vs 77" oled comparison.

At this point if I ever had to replace my 940e I have only one alternative.

These are just my opinions.

Currently have a 940E and have on order a 77 A9G that should be in stock hopefully Monday and then shipped. I have done a lot of research over the past few months and hopefully have made the right decision . I just don't know how the PQ could be much better than the 940E but then again I have never seen an OLED other than in reviews as where I live there is nowhere to even look at one.

Having come from OLED to the x940e you'll definitely love the OLED and notice the deeper black/contrast.

The one thing, however, that was obvious to me that I enjoy more on the x940e is the higher nits for HDR. Especially with all the lights off. That's the only thing keeping me from even contemplating any newer TV so far: none of them have made huge leaps in nits worth sacrificing all the other pluses of the x940e (see: Vizio Quantum X and TCL 8 series...they are noticeably brighter but sacrifice a lot compared to the x940e)
