Turning on Full Pixel in the Screen sub menu after going into Picture & Display, will make broadcast 1080i look fantastic. Overscan is eliminated, basically resizing the picture to fit the display. CNN, football, and hockey look great without any pauses in the video.

I use a Monoprice cable, which doubtfully made a difference, but I also have clearness and smoothness set to 1 in the Motion submenu along with cinemotion set to high (still playing with that submenu).
If we watch 1080 content, we set the Display Area to 'Full Pixel'. And if we watch true 4K, we have to change the setting back from 'Full Pixel' to 'Normal' ? Or we permanently leave the setting to 'Full Pixel' ?

Oh
My
God

Just set up my 65 900f. Incredible picture right out of the box. I can't wait to read through more of these posts and play with the settings. I'm almost embarrassed to say I haven't visited these forums since about 2007 when I purchased my 42" Panasonic PX80... which still works! But glad I decided to retire it.

I was at Best buy yesterday with no intent to buy a TV. I wast just browsing when I bumped into a very good salesman/kid. I asked him what was the best deal in the house and he walked me to this set. I'm not one to make decisions without research, but the kid, the picture, the size, and the price sucked me in.

Watching this screen today makes me happy I waited so long! I'm glad I made this decision. Merry Christmas to me. 😁

What's funny is I still have not seen this set in person and I have it coming in this Saturday. I did all my research online and decided I didn't want to go into the store and look at all these other displays and start second guessing my decision. I am actually going to BB today to pick up an order and I am going to walk over to the TV's and take a look at what I just bought. LOL.

Great and can you tell me how bad it is to get rid of all the ads on the Sony 900F? I've also read that android can be a mess to operate through. I only want to watch TV and DVDs, NetFlix, Amazon. No games.

Ads? Where are you seeing ads on your 900F?


If you are referring to the Sony Shelf and Recommendations, you can disable them. Side effect is it will improve the responsiveness of AndroidTV.



Below is a link that describes in detail how to disable them:

Why would you need to upgrade the HDMI cables, are you talking about going to HDMI 2?

Hey all I have a question. I sit about 11 feet away from my t.v. I was originally going to get 65inch 900f but do you think it's worth an extra $1200 for the 75inch. Thanks much

I sit 10 feet from the screen and I went with the 65. Looks huge to me - but then, my previous set was an old 42". <grin> I'd bet most most people here would say get the biggest that your wallet and wall can handle.

I haven't noticed any ads. There are a lot of tiles for recommend apps to download, but I haven't really messed with them yet, although I did set up espn and Amazon prime. I stream most of my viewing from an external Android 4K box.

I had a 65” I bought in 2015 at 10.5ft away and after I had it for a while and got used to it, it seemed to have shrunk lol. Now I’ve got the 75” 900F at the same distance. I’d say if you can afford it and don’t want to regret not going bigger to go with the 75”.

After having mine for several months I feel confident in saying that even the 85” wouldn’t feel too big at 10.5ft away.

Use your best judgment and go from there. I’d say it’s worth it to spend the extra money now if you don’t frequently upgrade your TV and plan on keeping it for a long time. Unless you want to save the money for something else. I don’t regret not buying the 85” because the jump up to me wasn’t worth the extra premium cost. Plus in 7-10 years when I buy another, I anticipate 85”+ being more affordable than they are now.

does anyone have any suggestions for cleaning the screen on this TV?


i tried to get a fingerprint off with a microfiber cloth and a little bit of distilled water and it left big smudge marks that i can't seem to get off--i dont want to press to hard on the panel. does anyone else have this problem? i can't see the smudges while the TV is on, but it's clearly visable with the TV off and especially if i shine light on the spot where they are.

You will regret not getting a 75”. We sit at 10 ft replaced a 65” Panny plasma with a 75”. I would DEFINITELY not go back to a 65”. But only if you can afford it.Think about the cost over time you will use it.

From the specs I read it looks like all 4 HDMI ports are the same besides the one labeled ARC. Just want to double check that as I thought I read somewhere that only two (2&3) were high bandwidth. Since I’m going to be using an optical cable out to my sound bar and hooking up an Apple TV, HDR Blueray player and PS4 non-pro I just want to be sure before I mount it on the wall. From what I read, and correct me if I’m wrong, but the high bandwidth would only be an issue for 4K 60hz on the PS4.

I was really hoping Sony would release a firmware update to enable eARC but I'm guessing not at this point. Hopefully the "900G" or whatever comes next will have it....

Fun question, what should be my first 4K HDR movie I watch on my TV Saturday that will showcase it best? I read Interstellar or even Avengers Infiniti War are good.

I sit 7 feet away and ordered an 85 inch 900F. Should arrive this Saturday and realize the madness!

I too have ordered the 85 900F and I am looking for similar information. I ve just recently returned to the forum and I admit to being a bit lost. I’ve got a week yet before installation.

Should I buy new HDMI cables and if so what am I looking for? I’ll invest high end if it matters.

My plan is to hook up 4K Apple TV, a direct tv Receiver/DVR, a non 4K Blu-ray player, and possibly a cheaper sound bar. Which ones should go in HDMI 2-3 if they are higher bandwidth? I assume I can use optical cable or hdmi to connect the sound bar? Should I put another TV connected HDMI in the wall for a PS4? We usually use it another room, not a pro.

opinion on mounting an 85? How high off ground should the low edge be? be watching from 12-13 on the couch. Just a fixed mount or would other options be worth it ?

can anyone recommend a budget type sound bar/system? I know nothing about them but Looking for something to improve my new set up. Watch a ton of sports, network tv at night, rare movies.

Is there a location in this forum that summarizes manipulating settings for best picture? Realizing people have different preferences on color/ brightness etc but have read some good info that is still a bit confusing for now.

Thank you much. Appreciate the help here.

panfan7;

I picked up some Monoprice HDMI cables for this set. I posted the links a couple pages back. I’ve been happy with their stuff and never had any issues.

As for a sound bar I have a 5.1 Vizio with satellite speakers and a sub I got at Costco. It’s not going to blow you away but it’s decent. Just doesn’t come with a lot of features or options for connecting to the TV.

Only HDMI 2 and 3 are high-bandwidth and that's only when HDMI signal format in the settings is changed to "Enhanced".

Use a microfiber cloth, softest one you can find, and mix up some water and a drop or two of dish soap like Dawn. That's what I do and it work really well in removing oily finger prints from our screens.

My apologies if this has already been covered. I’m receiving my 65” 900F this afternoon. I researched various recommended settings and found a few that are from reputable sources, namely CNET, RTNGS.com, and Sound & Vision. While all 3 agree on most settings, there are some significant differences between them as well.

Just wondering if there is a consensus on this forum as to which settings are the best to go by. I realize that certain settings are personal preference but I just want a good starting point to work from.

Thanks!

For years I've use a product called Purosol, along with a microfiber cloth, to clean TV screens. I used to let the Best Buy delivery guys set up my new TVs. They would always leave greasy fingerprints all over the set! Purosol safely removed them (the fingerprints, not the delivery guys). It's easy to find Purosol for sale online.

While all 3 agree on most settings, there are some significant differences between them as well.

Just wondering if there is a consensus on this forum as to which settings are the best to go by. I realize that certain settings are personal preference but I just want a good starting point to work from.

Thanks!
Everyone has different preferences for what they want their pic to look like. Some want POP, some want natural. Some even like ..ugh... Soap opera.
