If you notice skin tones are pushing red I found the Rtings settings solved that problem. Most have bumped the brightness to taste.
Thanks for replying. Other opinions are welcome -- are the Rtings settings well liked by most (and then adjusting brightness to taste)? Many thanks again!

There are really good setting here to try. You can use Cinema Pro/Expert 1 and Cinema Home/Expert 2 for different settings and go between the 2 to see which you like best.

I bought 4K UHD of "Magical Beast and where to find them The crimes of Grindelwald" and it looked absolutely awesome on my X900F.

Definitely worth adding to any 4K collection!!

Should I have my Blu Ray/4k player go directly into my Denon receiver via HDMI and then from the receiver into either input 2 or 3 on the 900F. And then have my Mediacom cable (essentially same as Comcast) go from the cable box to the TV and then sound from the TV to the Denon --- or does the Mediacom signal also go right into the Denon then then to the TV -- or (lastly) does it go from the cable box to the TV (for picture) AND from the cable box to the Denon (for sound) -- I should know, but I don't -- what is the BEST way to do all this? Thanks!

Does your Denon passthrough 4k HDR? If so..

1. Plug your blu ray/4k player into your receiver.
2. Plug your receiver into the tv’s hdmi arc port (I believe it’s hdmi 3)
3. Make sure you have hdmi 2 and 3 set to enhanced on the tv itself. This is found in the settings on the home menu.
4. I plug my cable box into my tv instead of my receiver because my cable box does not do cec. By going through the tv I still get full surround as well as being able to use my cable remote to switch inputs between all my sources. You can plug it into the receiver if you’d like. Maybe your box does cec.

If your receiver does not passthrough 4k HDR:

1. Plug your receiver into hdmi arc port (again, hdmi 3 I believe).
2. Make sure you have hdmi 2 and 3 set to enhanced on the tv itself. This is found in the settings on the home menu.
3. Plug 4k player into hdmi 2 on tv as this is the only other hdmi port that is enhanced.
4. Plug cable box into hdmi 1 or 4 on tv.

Hdmi arc will handle the audio for anything plugged directly into the tv as long as the receiver is plugged into the arc port.

I’d suggest premium certified 18gbps hdmi cables for 4k hdr.

***Understood. Can you buy "flatter" HDMI cables to make them easier to plug in? Blue Jeans makes nice products but the thickness of their HDMI cables can be a problem. I know you'd have to replace two cables (another obstacle - if they are already in the wall) - but that might be an easier solution.

Or - - do you have any skinny, long armed friends that can reach back there with your help - - shining the light, so to speak? In honor of the NCAA Mens Basketball tournaments this week - - how about a skinny, 7 foot center with thin, long arms? Do you have a college close to you? $25 bucks to plug in my cables.

My advice...never go looking for issues!

There is no perfect panel, so if one looks hard enough they will undoubtedly find flaws.

They are in the wall. Finally managed to connect them. Lesson learned! Would have been easier even the inputs were facing out rather than down.

Just took delivery on a 900F and very happy with it. I was hoping someone could help me with an issue prior to wall mounting.

I thought I had read that the power cord was detachable. I was planning to just get a longer one so that I didn't need to install a new outlet. But now that I take a look at it, it's not a detachable cord (65"). So here's my dilemma: The wall Im mounting it on is slighly larger than the width of my fireplace, and my plan was to just run the cables (in a cable sheath the same color as the wall) along the side and back toward the available outlet. Im just not crazy about putting holes/outlets in this wall since I may not want the tv to always be mounted here.

Anyway, what would the best option be to get a long cord run here? Is it safe to just use a proper extension cord? I need about a 12' run to do what Im wanting to do. Any feedback is appreciated.

I just wanted to mention this, in case anyone else encounters this. I have a 55” Sony HDR900f and a Pioneer AVR LX103 (with 4K passthru) connected from the AVR ARC to Sony ARC3 with an HDMI 18gb certified w/Ethernet cable. My Directv Reciever (HR24), Appletv 4K and Sony Blu-ray player are connected to the inputs on the Pioneer AVR with same type cable. I turned on Enhanced HDR in the Setting>External Input>HDMI Format on the Sony 900f. I had no problems with audio/video when viewing something thru the Appletv or the Blu-ray but when selecting Directv input (from the AVR) I got picture but no sound. I had to change the Sony 900f External Input setting back to SDR not Enhanced in order to hear sound again on directv. I can change back to Enhanced for viewing the Appletv or Blu-ray but usually don’t unless I know it’s 4K (and I don’t have internet speed for that so limited to a disk for the Blu-ray)

I used a thick extension cord in the wall. It wasn’t feasible to put a box there so my electrician used a thick extension cord after cutting 2 holes.

FYI - I hadn’t watched Netflix in a while after the Oreo update and when first watching “Triple Frontier,” DV came up but not Dolby Atmos. The internal apps menu can be funky in that sometimes I get the full screen menu and other times I get a smaller menu screen to the right of my TV. Many times, DV is accompanied by a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.

So last night, I couldn’t get Netflix to run. I ended up doing a “force stop” and then starting Netflix again. It worked and Dolby Atmos appeared as the soundtrack and was reflected on my AVR. While it is compressed Atmos via ARC, it’s still great and very noticeable. Another benefit of the internal apps even though the Android interface can be kludgy.

I am having s problem with Direct TV and hope someone may be able to help. When I go to a Direct TV 4K channel I get a message saying "your TV does not support 4K" He TV is a Sony 900f 85 and I have to go into the Direct box menu, settings, display, resolution and check the 4K box and it works, but next time I go to their 4k channels I have the same problem.
Direct TV has changed the box , which didn't help, and now claim it.s a software problem that they are working on.
If you have a solution to this problem i would certainly appreciate your help.

I'm trying to set black adjust and adv. contrast enhancer to MEDIUM.
It seems help the black levels in HDR.
Only thing is that i must set it to medium and off every time i play in HDR because in SDR It remains to Medium and i prefer to leave them off in SDR.

That's great feedback. I have found on several occasions that some of the internal apps will not launch; they get stuck at the launch screen for example. So those times I would do a force stop. I only wish there was a quicker way to get to a force stop for an app such as a long press on the app button or something? For as often as it can be necessary it would be nice to have a shortcut.

Your intolerance will not be tolerated!

Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.

***The "Long Press" option used to be available but not after the latest update. As I said in my post - - the smaller menu I occasionally get always gives me a couple options and one of them is "force stop." I think if that menu comes up again, I'll just ensure that whatever I'm going to stream - - I force stop anything if it's running - - which I can't really tell!

If you have a solution to this problem i would certainly appreciate your help.
I have a 75 inch X900f and it works fine with the Direct TV 4k box. Only had set it once on the TV box.

I'm still on OS 7.0 and I have tried the long press and it didn't seem to register from what I could tell. Perhaps it used to exist in the original OS 6.0? Bummer to have removed that if so.

Your intolerance will not be tolerated!

Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.

Hi all,

I've had the 55" X900F since December and loving it, using mostly with the X800 4k player.

So today, I purchased a PS4 Pro and was wondering if there is a certain setting I can use for both movies and gaming? It'd be a pain having to always switch them back and forth.

If not, is there a certain setting that works perfect with the PS4 Pro? Thanks in advance

Is there anyway to see the details of the current display/signal/image other than just resolution eg colour space (eg rec.709/2020) and chroma sampling (eg 4:2:0 / 4:2:2)? Thanks

Sorry if this has been discussed - I tried a search and "ARC" is too short to bring anything up. Have the ARC issues been resolved somehow? I updated to Oreo a couple months ago and ever since I have random ARC issues, where the sound won't properly output to my AVR. It doesn't happen every time, but does happen a lot. I'd guess maybe 40-50% of the time. The TV never shows the "Switching to external speakers" message when this happens. A restart of both TV and AVR fixes it but sometimes it takes multiple restarts.



My AVR is a Sony STR-DN1050. Everything worked fine before the update. I'm actually considering doing a factory reset on the TV to go back to the prior version.
