I'm thinking of buying the UK model of this TV (55XG9505) to supercede my 2014 Samsung HU7500 4k TV. Can I ask owners to please confirm the following for me (UK store salesmen have no clue and don't even offer me a remote to try with the display TV)
1. I believe this TV does not have any adjustment for audio sync (whereas my other TV's do). How does this TV perform with movies playing from an external USB drive, blu-ray player and satellite box regarding a perfect audio/video sync?
2. With my current Samsung 55HU7500 4k TV (2014) I am constantly swapping between two motion modes - "clear" for soaps and sports, and "custom, with de-blur on +10, de-judder on +10" for 1080i satellite broadcast TV and Blu-ray (24fps). I'm one of the few people that actually like the smooth soap opera effect and hate any kind of judder, stutter, or flickering screen with black frame insertion and so on. I'd be purchasing this 2019 Sony TV in the hope that I can leave its motion control on one setting for everything to get an always smooth picture whatever the source. I'll soon be upgrading my satellite TV box (Sky UK) for their new Q box which can be set to output all SD/HD channels in 4k UHD so I presume this is the way to go to get the most pleasing picture. I would have gone the OLED route by I tend to leave Sky News or CNN on in the background and my last plasma has the CNN logo burned in for every channel, so once bitten....
3. Is there a way to level or normalise (limit) the sound from the TV's digital output so that commercials don't play at twice the volume?
I have never been happy with auto-dimming on my Samsung as it dims white writing on a black screen, and I never watch TV in a darkened room so I doubt if I'll even have auto-dimming turned on on my new Sony TV. And I assume the picture is at least as bright as on my current 2014 Samsung for when I'm viewing in a very sunlit room.
Thanks for your advice!
