This firmware seems to get buggier with every release... What makes you think the next one will be better... Sony obviously does NOT properly test it's software when adding fix's and forgets that changes that may correct one bug may creat another. Very disapointing that they do not verify the complete package prior to the update re;lease and seem to use it's customers instead like beta testers!!! Prior to the Dolby VIsion enableing update, I had ZERO sound related issues with my sound bar but since that release and evdery update since my sound bar shuts off on its own ramdomly. Also I did not do the update to version 9 but with the last month, my sound bar seems to get lost with unsupported audio msg and wont shut off half the time automatically. Weird bit it seems like some of the sound related new issues have been installed. I wonder if some of the Installed Apps recently manually updated have caused this.. Sony Firmware engineering dept needs to be better at their jobs... May be Sony top management preventing them the time required to properly test it the real issue... That equates to budget limitations which ultimately creat way more dept spending in the long run. Sucks for us and the engineers that are made to look bad..... I'm trying to cut them some slack.... Maybe they just are weak & should be replaced... Only Sony really knows for sure!!!Every day I check for an update to this tv on Sony's website and every day I'm disappointed. I get all the bugs. Firmware glitch on boot up, no sound for 5-10 seconds after start up of tv when navigating the ui and then all of a sudden it comes in way louder than it should, random tv turn ons, in vlc my external hd has started recognizing it as multiple different names instead of easystore(default name) the longer I go without a reboot, and most of the time I can't even get the sony media app to recognize it's connected now. This never happened until this current firmware.
