</div>
<br>
From Sony's website:<br><br>
Some Sony® 3D TVs do not support streaming videos from the installed Netflix app in 3D. This is because Netflix 3D videos use the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) format that is not supported on some of the models. 3D videos available from other 3D streaming content providers using Side by Side (SbS) or Top and Bottom (TaB) formats are supported.<br><br>
The Sony KDL-50R550A, KDL-60R520A, KDL-60R550A, KDL-60R551A, KDL-70R520A, KDL-70R550A, and KDL-70R551A TV models support 3D streaming from Netflix.

<p>Hi all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>New to the forums. I'm about to pull the trigger on a 65W850A.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Was curious as to how I'm able to tell what the manufacturing date is on this TV?? Is it somewhere on the Box? Indicated by a code somewhere?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Was gonna pick it up at a local Best Buy. He said they received the unit around the middle of March at their store... Not sure if that relates to when it was actually manufactured.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any help would be greatly appreciated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, if WhiteSands could send me his Settings that would be great!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>

You might ask the seller if their is a way to see the build date before opening the shipping box.<br><br>
The only way I know to tell the manufacture date is by looking on the back metal cover at the small white sticker that shows the manufacturing location, Mexico and will include the build date. Some buying their sets from Sony have had 2014 build dates. Two had build dates from last month maybe from Sony sales. They were two others that bought sets from Best Buy and they had November build dates but their sets worked ok.

You can ask them to look at the build date on the demonstrator. The white tag is on the back side. When facing the set, it would be located on the right rear side. I would consider this set as a used set with lots of playing hours on it. You might call and ask for a Sony Tech at 1+ 800 222-7669. Then ask if the tech if he knows about the Service Menu showing where to look on the menu for the total hours usage including how many times the set has been powered-on.<br><br>
It might be better to pay the extra $450 and get the new set with a newer build date.<br><br>
To open the Service Menu on this set. <b>Start with it turned Off</b>, using the Remote press in sequence,<br><br>
Display<br><br>
5<br><br>
Volume - (minus)<br><br>
Power<br><br>
The service menu should open and if don't turn the set off then try again.<br>

Random question. Did some of you say there is a covering over the sony logo on the front. Reason I ask is that the remote seems to have to be pointed in a pretty specific place to work (the regular remote not the mini Bluetooth remote) I wonder if the part that reads the remote is being covered up?

When I bought mine there was a blueish clear tape cover over that area - I just pulled it off and threw it away and my remote works flawlessly.

I've noticed when I am watching baseball (Yankees) on the Yes Network that when they show an instant replay during the game and then go back to live I get some slight pixelation for just a second and then it clears right up and the screen is sharp again. Happens every time they go from replay to live. My cable provider is Time Warner. I'm hoping it's not an issue on my TV but just the cable feed. Any thoughts?

I don't think the build date would impact PQ. My build date is 09-2013 and the PQ is excellent. I did notice a burn-in period of 1-2 weeks that the PQ improved significantly.<br><br>
As for floor model, I would not buy it. There was a disccusion on this very topic a few weeks ago here.

I read somewhere that TV calibration tools come with an utility to flip the pixels. I tried to google but failed to find any information on this topic.<br>
Can someone please help?

Try this through the TV's Youtube app:<br><br>
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62d17RtgVU8" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62d17RtgVU8</a><br><br>
or download it with something like 4K downloader and put it on a flashdrive.<br>
<a href="http://www.4kdownload.com/" target="_blank">http://www.4kdownload.com/</a><br><br>
There are a bunch of other similar tools on Youtube.

Never trust the instant replays. During the pro football season they show lots or replays of action plays where you can see pixelation and motion blurs. When they go back live the game, then is great with no problems. The problem is definitely from the network and not your TV.
