firewire can be used with a HD cable box and a D VHS recorder


and if you think it has the Super Fine Pitch tube, order it, no one here is trying to stop you


but you should know you are putting your money on the CS agents that claim all XBRs have "SFP", and this is not true


only in CRTs and only for two generations 910 and 960


furthermore I am sure what you gain by continuously posting this misinformation over and over

whether you can accept it or not, its misinformation

and as long as you do that its misinformation rather than a good laugh at the expense of the Sony representatives

Im onlyl guilty of what i have been told by sony so if they are lying than thats their fault not mine, And the thing i posted on #48 is indeed what the email said from sony style the exact wording was: According to the product specialist all XBR's have the SFP. Since the KD-34XBR970 is a pre-sale item the specs pdf has not been released yet which explains the absence for the website.


Thank you for choosing Sony Style!

So how could i be giving misinformation when that is what sony told me? Then you will have to call them misinformants because it them who told me this.

Ok, i officially made a fool of myself, i called the sony style phone number and the guy told me the 970 will not have the SFP so obviously one sony rep has a different story than another so i wish i would have never reported anything. lol

motorhead,


it's obvious people here are not inclined to believe you. if you have an incident # or case # from your sony style email - post it here. then one of us can call sony and say that they got this email, with this case #. (i'd be happy to make that call, but it would probably be better if it was someone like greenland or someone who flat-out doesn't believe you.)


so, give us the case/incident number, so we can call sony and find out what's what. if you don't have that number, then you're not to be believed.

Do not take it so personally, you thought you had valid information and that's what you went with. The only fault was that people were trying to say don't believe everything a CSR tells you, for a lot of reasons, let's wait and se what's real, but you didn't want to believe it. I promise, if you call again in several days you might get a different answer again. Sad, but that's the way it works.

Yeah when i talked to the last csr at sony that told me it does not have it, i asked him why and he said it was because that way they can sell a "high" end tv at an affordable price point for consumers. LOL

yep, so there it is, no super fine pitch. Why will sony leave it out in their press release? If they were going to have superfine pitch later on. Thats because the cost and reliability issue associated with the superfine tube. There were many problems with the sony sfp technology. Sony decided to stop the research and development of fine tuning this technology. From reading the press release sony mention a new line in their xbr series: non super fine pitch. that means no sfp.

Sony's New XBR HDTV


Leading this year's direct-view lineup is the 34-inch 16:9 KD-34XBR970 model with top-of-the-line performance features and advanced picture technologies.

Additionally, the set offers an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and two component inputs for connecting other devices, such as an high-definition cable or satellite tuner and a DVD player.

where does it say non super fine pitch

not that I think it includes it, but it does not say those words

The XS will soldier on as is or will it be discontinued?

not sure about the XS, but I believe that Sony will continue with some version of the 960 at a price point below current. The reason I say that is

(1) I purchased mine 2 weeks ago from local Sony Authorized dealer ...so I think retail from Sony may drop again

(2) and because of statement in press release:

"There's still plenty of consumer demand for direct-view televisions,''said Tom Evans, vice president of television marketing for Sony Electronics. "They provide people looking to step-up to HD television a great value and for others satisfied with standard definition, an attractive price and solid performance."


I don't believe that a $xxx set will top the line for Sony


(All my opinion and nothing I can support with facts)

If they don't bother to mention it anywhere, it's probably not a feature.

waltchan asking someone else for proof? That's kind of like Madonna asking someone if they've been checked for STDs, isn't it?
