I am having some trouble with the ARC..
The TV and my Denon recognise each other (HDMI 3 / ARC), turns on, switches inputs, volume etc but there is no sound?
Any ideas?
Thanks bros

Try restart the tv (app) and see how. I am using yammy sound bar and avr for my tvs connected to ARC. All control function works under ARC. You can try also try to resync the arc connection again.

My my, the colors are rather impressive, even if I just use the copied settings..
You do get some of the usual LCD/LED issues but the uniformity is as good as it goes for this technology..
The pop factor is something else..
Will try the 3D glasses soon..
I don't see an option for 2D-3D conversion, unlike my old plasma, nor does it have an option to make 3D into 2D?

Some notes:
No 2D to 3D conversion and vice versa.. active glasses, the 500 series works better. Pop factor pretty good..


It's early days with my new 75", but the colors are very impressive indeed!

Nice Sony review. It seems that locally, they have provided us with a better remote with real buttons..

i checked out Z9D and X9000F at courts, I find the black not as deep black as the LG C8 or Sony A1. X9000F 85" is a beast. a display set of Z9D is really attractive because of the price but come from a 100", hope to get at least 85" if switch back to TV. Gosh.. when I can wait OLED to drop price.. ha ha.
