I couldn't find a way to get the football onto my 77" A80j in 4K.Football is available in 4K via iPlayer
Hello everyone. I just bought a Sony A80J and I’m not sure if I received a defective unit. I’m having persistent image retention issues whenever I leave the same screen on for about a minute or so. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this common? Should I be concerned?
Set my 77 up last night.
First impressions are
The 77 doesn't feel as big as I expected coming from a 65, maybe should have considered the 83 !
User interface is slick and easy apart from the Sony application of the euro power warning such a pain but probably won't bother me in a couple of months once I got everything dialled in.
4k hdr pq is sublime, very good indeed.
Motion I'm almost there with so that should be great with a little more tinkering.
In a fairly bright room the brightness is absolutely fine.
I'm.struggling with colours at the moment, I've spent a lot of time tinkering. It's seems heavy on the blue and light on red but confident I will get there. Tried Rtings settings and they were way off for my set.
The worst aspect of the TV is.
The bloody glossy screen, it's like a mirror and far far worse than the zd9 led screen it's replacing. I mean very reflective, would the semi matte versions be better ? I don't know.
I'm.sure I will get more used to it but why anyone would think an oled is great because of the glossy screen is frankly unfathomable to me.
So far very pleased but dialling it in is going to be a challenge as the ootb settings were certainly not acceptable to my eyes. The good news though is that it has a huge array of tweak ability so I will get it sorted. I reckon I'm about 85% there so far.
Not really, its certainly bright enough so far (i should imagine a full white field wont get me squinting like the zed would though, but certainly not an issue- this was my biggest worry and now i have put it to bed ) but the whites are much more blue and not proper white. How much of that i can dial out remains to be seen.Are you craving for that added brightness that your ZD9 offered?

I should have added earlier that having run some basic grey scale slides, dse tests and so forth, this screen is genuinely one of the best i have EVER seen for uniformity. Better than my Zed for sure. I cant see any magenta tint, no bands, no grids and perfect uniform colours on the various colour slides. lovely greys at all % levels and totally even across the entire screen, edge to edge. Thats quite some achievement on a screen of this size (77)
I may have got REALLY lucky there and perhaps thats a pay back from the first A80 arriving with a smashed screen!!!
I recall messing around with the settings on the zed for about 3 months before i was totally happy and it looks like i will have to do the same again with this A84. I dont mind too much as once you get them sorted you dont touch them again for years but for me OOTB was rubbish and some of that perception may be because i was coming from a backlight master drive screen to an oled screen so a certain amount of change is going to occur whether i like it or not.
I am very confident i will get it to exactly where i want it and so far some of the imaging is superb.
Just watched some Sky F1 in UHD and its stunning even if the colour isnt quite sorted yet.
Still messing with motion on the apps especially YouTube......not quite there with that yet either
But happy days and quite impressed
