Anyone here tried the Dolby Vision gaming through the Xbox Series X? if so how is the input lag as the A80J doesn't have Dolby Vision Game Mode.
I have to agree on mirror gloss finish, it is something I'm still learning to live with.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.
Really bad, al least 10x compared to the lag in gaming mode.Anyone here tried the Dolby Vision gaming through the Xbox Series X? if so how is the input lag as the A80J doesn't have Dolby Vision Game Mode.
As an 77A80J owner, I made an official complaint about UK catchup apps (iPlayer etc) missing, unfortunately no lead time on implementation..Any sign of iPlayer being added? I can use via Sky Q short-term but it's very slow by comparison and doesn't do UHD. A8h has a firmware update today - wondered if the A80J was getting one that might address this?
Are there any other downsides like this. The price reduction has really made me want to push the buy button now
You can side load iPlayer etc though right? Does that allow UHD to work?As an 77A80J owner, I made an official complaint about UK catchup apps (iPlayer etc) missing, unfortunately no lead time on implementation..
Thank you for contacting Sony support.
In reference to your enquiry about your Sony XR-77A80J, We're sorry you're disappointed by the absence of the BBC app catch up TV apps.
We hope you can understand that this is a temporary situation, but one that is currently beyond our control and very much in the hands of 3rd party service providers.
Remember, your TV is ready for these applications once the situation moves forward.
Still, we're here to help you as much as possible. You can still enjoy the catch-up TV content by using your mobile device to cast content to your Sony TV until the app situation is resolved.
Sony has confirmed it is working. This way, you can enjoy BBC content until the app situation is resolved. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.
I have read iPlayer can be side loaded, I personally have it loaded into Kodi, which has eliminated the stuttering issue, but no UHD. They have to sort it sooner than later to avoid too many unhappy customers, potential loss of new sales? Then again, UK is a small customer base on the grand/global scale and they can probably afford to drag it?You can side load iPlayer etc though right? Does that allow UHD to work?
Theoretically, it should dim. The ABL feature is still a thing on these Sony tvs. I say theoretically, because I also have an AF8 and I've never noticed any dimming, so it's always been a bit of a grey area for me personally.Thanks but it's specifically whether or not it dims the screen when there's a fixed scoreboard on screen?
