Unfortunately, it's not really any more use, unless you just play games, as you need digital 1:1 mapping for 50Hz. (I'm not aware of any new display that will accept 50Hz over VGA, even though it is technically possible. (been using it on an old 17" Monitor recently)ahin4114 said:For me the best enhancement for the new V series is the fact that it's supposed to accept native res. so anybody out there looking to do 1:1 pixel mapping through a scaler will now be able to do it. HTPC bods should also find a dedicated PC input a useful addition - even if it isn't DVI.
Interesting, have they changed the remote? Maybe they'll give us Discreet Input Selection this time? The foreign models have that as part of the WEGA GATE menu, and having to cycle through inputs (even when nothing is plugged into them) is one of the few design faults I can find with the Sony LCDs.To round things off, every function is accessible using the ergonomically refined remote commander, which features enlarged frequent-use keys and relatively low key count for maximum ease of use.
I have the v32A12u. You can press the OK button in the remote and it brings up a menu for you to select the Input you want. Is this what you mean?Lyris said:Interesting, have they changed the remote?

Does anyone know of a way of setting the Harmony so that when you select an activity such as "Watch DVD", it can switch the V40 to the HDMI input (AV 5)?
If the new handset for the new model can do it, surely it must be implementable for existing users (using an aftermarket remote) - even if it means a trip into the service menus.
Cheers for that - I'll have a fiddle about with the Activity setup again and the Help function. The only AV inputs available from the Harmony setup menu are AV1, RGB, AV2, YC2, AV3 & YC3, so I presume one of these maps onto AV5 (HDMI).mountfords said:hmmm... slightly confused by this as my V40 and Harmony 525 do this no problems. Although there is only an up/down control on the Sony remote, the harmony software lists specific inputs - they need translating as they don't directly correspond but it certainly works on mine.
I think there are countries in Europe where this already applies.Lyris said:So in Japan they get a 2 year warranty now, because the panels are apparently more reliable? Maybe Sony of Europe will give us the same? ....nah.
