Advantage in updating firmware datingcash
Please let me sony.com/op.../source_tv.shtml (site with updates) well i am not sure how and what this is y i posted it online..in australia disable epg on all sony bravias because of some legal media c***...anyway it is just the software that is preventing it on the tv..i was wondering has anyone out there managed to update their tv with new software?
hey iroquois I was trying to create a post there @ dtvforum about this problem but was not able to insert new topic not sure..though i am a member there too...i did read somewhere on that forum about sony's restriction in firmware for epg in oz...however since they offer firmware on the website I wonder what really prevents you running an american firmware that has no restrictions on epg...a thought...i also think that firmware is not hard to install however i am scared doing it...
I rang Sony again today to ask what with "Freeview" coming out, will there be a firmware upgrade available for my KDL40X3100 (9 months old) to support it. ) I have a bravia 2years old, ever since new has lost sound requiring turn off turn on again, reported to Harvey Ns and told dont worry its local Bundaberg shithouse tv signal anyhow yourcovered by extended warranty.
The answer was a solid "NO, there will _NEVER_ be firmware upgrades for TV's." Which sotra makes no sense seeing as they are posted in the link above.... Not so lately now loosing channels which requires total re-scan, contact extended warranty people and told its a software problem so not covered by warranty, contact Sony, yes some of the Bravias have a software problem or fault from new, where do I go from here?
There only seems to be one way to get your firmware updated, and that's if there's a legitimate problem with it and you can convince Sony Support to send someone out to update it.
I know this because the Zs, maybe just the 5500s, have massive input lag (tested it at 81ms in 'general', or 60ms in 'game' mode, was 6ms on my old KDL32V4000) if you get firmware before 1.5xx, and over the course of 6 hours I was finally able to convince them it was a firmware issue.
