I recently bought a KDL-46EX653 and I'm having some trouble, Sony's staff won't help me so if you'd be kind enough to help me?
First up is the Motionflow: how do I turn it completely off in this thing? What's the option that completely controls its existance? I have now tried everything, different screen modes like the normal, movie and even gaming, but to no avail. I've tried messing with all the picture settings, film-mode and what-nots, not helping. I've turned everything off from the menus, still some movies look like soap operas.
I mean it's only 100hz Motionflow to begin with, Sony hasn't even felt the need to put a specific button for it in this model, in other models there's a Motionflow option directly. Any ideas?
Second question is related to the Conax modules, CAMs and CI+s, or whatever they're called, but here you need to have one of those hooked up so you can view the premium cable channels. Well I've got a CI+ module in but it keeps loosing touch with the TV, there's no problem the module itself, but the TV refuses to do the whole "Recognizing the host and the module"-process sometimes. This means that I have to go and unplug the thing and put it back so that the TV will finally have to do the process. Anyone else having this problem?
And lastly I'd just like to voice in my slight disappointment at the whole ordeal of getting a new TV. I was happy with my previous Sony TV but time had moved on and I needed a newer, bigger model. So I went for a Sony again, and have had a lot of issues. First it was getting used to the bad quality of the panel, vertical banding is very noticiable when watching sports like football, those bright vertical stripes and smudgyness that follows when the camera pans against a solid colour like a football pitch are a lot to get used to.
If these problems sound like they can only be in my set, please let me know quick! I still have a few days to return this thing for a new one.
