Both good TV's. I do like the look of the Panasonic but for me the picture on the Sony just wins it for me.

Not to sure where you stand with refurbished goods though and whether it changes your rights.
I don’t really worry to much about tv warranties to be honest as your covered under statutory law. Ive had TVs where I’ve had fixed or replaced after 4years.

Lol at the cable assumptions, pass the popcorn ?

Can a more practical note, can anyone tell me if these boxes have TUN.KO module built in and any newer ROMs available with it built in for enablng VPN and what are they like to flash ?
Is flashing fairly straighforward to manage, i.e are there any reset switches for enabling Maskrom/flash does anyone know?
On my old 903 device you had to short pins 8 and 9, possible but fiddly.

Looks like no built in SD, my old stick had a built in microSD which would be handy as I now have an unused 32Gb so might not be the one for me.
If I email you an image using poor quality cabling in my house. Will the image be poor quality when you receive it and open it? No.

If the email arrives in your mailbox, the quality of the photo will remain in its original state.

If my cables in my house are that bad, you simply won’t receive the email.

This is how HDMI works, you’re not sending a stream of video down the cable, there are no varying qualities.

HDMI is sending DATA down the cable, so if it arrives at your telly, it will be presented in its original state. If the cable is really bad, it simply won’t reach the TV at all.
any ideas why the audio is not working straight out of the box? what about firmware updates?

Just a word of warning for anyone wanting to use it as a Plex media …Just a word of warning for anyone wanting to use it as a Plex media server. Plex will only use the internal 16GB storage for the meta data and config files which may be pushing the limits if you have large media libraries. The 500GB version is the better choice if it's for PMS.


This will only affect you if you have an EXTREMELY large media library and have the thumbnails feature turned on.

For example I have about 6TB of media (mix of TV shows and movies) and my plex app takes up about 5gb internal storage at the most.

And that's with thumbnails turned on.

Not sure why a year ago S905 was ok but not now? If streaming media it was ok last year and is still ok today. If you needed a more powerful GPU (which is the main advantage of the S912) then last year or this the S905 wouldn't cut it.If all you plan on is using it as a streaming box then spending twice as much on a S912 3/4gb is a waste of money. If gaming is going to be a daily usage then you would be better off spending the extra on a shield TV box.The challenge always is finding a box with good firmware. Irrespective of the box specs if the firmware is garbage then your user experience will be rubbish.


DDR4 and Android 7.1.2 are coming together only on those boxes mentioned by me, as far as I know. Btw, if you plan to stream TV only, any cheap piece of shit iis good. I am talking about streaming, downloading, playing games, streaming games from your PC, social media, overall PC like experience on a TV box. 99% of people have no idea what Android TV boxes can do.

Can't uninstall Leanbak Launcher on my TV, I can only uninstall the updates. Which is pretty standard for a system file. Unless I am looking at the wrong file?
If that is the case then I would need to root my TV. I'm really not happy with doing that. I do it all the time for my phones but paradoxically there are security update advantages for doing that. Not sure that applies to my TV.

@D_Jay_M It looks like it is not possible to make another launcher the default anymore. This goes back to my original comments about issues. It looks like the ADB command has been blocked by recent updates, even for older Android devices. Without the ADB shell command, you can install any launcher you want, but it doesn't start automatically.

A lot of us made the effort to identify games consoles by weight, size and feel and send them to High Value where they are treated better and are subject to additional tracking and can't be easily stolen. Still, it will have been thrown at least once whilst in transit... Seriously. The depots at which I worked the focus was ALWAYS on cutting staffing to the absolute minimum.

EndlessWaves21 h, 22 m ago

HDR is forwards looking rewrite of some of the picture standards, allowing …HDR is forwards looking rewrite of some of the picture standards, allowing content to use colours and brightness levels beyond what any TV can produce at the moment. If you want 'true' HDR then come back in ten or twenty years time.Right now the further up the range you go the more of the improvements you'll see. A bottom of the range 'HDR' TV includes support for the new picture formats but only reproduces them using the same old capabilities.At the level of this model you're starting to see the first bits of hardware that have no use in non-HDR content, in this case a wider colour gamut. It's relatively minor, but a decent value added feature to tempt people to go for this model instead of the next one down.Anyone wanting significant HDR improvements needs to be looking further up the range though, it's currently an expensive technology on the display side. At sub-£500 I wouldn't worry about HDR, focus on general picture quality.

Thanks mate! This was very helpful!

It's IPS, so compared to a VA panel has poor black levels, but excellent viewing angles. If your main usage is watching movies then get something with a VA panel, but this is a decent choice for gaming or standard TV watching.

It's also worth reading up on the Android TV OS, as it has some performance issues on these Sony sets and isn't for everyone.

I presume these wouldn't work on the FireTV?

I'm willing to bet it'll be a slideshow if it even runs on the stick, maybe the box could handle it?

Same, although have no recollection of buying them, 10 p deals of the week i guess.

Cheers, I tried two games (both which said game pad supported) crossy road and pacman, neither worked. Then I tried another three random games and they're fine. It's for the bairns so I'll probably just put an emulator on for them.

Thanks again

Quick q is does the firestick handle the power load ok with the additional bits connected or will it suffer from overheating issues. will a powered usb hub help here?



The referenced OTG cable when used with the FSs standard PSU should be OK to simultaneously power USB keyboard / mice / LAN adapters which can all be regarded as low power consumption. If using with a portable disk drive (mechanical or SSD) it would be wise to introduce an external PSU for the accessories.

I must have missed that comment - it's "2.4GHz wireless", uses a USB dongle - not Bluetooth, not sure what's given you that idea?
