    I'm gonna die mine up tonight. I haven't used it in months

    Let me know how it goes.

    I've never had any long term luck with Sony. That's why I ended up with the Samsung TV.

    That sucks Jack! I've been working a bunch lately, so I haven't played around with it much, but did watch a bluray with the grandson yesterday without any problems.

    The player its self started working right away after a simple unplugging of the cord. I have a Roku and also built in apps on my TV so really it's no big deal. I just liked using the players interface the most.

    Did you try the button "show all apps"? Maybe they are still on there, but you need to re-add them to the home screen.

    Yes I did. Crazy isn't it.

    So did the apps show up in the sub menu?
     
  9. Dentman

    Dentman Well-Known Member

    No, they are no where to be found. Hitting the add app section brings you to a blank page.

    That is very strange. Hope it's an isolated incident, as Netflix looks the best when played through this player.

    Suggestion: perhaps re-installing the latest firmware via USB might help.

    Here's the link to the Sony site to download it, and installation instructions.

    If the player has the latest firmware (which dates from 2017 September 26) it might reject an attempt to load that same version. But then again it might proceed and overwrite with what's on the USB stick. (Surely any designer worth his salt would have allowed for this possibility!) No harm in trying. You just might get everything back.

    Yes it does. Not to mention I'm much more likely to get Dolby digital surround via the player then through Roku.
     
  13. Dentman

    Dentman Well-Known Member

    Thanks Jeff. That's most likely the best bet.

    I would love to see a shootout between this Sony and the NVidia Shield TV for streaming picture and sound quality.

    I'm looking forward to trying the TV's built in apps and seeing the difference. Just have to get off my ass and hook up the audio.

    My apps are back....go figure.

    It must run on MS Windows. Windows is known to do stupid stuff like that.

    Is the X80 the same as the X800?
     
  19. JeffMackwood

    JeffMackwood Maxi-Me

    Massdrop claims it is.

    Hmmm. Walmart says same but identifies it as discontinued. I may just go X800 to be safe.
