    FINALLY – After a few days of searching, I found your video. I took 10 minutes and followed you step by step. I can now fully control the TV on and off functions using my google Home set up. They layout on my TV was slightly different (2018 XBR-60x830F. You show Day Dream, my TV showed Screen Saver. It opened the same drop down Menu. Thanks for posting.

    Does setting "Simple IP Control" to OFF mean that there is NO IP Control?  Or is there a "Non-Simple IP Control" (i.e., some advanced IP control mode) that gets turned on when Simple is OFF?

    Is there a way to sync the rmf-tx200u to the XBR-65x850c? My remote works except for the voice function. The tv setup only shows the touchpad remote, not voice control setup for the tx200u. Thanks…

    Can I easily cast to this tv from from my phone or other Google Casting app?
    Do I have to be on a "Cast input" first?
    Or can it override whichever input I'm on and simply start casting?
    I want to know because I'd like to get this for my mom who isnt savy enough to switch back and forth between inputs. I'd like to remote into her phone and start playing a movie for her then cast it.

    I have XBR65X850D and XBR43X800D in the same room in my basement mounted on adjacent walls. I use the RVU DirecTV feature on these to connect to my main genie. My problem is when I change the channel on 1 TV it changes it on both. I know these TVs don't have the ability for me to use the RF with my DirecTV remotes. I was looking at IP based remotes for Android TVs but they all require a USB dongle. I would like to have 1 universal remote that I can use to pick which TV I want to control without interfering with the other TV. I realize I could get 2 4K Mini Genies and use those but I like cleanness of the RVU client and not mounting boxes behind my screens. Is there a great RS232C or IP Remote you could recommend? I would even be up for buying 2 separate remotes long as they don't control the wrong TV.

    I have the 850d , is it safe to use the DCI color space with my Apple tv4? that space seems to make the tv look it's best but I'm not sure if it's a color space that should only be used with 4K content

    Nice video. Just got a new 49X830C, there were so many buttons. But I'm beginning to see why I gravitated to it. Great TV. But, my TV stopped working on Thanksgiving day, called tech support that Friday but as 1 wk., it still has not been serviced. What freaks me out the most is it just cut off. No nothing. I've tried to reactivated it with the remote using commands from Sony tech support, but nothing. I don't know, understand, like that it just stopped working. Would you have any ideas…. I do have peripherals connect to it and got a new PS4 Pro the day b4 the holiday. YOu have any ideas on what may have caused it to go out? If you need more info, let me know

    ITS FIXED NOW. It just started to work again. The day the tech came I tried turning it on…. boom! It powered up.
