Questions & Answers



KD-85X8500G (85")

How can I record tv programs, even if I have to buy a dongle or something?

1 answer

You cannot.
Buy a cheap nasty 4k KOGAN and you can record on it and play back on the Sony!
KOGAN has better media player too!

KD-85X8500G (85")

Is anyone experiencing slight discolouration on all four corners of the screen?

2 answers

No, but mine is only six months old. My previous Sony Bravia developed a screen fault at 3.5 years old, well outside the guarantee period. It needed a new screen at over $1500. I complained to Sony direct as a lifelong Sony customer arguing I bought Sony because I expected a longer life span and better quality than a cheapie. They agreed and fixed it for free. The sale of goods act ignores the guarantee period and states it must be fit for the purpose. A fair interpretation would be a cheapie telly can be expected to fail sooner than an expensive telly regardless of a 12 or 24 month guarantee that may have ended.
