Unreliable, unstable connection to android apps
Constantly disconnects from apps like Netflix, YouTube and Prime TV. Or I get the swirling red circle of death when trying to open the apps. I've tried all of the usual bs fixes these big companies spout, but nothing works. I've never experienced these problems when accessing the same apps on my Android wifi tablet nor from my pc. Wish I had now bought a Samsung.

read before you get SONY
I have purchase this TV 8/09/2020 just after the release,but as soon as I started using problems with it as follow freezing picture switching it self of, going to apps by itself or when it was switch on next day will be only frozen picture from time it was switch off. contacted Sony and I have been instructed to do full reset and check that software is up to date, of course it was, so I was referred to Sony service in Perth, that is completely hopeless I was unable to contact them and unable to leave massage, there was announcement massage bank...full. So I have contacted JB HiFi, after conversation they decided to sent replacement TV, unfortunately my joy was short lived. More problems with new one wouldn't load any APPS, more calls and more waiting, finally I was in touch with Above Electronics, but they refuse to come for repairs because TV was wall mounted. In the end I had take day off to help technician to remove it. After replacing main control panel and loading new software from memory stick TV still refuse to work. contacted JB HiFI again, they agreed to refund my money as no other brand TV was available. I have received full refund 31/12/2020. SONY product I will never touch again and will never endorse it. I am glad that is is finally over, long and stress full process, and I must add also costly, because loss off income to top all this. JB HiFi was extremely helpful and professional, I am extremely happy with staff that help me to deal with all this. Thank you Cannington team.

Love this TV
This TV is amazing. Had the TV for 3 months now and all i can say is smart TVs have come a long way since my last one 6 years ago. What i like best is the apps that allow you to set up your TV the way you like it. The picture quality is fantastic. Super easy to set up and for the price is has functions that the more expensive Samsungs have.

Very impressive 4K TV. Picture Clarity and operation is Excellent.
Bought this 85" Sony after much research and many visits to stores to compare. The picture quality and clarity are second to none in my opinion. We have had the TV for a month now. It is an amazing TV and we are very happy with our purchase. Have had many friends over who are in awe of the size and clarity of the TV. We often have a 4K silent nature video playing on the TV with quiet music playing over the HEOS system in the house. Looks unreal and sounds unreal.
Had the TV delivered by HN. (It is a monster and weighs in at 68Kg in the box)

Dodgy audio, random issues
Update 16 December
3 new audio issues occurring.
1. For the past few weeks, my soundbar no longer has audio when turning on. IE. Turn the TV on, soundbar turns on automatically, however there's no sound. This was never an issue before the last firmware update. The only way I've found to rectify this is to power cycle the soundbar.... every....single....time.
2. The sound drops out completely for about 10 seconds every 30mins or so. Occasionally I also see the soundbar display light up with the audio format (eg DD+ Atmos), which indicat...es the signal is dropping out. Occurs while watching Free to Air or streaming. 3. I've noticed small glitchy audio from time to time. Audio sounds a little wavey. __________________________________

Great TV in the under $2000 range
The Sony 55inch 9000H is a great TV for most households. It delivers a great picture quality due to the contrast ratio, brightness, and colour gamut. Very little to no motion blur, input lag is low which is awesome for gamers. The 9000H is great for for HDR content, both games and movies. However, if you have a large room get the 9500 instead, due to having more dimming zones.

worse TV ever the Sony Bravia - XD-65R9000H- avoid
this TV, just bought 26th September, two weeks on, lyes idle and unusable, there is NO decent, clear setup book or a troubleshooting manual, bought the 26th September 2020, today the 16th October 2020, on the 16th October, my review on the JBhi fi site was rejected :), JBhifi has questioned when this unit was bought and Sony have not called us, the sound quality gets worse the longer the TV is on, the HDMI out won't connect to the Foxtel through the Bose soundbar- the closed captions are so out of sync, it's laughable. I will be very ...careful when buying in the future, ANYthing from JBhifi seeking clearer exp[lanation of the warranty and I will definitely avoid a sony TV, forever. I understand that these are electronic and can have issues but not immediately, they shouldn't and not this bad with no support, that is my gripe, that Sony contacted by JB HiFi on the 16th "Apparently" have failed to contact me - if their goods were so good why is their warranty department so busy?

Questions & Answers
Has anyone else had issues with this TV picture freezing and rebooting for no reason? Bought it a couple of months ago and had it replaced because it kept turning itself off after the picture froze. Thought it might be because of the breaker power box, but no, the replacement is doing the same thing and it’s plugged straight into the wall outlet.
My Tv used to do the same and many other things I had replacement with many problems later Sony decided to repair without success in the end I shave return TV and purchase Sumsung
Now all behind me never again Sony
Yes it's happen to me a few times. Have to turn the power off then on again. Needs a reboot
Thanks but after paying $5k for a TV I’m not willing to keep turning it of to reboot. Mine does it quite a lot. I’ve contact Harvey Norman to see what they say again as this is my second unit.
Can you record to external hard drive on this tv?
I bought a Samsung back in march 2020 and had issues with it after a long back and forth repair and arguing to get a replacement, they finally gave me my money back and I decided to go for this Sony. Everything works except on normal free to air antenna channels has issues with sound after a while so I went back to Bing lee after a week and am now waiting for a replacement. Is your sound issue on free to air or internet as well??
its all luck - but I have never had an issue with a Samsung or Lg - Sony and buying from JB HiFi is a disaster, never will I ever buy from JbHifi or sony absolutely no customer service- our sound quality is horrendous on all services -
we reported this Wednesday 14th October today 23 October no call from Jbhifi or sony https://youtu.be/hwe5GtqftFM
Judging by the video uve put up. It seems it was the same issue i was having. I got a new unit now and it seems ok except the image from free to air seems to have a rapid flicker from time to time plus the volume lags a bit when pressed from the remote.
