Sony Announces Dolby Vision Firmware Update Available January 2018

A promised Dolby Vision firmware update which was announced nearly a year ago at CES 2017 will roll out on certain models this January, with other European models to follow in February.

The models highlighted for the update include the following:

4K OLED TVs – A1E Series

XBR-55A1E 55-inch

XBR-65A1E 65-inch

XBR-77A1E 77-inch

4K LCD TVs – Z9D Series, HDR-enabled

XBR-65Z9D 65-inch

XBR-75Z9D 75-inch

XBR-100Z9D 100-inch

4K LCD TVs – X930E and X940E, HDR-enabled

XBR-55X930E – 55-inch

XBR-65X930E – 65-inch

XBR-75X940E – 75-inch

Following the update, all TVs on the list will subsequently support HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision.

Dolby Vision is a premium HDR format which takes advantage of a ‘dynamic metadata’ system to optimize HDR picture quality on a scene-by-scene or even frame-by-frame basis. The content itself will control brightness and dimming, and Dolby Vision offers optimal tonemapping. As a result, content will look as good as it can, as the DV system measures the capabilities of your particular compatible model.

There’s not much information beyond this at the moment, but please comment below if you’ve been waiting for this update for one of your Sony models, or if you have more nuggets to share…

  1. I usually do not use apps built in to my TV. But you have to admit, it's rather odd that Sony is the only major TV mfr that is unable to stream Vudu in UHD. And the lack of UHD video apps on their UHD Blu-ray player, compared to what is available on Samsung and LG, is also appalling.

  2. Here's Sony's recommended instructions on how to upgrade your 2017 X1 Extreme equipped TV for the DV upgrade via USB.

    USB Firmware upgrade Instructions:

    STEP 1. Download and Transfer the Update File/Folder to Your USB Storage Device

    Download the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file to a temporary or download directory (note this directory for reference) on your computer.
    Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and verify that the size of the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file is 1,691,886,433 bytes.
    Right-click the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file, and click Properties.
    On the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip Properties screen, verify that the Size listed is 1.57 GB (1,691,886,433 bytes).
    Note:The Size on disk listed may be different. That's normal.
    If the file size is different than the 1,691,886,433 bytes, download the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file again.
    Extract the update file from the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file.
    For Microsoft® Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, 8.1, or Windows 10 operating system:
    Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and right-click the sony_dtvNetwork_2016_1602818100_naa_auth.zip file, and then click Extract All.
    Note: For Windows 8.1 and 10, the default settings for Internet Explorer® will save the file in the Downloads folder. For Windows 10, use File Explorer to locate the Downloads folder, for Windows 8.1, click the Desktop tile from the Start screen and then locate the downloaded file using Windows Explorer.
    At the Extract Compressed (Zipped) Folders window, click Extract.
    A new file will be created called sony_dtv0FA60A0AA0AA_00004300_16026761000070.pkg.

    Check the current firmware version to confirm that the update has successfully installed.
    If the version number is PKG6.2818.0070NAA, the firmware update was successful.
    If the version number is not PKG6.2818.0070NAA, or if an error occurred during the software update, download and install the update again.

    Trouble shooting:

    Either message, An error occurred during the software update or Software cannot be updated using this USB device is displayed on the TV.
    Resolutions:
    Verify your USB device is in good working order and then perform the download and update process again.
    Press the POWER button on the TV to turn it off, and then back on, and then perform the installation process again.
    Note: If the message No newer version of the TV software was found is displayed, your TV already has the newer firmware installed.
    Contact our Support team if you need assistance with the upgrade

  3. After you update any Sony X1 Extreme equipped TV you will need to power the TV off and on and then go to the "settings" menu and reenable the "Enhanced" HDMI feature. This should get DV streaming to work.

    Regarding DV not working over HDMI or USB here's what I know and have found out.

    First, I want everyone to know that I personally watched DV play on Sony's Z9D and A1E at CES with Sony's new UBP-X700 UHD Blu-ray player player and Sony's USB content. I have the USB DV stick coming to me later this week and I'll play it in my showroom on all X1 Extreme equipped TVs.

    Second, as everyone know DV works beautifully on streaming content.

    Third, from what I can determine the issue is that Sony developed the DV upgrade to Dolby's latest profile and we need OPPO and Apple to update their devices. This is my best early evaluation. I'm waiting for verification and will keep everyone updated as I learn more.

    Here's one of Dolby's technical .pdfs that explains their profile levels.

  4. If this profile thing is true, just hilarious. I mean could DV be more of a mess? Its like getting a new operating system on your phone and some apps won't work… Meanwhile, HDR10 just rolling on by saying "look at me".

  5. This is insane and bullshit if true:

    OK Everyone. I just spent 15 minutes on the phone with the Oppo Digital rep and here's what's going on. Sony has decided to implement a special low-latency profile for Dolby Vision. This apparently is a new profile Dolby created just for Sony. This is very different from the profiles done by LG and Vizio, who implement the full standard profile. How Sony was able to get this kind of special treatment is another topic.

    For the low-latency profile, more pre-processing work is done prior to passing the data to the TV. For the full DV profile implemented by LG and Vizio, most of the processing is done by the TV itself. What this means is that both Oppo as well as Dolby and the chip vendor, MediaTec, have to add firmware to do the preprocessing. It's strictly a matter of how the processing is distributed and doesn't affect video quality.

    My understanding is that Sony has no intention whatsoever to support the full profile. They are leaving it strictly up to the source providers to support low-latency.

    The timeline for a new firmware drop from Oppo with low-latency profile support is April.

  6. To be honest, I'm pretty thrilled with the standard HDR image on my Sony 940E. But Sony *did* promise Dolby Vision for this set and NEVER told customers that it would be a "limited" or "low-latency profile"-only version of Dolby Vision. So Sony better f'ing deliver a full Dolby Vision implementation that works over HDMI. If they don't, I will insist that Sony exchange my set for whatever model replaces the 940E with full Dolby Vision support.

    I know Oppo will eventually get around to supporting this low-latency profile but I have my doubts that Apple will make it a priority.

  7. I'm honestly going to stop chasing the DV rabbit. I have been happy with HDR10 discs for 13 months now, so I am moving on from the whole discussion. It is basically ridiculous that we are at the 7-month mark and they keep changing the rules.

  8. Well, I went ahead and installed the PKG6.2818.0075NAA update on my 940E so I'd at least have Dolby Vision on streaming apps on the TV. Now I very much regret that decision! Reason: Some 4K Dolby Vision titles on my Apple TV 4K refuse to play in ANY form of HDR!

    That's right, some Apple TV 4K Dolby Vision titles that used to play in standard HDR on my 940E now don't trigger the HDR flag at all. They play in SDR.

    I haven't checked every 4K Dolby Vision title, but this is what I've seen so far. Apple TV 4K Dolby Vision titles that play only in SDR after installing the 2818.0075NAA update on my Sony 940E:

    The Accountant
    Concussion
    Kong Skull Island
    Man of Steel
    San Andreas
    Sully

    I tried about 7 or 8 other Apple TV 4K 4K Dolby Vision titles that *did* play back in standard HDR on the updated Sony 940E.

    Something about this basterdized Sony low-latency DV is so "special" that it is f'ing up my ability to enjoy some 4K Dolby Vision content my Apple TV 4K. Thank you, Sony!

  9. Not only that, but they have had black level fluctuations with the LG's and DV finally owned that at CES. This morning I see an article that says "Dolby and LG vow to fix the black level issue". Whatever man…

    I'm honestly going to stop chasing the DV rabbit. I have been happy with HDR10 discs for 13 months now, so I am moving on from the whole discussion. It is basically ridiculous that we are at the 7-month mark and they keep changing the rules.

    That's been pretty much my stance on the whole Dolby Vision thing. My Vizio display supports DV and my Denon AVR can pass the video signal, but I have no 4K source that supports DV (Sony X-800 UHD player and Roku Ultra). My only way to use DV is via the Vizio's built-in Vudu app, and I have watched exactly one DV streamed film that way — Wonder Woman.

    I'm perfectly happy with watching lowly ol' HDR10. I would like to eventually upgrade my Sony X-800 player — only because I want to move that player to our master bedroom. But after seeing the announcements for 2018 UHD disc players from Sony and Panasonic, I'm not in any hurry to spend money on those offerings. I'm even wondering if Sony will botch the promised Dolby Vision firmware upgrade for their 2018 disc player by making it support only this low-latency profile and not the full profile?

  11. Exactly! Since getting a display that could properly tone map HDR10 (my 2015 EF9500 was terrible) I have been loving UHD and HDR. HDR10 Netflix and Amazon look good too.

    My other issue is once some of these devices detect you are DV capable, you are forced to use it. Kinda tired of half-baked formats and someone like Dolby telling me what to do with my gear. I will be avoiding any UHD disc spinner that doesn't give you the option to disable DV until this sorts out more.

    I found a workaround until Sony fixes this mess. On the Sony 940E, by going to Picture Adjustments/Advanced Settings/Video Options and changing HDR Mode from AUTO to HDR10 it forces the 940E to only use HDR10 for HDR. With it set to HDR10 the 6 titles listed above on my Apple TV 4K now play back in standard HDR.

    I guess setting HDR Mode to HDR10 turns off Sony's bastardized version of low-latency Dolby Vision. Good riddance.

    Thanks for the workaround Mark!

  14. I just want to give a special shout out to Oppo in this thread. They are a small company and most likely weren't planning to spend the time and money needed to roll out a second lite version of Dolby Vision to be compatible with just one vendor, but they are.

    Thanks Oppo for working on a fixing something that Sony should have owned!

    Well, the newest rumor, which Sony has a press release coming (allegedly), is that Sony was told source devices already had the update by Dolby. So Oppo tried to throw Sony under the bus, and then Sony moved and Oppo bumped Dolby under the tires instead.

    Some have said "why didn't Sony test the tv's with devices", well, they have DV running on their X700 (beta FW I reckon) and I guess they ASSumed Dolby had everyone else up to par.

    The whole thing is ridiculous regardless.

  16. Folks, it certainly appears that Sony is in the process of covering its tracks. The current 930E and 940E product specification web page is here:

    https://www.sony.com/electronics/televisions/XBR-X930E-X940E-Series/specifications

    That page USED to say that Dolby Vision was coming via a firmware update. Not anymore.

    Scroll down to the box that shows this:

    [​IMG]

    And farther down on that page, this:

    [​IMG]

    Notice they both reference a footnote #5. That specifications page does NOT list the footnotes. But the current Sony PDF file for the 940E DOES contain a footnote #5. That PDF file is here:

    https://docs.sony.com/release//SPECS/XBR75X940E_mksp.pdf

    And here is the current footnote #5 contained in that PDF:

    [​IMG]

    "5. Requires HDR compatible content from supported streaming services, such as Netflix, Ultra and Amazon Video."

    Unfortunately, that PDF file isn't in the internet WayBack Machine. Does anyone have an earlier copy? The previous version referenced Dolby Vision coming via a firmware update.

    Now they've changed the PDF to (by my interpretation) state that Dolby Vision is only available via streaming services. Which is exactly the Dolby Vision update they released.

    I very much regret not capturing and documenting ALL of Sony's promises made prior to this debacle. What a load of horse manure!

  17. I have to wonder why Dolby would even decide to provide this low-latency version of DV. Dolby is already having difficulty getting the format accepted in the home theater environment, and adding another wrinkle only further fragments their product. Now consumers not only have to make sure that every component in their chain supports Dolby Vision, but it also has to support this low-latency version as well.

    It's decisions like this that could drive the market to HDR10+.

    I wonder if this is the new SW version of DV as an alternative to the chip. Allows displays to have it but the load has to be taken on by the source device. IMO, Source devices should be doing the load anyways…

  19. The "fix" I came up with for certain Dolby Vision titles on my Apple TV 4K (putting the 940E's HDR Mode into HDR10 instead of AUTO) is a royal pain in the ass. I have to constantly toggle between HDR10 and AUTO. If left in HDR10 for non HDR content the image looks terrible. I've given up on the toggling and just leaving HDR Mode in AUTO and I'm avoiding watching Dolby Vision titles on my Apple TV 4K that don't trigger HDR.

    This a royal load of horse sh!t. Once the "screw you, you have to do it our way" information is forthcoming from Sony in the U.S. I will begin pressing Sony to buy back my 940E. If they refuse, fortunately, the purchase price is well below the small claims court limit here in California. I'll name Fry's Electronics in the suit as well.

    Mark

  20. He is a little late on that one…

    This was posted at AVS and makes the most sense:

    "Dynamic metadata streams independently along with the data stream from internal apps. Sony then maps this metadata to the display. But, HDMI < 2.1 cannot pass dynamic metadata. Dolby has gotten around that limitation by embedding the dynamic metadata into the video signal when passed via HDMI. In this case, the display must extract the metadata from the video signal before it can process it. Either Sony TVs cannot perform this process or Dolby has introduced a new method for Sony to be the first to use."

    I could go with Sony tv's cannot perform the process currently, because MediaTek just launched their DV Android TV chips, and Sony uses off the shelf solutions AFAIK. LG has been using a custom SoC designed with Dolby since 2016.

    My guess is, when DV and Sony decided at CES 2017 they would install DV on the 2017 sets, Dolby, Sony and MT had to get together and figure it out, which is where the UBP-X700 comes in. Now, companies being companies, none of them shared this little tidbit with Oppo, and the other MediaTek customers until the bomb was dropped, now Oppo has to go out and figure it out, and then get recertified.

    Makes me wonder if the UBP-X700 won't be the first DV player to work with Sony tv's, and that was by design…

  21. Gadgt blames Dolby in the new consolidated thread at AVS. I don't and I will tell you why:

    gadgtfreek;55546802

    The biggest joke to me, after watching that, is Dolby. Idiots.

    OK but let's look at it from Dolby's PoV. There are two ticks against DV when compared to HDR or HDR10:
    – Licensing Fees
    – Requiring dedicated hardware.

    So let's assume Dolby WANTS to keep the license fees moving. They have to fix #2 to remain competitive in the face of HDR10+. How do you do that? Either on the device or on the panel. Assume Dolby isn't just interested in Oppon and Apple. With this change they have short term pain but long term they can add:

    Every cheap UHD deck
    Playstation 4
    Xbox
    Kindles
    Rokus

    Hell anything that connects to HDMI with a half decent processor can do DV as long as that sweet sweet licensing lucre keeps rolling in.

    And right now? It looks like Sony are the dopes.

    And partly, Sony is. Not because they made a bad technical decision, BUT BECAUSE THEY FAILED TO SET CONSUMER EXPECTATIONS ACCORDINGLY.

    I don't blame Dolby in this situation. They have the potential to rapidly expand their user base.

    I TOTALLY BLAME SONY. Sony advertised a set in January and Delivered it to me in March with a CORE FEATURE I counted on being there. By the time I can actually use that feaure the same panel will have a street cost of HALF of what I paid for it. To the tune of THOUSANDS of dollars.

    That's my PoV as a pioneer who has arrows in his back.

  22. LOL, you have hated Sony most of 2017 all year, it ain't gonna change now…

    I just don't see how anyone can't blame Dolby, unless their judgment is skewed

    1. It is Dolby's format
    2. It took them 6 months to admit to the raised black level issue that has been there from the start, and the fix still is not implemented AFAIK
    3. Sony agreed to go ahead with 2017 models and in the process, Sony knew the tv's couldn't process internally. DV knew this too, and allowed it to continue with a new version.
    4. Sony, Dolby and MediaTek find a way to get it to work internally on the Sony displays and with the MediaTek chip in the X700, yet Dolby couldn't bother to share this with Oppo, another MediaTek user and DV partner?
    5. Sony just flat out said publicly they were under the impression source devices already had the update. I don't see how they do that if Dolby didn't drop the ball, and then Oppo comes out and was never told until now the Sony FW released and didn't work.

    That's on Dolby. They should never have certified and allowed the release of the TV FW until there were source devices updated. Hell, why did it take them SIX MONTHS to own up and fix the black level issue? Why? Because their head is up their ass.

    Dolby is the fool.

  23. BTW, my current stance is I did not care about DV in the past nor base my purchasing on it because I love HDR10 on a calibrated display. Therefore I really don't care about it now…

    Hardly anyone I know is using HDR10 now, no one even knows what DV is outside of forum people and folks in the industry.

    Appeasing Sony may have been the root cause, but Oppo and Apple shouldn't have been left in the dark. They should have been given enough notice to have had fixes/updates ready to go by now.

    ALL about setting expectations.

  26. So, about a week after the fiasco, ATV4K just got a developer beta 11.3 and DV is now active between the ATV4K and Sony displays. Sure, Sony hid it from everyone and Apple added it in a week. Keep thinking Dolby didn't screw this up…

    Apple had time to prepare, why not Oppo?

  27. If you are Sony why do you take anyone's word for it and ship your firmware without testing your panel with external devices? YOU DON'T. That would be colossally stupid and against every software engineering principle.

    Sony knew from the beginning that they were shipping an update that no external devices on the market could communicate DV to.

  28. LOL, Sony said "second half of January", and now you have DV internal apps and Apple just proved the info was out there for HDMI DV support with the new beta. What are you still bitching about, because Dolby didn't tell Oppo or Oppo is dragging its feet? You are full of manure if you think Sony released that and within 8 days of being taken by surprise Apple released an update.

    This has been known by Dolby and Co for awhile obviously, but hey, you keep making up things to be mad about.

  29. Apple released the beta tvOS 11.3 to developers today. A developer posted this to Blu-ray.com:

    http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=14634727#post14634727

    HIs included message is pretty cryptic, but later in the thread he posts this:

    http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=14634822#post14634822

    and this:

    http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=14635083#post14635083

    So, amazingly, Apple has ALREADY issued the beta software that fixes Dolby Vision compatibility between Apple TV 4K and Sony's Dolby Vision firmware update.

    I agree with his assessment, Apple *had* to be working on this Dolby Vision profile implementation BEFORE Sony released its firmware update last week. Which means Dolby Labs had communicated the need for support of the new profile to its partners. Which means…

    Hey, Dolby Labs, how about getting off your lazy ass and communicate with consumers?! When the Sony TV broohaha popped up last week, Dolby Labs should have issued a statement immediately to alleviate consumer heartache and confusion.

    Mark

  30. People are reporting that the tvOS 11.3 public beta is now available. If your Apple TV 4K is enrolled in Apple's public beta program, you should be able to upgrade your device now.

    I haven't tried it yet and won't until sometime next week (out of town).

    And now with Oppo quitting the business we will never see DV from them on this stupid TV =(

    Oppo said there will still be firmware updates. I actually had a Sony TV FW update this weekend (Z9D), not sure what it included.

  32. Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, unless you read it on Hometheaterforum.com.

    Sony's XBR-75X940E is alive and well and will carry over into the 2018 model year. The fix has to come from OPPO who needs to add Dolby Vision's standard "Low Latency" protocol. Apple Ultra TV did it in one week.
