Sony TV discussion II {consolidated}

For all Sony TV discussions.


2019 models are labelled G series
2018 models are the F series, so don't get cheated by unscrupulous companies..

The older discussion is here:

Is there any recommended display/colour settings for X9000F?

I tried a few, but cannot seem to get the best out of it.

Interested in getting Google home. Anyone successfully add TV to it? Read you need to buy and plug in chrome cast to turn TV on.

The thing is Google home can’t turn the TV on as the TV - and built in Chrome cast - is off.

My X9000F is shown inside my Google Home app and beside it I put a Google home mini and select it as default TV. My room also got Google Home Mini so I can control via voice instead of pressing the Google assistance button on the remote control.

I say I am going out, it will auto off my smart light and switch off my Sony X9000F then I say I am home it will on my TV back. Not too bad, set volume, increase or decrease also can ask Google Home to do via voice.

Other I tried are: Ok Google play xxxxxx on YouTube or xxxxxx on Spotify or TuneIn Radio on the TV and the TV will start showing or playing.

My parents at living room sometimes watch the TV that I felt very loud, from my room Google home mini I will ask the TV outside to lower volume. Haha, too lazy to walk out, or just use the Sony TV app to decrease the volume.

Thanks for the reply! So I need to just buy the Google Home?

The new 2019 model 55X9500G still got built in microphone so you can use the Google Assistant without touching the remote. Hands free.

Which means for your case, if you are looking at 49"
than it would be X8500G.
