Android TV update for NSZ-GS7

by tommypik Rookie ‎06-28-2014 11:29 AM

Updating the NSZ-GS7 to Android TV from Google TV would be amazing. Since Android TV will be in all Sony TV's next year the technology is in the labs. I would like to see my NSZ-GS7 get updated to use the new software so that I can continue to have the best experience using Sony products. 


It would be great if in the Audio Settings menu of the HAP-Z1ES, there could be a feature that allows you to change the phase settings of the two d/a converts (from "normal" to "invertred", and vice versa).  Stereophile's latest issue reviews this player and mentions that the phase of the L/R channels is inverted.


This is something that you can changed via firmware, as the d/a chips in this unit have the feature of being software controlled and switching the phase is a feature of these chips.


Thank you.

Dear Sony,<br>When you first announced the playstation TV/vita TV I preordered it and then realised this product has so much potential. I believe this product holds the future of gaming.<br><br>Firstly the form factor of this device is magical and hence there is no reason why it couldn't be incorporated into every Sony Television, everybody uses televisions and therefore you would be giving everybody the ability to game from any television.<br><br>Now what I propose is a massive project I know but hear me out. You need every Sony television to have a Ps vita Tv built in, you need to allow every other TV manufacturer to bundle the *external* Ps vita tv with their televisions. Now you might be thinking what happens when we release a new Ps Vita well I would suggest using the same chip archiecture with the newest ARM CPU and combo it with the Nvidia tegra K1 (these are already tried and tested chips, check out the Nvidia shield tablet to see it's power) and making it backwards compatible.<br><br>Now this is all well and good but now I need to ask you a question, is the vita Operating system built for the future? Now I understand that what I'm about to say might not be possible for the current gen Vita, but to make the vita the ultimate gaming machine it needs to have more games and that's why I brought up the OS, what would happen if you, let's say used an Android based OS on the Vita, this would give you two MASSIVE library of games to play and countless apps that would be a dream on the vita. Because the easiest way to get more developers for a device is to incorporate another platform. Please think about the future Sony this might be the biggest change in the gaming market in history and you'll be the ones behind it.<br><br>Now this last feature is a crazy feature that would be a but further down the line but is still on the &quot;greatest platform&quot; topic. Steam/Valve is developing a game streaming service where you can stream you PC games to another device, this would add another huge library of games to this device and would add so much more value to it.<br><br>This idea/vision will be very hard to get right but I believe that you Sony are the greatest company to do it, thank you for your time.<br><br>,Norman

Global shutter CMOS

by 2014K Rookie ‎05-15-2014 06:27 PM - edited ‎07-26-2014 01:50 PM

It has been 2 years and there are already Global Shutter CMOS cameras for industrial use. We have the global shutter F55 and Sony patented a sensor last December only for industrial use. But what about the CONSUMER who has do deal with the rolling shutter? I thought the line between pro and consumer was shrinking. If a camera or camcorder had a global shutter it would be worth the sale and competition. At least the action cams should have a global shutter. It should be catching on like 4k.

Bring back the king size circumaural ear cushions from the MDR-XB500 headphones

by wiggles Rookie ‎05-01-2014 05:03 PM - edited ‎05-01-2014 05:26 PM

The MDR- XB500 headphones are some of the best headphones I've ever used. One of the main reasons is that they are extremely comfortable thanks to the awesome ear cushions that enclose the ear and don't rest on it. I can wear them for several hours and barely notice them. I use these for everything from music to movies to gaming and they never get painful to wear and sound great.


The newer MDR-XB600 has horrible, uncomfortable, flat earpads that rest directly on your ear and gets very painful after about 30 minutes. No thanks.


I bought a pair of XB500s about 3 years ago for $50, now I can hardly find them for less than $160 and most are second hand since apparently, they aren't being made anymore.


Sony, please start making XB-500s again or at the very least, stick the amazing ear cushions on the XB-600s.


I know a lot of gamers and youtubers that would love a super comfortable pair of headphones like the 500s, especially if there was a good microphone *wink *wink. But seriously, bring back the cushions.


Can someone have a good idea?

USB 3.0 for DV

by 2014K Rookie ‎06-13-2014 07:13 AM

Firewire and DV are declining in the age of instant memory. Solid memory players like ODC-300RE offer USB 2.0/3.0, while the VTRs only offer firewire. However, people are trying to convert DV to digital or are still using it. Windows 8 does not support firewire (unfortunately) and that could be an issue when Windows 7 becomes useless. Firewire is the only connection that offers the best quality from DV. These new VTRs should come with USB 3 or there should be an adapter to convert firewire to USB 3. Usb 3.0 does act like firewire in a way so there should not be an issue. Tapes can be a drag but it doesn't mean they should be left behind, the info can't be lost forever. Like film, DV must be updated (and probably supprot 4k).
