System Software Update

What Does This Do?
Sony has designed the BRAVIA® Televisions software update process to be customer friendly. This software update (version 2.06r) addresses issues experienced by some customers, including the following:
  • When tuned to some digital channels you may experience a brief (about one second) interruption of the picture and sound when the scene changes, between programs and commercials, or between commercials. This may occur during either programs or commercials.
  • White dots or sparkles intermittently appear on the TV screen when displaying the menu or playing a DVD.
  • The television freezes momentarily, then powers off and then on. This can occur when the TV is tuned to a digital channel, or when auto-programming.
    Note: This issue only occurs with some broadcast channels due to incorrect formatting of service data on the channel.
  • Problems selecting an HDMI input on a CEC device using the XMB™ Menu.
  • Problems resolving the finest detail issue of some 1080i 60hz film-based content (mentioned in a recent PC Magazine article).
  • Intermittent audio on HDMI Input 4.
  • Photo Mode issue that may occur when performing slideshow Butterfly - The same picture sometimes continually displays, and the slideshow no longer transitions through the other pictures.
  • XMB sometimes does not display.
