I have a Sony 32 inch LCD TV model KDL-32XBR6. The TV works great, but I have trouble with the video when I switch to a component source inputs. There is a delay sometimes with the video that can take as long as 3 to 5 minutes to lock in. I can hear the audio, but the display says - No signal. Check the external input or select another input.
The s-video and HDMI input sources come on right away. The old components only have the s-video and YPbPr outputs. The TV is only several months old. I'm not sure if it's the TV or does this particular model have this problem?

Re: Sony LCD TV
I would advice you to check your circuit board.
If the Tv is some months old then maybe it is under the warranty.
Get it checked at a service center.
This is not a problem with this particular model.
Hope this helps.

There is a Post on the Sony Support site which I hadn't previously found. Basically there is a software bug which has come about apparently due to Freeview transmission changes. In order to stop the the machine locking up disable the 'Automatic System Update' option. A Sony centre will apparently apply a software fix to properly resolve the issue, fine if with warranty period, maybe pricey if not. I will get the fix but haven't yet done so as the workaround of disabling the System Update option works.
Bottom line for the extra connectivity and DLNA certification i would go with the Bravia Z-Series KDL-40Z4100/B 40-Inch 1080pBecause if you connect this to your in home network you can stream music videos and music off you PC onto your TV without the need for extra wired or memory cards etc.
Otherwise if you don't need this feature the other options are identical on the other TV so it is just as good a choice.
Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.
