If you own a PS5 and a Sony TV, make sure to update your TV today

Here’s a quick PSA: if you own a Sony TV from the last two years, you might want to check for an update when you have a chance today. Sony’s latest software patch impacts the Sony X90J, X95J and Z9J from 2021 as well as the new X90K, X95K and Z9K from 2022. It’s a huge update, especially if you’re a PS5 owner.

What the software update aims to fix is ​​a problem that Sony TVs have when connected to a PS5 that disabled the backlight’s local dimming function if variable refresh rate (VRR) was on. That caused a noticeable drop in HDR performance compared to the TV’s other modes.
