Just got done trying to hook up my nephew's PS3 to their 10 month old 34" XBR960 Sony TV. I could not get it to work with a HDMI cable that I had. After much trial and error I found the HDCP compliant rules in small print in the PS3 manual. I am so angry I could spit! His TV is not compliant, my 1yr old 55" 3LCD projection set is not compliant! Hell, the 12 or so Sony HD TVs that I helped sell to friends, because I was a Sony emplyee are not compliant! Each TV has an HDMI connection, but due to Sony's decision to protect big business over any customer's interest it might as well be an anus.
I look back over my 10yrs of employment with Sony with pride, I felt that those were good times. Now I feel that Sony has lost their way and turned hostile towards it's loyal customers. I am not made of money. I invested in a Sony TV because I thought that it was a good company. I was wrong. Now am just angry.
If this is not the forum for this rant, then I am sorry. Violated people need to get things off their chest reguardless of venue.
