    I have had a Sony KDL-46EX711 tv for about a year.
    When turned on, you first get a a Sony logo sound
    and Sony on the screen and then it might be 6 seconds
    before you can control any functions with the remote.
    It acts like a computer booting up.
    Recently, it stopped giving the Sony logos and comes on
    showing what channel was last watched immediately and
    you can change channel or volume immediately.

    Why does it work the way I want it to NOW, after a year?

  2. Maybe it quietly downloaded a firmware update?

    I went a little further and found, it has the latest Firmware.
    Version PKG4.117AAL.
    So I think it did an automatic update. It has a wifi adapter attached.
    I'm going to start wearing my pants while watching tv, just in case! :)
    More software controls on this that I don't have a clue about.

    I always wanted to hear the Control Voice say...

    "There is nothing wrong with your television. But if we keep screwing with it,
    pretty soon there will be."
     
  6. Your TV is in quick start mode. Basically, it's not shutting fully down,
    but keeping the computer part running, which uses quite a bit of power.

    From the menus, go to Settings, Preferences. Scroll down to Quick Start.
    Change Smart Mode to OFF.

    It's hard to say what happened, but something caused the TV to reset
    itself.

    Jon Elson formulerede spørgsmålet:
    On the DVB-T2 network here the settop-boxes receives updates over the
    air, on each mux a channel is dedicated to this and the program guide.

    I'll pay the electric bill, even my wife hated waiting for it to boot up.
    Thanks, Mikek
