Nah! I've had my 42" Samsung TV for nearly 4 years now and it's not even FULL HD (1080i), but it still looks awesome and runs super smooth.

I'm sure it does, but it sounds itchy.

 

Is the gs part of your name an abbreviation for grows shrubbery?

Here is my problem with Toshiba Regza 42ZV555D;

 

I neither say it's not working but nor it's working properly.

Each time I start my ps4; tv starts to blink blue screens-black screens like it's searching the best setup to make it work.

 

It depends when it decide to give the image to tv. Sometimes after 4 try sometimes after 20 try.

 

I made the last update when I first but PS4; four days ago.

 

As I person who had to the sell last two PS with a deep price because of technical issues; I'm afraid to have the same kind of problem with the new one because of that blinking thing... :(

 

Any suggestion to solve it???

Out of the box it would not work with my 2010 full HD Toshiba Regza 42" HDTV. After connecting it to a Sony monitor and doing the latest update it worked on the Toshiba tv.

@dobleuve I could not get my Regza to work on version 1.5 of the software. When I updated to 1.51 using my Sony TV the PS4 then worked on my Regza. I presume you updated the PS4 on another TV so connect it to the other TV and enable the HDMI Device Link on the PS4, this is found in Settings - System - Enable HDMI Device Link, make sure this box is ticked before connecting to your Regza. Then connect your PS4 back to your Toshiba and go into the settings on the TV and enable Regza Link (if your TV has this setting). Give that a try it might work. Hopefully it does.

Hey I've got a 26" Toshiba Regza from 2009 or 2010 and I can't get it to work. Did you do anything special to it to get it to work, or was it just updating the software?

It'll work on any tv with hdmi even if it's not full hd and if it doesn't then your hdmi port or your PS4 is faulty.
