FWIW, I've also noticed that the audio encoding has changed. flashhd
and flashvhigh audio is no longer encoded with the HE-AAC profile, but
rather using the AAC LC profile used for the other video quality
settings. Not a surprise given that the audio is only 96 kbps. Again,
that seems like it would it be more likely to work with a hardware
codec, but maybe the Sony TV doesn't like the change. On the plus side,
this might be a good thing for PS3 users whose machines couldn't cope
with the old audio encoding.
