This guide will explain how to get the most from your new High Definition TV.
Learn more. Visit the Sony HDTV Learning Center www.sony.com/HDTV
Please take these steps before you power up your BRAVIA™:
Register online at:
www.sony.com/registration (from U.S.A.)
www.SonyStyle.ca/registration (from Canada)
Make sure you've removed all accessory contents from packaging.

The Four Steps to a Full HD Experience: Set, Sound, Source,
and Setup
Along with your BRAVIA™ TV set, a complete HD system requires an HD sound system, a
source of HD content, and proper setup connection with components such as your HD
cable or satellite box.
You must get HD programming to experience the full detail of HDTV.
The quality of the image you see on your BRAVIA™ can only be as high as the quality of the
signal it is displaying. This chart shows the different signal types and how to access them.

Watching Your TV

Select Your Content Source
Whether you are watching cable, satellite or broadcast TV; playing a VCR, DVD or Blu-ray
Disc™; or connecting to your PC, you need to choose the correct input using your remote
control:
Press HOME on your remote control to display on-screen the TV mode or External
Inputs selection menu; OR
Press INPUT repeatedly until your selection is highlighted on-screen.
Adjust Screen Shape and Aspect Ratio
High Definition and Standard Definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios
(the width-to-height shape of the image). Most HD signals use a widescreen aspect ratio of
16:9. Most SD signals use a boxy 4:3 aspect ratio. The 16:9 aspect ratio looks perfect on your
BRAVIA™, but a 4:3 image must be adjusted to look right. You can:
Adjust your TV so boxy 4:3 images are automatically re-configured (zoomed or
stretched) to fit the wide TV screen; OR
Watch SD content in its original, boxy format with wide black bars surrounding the
image to fill in unused space (for example, you may prefer to watch an old classic
movie in its original 4:3 format, not reconfigured for a wide screen).
Press WIDE on your remote control to display the Wide Mode setting of your
preference.

Customize Sound and Picture Quality
You can choose optimum sound and picture settings to match the content you are
displaying on your TV:
Press HOME on your remote control and select Picture or Sound. Choose the
appropriate setting for your content.
Use the OPTIONS button on your remote control to quickly adjust sound and picture
quality.
