Connect a LAN cable or add your TV to a wireless LAN to enjoy “BRAVIA” home network features.
Enjoying Photo/Music/Video Files via the Network
Enjoy various content, such as photo/music/video files, stored in DLNA Certified media server on your home network. With the home network feature, you can enjoy network content on the TV even in other rooms. To enjoy your home network, DLNA Certified equipment (e.g. VAIO) is necessary as a server.
Press HOME and select the listed media servers under the “Photo”, “Music” or “Video” category.
Select files or folders to play from the list on the selected media server.
- Files from a network device need to be compatible with the following file formats.
- - Still images: JPEG format
- - Music: MP3 format or linear PCM format
- - Video: AVCHD or MPEG2 format (not playable in some cases)
You can play back photo, music and video files stored in network devices (e.g. digital still cameras, mobile phones) on the TV screen by directly operating the target device. The network device should also be renderer-compatible.
To set a renderer, press HOME then select > Network > Renderer > the desired settings.
- Play back media files by using the network devices.
