Connecting the transmitter and a TV
Make preparations for wireless transmission of TV audio from the supplied transmitter to the neckband speaker or your BLUETOOTH headphones.
- Connect the DIGITAL IN (optical digital audio input) port on the transmitter and the optical digital audio output port on a TV with the supplied optical digital cable.
- Connect the DC IN port on the transmitter and the USB port on the TV with the supplied USB Type-C® cable.
While the transmitter is powered and receiving no audio signals, the indicator on the transmitter keeps flashing in orange.
If your TV is not equipped with a USB power output port, connect the transmitter to an AC outlet with a commercially available USB AC adaptor.
- Turn on the TV and make settings on it.
For details, refer to the operating instructions supplied with your TV.
When using a BRAVIA XR™ TV:
By using a BRAVIA XR TV in combination with the neckband speaker or Sony brand headphones, you can enjoy TV audio in spatial sound. Follow the on-screen instructions on the TV to make settings for the 3D surround functions.
For the compatible TV models and Sony brand headphones, access the following URL.
As long as the 3D surround functions remain active on the BRAVIA XR TV, you can enjoy TV audio in spatial sound just by connecting the transmitter with the neckband speaker or Sony brand headphones from the next time on.
When using a non-BRAVIA XR TV:
Specify PCM as the digital audio output method on the TV.
When any digital audio output method other than PCM is specified on the TV, the neckband speaker or the BLUETOOTH headphones may fail to output TV audio successfully.
Upon completion of setting the digital audio output method, the indicator on the transmitter turns from orange to blue.
On non-BRAVIA XR TVs, spatial sound is not available.
While TV audio is playing in spatial sound, no audio comes out from the TV. The volume control feature of the TV remote control is disabled as well.
Control over the volume of the neckband speaker or the headphones connected with the transmitter via a BLUETOOTH connection is not available on the TV.
Watching a video on a non-BRAVIA XR TV while listening to its audio via the neckband speaker or the headphones connected with the transmitter may cause unsynchronized video and audio.
