Customer Support http://www.sony.com/tvsupport Canada http://www.sony.ca/support On-line Registration United States http://productregistration.sony.com Canada http://www.sonystyle.ca/registration 3 Welcome to the World of BRAVIA® Thank you for purchasing this Sony BRAVIA® high-definition television. The quality of the image you see on your BRAVIA TV is only as good as the quality of the signal it receives. To experience the stunning detail of your new BRAVIA TV, you need access to HD programming. Your BRAVIA TV can receive and display HD programming from: • • • • Over-the-air broadcasting via HD-quality antenna HD cable subscription HD satellite subscription Blu-ray Disc™ player or other HD compatible external equipment Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming. To learn more about HDTV, visit: U.S.A. http://www.sony.com/HDTV Canada http://www.sonystyle.ca/hd 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 programming and proper setup connections. This manual explains basic setup connections (see page 12). The Quick Setup Guide, enclosed separately, illustrates how to connect other optional equipment. Picture Quality and Aspect Ratio You can enjoy crisp, clear images, smooth movement and high-impact visuals from 1080 HD signals. When you compare a high-definition signal to a standard analog signal, you will notice a big difference. High-definition and standard-definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios (the width-to-height ratio of the image). HDTV uses a wider screen than conventional standarddefinition TV. 16:9 (high-definition) source Most HDTV signals use a wide screen aspect ratio of 16:9. The 16:9 fills your BRAVIA screen, maintaining a crisp, clear, vivid picture. 4:3 (standard-definition) source Most standard-definition signals use a boxy 4:3 aspect ratio. When a 4:3 image is displayed on an HDTV, you will see black bars on the sides. The picture quality may not be as sharp as with HD sources. ~ • You can use the Wide Mode function of the TV to adjust the 4:3 image to fit the entire screen (see pages 22, 35 and 36). 4 TV Home Menu: XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) The XMB™ is an easy way to access the TV settings for customizing, making adjustments, viewing the available TV channels and selecting the connected equipment. Press the HOME button on your remote control to display the XMB™.
