Function for conversion of video signals
The receiver is equipped with a function for converting video signals. Video signals and component video signals can be
output as HDMI video signals (*1).
The correspondence of the INPUT jacks to the OUTPUT jacks is shown below.
HDMI IN: HDMI OUT
COMPONENT VIDEO IN (for STR-DN1050 only): HDMI OUT (*1), COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT (*2)
VIDEO IN: HDMI OUT (*1), MONITOR OUT (*2)
*1
For STR-DN1050 only. Video signals are upconverted when output (up to 4K).
*2
The same type of signal as the input signal is output.
Note
When video signals from a VCR, etc., are upconverted on this receiver and then viewed on your TV, the image on the
TV screen may appear distorted horizontally or no image may be seen depending on the status of the video signal
output.
If you are using image improvement circuitry with your VCR, it may impact the video signal conversion. It is
recommended that you turn off this function on your VCR.
Converted HDMI image output does not support “x.v.Color (x.v.Colour),” Deep Color (Deep Colour), or 3D.
HDMI video signals cannot be converted to component video signals or video signals.
1080p component video signals cannot be upconverted.
When [4K Scaling] is set to [Auto], if the HDMI input signals are 1080p@23.98/24 Hz and a 4K-compatible TV is
connected, the HDMI input signals are automatically upscaled to 4K images and output from the HDMI OUT jack.

Notes on connecting cables
Be sure to disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead) before connecting cables.
It is not necessary to connect all of the cables. Connect cables according to the availability of jacks on the connected
device.
Use a High Speed HDMI cable. 1080p, Deep Color (Deep Colour), 4K or 3D images may not be displayed properly if
you use a Standard HDMI cable.
We do not recommend using an HDMI-DVI conversion cable. If you connect an HDMI-DVI conversion cable to a DVID device, the sound and/or image may be lost. Connect separate audio cables or digital connecting cables, then
reassign the input jacks if the sound is not output correctly. For details, see “Using other video/audio input jacks (Input
Assign).”
When connecting optical digital cables, insert the plugs straight until they click into place.
Do not bend or tie optical digital cables.
Hint
All of the digital audio jacks are compatible with 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz sampling frequencies.

What is “BRAVIA” Sync?
The “BRAVIA” Sync function allows communication between Sony products such as TVs, Blu-ray Disc players, DVD
players, and AV amplifiers that support the Control for HDMI function.
Control for HDMI is a mutual control function standard used by HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) for HDMI
(High-Definition Multimedia Interface).
We recommend that you connect the receiver to products featuring “BRAVIA” Sync.

Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.)/2-channel sound mode
Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.) mode: This mode allows you to listen to higher-fidelity sound and select the
decoding mode for listening to a 2-channel stereo or monaural sound as multi-channel sound.
2-channel sound mode: You can switch the output sound to 2-channel sound regardless of the recording formats
of the software you are using, the playback device connected, or the sound field settings of the receiver.
A.F.D. Auto (A.F.D. AUTO):
Presets the sound as it was recorded/encoded without adding any surround effects.
However, for USA and Canada models, this receiver will generate a low-frequency signal for output to the subwoofer
when there is no LFE signals.
Multi Stereo (MULTI ST.):
Outputs 2-channel left/right or monaural signals from all speakers. However, sound may not be output from certain
speakers depending on the speaker settings.
2ch Stereo (2CH ST.):
The receiver outputs the sound from the front left/right speakers only. There is no sound from the subwoofer.
Standard 2-channel stereo sources completely bypass the sound field processing and multi-channel surround formats
are downmixed to 2-channels.
2ch Analog Direct (A. DIRECT):
You can switch the audio of the selected input to 2-channel analog input. This function enables you to enjoy high-quality
analog sources.
Only the volume and front speaker level can be adjusted when using this function.

sound ambience, just as the movie’s sound engineer intended in the mastering process.
Dynamic: This setting is suitable for an environment which is reverberant but lacks a spacious feel (where sound
absorption is not sufficient). It emphasizes the reflection of sound and reproduces the sound of a large, classic movie
theater. This emphasizes the spacious feel of a dubbing theater and creates a unique acoustic field.

of sound provided when a theatrical sound source is remixed for a Blu-ray Disc to a volume level suitable for home
use. The level of reflection and reverberation of sound is kept to a minimum, while dialogues and surround effects are
reproduced vividly.
PLII Movie:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode decoding. This setting is ideal for movies encoded in Dolby Surround. In
addition, this mode can reproduce sound in 5.1-channel format when watching videos of overdubbed or old movies.
PLIIx Movie:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie mode decoding. This setting expands Dolby Pro Logic II Movie or Dolby Digital 5.1 to
7.1 discrete movie channels.
Neo:6 Cinema (Neo:6 CIN):
Performs DTS Neo:6 Cinema mode decoding. Sources recorded in 2-channel format are enhanced up to 7 channels.
