Introducing the TV
Thank you for purchasing this Sony LCD digital TV. This manual is for
models KDL-V26XBR1, KDL-V32XBR1 and KDL-V40XBR1.
Package Contents
Along with your new TV, the packing box contains a remote control, and
two AA (R6) batteries. See page 98 for the complete list of packaging
contents.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
s WEGA GATE™: WEGA GATE is a new feature that allows you to
easily navigate to the most convenient TV functions: favorite channels,
cable channels, antenna channels, external input list, viewing photo and
movies or settings.
s WEGA Engine: Delivers superb picture quality from any video source
by minimizing the signal deterioration caused by digital-to-analog
conversion and stabilizing the signal processing. This engine features
unique Sony technology, including:
• The first step in the digital processing system, Composite
Component Processor (CCP-X), which enhances input signal-tonoise ratio by chroma decoder digital processing.
• DRC® (Digital Reality Creation)-MF V1: Unlike conventional
line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature replaces the signal’s
NTSC waveform with the near-HD equivalent by digital mapping
processing. The DRC Palette option lets you customize the level of
detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity) to create up to three
custom palettes.
s Integrated HDTV: You can watch digital television programs and
enjoy the improved audio/video quality offered by these programs.
s Wide Screen Mode: Watch conventional 4:3 aspect ratio broadcasts in
wide screen (16:9) mode.
s S-master Full Digital Amplifier: Delivers superb clear dialog and
reproduces the original sound quality while minimizing any sound
fragmentation or jitter noise.
s CineMotion®: Using the reverse 3-2 pull down technology, the
CineMotion feature provides smoother picture movement when playing
back movies or other video sources on film.
s Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.

Connecting the TV
Overview
To display clear crisp pictures, you must connect your TV correctly and
choose the correct display format (see “Using the WIDE Button” on page
50). It is strongly recommended to connect the cable and antenna inputs
using a 75-ohm coaxial cable to receive optimum picture quality signal. A
300-ohm twin lead cable can be easily affected by radio noise and the like,
resulting in signal deterioration. If you use a 300-ohm twin lead cable, keep
it as far away as possible from the TV.
Making Video and
Audio Connections
The signals that enter your TV and connected devices will need to output in
the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are different types
of video connectors available these days. Your TV comes with all types of
connectors with the exception of the DVI connector but your cable box or
satellite receiver may be equipped with this type. When connecting your TV,
use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video
performance, as to below.

About Using S
VIDEO
If the optional equipment you are connecting has an S VIDEO jack
(shown at left), you can use an S VIDEO cable for improved picture
quality (compared to an A/V cable). Because S VIDEO carries only
the video signal, you also need to connect audio cables for sound, as
shown below.

About Using HDMI
to DVI Adapter
If you are connecting equipment with DVI connector to this TV, you will
need to use an adapter. You can use an HDMI-to-DVI cable or an HDMI
adapter (not supplied). Both are available at your local electronics store.
When you use the adapter, you will also need to use separate audio cables
for sound as DVI connector is for video signals only.

Using CableCARD Device
About Using
CableCARD Device
If you are planning to use a separate cable box for digital cable TV services,
you may be able to receive programming using this TV with the
CableCARD device instead — except in the following circumstances:
s Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your
viewing area.
s You want to access your cable TV company’s interactive or advanced
features (such as video-on-demand or, in some cases, pay-per-view). At
this time, these services require a bidirectional link, which are only
available through the use of a separate set-top box. The CableCARD
device is currently a unidirectional device only, and cannot provide
these advanced services.
Check with your cable TV company for CableCARD service details,
limitations, pricing, and availability, all of which are determined by your
cable TV company — not Sony.
Activating
CableCARD Service
Before you can use CableCARD service, you need to insert the CableCARD
device (supplied by your cable TV company) and activate the service, as
described below:

About DCF File
Names
Most Sony brand digital still and video cameras automatically record still
photo and movie files using DCF compliant directory and file names.
If you selected the Digital Camera Folders option, as described on page 67,
you might want to have your digital camera’s instruction manual handy in
order to check how files and directories are organized for your specific
model of digital camera.
DCF stands for “Design Rules for Camera File Systems,” which are
specifications established by the Japan Electronics and Information
Technology Industries Association (JEITA: formerly JEIDA).
Only DCF compliant directory and file names can be displayed on this TV
such as illustrated below.

Problem
Possible Remedies
Black bands appear at the top
and bottom of the screen
❑
Certain programs on DVD or ❑
other digital sources display a
loss of detail, especially during
fast-motion or dark scenes
Some wide-screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are greater than 16:9
(this is especially common with theatrical releases). Your TV will show these
programs with black bands at the top and bottom of the screen. For more details,
check the documentation that came with your DVD (or contact your program
provider).
The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs may cause your
TV’s screen to display less detail than usual, or cause artifacts (small blocks or
dots, pixelations) to appear on your screen. This is due to your TV’s large screen
and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for certain digitally recorded
programs. Adjust the reality/clarity in the DRC Palette setting (see page 72) to
optimize the picture while viewing these sources.

cannot be input. Change the sound setting for the external input device to Linear
PCM.
Communication problems may occur if infrared communication equipment (e.g.,
infrared cordless headphones) is used near the TV. Use headphones other than
infrared cordless headphones. Also, if you use infrared communication equipment
other than infrared cordless headphones, move the infrared transceiver away from
the TV until the noise is eliminated, or move the transmitter and receiver of the
infrared communication equipment closer together.
Increase the volume of the cable box using the cable box’s remote control. Then
press TV (FUNCTION) once (the TV indicator lights up) and adjust the TV’s
volume.
The TV’s audio might be set to Auto SAP or Mono, when it might be better set to
Stereo. In the Audio setting (see page 75), set the MTS setting to Stereo. If
already set to Stereo, switch to Mono (which may reduce background noise
during weak stereo broadcasts).
If the Speaker option is set to Off and the Audio Out option is set to Fixed (in
order to output the sound to your audio system), use your audio receiver to adjust
the sound (see page 75). Or, to use the TV remote control, set the Audio Out
option to Variable.

If your digital still camera has an internal memory, you can view the files in the
internal memory but cannot edit them. To edit the files, make a copy to a media
such as Memory Stick in your digital still camera.
Some variations of MPEG1 movies may not play back correctly.
Make sure the image file is a JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg) file or an MPEG1 (.mpg, .mpeg)
file.
Make sure the USB device is connected properly (see page 58).
Check the Filter option setting (see page 67).
Check the Select Folder setting (see page 67) and ensure that files are either in
DCF directories if Digital Camera Folders is selected (see page 67), or in the
currently selected folder if Select a Folder is selected (see page 67).
The maximum number of files the Photo/Video Viewer can display is 2,000 files
total, including all JPEG, MPEG1, and MP3 files.
JPEGs captured using a digital video camera may appear to display motion in full
screen. This is a result of the way digital video cameras record still images, and is
not a result of a malfunction with the TV.

view high frame-rate MPEG movies, use a device that supports USB 2.0 and
Memory Stick PRO media.
The file might not have information (EXIF data) that is usually generated when a
digital camera records a photo. In this case, it is not possible to save the rotation.
There might be insufficient space on the USB media to save the rotated file. Try
deleting one or more files and rotating the image again.
Set the File Information option to On or Off (see page 66).

MP3 files are played in alphabetical order, according to the folder in which they
are stored. If you want to change the playlist order, rename your files
alphabetically in the order in which you want them to play or create a MP3 playlist
(.m3u file) on a PC.
MP3 files on your USB media only can be played as background music during a
Slide Show (page 66).
Some variations of MPEG1 movies may not be compatible with the Photo/Video
Viewer.
MPEG movies recorded in VX Fine mode with Sony digital cameras cannot be
played back with the Photo/Video Viewer.
The quality of the movie when enlarged depends on the resolution of the MPEG1
file. See your camera’s instruction manual for details.
