Step 2: Connecting the System

For connecting the system, read the information on the following pages.

Do not connect the AC power cords (mains leads) of the unit and surround amplifier to a wall outlet

(mains) until all the other connections are made.

To assemble the speakers, refer to the supplied “Speaker Installation Guide.” (BDV-E980W only)

• When you connect another component with a volume control, turn down the volume of the other components to a level where sound is not distorted.

Connecting the speakers

To connect speaker cords to the speaker

You need to connect a speaker cord to each of the following speakers:

• BDV-E980W: Front, center, and surround speakers.

• BDV-E780W: Center and surround speakers.

The connector of the speaker cords and the color tube are color-coded based on the speaker type.

Be sure to match the speaker cords to the appropriate terminals on the speakers: the speaker cord with the color tube to 3, and the speaker cord without the color tube to #. Do not catch the speaker cord insulation (rubber covering) in the speaker terminals.

A

HDMI cable connection

If your TV has an HDMI jack, connect to the TV with an HDMI cable. This will provide better image quality compared to other types of connections.

When connecting with an HDMI cable, you need to select the type of output signal when performing

the Easy Setup (page 29).

For further HDMI settings, see “[HDMI Settings]” (page 63).

About Audio Return Channel

If your TV is compatible with the Audio Return Channel function, an HDMI cable connection also sends a digital audio signal from the TV. You do not need to make a separate audio connection for listening to TV sound. For setting the Audio Return Channel function, see [Audio Return Channel]

(page 63).

B

Component video cable connection (for non-European/non-Saudi

Arabian models)

If your TV does not have an HDMI jack, but has component video input jacks, connect to the TV with a component video cable. Picture quality will be improved compared to using a video cord connection.

When connecting with a component video cable, you need to select the type of output signal in the Easy

Setup (page 29).

C

Video cord connection

If your TV does not have an HDMI jack or a component video input jack, make this connection.

D

Digital optical cord connection

This connection sends an audio signal to the system from the TV. To listen to TV sound via the system, perform this connection. With this connection, the system receives a Dolby Digital multiplex broadcast signal and you can enjoy multiplex broadcast sound.

• You can enjoy the TV sound by selecting the “TV” function (page 30).

• If your TV does not have a digital optical output jack, you can connect the unit and your TV with an audio cord for

listening to TV sound via the system. For connection details, see “Connecting the other components” (page 24).

Connecting the other components

When a component you wish to connect to the system has an HDMI

(OUT) jack

You can connect a component that has an HDMI (OUT) jack such as a set-top box/digital satellite receiver or PLAYSTATION

®

3, etc., with an HDMI cable. An HDMI cable connection can send both video and audio signals. By connecting the system and the component using an HDMI cable, you can enjoy high-quality digital picture and sound via the HDMI (IN 1) or HDMI (IN 2) jack.

• Video signals from the HDMI (IN 1/2) jacks are sent to the HDMI (OUT) jack only when the “HDMI1” or

“HDMI2” function is selected.

• To send an audio signal from the HDMI (IN 1/2) jacks to the HDMI (OUT) jack, you may need to change the audio

output setting. For details, see [Audio Output] in [Audio Settings] (page 62).

• You can change the audio input of a component that is connected to the HDMI (IN 1) jack to the TV (DIGITAL IN

OPTICAL) jack. For details, see [HDMI1 Audio Input mode] in [HDMI Settings] (page 63). (European models

only.)

Step 3: Connecting to the Network

• To connect the system to your network, you need to make network settings that suit your usage environment and

components. For details, see “Setting up the Network” (page 55) and “[Network Settings]” (page 64).

Select the method based on your LAN (Local Area Network) environment.

• If you use a wireless LAN

The system has built-in Wi-Fi, and you can connect the system to the network by making the network settings.

• If you use other than a wireless LAN

Connect to the network by making a LAN cable connection as follows.

• The placement distance between the unit and your wireless LAN router differs based on your usage environment.

If the system cannot connect to the network or the network connection is unstable, place the unit and the wireless

LAN router closer to each other. When you cannot place the unit and the wireless LAN router closer to each other, use the optional USB Wireless LAN Adapter (Sony UWA-BR100* only).

• To connect to a wireless LAN using a 5 GHz frequency band, you need the optional USB Wireless LAN Adapter

(Sony UWA-BR100* only).

* As of November 2010. The USB Wireless LAN Adapter may not be available in some regions/countries.

• You can also get the information for network settings from the following Sony support page:

The surround amplifier turns on automatically

(the LINK/STANDBY indicator turns green) when the main unit is turned on and wireless transmission is activated.

To specify the wireless connection

If you use multiple wireless products or your neighbors use wireless products, interference may occur. To prevent this, you can specify the wireless connection to link the main unit to the surround amplifier (Secure Link function). For

details, see “Further Settings for the Wireless

System” (page 54).
