Other Operations

Using the Control for

HDMI Function for

“BRAVIA” Sync

This function is available on TVs with the

“BRAVIA” Sync function.

By connecting Sony components that are compatible with the Control for HDMI function via an HDMI cable, operation is simplified.

• Some functions can only be used if the connected TV is compatible, and require prior setting via the TV.

Refer to the operating instructions of the TV.

• To use the System Audio Control function, you need to make an audio connection between the system and

TV (page 22).

Using “BRAVIA” Sync

Control for HDMI - Easy Setting

You can set the system’s [Control for HDMI] function automatically by enabling the corresponding setting on the TV.

For details about the Control for HDMI

function, see “[HDMI Settings]” (page 63)

One-Touch Play

When you press N on the remote, the system and your TV turn on, and your TV’s input is set to the HDMI input to which the system is connected.

System Audio Control

You can simplify operation to enjoy sound from the TV or other components.

You can use the System Audio Control function as follows:

• When the system is turned on, the sound of the

TV or other components can be output from the speakers of the system.

• When sound from the TV or other components is output via the speakers of the system, you can change the speakers to which TV sound is output by pressing

SPEAKERS TV yAUDIO.

• When sound from the TV or other components is output via the speakers of the system, you can adjust the volume and turn off the sound of the system by operating the TV.

WEP applies security to communications to prevent outsiders from intercepting communications or intruding into your wireless network. WEP is a legacy security technology that enables older device which do not support

TKIP/AES to be connected.

WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK

(TKIP)

TKIP is a security technology developed in response to the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP assures a higher security level than WEP.

WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)

AES is a security technology that uses an advanced security method distinct from WEP and TKIP.

AES assures a higher security level than WEP or

TKIP.

About wireless LAN security

Since communication via the wireless LAN function is established by radio waves, the wireless signal may be susceptible to interception. To protect wireless communication, this system supports various security functions. Be sure to correctly configure the security settings in accordance with your network environment.

No Security

Although you can easily make settings, anyone can intercept wireless communication or intrude into your wireless network, even without any sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of unauthorized access or interception of data.
