One useful connection included on most Sony Bravia HDTVs is a VGA, or D-sub video connection. This is the same type of connection used on most computer graphics cards. If your business computer has an extra VGA/D-sub connection, you can use a VGA/D-sub cable and, if desired, a 3.5 millimeter audio cord to connect them. Once connected, the Sony Bravia HDTV will function just like a monitor and, if you connect the audio cord, external speakers.
- Turn off your computer and reposition it so you can access the back ports. Plug one end of the VGA/D-sub cable into the VGA/D-sub connection and finger-tighten the attached screws until snug. Plug a 3.5 millimeter audio cable into the green audio-out port on your computer, if desired.
- Turn off your Bravia HDTV and insert the other end of the VGA/D-sub cable into the VGA/D-sub connection on the back. Finger-tighten the screws until snug. Insert the other end of the 3.5 millimeter audio cable into the audio-in port on your HDTV (right below the VGA/D-sub connection), if applicable.
- Turn on your computer and Bravia HDTV. Switch the input mode on your HDTV to the “VGA/D-sub” mode to see the video signal from your computer. Right-click on your computer’s desktop and select “Screen resolution” to configure the screen resolution and primary/secondary monitor setup.
