Many of us have heard more than once that digital TV is in many ways different from analog, which is quite similar to it. The first thing that catches your eye when comparing these two types of television broadcasting is image quality. When a digital television is connected, the picture is clearer and practically has no interference, since the signal quality does not depend on the environment and other factors.
In addition, digital TV is different in that it has a program guide, which can be viewed by pressing a specific button on the remote control. Also, on some channels, you can independently adjust the audio tracks and connect subtitles.
A few years ago, you could connect such a television exclusively with the help of special consoles. To date, modern Sony Bravia TVs do not need additional devices and can receive a signal directly. In this article, we will take a closer look at how to set up digital TV.
Sony TV setup
If you just connected Sony Bravia and turn it on for the first time, then you will need to first select a language from the list provided. Next, you must establish Russia as a country and come up with a pin code. It will be required to manage programs that are under parental control. By entering the PIN code it will need to be confirmed by re-entering and saving it in the device memory.

The next step is the choice of operating mode and location. In the first option, you should select "Home", and in the second indicate how the TV is located: on a table or floor stand. The sound quality will depend on this.
Auto tuning Sony Bravia
If this is your first time connecting Sony Bravia, then after performing the above steps, you will automatically switch to TV auto-tuning mode. If this is not the first time, then after switching on Sony, you will need to press the "Nome" or "Menu" button on the remote control. After that, you will need to go to the "Parameters" section, select "Auto-tuning digital channels" and confirm your decision.
When you complete all the above steps, you will be prompted to select the type of broadcast. If you want the TV to search only for digital channels, click on the “Digital TV” item. If you click “Digital and analog TV”, then he will search for both.
After that, in the connection type tab, you will need to select "Cable". A window will appear in front of you, which will indicate the following settings: “Frequency”, “Scan Type” and “Network ID”. Initially, they have default values and can not be changed. You can also select an operator from the proposed list or leave “Other”. After everything is selected, you just have to click “Start” and wait until Sony Bravia displays all available TV channels and radio stations.
Manual tuning Sony Bravia
If the channels were not found during auto-tuning or very few were found, you can try connecting the TV in another way. To do this, after you get to the “Settings” section, you will need to select the “Settings” item or, as it may also be called, “System Settings”. Then select “Channel Settings” and the “Digital” item. Then you should repeat all the above points until you reach the choice of parameters. Here you will need to manually enter values that can be clarified by the operator.
