Digital TV connection on many modern Sony Bravia TVs is now possible directly. It is enough to execute simple commands in the settings of your TV.
Initial setup of channels on a Sony Bravia TV
When connecting Sony Bravia for the first time, you must select a language from the list shown. The country is set to Russia and the pin code is set. It is needed when managing programs in case of using parental control. After entering the PIN-code, it is confirmed again and saved in the device’s memory. Then the mode of use (“Home”) and location (tabletop or using a floor stand) are selected. This will affect the sound quality. https://youtu.be/jpPu6WqhKGQ
Automatic tuning of digital channels on Sony Bravia
The first time you connect a Sony Bravia TV after the initial settings, it will automatically switch to auto settings. If turning on for the first time, then for this you need to use the “Home” or “Menu” button on the remote control. In the “Parameters” section, “Auto tuning digital channels” is selected and the action is confirmed. After performing the specified manipulations, it is proposed to select the type of broadcast. If you want the TV to search exclusively for digital channels, then you need to select “Digital TV”. Selecting “Digital & Analogue TV” will search for both. Then, in the “Connection Type” tab, you need to go to the “Cable” item. A window with settings parameters will appear:
- “scan type”;
- “network identifier”.
The default values are preset here and there is no particular need to change them. It is possible to choose an operator from the specified list or leave “Other”. In the “Scan Type” section, select the “Full Scan” mode. After all parameters have been selected, the “Start” button is pressed. Then you need to wait until the entire list of available TV channels and radio stations is displayed on Sony Bravia. Then you need to sort the found digital programs. From the list that appears, you need to select the ones you need and fix them using the arrows on the remote control. Unwanted channels are removed.
After the digital channel setup is complete, it is recommended that you restart your Sony Bravia TV. If the search for channels is not enough of them, you will need to enter additional information in order to tune cable or satellite TV.
Noteworthy is the bottom area on the Sony Bravia TV OSD. The bottom menu bar contains tips for using the remote control buttons in relation to certain actions. How to sort channels on Sony Bravia TVs: https://youtu.be/Qg3Cv1DQqE0

If not enough channels were found as a result of automatic tuning, you can use another method to connect the TV. In this case, in the “Parameters” section, select the “Settings” item (it can also be called “System Settings”). Select “Channel setup” and go to “Digital”. Then you need to repeat all the actions described in the previous paragraph. When the turn comes to select the parameters, you will need to manually enter the values, which, if necessary, are clarified with the operators.
