Get the best picture
Because BRAVIA HD Ready and Full HD televisions have a higher screen resolution than standard TVs, you may need to adjust the screen resolution of your computer to get the best possible picture.
If you have an HD Ready television you should set your computer’s screen resolution to 1280 by 720 pixels.
If you have a Full HD television, you should set you computer’s screen resolution to 1920 by 1080 pixels.
If your computer doesn’t support the full resolution of your TV, use the closest available resolution.
