Hi,

Not sure exactly which model you have but this manual is for a 2008 Bravia:

http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/4114592411.pdf

Pg 6 describes how to auto-tune the TV, but in summary:

1. Press -/-
2. Press up/down arrow to select Antenna or Cable
3. Press -/-
4. TV starts searching for channels
5. Once complete, you have the option to sort the channels, but you don't have to.
6. Press MENU to exit.

Best Regards,

Richard

Sorry for delay but I had to go out before you sent an answer. I just couldn't find the manual you show apart from something which appeared to be in Russian and so I logged off. Even-so I tried to follow the points 1 to 6 that you list but couldn't get started, eg What does -/- mean, there's nothing like that on my control!. I rather hoped you would take me step by step through what I had to do, and now I've lost heart. My son will come tomorrow to help and if he is not succesful I will call in a local person to help.

Hi John,

If you could provide the Sony Model number I'm sure I could be more specific.

I am pleased to say your reply guided me some way insofar as I eventually traced the manual supplied when we bought the set. I found a similar section to the one described by you, and, after a lot of fiddling about, the programmes magically appeared. All now seems to be in order.


I fear the writers of the manuals think that everyone that buys these sets have a far higher IQ than me. Thanks for your time and help but I can't give a report any better than OK and trust you will understand.

Hi John,

That's fine, glad to hear it's all working now.

Best Regards,

Richard
