Answered by Robert Flynn

To use your Sony Bravia TV as a computer monitor wirelessly, you can utilize the screen mirroring feature available on your TV. Please note that the steps may vary slightly depending on the model of your TV.

1. Turn on your Sony Bravia TV and ensure it is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.

2. On your computer, open the settings and navigate to the display settings. The steps to access display settings may vary depending on your operating system.

3. Look for the option to connect to a wireless display or screen mirroring. On Windows, you can find this by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting “Display settings.” On Mac, click on the Apple menu, go to “System Preferences,” and then click on “Displays.”

4. Enable screen mirroring on your TV. To do this, tap the Home button on your TV remote and navigate to the settings menu.

5. In the settings menu, find and select “Screen mirroring,” “Miracast,” or a similar option. The location of this option may vary depending on your TV’s model and software version.

6. On your computer, click on the option to connect to a wireless display or screen mirroring. Your computer will scan for available devices.

7. Once your computer detects your Sony Bravia TV, select it from the list of available devices. You may need to confirm the connection on both your TV and your computer.

8. After the connection is established, your computer’s display should be mirrored on your Sony Bravia TV. You can now use your TV as a wireless monitor.

It’s important to note that screen mirroring may have some limitations, such as lower resolution or potential lag, compared to directly connecting your computer to a monitor. However, it can still be a convenient way to extend your computer’s display onto a larger screen.

If you encounter any issues during the setup process, make sure that both your TV and computer are up to date with the latest software updates. Additionally, consult the user manual or support documentation for your specific TV model, as the steps may differ slightly.

Using my personal experience, I have successfully used screen mirroring on my Sony Bravia TV to connect my computer wirelessly. The process was relatively straightforward, but I had to ensure that both my TV and computer were connected to the same Wi-Fi network. It’s worth mentioning that the quality and performance of the wireless connection may vary depending on various factors, such as the distance between the TV and the computer, Wi-Fi signal strength, and the capabilities of your TV and computer hardware.

By following the steps mentioned above, you can use your Sony Bravia TV as a wireless computer monitor using the screen mirroring feature.
