IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check the Applicable Products and Categories section of this article before starting these steps.

IMPORTANT: Using an HDMI® cable that is not high-speed will prevent the 3D signal from passing to the 3D device.

  1. Using a high-speed HDMI cable, connect a 3D-compatible player (Blu-ray Disc® player, cable box, satellite receiver, etc.) to a 3D-compatible Audio/Video (A/V) stereo receiver or a Home Theater system.
  2. Using another high-speed HDMI cable, connect the 3D-compatible A/V receiver or Home Theater system to the 3D TV.

NOTE: The Sony® 3D-compatible A/V receiver or Home Theater system may require a system software (firmware) update to support 3D. Downloads are posted on your model support page.

For A/V receivers or Home Theater systems that are not 3D compatible, connect the 3D-compatible player to the 3D TV using a high-speed HDMI cable. Then connect the A/V receiver or Home Theater system to the TV using a separate audio connection.
