    Your HDMI™-equipped VAIO® computer system can double as a multimedia playback device in your living room. Play picture slideshows or videos, listen to music, or enjoy DVD-Video and Blu-ray Disc™ (if so equipped) movies directly on your high definition television set.

    Note: The following Windows® desktop resolution settings can be used for the these display types:

    HD Display Type Desktop Screen Resolution
    1080p / 1080i 1920 x 1080
    1768 x 992
