Mirroring your smartphone
There are 3 main protocols to connect your SONY TV KD49XG8305 to your phone:
- The DLNA protocol for “Digital Living Network Alliance” and its “UPnP”
- The AirPlay push protocol
- The LELink (“Low Energy Link”) protocol
To use them best on your SONY TV KD49XG8305, we recommend that you use a dedicated application.
A drop screen data transmission protocol allows the phone to be connected to the same network as the television.
A dedicated channel, via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, is then created. By clicking on the “Drop Screen” button of your phone, your mobile starts to search for the corresponding services.
The TV is then searched, the phone sends a video address to the TV, and when the TV receives the file, it starts playing.
Your TV can then be fully controlled by your phone.
Use the “TV box” function of your SONY TV KD49XG8305
No need to pay cable or satellite to access additional programs.
Generally, Smart TVs are able to work with an integrated decoder: there is no need to buy a separate decoder.
This saves you money.
You can use the built-in TV box and watch many movies, TV series and various shows online.
External storage with reading function
A USB stick or mobile hard drive allows you to download a video file to your computer, copy it, and play it on your SONY TV KD49XG8305 from this external media.
Video over the internet is often not very smooth when network conditions are not good.
Be careful to respect the copyrights when using this type of manipulation, however.
To summarize: using your SONY TV KD49XG8305
A Smart TV is a television with many more features than traditional TV.
Your SONY TV KD49XG8305 works with a full operating system and contains a software platform that allows third-party application software developers to develop their own applications, which can then be installed on your SONY TV KD49XG8305. Functions such as listening to music, watching videos, surfing the Internet, viewing photos, etc. can be activated.
Your SONY TV KD49XG8305 is an integration of a traditional TV set, a computer and a decoder.
On a smart TV, both the operating system and some applications are pre-installed.
These can be updated via the official menu on your SONY TV KD49XG8305, the App Store and other third party stores.
Updating via an app store is somewhat similar to what is available on today’s smartphones.
Of course, your SONY TV KD49XG8305 can also connect to external devices such as a digital set-top box, a Blu-ray player, a game console, an external receiver and many more.
