Why is screen mirroring not working on my Sony TV?

There are several reasons as to why screen mirroring isn’t working on your Sony TV or Android device.

WiFi

Screen mirroring requires a stable WiFi connection. Otherwise you may experience the stream cutting out randomly. You may try restarting or resetting your router if you have that problem.

Another thing to keep in mind that both your sender and receiver device have to be connected to the same WiFi. In other case, they won’t be able to establish a connection.

How to connect soundbar to Sony TV

A soundbar is a great addition to any Smart TV. It makes the experience of watching any content that much better. How? Well, while Smart TVs have great picture quality, the flat screen usually has little space for a good sound system. That’s why you feel like turning the volume up during quieter parts but then get blasted in your face with noise during commercials!

A soundbar solves that issue giving you excellent sound quality. If you’re someone who cares about audio, it’s a must-have.

Before you begin with connecting a soundbar, have a look at the back of your Sony TV. Try to find and ARC or eARC HDMI socket. It will allow you to operate your soundbar with your normal TV remote.

If you don’t have ARC or eARC sockets on your TV, don’t worry. You can connect your soundbar using a TOS link, also known as a digital optical cable. There are also analog as well as Bluetooth connectible soundbars.

Connecting a soundbar to your Sony TV is as easy as plugging the cable to both devices and choosing the correct input in your audio settings!
