What type of analogue extension cable do I need to connect to my Android TV or Google TV?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Before you start

    • Some TV models released in 2016 come with an analogue extension cable. Check if an analogue extension cable is supplied with your TV.
    • The A/V connector must match the standards (wiring specifications) of the VIDEO IN (AV IN) connection on your BRAVIA TV.
    • Not all analogue adapter cables are compatible with Sony TVs. Even if the cable looks the same as in the pictures in this article, the standards may be different.
    • If you use a different type of cable, the image or sound may not output correctly (e.g. no picture or flickering can occur). 

    How to connect the analogue extension cable

    Use an extension cable with connector parts arranged in the following order from tip to base.
