You can manage BRAVIA Professional Display from your PC via RS-232C.
To use this function, you need to set the RS232C control to Via serial port:
- [HOME] Settings
- RS232C control
- Via serial port
You must then switch to Normal mode or Pro mode because this function does not work in Pro settings mode when Via serial port is set to a setting other than Via HDMI port.
