Hi annangers and welcome.

If you want to share movies, music and photos across a wireless network, you need to install Server software on your PC.  Have a look at the Sony Homestream free software available here: -

If you want to see the computers desktop, you will need to connect with a VGA cable.

Re: How do I connect my PC to my Bravia TV

Hi there

 

If you just want to use Google on the TV, you can use the TVs inbuilt browser.  This works for simple things.  However the TVs inbuild browser can be a little restrictive.  There are two ways to connect your PC to your TV, and display what is on the PC.

 

Option 1:

The most simplest solution is to use a HDMI cable, to connect the two, then simply change the input source on the TV to the correct HDMI port.

 

Option 2:

If you have Windows 8.1 AND an Intel Network card that supports Miracast, and Intel graphics display, you can use the screen mirroring function of Windows 8.1 to wirelessly display what is on your PC to the TV.  However in real world use, this can be fidelly, and hit-and-miss.

 

 

Wifi Direct is where you specifically 'throw' media content from a device such as a PC/Smartphone/Tablet to the TV.  It will not Mirror the screen on your PC.

 

Cheers
