Easy to use, attractive design, good features, up to normal expected Sony standard

Excellent picture and tuning in procedure

I have been unable to connect my laptop successfully to the TV. It does not recognise anything is connected? Plus there seems to be too many set up elements to change to set it up. This is also the case for my 40" model KDL-40HX703. There is nothing...
