How do I get the IP address of my Sony Bravia TV I need to

Customer Question

How do I get the IP address of my Sony Bravia TV? I need to give this information to the 'send from PC to TV' program. The readme file for this program says 'This
can be found from the TV menu. Press "Home" on the TV remote and navigate to the following -
Settings -> Internet Video -> Device Information
However the Internet Video link does not appear in my Settings menu and I can't get the device information.
Internet TV itself works fine, it's just sending from PC to TV

Can you please double check the model number of your TV?

 

I cannot find any info on the model number - KDL32NX503U

 

 

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

OK Jon, I hope this helps. The model number sometimes has a hyphen in it and no letter 'U' at the end: KDL-32NX503

Sony link to this model:

http://www.sony.co.uk/product/t32-nx-series/kdl-32nx503

 

As I said, I have easily connected my TV to the internet - this didn't require the TV's IP address - and can stream content without difficulty. However when trying to send from my PC to TV using the Sony plugin on my PC (see below) I get a 'Content Error' message on my TV screen. It's clearly receiving something because the TV picture goes off. It's step 3 of the setup below I can't get to, It doesn't show 'internet video/device information' when I press the 'settings' button.
