I'm helping you right now....

Allow me time to type....

...not sure which sony bravia model you have but you probably just need to press the INPUT button repeatedly on the original Sony remote or the buttons on the tv itself until the directv picture comes on the tv.

If you need more help , I need the model number of your tv found on the back of the tv.

Appears the site sent you an automatic pop up for phone call service. This was not sent by me, and I am not available by phone. In the mean time we can continue our chat...

Reply back and tell me what part of my answer you need clarification on.

Expert:  Mike G. replied 3 months ago.

Look for the INPUT button on the Tv button panel. Press it repeatedly until directv picture comes on.

Not working, get model number off back of tv and reply back here.
