Accessory Review: Sony Cyber-shot Station CSS-HD1
The Cyber-shot Station CSS-HD1 isn't Sony's first dock, but it's the first one to offer component output to high definition television so you can enjoy your images in all their glory. We popped a T100 on it and gave it a test drive. Read our review for the results...

Is the Cyber-shot Station CSS-HD1 needed for HD viewing if one has a Sony KD-34XBR960 FD Trinitron Wega HDTV with built in memory stick viewer?..

Comment #1

If you can pop the memory stick into a slot on your TV (or anything connected to your.

TV), you don't need the Station to view the still images. Whether the TV (or other device) knows what to do with a movie file is another subject. But even the Station will only show 640x480 movies at best. The Station's advantage is (connecting through a composite connection to your TV) providing the slide show presentations (like that in the review) that the camera itself (not the storage medium or TV) creates...

RE: HDTV playback on Sony Cybershot cradle Hello,.

Would anybody be able to tell me if I can display HDTV images, taken on another camera[ mostly JPEGS] , downloaded to the memorystick, plugged into a Sony T-series[ eg DSC-T100 or 200] camera, plugged into the cradle? Or do they have to be all taken on the Sony?.

I don't have the review unit here any more, so I can't try that. I'd be surprised if it worked, though. You'd have to copy the files to the right directory on the card first of all. Not too hard. But if the camera checked the Exif header for the manufacturer name, you'd be hosed. And if it confirmed the model name (so it knew image dimensions, etc.

You'd be hosed if Sony didn't bother to implement generic playback, too and why would they bother? One quick test, though, is to load images on a Memory Stick, pop it into a T-series camera and hit playback. If it works there, it would most likely work in the Station, too. Kodak has a station with an SD card reader and a couple of USB ports that should work with anything. And then there's Apple TV, too, which just needs iTunes to display anything...

My HDTV has 5 inputs, namely.


Yellow ,Video.

White, Left Audio.

Red, Right Audio.


Does the Station have an S-Video output, which is a small round 4 pin plug ???? standard in Australia.

I must be certain of this before I order one ??.

Regards Peter..

No s-video output, but the composite video out will work with your TV's yellow video input (not exactly HD though!). You can download the user manual here:
