    Please don't hijack other threads. I removed your other post in the ffmpegx section. And stop cross posting.

    Consult the manual and tell us which formats and resolutions are supported by this TV.

    Note that TVs are very fussy about what they will play. People don't like to hear this, but they are not "play anything" devices. The manual will have specific instructions about what it will and won't play. Most likely you're going to have to re-encode all of your files to standard definition size (720x576 or less) to get them to play.

    I'm pretty sure that ffmpegx can produce MPEG-1/2 output, but as I don't use that tool I cannot offer specific recommendations.

    Apparently not necessarily for just playback. According to this Sony article it should display at native file resolution at the middle of the screen, based on SD as full screen (judging by the image size). Only if one wants full screen, one needs to (up)convert. But that will just make a fuzzy picture.
