- The Screen Sharing limitation is due to copyright restrictions.
- The TV cannot be the Host when using the Conference Calling feature. When invited, the Host's name appears on the incoming call dialog box with audio only listed. If the Host's name does not appear in the screen, the Host's account information should be added in your Skype Contacts. On a conference call, the TV screen will be black. If you want to see a list participant names, you need to select Show Participants.
- Call Waiting: When a Skype user makes a PC-to-Bravia call, there is NO Call Waiting message if the TV is already on another call. The Caller PC shows a text message that the person is busy. Unlike the Skype software on a computer that have Call Waiting, you cannot place one party on hold and talk to another party.
