If your Sony TV has an android system, you only need an application which acts as a dlna server that identifies itself as a dlna server on your network. Your tv will, when instructed, scan for dlna servers. It will only find dlna servers that have been activated on your computer.
When you activate a program that actually is a dlna server, you can find this server on your tv. You can then access the media that particular server has access to. For example, if you activate the windows media player server, your tv will find that server and you can access only the media windows media player has in its library. This works similar for all applications acting as a dlna server.
