Maybe you didn't set them up to mirror each other? Go into System Preferences->Displays and change their arrangement in the Arrangement tab.
If you cant mirror or dont want to, you can probably drag the itunes window of your laptop screen and onto the tv. then you should be able to maximize without a problem
Check your screen settings on the Sony for the hdmi port you are plugged into. Under "display area" it should be set to "Full Pixel" to display your dock and menu bar properly.
