If you have a wireless box attached to your sky+ box, it will connect to your blu-ray player. In SETUP (bizarrely) choose the WIRED option. It will connect you WIRELESSLY and immediately update the firmware. Then off you go with complete wi-fi functionality. (Wireless box from Sky costs £21, less than half the Panasonic dongle). Trust me - itworkd!
The thing has a wired network connection, and will alwasy be sitting somewhere next ti the TV, so why the fuzz about it not having WiFi?I like to have the WiFi free for the netbook and other portable devices, and not waste the bandwith to a fixed utility.BTW, though I'm happy with the player, the Network Drive facilities seem to be pretty useless, and the Internet portal is at least horribly annoying with the beep that seems can not be switched-off.......And though the DNLA player does see the .wmv and .avi files on the network drive (which it doesn't want to connect to as network drive) it doesn't play any of these files.. But, no problem playing the music colledtion from the same network drive.....
Hi JonHow exactly do you connect this machine to Sky+, so you are able to share it's Wifi connection?As another point, I have a Panasonic Viera TV which I have got a wifi adaptor connected to. Could I possibly just make an additional connection (ie: as well as the HDMI) and get this BluRay player connected to the web that way?
how to make it multi zone
Under DLNA this player is not able to play more of DivX files, mp3 and another media files. The workaround - use network driver connection, but this is not correct info in your review. Please, be careful with info and check it twice when you share important info with your readers!!! I like Panasonic products, but this player has and another problem. Many of mkv files are tearing, especially if they are more 1GB!!! I am not very impressed. On the other hand I have Panasonic vier a Smart TV and this is the best TV ever. Play everything, work with high performance and etc.
