Panasonic Support is Awful
on 28 June 2013
Device works okay, interface is a bit laggy. Netflix support is good but you cannot record live TV while you watch netflix. Also minor little annoyances with the interface like you cannot punch in a channel number while browsing the channel guide. Picture is good and 1080p looks great.
DLNA on my box didnt work though, and I had to contact support, they had me reset it to factory defaults, reset my router to factory defaults, take all the security and firewall settings off my windows 7 PC and still DLNA wont work! My iPad can see my DLNA server fine, and I can run a ping command to this panasonic box from my windows 7 PC.
After all this Panasonic Support tells me I have to buy a 3rd party piece of software (I wont name it cause I googled reviews on them and its worthless) to make it work! The manual says nothing about needing a 3rd party piece of software to make DLNA work, frankly this really pissed me off, hence the 2 star reviews.
Im sure with a patch or two the box could be really good. But for now Panasonic Support has ruined it for me.
Edit: I saw Amazon is advertising it as having a web browser and Wifi, it has neither. Buyer beware.
