You can control it through Viera Link if you turn it on and your tv remote has the applicable buttons (and your brand of tv talks nice via hdmi too)

I downloaded the manual and it does not mention anything about controlling the unit via network commands.
The CD, DVD and BD discs can not be controlled via the network connection, so sorry, no.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass any more than we get to pick the ending of a play. High fidelity is an unbiased, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original source's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

That is what I was afraid of. Thank you both.

Andy, the format you're using with your camera may be the problem. jpeg files are very popular and convenient. However, jpeg files can change when you transfer the file. jpeg is referred to as a "lossy format" since some of the data is discarded when you make changes to the file. Formats such as RAW, PNG or BMP are better choices since format preserves all the original data when you make changes to the photo. Those formats are referred to as "lossless formats." I shoot photos in RAW then convert to jpeg when sending a photo to someone.
The only downside with the lossless formats, they are much larger and consume a lot more memory on the card. Of course, larger files means less pictures per card.

Here's a link to article that will provide information on the subject:

And jpegs are the only still image format the DMP-BD35 can play, so any further discussion of what "might" be better is irrelevant. RAW, PNG, and BMP will not work on his machine. He also had no gripes about the image quality he got from his camera when he played the SD card directly rather than burning it to disc. He wrote: "I put the SD card in my 35 and the pictures looked fantastic. I then down loaded the pictures onto a top quality dvd and the pictures lost a little sharpness. Not horrible but noticeable. Seems like the computer is the obvious culprit. Any other suggestions? "


I'm confident his direct images on the camera card he finds to be "fantastic" are jpeg. Moving, aka transferring, such files from one location to another causes no alteration to the file itself so they would look identical if played from a memory card or from an optical disc or from a hard drive, his issue is he burned them to disc in "stand alone, set-top DVD player compatible mode" (rather than directly as a computer file) so his software down res'd the camera's multi-megapixel image down to VGA quality [480p/ ~ .3 Megapixel] so as to make it NTSC friendly and playable on grandma's DVD player from the 90's.

You will need the repeater. The network port is for firmware upgrades and BD Live only.
