How were you able to update the firmware? I believe in the past I could do it through the ethernet cable but I can't do that anymore for whatever reason.
Anyone with a CD image that would be willing to take a few bucks to send this poor soul a copy of the firmware? I contacted Panasonic and they told me they no longer mail copies to customers. They won't take my money either. It's this or a new player but it seems like such a waste to get rid of a player that I've been happy with.
Wow nevermind. After struggling for hours I finally got the player to update through the ethernet connection as before.
Reading this thread gave me the idea to go to viera cast which I never do because I use the player as a simple blu ray player.
Going to Viera Cast let me update the firmware.
Before I would go to setup, other, firmware. This screen would tell me there was an update available but it would direct me to the panasonic.net/support page. It wouldn't give me the option to download over the net to update.
Why would they design the player this way? Going to firmware in the setup menu should allow one to update the firmware instead of being directed to a Panasonic support page. Instead I had to hit the Viera Cast button to get things rolling.
I suppose they assume anyone wanting to update the firmware would be using the viera cast feature?
Oh well, I lost a few hours of my life. Maybe I should have just purchased a new player to save myself all of the headache.
Lesson learned, thanks Panasonic.
