I'm joining the confused group. I have a DMP-BD85 (US version) and the manual gives no mention of DLNA support. Manual here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPER...MPBD85-MUL.PDF
Now, under Playable discs/Cards/USB devices:
SD SD, SDHC, SDXC MPEG2, AVCHD, JPEG
USB USB devices (up to 128GB) DivX, MP3, JPEG
Page 31: The contents of the USB device cannot be
USB devices connected using USB extestion cable other
than the included or a USB hub may not be recognized by
If inserted during playback the USB device may not be
recognized by this unit.
If two USB devices other than Wireless LAN adaptor are
connected simultaneously, they will not be recognized by
Now if I search the Panasonic GLOBAL site under EU and The G Series TVs, I find mention of DLNA:http://panasonic.net/avc/viera/eu201.../g_plasma.html
Under Viera Cast it mentions "USB terminals for a USB Keyboard" then:
"Make your home even more comfortable by linking your digital home appliances with DLNA. This new system lets you share images, music and other content through DLNA-compatible TVs, computers connected to a router over a LAN network. You can also enjoy this content in different rooms. For example, you can watch still and motion images that are saved onto your PC on a large-screen TV. Using a Wi-Fi connection lets you connect devices anywhere in the house over a wireless network for the most flexible installation ever"
Now, looking at the US version of G20 Plasma manual, DLNA is not mentioned. And I can not find the EU manual for DMP-BD85, only a firmware update download. So, I don't know what the deal is.
Do the US consumers not get DLNA or are instructions to follow later? Using a USB keyboard would be nice as well :-).
I'll look for some more info later. Probably need to register my BD85 and then ring them up for support and ask them since 'they' said it has DLNA, HOW????
