My parents just bought a 3D TC-P50UT50 Panasonic and are happy so far except for a few things. So, they put me to task at figuring it out...
His old TV, my father would use his computer that he rips all of his DVD and are in Mpeg format. He would copy the movies to his USB EXT 1TB drive, plug it in the old TV, and have his DVD readily available from the TB EXT drive.
This NEW TV seems to only read MKV video format.. So, my questions are..
What 'exact' (video encode specs) format will their new TV read and, can I share his movie folder on his computer (Wireless or Ethernet) and simply have the new TV networked, and read from the PC SHARE rather than plugging the USB EXT drive into it every time?
Searching online I have found nothing to answer these questions.. Will the TV even network into a computer LAN.. If so.. What protocol / VPN?
DAMMIT.. The manual says nothing to answer any these questions!
