I can't believe Panasonic still has no fix for this firmware update. I'm still streaming at 720p max with the last update (v1.27) and 250mbps fiber optic connection. :mad:

It was the firmware update. Panasonic updated the firmware to "improve network functions" for that model as well, seems like you have the same issue as me. That's why you're only getting 720p.

Ask them to open a ticket so that their Netflix team looks into the issue. Also, you have to let them know you were getting 1080p forever, then after "upgrading" the firmware, it no longer goes above...

I would said limiting streams to 720p on a 1080p TV is more of a downgrade, than a fix. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a 1080p set.

DLNA seems to be giving issues now as well with this...

Did that already also, they were of no help. And blamed it on my ISP. Told me to contact them, since there is nothing more than can do for me.

I guess it's confirmed that the firmware update they pushed out doesn't allow higher than 720p streams on the Netflix app now. You're supposed to get 1080p on Super HD videos.

Feel free to call...

The Vudu HDX movie plays, but there is no indication that it's streaming at 1080p. Or is the fact that it even plays mean that it's streaming at 1080p?

It seems you have to call because email or chat will not document the issue. Well that was a waste of my time.
