As long as your TV is on the same network shouldn't it be found? As far as a LAN adapter, can't you just connect an Ethernet cable from the TV to the router?

You can always try a cleaning disc, too. I have a Maxell disc that's BDP compatible. You won't have to try to access the laser to clean it, either.

If I used a Y10-7-13 antenna, would I still need a UHF antenna for channels above 13? I can probably replace the wood parts to something for outdoor durability.
