For those of you on Mac OS X, this is what I did to access the web interface:
1. Plug a CROSS-OVER ethernet cable into the back of the KRP. Plug the other end into the ethernet port on your Mac.
Note: if you don't have a cross-over cable, you can do the same thing using two regular cables and an inexpensive ethernet hub: plug the KRP into the hub using one regular ethernet cable, then do the same thing with your Mac.
2. Follow the instructions on page 68 of the user manual to obtain the IP address for the KRP. I left the KRP set on DHCP.
3. Open System Preferences on your Mac and click the Network item.
4. Select the "Built-in Ethernet" item from the list on the left.
5. Click the Configure popup menu and choose "Using DHCP with manual address".
6. In the IP Address field, enter the IP address from step 2, but add 1 to the last digit. For example, if the KRP's IP address is "192.168.001.001
", enter "192.168.001.002
7. Launch Safari and turn off pop-up window blocking (ie. make sure "Block Pop-Up Windows" in the Safari menu is unchecked).
8. Enter the KRP's IP address in Safari's address field (eg. enter "192.168.001.001").
9. You *should* see a web page called "Web control system login". Enter "admin" in the password field.
At this point, a new window will open in Safari with the web control interface. You can change any of the standard settings on the TV directly from your web browser.
There are also some Email settings that instruct the KRP to send you emails when various events occur. For example, you can tell it to send you an email every 250 hours detailing its usage time.
Accessing the web control system is an interesting experiment, but it doesn't seem to be particularly useful for end users. Most of the web interface simply replicates features that are already available using the remote control directly.
