I have a few questions though.
1. I tried to do the firmware update and it does not seem to be working for me. I took some phone wire and hooked it up to the lan and the other end to both my phone line as well as the DSL outlet and tried to download. I received a message that said downloading was unavailable. Should I have it hooked up to the tv or the DISH receiver or was I doing it correctly by hooking it straight to the Blu Ray player?
2. Is there a way that I can hook up the tv as well as the BD60 to be wireless like my laptop? That is how I have the DLS router arranged.
3. Also, I was hoping that the remote for my tv would totally replace the BD60 remote but not all the features are available on the tv remote, Such as setup, drive, status, function and re-master...which I am still learning about.
4. Or, can I use the dvd remote for the tv? But I am missing buttons for the tv, dbs and a few others. I wish I could use one remote for everything without having to buy one of those 100 dollar remotes.
But if I can get the firmware update done that would be a good start.
Also, I just have it hooked up with an hdmi cable

Thanks for your help.
I went out to buy a belkin adapter and the guy sold me on a wireless bridge for $99. I got it home and pulled it out of the box and I was like...this looks like my router for my DSL. So I pulled the DSL router out of a spare bedroom and postioned it under the tv, plugged it in and voila'...it worked. I boxed up the bridge and I'll return it tomorrow.
The firmware update was 1.5 and it only took a few minutes to download.
I am going to call Panasonic and see if there is a way I can use one remote for both functions...tv and blu ray.
Also, can you / we use Netflix on this or is that a feature for Sony players.
One more...when I went to VIERA link the weather default automatically went to New York. I tried a few things to make DALLAS a permanent entry but it was not working for me. Is there a way to make the change permanent?
Is there a way I can use my wireless laptop to project onto the tv..it's a 42 inch Panny PZ85? I know I am suppose to use a DVI / HDMI cable , but I am trying to find a way around it. Everything else is wireless, why not this?
Thanks for everyone's help... Hope everyone enjoys their Easter Sunday.
