I should have bought the BD-85, and used the HDMI. Right now, I have two HDMI's, (1 for the cable box, and 1 for the blu-ray). I have an ethernet cable from the router to the tv for streaming.
I have been out of home theater for a long time. Back then s video was the best cable for picture.
If panasonic adds Vudu, I will not get the 1080p, because I am using an ethernet cable from the router to tv? It's still a little confusing.
Small world... At V-Twin my screen name is Phat117. You definitely came to the right place for
home theater information.
Your BD-65 also has Vudu with the latest firmware update, I think it's 1.56. So if you want to try Vudu now, connect
the ethernet to the player instead of the TV and use the player for streaming.
You should have no problem getting 1080p, the ethernet cable should be faster then wifi.
I had the same router you're using and if you ever decide to stream wireless I would upgrade. I have 2 TVs, 2 BD players and
2 laptops, all in different locations and didn't want to run cables all over the house. I went with the
Netgear N600 dual band WND3700. it's made for streaming HD and I've had good luck with it.
Most of the complaints I see about streaming wireless are usually because the router is not up to task.
The G25 you have is a great set. I have a 42G25 in my bedroom.
