    Not fair doing it through Facebook, I despise those commies and refuse to use them. :D

    Roku-Is it worth it?

    I just got the 2 XS Angry Birds edition and love it with the exception of a few things: The bluetooth remote seems to have issues, it won't pause/start a movie smoothly and I can't get the Birds to fly the same each time (May be me, don't know yet). Closed captioning doesn't work properly, lip...

    DirecTV HD 20 Receiver

    I have bad eyes, perhaps it is an HD20, or I just can't type, LOL. No, my GF cancelled her service and they said they only wanted the DVR back and they sent one box. Account is closed and I have this receiver. I just looked at the label and it says H20.

    DirecTV HD 20 Receiver

    I have an HD 20 receiver w/remote for sale. I have no idea what it's worth, make me an offer and pay shipping & it's yours. Works great, we had it on my GF's daughters TV. Works fine, no balance against it, we moved and can't have satellite where we are.

    Combining OTA & Cable to TV

    Thanks guys, I'll use a switch. I hoped there was an easy way to use the TV tuner for both sources on a single cable. I am using my TV to tune both sources.

    Netflix: Streaming or discs by mail?

    I do both. I became disabled a little over a year ago and I stream a ton of stuff from Netflix. I can turn a movie around and put it back in the mail the same day, so I usually receive 3 DVD's per week. I consider that a great deal for $8/month. I also use Redbox on my "dry" days and a freebie...

    Combining OTA & Cable to TV

    I have an outdoor antenna and Basic Cable, which I only use for the guide, free music, free VOD and the Discovery channel. I need a way to combine the OTA digital input and the cable signal, as my TV has a single input. I tried a common splitter but I get really bad noise on the cable side. Do I...

    Netflix speed on Comcast

    Maxing out is not my problem, it's been dog slow since the install. As I stated, everything except Netflix is streaming HD. I connected after I posted at HD but it only lasted for 10 minutes then it bumped down to about 1.5 Mb speed. Very frustrating. I am watching with a Panasonic Blu-ray...

    comcast pricing...what the

    I just went with Comcast and got their "Blast" package for $39 for the first 6 months. Includes Internet speeds up to 25 Mb, Basic TV and streaming with a STB. I only got it because I wanted the guide capability for locals plus the streaming. It should complement my Netflix very well. I'm...

    Have you tried doing a system recovery back to before the date you installed the toolbar?

    Netflix speed on Comcast

    Hi Guys, I have a dilemma. I just moved and wanted faster streaming, as I was stuck at 3 Mb with Qwest for the last 2 years so I chose Comcast. My package states "up to" 25 Mb speed so I got it. On my computer, I get speeds up to 18 Mb. On my Blu Ray player I get VUDU's speed test off the...

    Netflix Format issue

    Hi Don, as I said, I know what I'm doing with my equipment, I've had HD since it's inception and am a home theater geek. Nothing changed on my gear. I use a Panny BD-65 BR player hooked to a 42" Panny Plasma. I always have the TV on FULL mode for natural HD. Something happened to my second post...

    Netflix Format issue

    I hope this is the proper spot for this. Just this evening my Netflix started looking weird. I have small black bars top and bottom for all the shows and it is slightly squished vertically. It is not my TV, I know what I am doing. The menu is fine, but every show that I watch looks weird. Even...

    Netflix is putting the hurt on prices!

    mdram, if you find a contact email, I'd appreciate if you could post it here. I've scoured the website and can't find anything but a phone number. Thanks.

    happy 90th birthday to dave brubeck

    Happy birthday Dave, I've enjoyed seeing him in concert several times. He is one of my all time favorites. I was fortunate enough to see Lionel Hamptom play when he was like 92 and he could still make the vibes sing.

    Anyone know when Panasonic will update the Netflix interface?

    I just watched Netflix at a friends house on Wii and the interface is awesome. It allows browsing just like on a PC. I have a Wii bit of jealousy, I want to be able to play my movies without having to logon my PC. I know that other machines have this too, but will it ever come to Panasonic? I...

    Netflix is putting the hurt on prices!

    I have the BR option but watch mostly streaming. I am off work permanently now due to disability, so I am able to watch my disc and get it back in the mail the same day. This allows me to get 3 discs/week as there is a distribution facility in my town and they ship the same day they receive...

    Panasonic and Vudu

    So is Panasonic not supporting the apps on VUDU? I want those more than VUDU, I think it is way too expensive for a 24 hour rental. Personally, I'll stick to Netflix.

    The new download is here and it works. Thanks Panasonic and Netflix for getting this resolved quickly. No Vudu though.

    Panasonic and Vudu

    Sorry, I jumped the gun, these stupid players won't allow you to "downgrade" the firmware.

    Panasonic and Vudu

    I got through to tech support and they are working on the issue with Netflix. In the meantime, I downloaded the last version from their website and reinstalled it.

    Panasoinc Blu-Ray Software Update Today-Not Good My player updated the software today and now Netflix won't load. It begins loading, then the lettering goes huge then returns to the main menu where I can choose my application. Every other network app seems to work properly. Has this happened to...

    Hey guys, I hope this is in the proper forum, if not, please move it. Is anyone experiencing quality issues with Netflix? I have a 3 mb DSL connection and during the day I get all but 3 of the quality bars lit up and the pq is great. But come around 5 pm every night my quality drops about 4...

    Finally stepped into the Blu-ray world

    So much for BD Live, I thought it was tied to the disc it's on. All I could find is a bunch of trailers from Sony. Wasn't really worth my time to go in there. Is it ever any different in there? Or is it just a place for Sony to showcase stuff?

    Finally stepped into the Blu-ray world

    Thanks for the tip, I put a 2GB card in and it's working. I should read the manual more carefully next time, it's on page 18. Thanks again.
