I have a Panasonic full HD TV with built-in Freesat and Freeview. Model number is TX-L37G10B, full HD 1080p. It has an ethernet port, four HDMI sockets but no USB, so it won't take a dongle. It also has ports for Common Interface, Digital Out, SCART, and all the other usual phono connections. It's about 3 years old so I figure that it might have been produced a tad early for USB connectivity. It does not have built-in Wi-fi. I don't watch 'catch-up' telly very often but it would be useful to have it when I need it, for missed programmes which for whatever reason I haven't been able, or forgotten, to record. Based on my own research, I recently invested in a pair of TP-Link Homeplugs along with a 5-metre Belkin Cat 5e cable. I connected everything up, and that was dead simple. Paired the plugs as recommended and thought, here we go. And, indeed, I am now able to access iPlayer (but only iPlayer, and only BBC programmes to boot - no 4 OD or anything like that) on my telly, so the plugs and the connections are all working fine. However, there are two problems. The first is that programmes take FOREVER to download: OK, so I can go off and make a cup of tea. But the second, and more frustrating aspect, is that once I have the selected programme up and running, even at standard def, a few minutes into the show and it just freezes up; starts again; freezes again; and so on. HD is impossible. No-one can watch TV this way and not think about the most painless form of suicide. Now, the thing is, I can download and watch programmes effortlessly on my PC, which is a fairly powerful beast, custom-built, and relatively new, so I'm assuming the problems I've described are really nothing to do with line speed (where I live I get about 9.5 Mb/s download speed); in which case, I'm assuming that it's the software/hardware in the TV that isn't able to keep up. As I've noted above, the TV is about 3 years old, which in the days of analogue was nothing, but in these ever-changing digital times is an eternity. Interestingly, the iPlayer page as viewed on my PC monitor is way more sophisticated than the one I see on my TV, so I really am wondering if the problem lies with the TV. I'm pretty certain it must, but I don't know enough about the technology to understand why. I can't think of anything else. Incidentally, I take it that if I decided to buy a Humax box (eg DTR-T1000 with YouView) or similar 'smart' box in future, and use the ethernet connection on that rather than the one on the TV, the broadcast quality and availability of catch-up material would increase exponentially? Sincere apologies for the length of this post. If anyone has any answers, I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
