What model TV do you have? For this year's range, don't plug the TV into your pc, plug it into your internet connection and dowload it through viera connect marketplace.I want to use iplayer on my Panasonic TV, it is linked to my pc via broadband & twonkymedia, but I can only get TV viewing through Sky as no other signal in my area. How do I get iplayer? can anyone help?
Yes, a starter kit would come with two.Lorna said:Yes that sounds like what the BBC website suggested, do I need two then?
Is that a panasonic thing? Surely all it needs is an Internet connections just like on any other device that connects to iPlayer.To get iplayer, you need to connect up the TV to get Freesat. This is means another feed from your Sky dish.
You also need an internet connection - wired or wireless, but wired is more reliable.
Once you have these connections in place, you can get iplayer on the red button.
(At least, this worked for me!)
Do you have a Viera Cast button on your remote?No, I've connected to my Facebook through Viera, and You Tube, and my photo's etc that's great, I've got iplayer on my PC too but frustratingly I can't get it on the tele, it's not on the Viera selection available or in the "store" as far as I can see
If your TX-P42G20BA is a 2010 model then you might not be able to receive iplayer through Viera Connect even with the updates.I have a Panasonic TX-P42G20BA, where we live there is no TV reception even with aerial so we get TV via Sky only which doesn't have iplayer. I did look in Viera marketplace but couldnt see iplayer there, I will look again, is it definately available?
At the mo I have connect to my desktop pc via a wireless Panasonic dongle in the TV, I also have Sky Broadband.
On BBC website I read something about I might need a internet home plug "thing" I can't remember the exact wording! because of the streaming and download speeds required.
Downloaded ipayer files used to be viewable only through iplayer on the PC from which it was downloaded (and time limited). There were many tutorials on how to "hack" it so that it can be saved and played through other PC or player.So I have a slightly different issue. I live abroad and have downloaded ExPat Shield to allow me to access BBC iPLayer. I have a TX-L47ET50E smart TV connected to my home network. I am trying to work out how to view either streaming or download programs accessed via iPlayer. Cannot see how to do this via streaming but I also note that if I download a program as a .wmv file and put this into the windows media library then I would suppose this could be played either via the 'play to' function in windows media (but no 'device cannot be found') or via the TV media centre by selecting my PC, then going through successive menu choices to find the file (but no - file not supported').
I feel there should be a solution - Any Ideas?
