we need the info/answers to the questions provided by dlsayremn

in addition - what windows version is on the PC - XP, Vista, W7 W8 ?

what Iam trying to do is for me to view my home movies on my tv,
The TV will need to be able to support DLNA media servers to be able to do this and the PC will need to have the home videos on a dlna server - like windows media etcand in a format the TV will support - hence we need make and the exact models of the TV / Router and PC

Hi there, I have the same telly as you (tx-p42s20b) and the ethernet connection is for interactive services only! I purchased this TV thinking i could do the same as what you want to do but the simple answer is no you cant... Im hoping that Panasonic might give us the option in a firmware upgrade but im not holding my breath!

the dlna functionality has been available for some time on Panasonic Tvs - mine has it, but i was also promised by the shop that the portal would be having iplayer and on demand TV etc- but that has never materialised on this older model, as they changed the portal and the new portal is not supported on the older TVs.

so its possible it may never come ?

I would write to Panasonic Support - thats how I found out that my TV would not see the new services
